Hot chocolate mixes are usually more sugar than chocolate. Lots more sugar. Dagoba is different. You make it just like any other hot chocolate mix but you add your own sweetener, should you need it. Instead of a huge infusion of high fructose corn syrup or other nasties, you are free to add just a touch of sugar or alternative sweeteners such as stevia or agave nectar. Or enjoy the chocolate flavor on its own. Dagoba is gluten-free, non-alkalized, and Fair Trade. It comes in eight-ounce canisters.
