93/100: Mexican Hot Chocolate  
Mexican hot chocolate is chocolate-y and sweet. There's a spice to it, like chai and cinnamon.

The one I have most access to is Abuelita, meaning little grandmother. :)

When I make the hot chocolate from the wedges, it leaves some granules in the bottom of the mug. I have very early memories of finishing off a mug of hot chocolate and seeing the granules there and trying them (but for some reason they're not too palatable so I always dump them down the drain).

There's also Ibarra brand. I've tried it and it's around the same as Abuelita.

One time when I worked at an ice cream place, I brought abuelita to work and blended it in a milkshake with a bit of ice and coffee. It was absolutely divine -- the most delicious iced coffee chocolate spice beverage amazingness I have ever tasted. <3

If you get a chance, try some mexican hot chocolate! It's delicioso! :9

I've never seen anything like that here, but when I was a teen, I used to make my own. I'd heat milk on the stove and add powdered chocolate and cinnamon. Spray some whipped cream on the top and it was so nom!

That sounds good! I usually use marshmallows, but whipped cream would be amazing~ Also delicious is a small scoop of ice cream. :3
