The star of our Pop of the Month, Horchata Mexican Hot Chocolate, is our ever popular Horchata (pronounced or-CHAH-tah) Pop. This creamy pop is a big favorite among many of our customers.
With its origins in Spain, there are many different varieties of Horchata. Our pop is inspired by one of one of the most popular Latin American versions. Typically, this refreshing drink is made with rice and is flavored with cinnamon and sweetened with sugar or condensed milk. Rice, and sometimes nuts or seeds, is ground and mixed with water to make a milky looking drink, similar to rice milk. It is served over ice as a refreshing beverage. Our Horchata pop features a creamy blend of milk, cream, and rice, sweetened with organic cane sugar and perfectly balanced with cinnamon and vanilla.
The Pop of the Month, Horchata Mexican Hot Chocolate, incorporates another one of our favorite Latin American drinks, Mexican Hot Chocolate. Mexican Hot Chocolate is typically made with roasted and ground cacao nibs, sugar, and cinnamon. Other spices like nutmeg, allspice, and chili are sometimes added.
