They must of seen me coming a mile away. When I saw the combination of bacon and cocoa it was an easy sale. 'McSteven's Coco Combos' has a cocoa mix that claims to be; "Oddly Delicious Flavor Combination". Hot chocolate was a childhood favorite beverage. Pull out some marshmallow and let's give it a try.

I am not sure I wanted to read the ingredients. The closest thing to bacon listed was a mention of 'Natural Flavor'. The instructions give you options of adding water, milk or coffee.  Our first taste was with some very hot water. The cocoa powder has a deep chocolate aroma. There is a second odor that is a little unidentifiable that may or may not be bacon. Hot water was added. The cup of cocoa was a rich deep chocolaty delight. I really did not taste bacon. There was a slight smell that if I closed my eyes and thought of bacon, could of, possibly, maybe smelled like bacon. I added some hot coffee to some cocoa powder and had a really nice mocha minus bacon flavor. This is a great cocoa for hot chocolate but leave the bacon for the skillet.

Sounds like a great idea - too bad it didn't translate into reality. Still, good hot chocolate is not to be sneezed at.
