Before I started this hot cocoa series I went shopping at several grocery stores looking for all the different chocolates and flavorings I could get my hands on. One item I found was Dagoba Organic Chocolate. Star Wars chocolate?! Yes please! (I’m not a nerd. I just have several in my life whom I love.) Just pretend there is an “h” on the end.
I bought this chocolate just because of the name, but I noticed it was organic and fair trade certified. I began researching the company and liked what I found. I am not affiliated with (or compensated by) this company in any way, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I rarely discuss brands here, but when I find a company I can stand behind and support I like to share. So go to their website to learn more about them.
In Star Wars, Dagobah is where Luke Skywalker goes to be trained by Yoda. I think Chai Spiced Hot Cocoa was probably a regular beverage in Jedi training. I mean, chocolate makes me stronger and chai spices definitely help improve my force skills.
Chocolate, spices, Yoda-approved. What’s not to love?
For those that celebrate Christmas today (like my dad’s side of the family). Merry Christmas! Have a wonderful day with your loved ones, and enjoy some Jedi Hot Cocoa together. 🙂
