Subtle Peppermint - Yummy! This is a great hot cocoa and with one spoon of sugar is a refreshing, yet warming drink. February 20, 2014
love it I love the peppermint and wish you would carry all year. It makes a perfect afternoon drink. January 29, 2014
FYI - MILK NEEDED/NOT A WATER MIX Have had the Peppermint Hot Cocoa many times at Starbucks stores and LOVED IT - so I thought I'd get some to have at home. For snow days and other times when getting out is not an attractive option. However after my shipment arrived I was disappointed to find that this formulation should be made with MILK instead of WATER. I don't ALWAYS have milk in the house, and I also think that most people are probably assuming that just water would be needed - so as I said, DISAPPOINTING. I'm going to try it with just water, just as a test - we'll see. I'm also going to check to see if the other hot cocoa mixes also require milk. January 27, 2014
Where's the peppermint? I am not a coffee drinker. So when I go to the Starbucks store to buy coffee for my husband I always purchase the peppermint hot chocolate for myself. Its my absolute favorite drink ever hands down. So when I seen the mix in the store I flipped out. I was so excited to purchase this and go home to enjoy. I used milk and made sure it was the exact amout called for on the package. My first sip I thought man how CHALKY tasting!! It was bitter and no trace of peppermint at all. I kept mixing it to be sure it was fully mixed well. I added more milk. Nothing helped the chalky texture. The taste remained bitter. Overall I was seriously disappointed. I expected way better for a Starbucks product than this. January 24, 2014
