Ugh. I just got a hot chocolate at the Starbucks in the Confederation Centre. I'd only ever gotten tea there before, but I was feeling wacky, so I went for ho cho.
It comes with stuff on it. Did you know this? There was stuff on my hot chocolate. There was a mound of white, and then there were lines of brown. This turned out to be whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
I don't really like whipped cream, but I thought I'd try it, and it was ok, but it was cold, and, of course, the hot chocolate wasn't. The chocolate syrup was superfluous and too sweet. It's just there for aesthetics, right? Pass.
I poured half of it out. The hot chocolate was fine at first, but it got way too sweet, and then I could see little pools of oil floating on the top, presumably from the whipped cream (but it wouldn't shock me if a pat of butter was part of the Starbucks hot chocolate recipe).
