Fraus Hot Chocolate.. essentially a solid not a liquid. It could probably even be served on a plate, thats how remarkably thick it is.

I'm not really much of a coffee drinker, so hot chocolate (particularly during the dreaded colder months) is my warmed beverage of choice to consume outside of the home. At home I'm quite lazy, soaking a teabag in hot water seems to require herculean efforts on my behalf, thats why I surround myself with helpful tea making friends.

Anyway! I had heard much gushings regarding Fraus' amazing hot chocolate drinks, their supreme thickness and creaminess, variety of flavours, and vegan-ness!

My first visit involved a sumptuous experience with a coconut flavoured hot chocolate. Intense cocochoc flavours, thickly studded with shredded toasted coconut bits, this was definitely more of a dessert than a simple drink! I did consume the whole thing with a spoon, with is really the only way to do it. Trying to drink that stuff would most certainly result in a cardiac shock of some variety and/or hot chocolate milk moustache becoming crusted to your face and resulting in comedic embarassment and bugs attacking face.

Other flavours in my extensive, yet still meagre, experience (considering the broad flavour list) include strawberry (tastes like Roses "Thankyou very much" strawberry heart shaped chocolate of days yore. You know the ones your parents used to get, that would inevitably be regifted unless you so happened to tear into them whilst they were out) and vanilla (which was incredible), but mainly I have stuck with the coconut.

The hot chocolate comes in two different sizes. Cup - for the weaker more lame people among us, and mug - the obvious choice for champions. Mug size with soy milk sets you back about $4.40, but well worth the money spent. If trying an unexplored flavour, be sure to ask whether its vegan friendly, as some flavours may contain milk solids.

Fraus also serves sweet and savoury crepes, of which I have no experience. Just putting it out there. Much, much respect to you if you can handle both hot chocolate and a crepe. Simultaneously.

I'm not really a fan of coconut in my hot chocolate person. Although your post makes me want to try out some and give it a shot.
