Little River Coffee Roasting

Was one of the most popular options with the people of Spartanburg! And why not? There are several locations in the Little River Roasting company to choose from and they serve up a creamy cup of hot cocoa!

Peppermint bark hot chocolate (mix of dark and white chocolate) is so rich and perfect, and the only hot chocolate I drink year round. Made with dairy or preferred milk alternative- no watery cocoa here.

With a location on every corner and a menu you probably know by heart, Starbucks is a good option when you are away from home. The coffee chains white hot chocolate seems to be very popular!

Salted caramel white hot chocolate or white chocolate peppermint hot chocolate are my two favorites!


Starbucks white hot chocolate is wonderful!



People of the Upstate love some QT. They have a huge selection of drink options and that includes gourmet hot chocolate from the snack bar.

Folks, as of publication time I have no idea what “liquid truffle sipping chocolate” is, but I fully intend on finding out ASAP. Whatever it is, it sounds glorius and its on the menu here.

NEW TREND: Hot Chocolate Bombs

This year’s “Why didn’t we think of that” item is the Hot Chocolate bomb that I have seen asked about a dozen times a day on my social media feed. The tangerine sized hollow chocolate ball is filled with marshmallows, and after placing it in your favorite mug, you pour hot milk over it. The result is an eruption of melted chocolate and marshmallows in drinkable form. This has been one of the few things 2020 has given us that we don’t want to send back!
