Millions of Starbucks junkies can’t be wrong…can they?
Whether you brew it in your kitchen or buy it from a barista, each day in America, we drink 400 MILLION cups of coffee!

But did you know hot cocoa may be a much healthier choice for your morning pick-me-up than a cup of joe?
When it comes to hot chocolate vs. coffee, hot chocolate is the winner according to science!

If you have never been to Western Washington State, we have an abundance of beautiful green trees, waterways that are fun to explore by ferry, sailboat, motor boat, canoe and kayak and don’t forget the mountains that when they appear out of the clouds are simply gorgeous.
Last weekend we visited Vancouver BC for the last of their 4 week chocolate festival. It was a dark and rainy weekend which made for great weather to drink chocolate! This is the third year we’ve enjoyed this event and it’s clearly our favorite.
