In previous reviews, I’ve made it no secret that I am a chocoholic, some stressful weeks more than others. Betty Crocker Double Fudge frosting eaten straight out of the tub with a spoon soothes a myriad of mental and emotional ailments.
And if you’re having a similar “make-it-all-better-I-need-sweets” spells, and you’ve gnarfed every speck of chocolate in the house and are still about to gnaw your arm off, this lovely flavored blend from TeaFrog is the next best thing.
As I’m playing “Where’s Waldo?” with the little zip-lock bag sample, I’m seeing nice large tea leaves, the cocoa bits, and cocoa-dusted mini-chips, enough for 2-3 per teaspoon. If you close your eyes and did a side-by-side sniff test with Chocolate and Cream and a box of devil’s food cake mix, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any differences.
Steeped and sipped straight up, the cocoa flavor backs off a little; but it’s a gorgeously creamy, cookie-pastry taste treat. It’s just fine on its own, and a little milk and sugar just increase the cakey goodness.
Highly recommended as an alternative to (or an accompaniment for) a large box of Russell Stover candy.
You can purchase TeaFrog Chocolate and Cream Flavoured Black directly from their website.
