Have you figured out I’m not the world’s biggest coffee fan? I
do not own just recently purchased a coffee maker and Starbucks means nothing to me. Blasphemy, I know. Unlike the better half of Food in the Fox who pipes the stuff directly into her veins, I never quite acquired the taste for coffee, latte, espressos, and so forth. However, coffee shops do cater to unfortunate souls like me. Take Seth’s Coffee & Bake Shop in Little Chute, for example. My go-to drink of choice at Seth’s is the steamer, which is essentially just steamed milk with a bit of flavored syrup added to it. Seth’s has about eight or ten flavors to choose from, including a few sugar free ones, but try the vanilla (my favorite), the hazelnut, or the caramel. It’s a frothy treat that seriously makes me ponder how something so simple can taste so good..
Hot Chocolate vs. Hot Chocolate
But, back to today’s hot chocolate. As you may recall, just couple days ago I had the Mexican Hot Chocolate down at Copper Rock Coffee in downtown Appleton. It was decent enough, but I must say I prefer Seth’s hot chocolate over the Copper Rock. Sadly, as was the case at Copper Rock, there were no marshmallows crowning this high-calorie concoction. Instead, we have the typical chocolate syrup and whipped cream combo nestled in one of Seth’s signature handmade mugs. Seth’s was also a little more generous with the whipped cream than Copper Rock, which was another plus.
I believe it is now one of my missions in life to find the best hot chocolate the Fox Valley has to offer. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment and I’ll be sure to check it out and report my findings here on Food in the Fox.
