This is the first article in Amanda Maguire’s Vegan Guide to Boston series, which profiles Boston’s best vegan products and businesses.
Winter is definitely here. The icy temperatures and the snow filled sidewalks are here, and the residents of Boston are bundling up, flinging on scarves, lacing up boots and securing hats to ensure their outsides are warm and snug against the brutal temps. Sometimes though, just layering on those woolen pieces doesn’t quite do the trick and there is only one thing that will help shake that chill off: hot cocoa. There is just something about a big steaming mug of liquid chocolate that truly warms the body from the inside out. Of course, if you’re going to indulge in the delicious drink, you want the good stuff. You don’t want some powder from a pouch hastily stirred into hot water you can make that at home! You want something rich and decadent, something that lets you know that you’re getting something special.
