Orange Hot Chocolate

As I mentioned before, while at Apple Hill last week, I purchased many delicious treats!

So when I purchased this festive hot drink mixture at Apple Hill last weekend in honor of the upcoming spooky holiday, I was expecting something on the same level of deliciousness. Plus the bonus that I was as giddy as an 8 year-old to see it turn colors!

I assumed it was regular hot chocolate that either had hints of orange in it or just turned orange. Either way I was onboard.

So I heated up my water and soy milk, and eagerly poured the white mixture in to see it turn a brilliant creamy orange color. A sweet kinda vanilla-y scent wafted up. My first hint that this was going terribly wrong.

It tasted..... it tasted..... like  a melted orange creamsicle, heated, and diluted with water.
 *Mmmmh!* not.  Perhaps this would be better if you weren't expected at least a little cocoa in my HOT CHOCOLATE.

Not the best $1.50 I've ever spent. I'll be sticking with my swiss miss from now on, thanks.
