Villa Real Mexican Hot Chocolate
Villa Real chocolate from Oaxaca is made with simple ingredients; just cocoa butter, sugar, almond, and other nuts and spices. The result? The most delicious cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate you've ever tasted. Cocao was a gift that the god Quetzalcoatl made for men. The rulers and elite warriors of ancient Mesoamerica consumed cocoa in a variety of ways, using it as food, drink, medicine, and even as the official currency. The scientific name of the cacao tree is Theobroma cacao, whose Latin meaning is "food of the gods." We partner with family-owned business Villa Real to source our Mexican Hot Chocolate. They treat cocoa as a sacred ingredient inherited from their ancestors. They turn it into a mixture of flavors and ingredients that will make your palate fill with emotions and memories. It’s the taste of nostalgia. Mexican hot chocolate is great for the colder seasons. You’ll want to share this with friends and family, so grab our hot chocolate gift set, which includes a gorgeous and functional hot chocolate jug, Villa Real chocolate, and a traditional molinillo whisk.
