A better question might be where else serves hot chocolate besides Dunkin or Starbucks?

Voiceofreason, what do you mean people up here? Sounds like you're just generalizing about people up here. I'm a fan of the Hot Chocolate from Aroma Cafe.

This list makes me sad. There are no locally owned places in NR/R that have hot chocolate?!

Heav"nly Donuts, the hot chocolate is rich, try the dark hot chocolate for a real chocolate fix.

you all realize this question is just asking "who has the nicest artificially flavored packet of brown powder", right? that's all this is. unless you go to LA Burdick and get their liquified chocolate in a mug.

LA Burdick is the best!

Honestly, Dunkin Donuts? Starbucks? Come on. It's like, just shop at the big box stores for your hot cacao, right? LA Burdick used to be cool but they've lost their edge and sold out. There's a few spots I could tell you about but you've probably never heard of them. Too obscure. But really, I mean, it's all in the melting, you know? Like, where's the SOUL? You just need a good barista who can melt the cacao just right and make sure nothing is lost in the transformation. I mean, come on! We can all just go to "Dunkins" and listen to our MP3s, but honestly... give me good hot cacao and vinyl records and it's the only warmth I need all winter, you know?
