Editor's note: For the next twelve weekdays until Christmas, we'll have a hot chocolate report for you. 'Tis the season. Today, we start with the gelateria Grom.
Price: $5.00 for a regular (12 ounces), $6.50 for a large (16 ounces), $0.50 extra for whipped cream
The deal: There's no hot water or milk added to this one. It's purely melted chocolate—a mix of Bolivian and Venezuelan. Dark chocolate people will like the bitterness, which almost borders on a roasted coffee bean flavor. And about as exciting as the drink itself is the whipped cream. Yeah, we had to get an extra plastic cup-ful. Fresh made inhouse, it's some some serious white fluff. Thick, barely sweetened, and totally worth the extra two quarters.
