Whenever I would have hot chocolate at work in my big mug, it always tasted bad. Was it the black mug sucking out the heat? Not really. Was it the Swiss Miss brand? Not really. Was it because I was filling the big mug up to the top with water. YOU BETCHA.
It may seem obvious, but too much water for hot chocolate WATERS IT DOWN. Yeah. Duh. I always thought this mug was a pretty normal size. Sure it’s a little bigger, but it’s not THAT big. This time around I put in half the amount of water. Wow! It tastes SO much better.
Obvious? Yes. But tasty? OOH YEAH!
