Hot Chocolate

Recommended Posts

Why don't they make hot chocolate powder the same density as coffee?

It takes me 4 times longer to make a cup of hot chocolate because to make 1 cup I need to put 4 heaped teaspoons of hot chocolate powder in my mug.

Why???

You are still a nut case :rofl:

Solved Start making the chocolate 3 seconds before the coffee. :whistle:

Technically it doesn't take any longer to make hot chocolate than coffee - if you do a critical path analysis, the time-consuming bit is boiling the kettle, not putting a couple of teaspoons of powder into the cup, so technically they should take exactly the same amount of time, start-to-finish... Lol

As for the reasoning, I think it's because Cadbury's (or whoever makes your hot chocolate powder) has realised something that Kenco (or whoever makes your coffee granules) hasn't... You're forced to use hot chocolate four times quicker than coffee, meaning you have to buy four times as much of it, meaning they've just quadrupled their sales! It's all a cunning marketting ploy to artifically inflate demand for their product! :D

Screen them for BSE? What, to make sure the drink's strong enough? By "BSE", you mean Bacardi, Sambuca & Everclear, right...? That'd put hairs on your chest... in fact, it'd put hairs on your hairs! :lol:

THanks for the help.

But Gav80 - if I gotta make ten mugs of hot chocolate, I'm struggling to get all those teaspoons done before the kettle boils!

Commando Crazy - a bigger spoon? That means taking two spoons to the "boiling station"! One too many for me!

I agree with Gav80 - Cadbury's (my prefeered supplier) do seem to want to sell much more of their product!

Damn those chocolate loving manufacturers!!!

Ten mugs of hot chocolate?? Does no-one drink vodka any more?? Ah well, all the more for me!!

And why would you need to bring an extra spoon to use a larger one? You say you need four heaped teaspoons... well, from memory, a dessertspoon is roughly two teaspoons, so you could just substitute the teaspoon for a dessertspoon and then use two scoops per cup instead of four...? You've instantly doubled your productivity!

*applause*

Of course, if you use a soup ladle it about triples it. And then you get about the right amount anyway.
