  • What makes your hot chocolate so special? “It’s actually inspired by our Latin American friends called ‘Champurrado.’ There’s a little bit of a mystique about it. A little spice to it. It brings to mind old Latin American civilizations, folkloric types, mystiques of European cities... these flavors and images. It’s pure cocoa with steamed milk, a little bit of cinnamon and extra spices that give it a bit of heat; perfect for a cold night. It’s inspired thoughts of old movies like “Casablanca.” Also, there’s whipped cream with a little cinnamon on top.” (After asking this question, we heard the woman on the phone handoff the call while saying, “Here, you’re the master of hot chocolate.”)

Ghirardelli store in downtown Disney: salted caramel hot chocolate

That Stardust entry is hilarious and completely reflective of their horrible service. I will never go back there. On the other hand the person who wrote the Ghiradelli comment here is right on the money. Best sipping chocolate in town! It reminds me on Angelina's in Paris.
