#42 "DON'T BUG ME" 38% cacao coconut milk hot chocolate garnished with free-range dried crickets. Served w a 72% mini dark chocolate square - 1

J's comment > yup, those were actual real dried crickets, and yup, yours truly popped one, and third yup, J totally freaked :D But I ate it! Anyhoos, technically, the cricket didn't taste like anything, crunchy and crisp for sure, nothing oozing out of this bugger (*shudder*); hot chocolate was milkier than I prefer, most definitely not the molten drinking chocolate I prefer, ie last year's; didn't get any of the coconut flavor either; chocolate could be hotter too; Available until Feb 14 as part of the 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival

#41 "FLU SHOT" Baileys infused warm white chocolate ganache served in a large syringe. Comes with an individually wrapped throat lozenge - 1

J's comment > saccharine... this was just condensed milk, straight up; not hot at all either; nothing chocolatey about this; Available until Feb 14 as part of the 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival

White chocolate waffle - 1

J's comment > dense, hard and tough; didn't get the chocolate flavor at all either; pass
