Hans Sloane Drinking Chocolate
The hot chocolate we know of today was concocted in 1687 by the illustrious Sir Hans Sloane. When he was in Jamaica, he was introduced to the local cocoa drink, and found it ‘nauseous’. He added milk and sugar and made it more palatable. His recipe was soon served in the royal court and a few places in London. And William III would have a cup of hot chocolate every morning.
In recent years, Hans Sloane has been revived as a brand of top quality drinking chocolate. It comes in the format of unique, small chocolate beads that are loaded with a rich flavor, and melt into a satisfying cup of full bodied, voluptuous hot chocolate. This ultimate drinking chocolate has swiftly become the No. 1 premium brand in its category at Waitrose. Hans Sloane is also available at Harrods, British Museum, Hampton Court Palace, and many fine delis and coffee shops in the UK.
