On the Grind
When I arrived at the window there was no line, and the employee greeted me in a respectful way. I proceed to order a small 12 oz. hot chocolate for $2.00. The barista put my drink together in no time. As soon I received my hot cocoa it was too hot to drink. I immediately noticed that it had no chocolate flavor and just tasted like buttermilk. I was very disappointed. I rate this drink a 1/5.
When walking into Emily’s I automatically felt like I was welcome. The employees were nice. I ordered a small 12 oz. hot chocolate for $2.17. By the time I was done ordering my hot cocoa was ready. I fell in love with the first sip; the temperature was perfect.. I could instantly taste the creamy chocolate as it melted in my mouth. I couldn't compare it to any other hot chocolate because of how good it was. I rate it a 5/5.
Pulling into the drive thru with no wait, I ordered a small 12 oz. hot chocolate for $3.19. The customer service was great but I wish I could say the same about the hot cocoa. Just like the Emily’s Place drink, the temperature just right. But as soon as I took a sip all I tasted was powder--like the Hersheys Chocolate powder that you use for baking. It instantly coded my throat with a powdery feeling. I could not finish the drink; as I arrived at home I poured the rest out and at the bottom of the cup there was a layer of chocolate at the bottom. I rate this hot cocoa a 2/5.
