Chocolate Taste Doubled In New Mix

Rick Bonino Food Editor
 

With winter drawing to a close, we might as well slurp up all the hot chocolate we can before pina colada season arrives.

Carnation makes it easier to achieve maximum chocolate consumption with its new Double Chocolate Meltdown mix, which produces a deep, rich, not overly sweet cup of cocoa.

And when those coladas come around, make mine a double, too.
