Food + Drink Hot Chocolate

Welcome to a world of chocolate indulgence, where every hot chocolate flavour awaits…

Whether you call it hot cocoa, hot cacao, hot chocolate or drinking chocolate our principles will always stay the same: we pride ourselves on originality. After all, it’s what makes our chocolate stand out from the rest. And perhaps one of our most unique features is our vast range of hot chocolate flavours — from the classics to the weird, the whacky, and the wonderful.

To celebrate our core values and our ever-growing love for all things chocolate, let’s explore the tantalising world of our best hot chocolate flavours.

Let flavour bring feeling

There’s something inherently comforting about sipping on a steaming mug of hot chocolate. It warms you from the inside out, lifts your spirits, and brings a sense of contentment like no other beverage. A deep emotional connection is formed when you take a sip of hot chocolate.

At Hotel Chocolat, we believe that good quality hot chocolate is worth every indulgent sip. It’s important to us that our hot chocolate is not just a beverage; it’s an experience for you to savour. From feeling comforted by the warming feel of a steaming mug between your hands, to its satisfyingly velvety texture, there’s something wonderful about knowing you can enjoy a cup of your favourite hot chocolate — any time of the day. After all, there are no rules when it comes to hot chocolate.

Hot chocolate pouches or sachets?

In our hot chocolate range, we offer two delightful options for your hot chocolate indulgence: pouches and sachets. Each offers a unique drinking experience that caters to your preferences.

Hot chocolate pouches

Our hot chocolate pouches are filled with gossamer fine flakes of real, grated chocolate. It’s the closest to melting pure chocolate directly into hot milk. With this in mind, our pouches provide a drinking experience like no other, highlighted by an intensely rich and velvety texture.

Hot chocolate sachets

For ultimate convenience, our hot chocolate sachets contain the perfect amount of grated chocolate flakes for a satisfying single serving. They are a handy option for those moments when you’re craving a quick and delicious cup of hot chocolate, especially if you’re on the go.

Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed to experience hot chocolate the way it’s supposed to be.

The best drinking chocolate flavours

At the heart of any hot chocolate is its unique flavour profile. Will you choose the indulgent taste of a 100% Dark Hot Chocolate, the rich flavour of a 70% Dark Hot Chocolate, or the comfort of a classic 50% Milky Hot Chocolate — or will you go for something entirely different?

Each of our hot chocolate flavours has its own unique personality, taste and aroma. So, read on to find out more, and you may discover your new favourite flavour.

Salted caramel hot chocolate

Enjoy our creamy, decadent Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, lifted with a comforting tingle of salted caramel. With a silky and indulgent texture, you can curl up with a mug of salted caramel goodness as a midday pick-me-up, or an after-dinner dessert.

Coffee hot chocolate

For the caffeine lovers among us, there’s nothing better than the blend of coffee with soothing, rich chocolate. Enjoy a Caffe Latte Sachet when you’re in the mood for something energising. Our twist on the classic mocha is perfect for a gentle morning wake-up call
