There's something very satisfying about sipping hot chocolate on a cold, rainy morning.

Today, the cocoa in question was a Chocolate and Raspberry, Artificially Flavored, Hot Chocolate Mix from Land O'Lakes (Arden Hills, MN).

The raspberry artificial flavor wasn't bad as I thought it might be, but I kept wondering what this cocoa would have tasted like with a creamy pat of butter (what Land O'Lakes is probably most well known for).

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Raspberry Theme Week.

This Raspberry Orange Creme Filled Dark Chocolate bar was from Endangered Species Chocolate (Indianapolis, IN).

Each square of this 72% cocoa dark bar was filled with a thin pillow of white, dairy-free creme that was infused with subtle raspberry and citrus flavor.

As with the company's other bars, the label (adorned with a photo of a red panda) called out a promise to donate 10% of net profits to non-profit partners that protect wildlife.
