Come hither, my little Chantico

Reuters - Wed Jan 5, 7:15PM ET
"'Chantico', a new gourmet drinking chocolate beverage, will be offered at Starbucks shops in the United States and Canada beginning January 8, 2005. Described as 'drinking a melted truffle', the chocolate has an intense, full-bodied flavor and a rich, silky texture that builds on the tradition of European drinking chocolate. "

I want it, and I want it now.


  • While drinking a truffle sounds wonderful to me, this drink has got to be loaded with the calories. And I prefer my calories in the form of cheese.

  • Wow! That sounds amazing! (and really, what are calories for if not to be spent on chocolate? ) Thanks for the head's up... I'll definitely have to cruise by a Starbucks tomorrow... mmm.... -emily

  • I agree with Emily - I would much rather drink my calories in chocolate than cheese any day. My sweet tooth is abominable.

  • Yummy! I had drinks like this every morning when I was in Spain and was so sad when we had to leave. Now it appears I can revisit Spain with a quick trip to Starbucks. Thanks for letting us know!

  • I can't wait for Christina's review of this. My husband tried it last week and said it was awfully thick & could have used a bit less sugar. But we don't know the real deal from Spain. Let us know what you think of it!
