This was way too dark for my taste. Instead of being velvety, I thought it was powdery tasting. It smells like peppermint bark and in your cup, it looks like dark chocolate with little candy cane pieces floating throughout it.

I liked the decorative tin and this was 5 USD for seven servings, which is less expensive than 6 of the VIA packets. I also really wanted to try a Starbucks hot chocolate. The end result was pretty disappointing. I did not enjoy this hot chocolate and I would not buy or recommend it. I do recommend the K cups, especially the caramel hot chocolate. Those were delicious compared to this. I like that the cocoa is sourced ethically, but I did not like this one. It was a struggle to finish it.

I love peppermint, and I love hot chocolate...and I usually love the two together! But this stuff was so strong! It was dark, dark chocolate, and the peppermint was overwhelming. It was good, but it wasn't something I would ever crave, or go out of my way to get. My expectations were high, it's Starbucks after all, and this just wasn't what I was looking for.

In my opinion, mint and chocolate are one of the best combinations. Mixing one of my favorite drinks with mint- perfect! It is a bit expensive because of the Starbucks name, but it is worth it! Absolutely delicious and great for the holidays!

I loooooove this hot cocoa. You can decide how many spoonfuls of powder you want in your milk- better than pre packaged powders if you're a chocoholic like me. The peppermint gives it a nice kick with rich chocolate goodness.

These are so good I always had some stuff at work and home I use them with almond milk since I can't use regular milk and I think it tastes even better definitely worth the price

This stuff is amazing. it tastes exactly like it does if you get it in starbucks. i would definitely recommend this especially because it is getting closer to the holidays and winter. i prefer the cinnamon one but if you are not a cinnamon person i’m sure the other ones are great

I love peppermint and I love chocolate. During winter everyone loves hot drinks. Starbucks makes the best rich tasting pepper hot chocolate I have ever had. It's smooth and wonderful. I drink it every winter and I think it's something I'll always do.

Words can't come close on how much I love this hot cocoa mix. This literally tastes like Christmas. The peppermint flavor is absolutely delicious and blends perfectly with the chocolate!

Delicious but nothing compares to the in-store deliciousness when handmade by a barista. I like to make this at home when we need a little pick me up in the chilly weather.

Does this cocoa mix have an equal balance of hot chocolate and peppermint or is it just a "smidgen" of peppermint?

I've been wanting to try this out sooooooo bad. Is it worth the cost honestly? Is it very peppermint tasting? Is it overwhelming in the peppermint taste?

I have been looking for a peppermint hot chocolate that will not have a strong peppermint flavor. I love the Starbucks original hot chocolate but I am hesitant to try the peppermint. Any recommendation on if this is any good?

Does this really have the peppermint bark flavor? Does it Brew or have keurig options??
