Our northern roots are showing

It feels like hot cocoa weather, esp in the mornings... But finding 'real' hot cocoa is not the same down here... To us anyhow...

You see Nestle is what we are used to, or some version of it..  Powder you add hot water to.  All we see here is variations of the Nesquik, you use powder and hot milk.  Concidering milk cost almost $5 a gallon at most places, thats not a good option.  And we see the packets EVERYWHERE of the Butternut mix, but only in packets.   We like the big cans so we can measure into diff size cups. 

So I finally asked....  And my northern roots showed :-)

I seen the Nestle on CLEARance for $2.50 each.  We finally found some and its not going to be available???  Gah!!!!!!   And the store employee got a chuckle when I asked her what they concider 'real hot cocoa down here'. Hehe... She said the Butternut sells off the shelves and they have them everywhere in the stores.  She tried very hard not to roll her eyes :-) So we bought a few packets to try along with 4 canisters of the 'real stuff' you know, for the transition from northern to southern???

According to the kids, the packets taste the same, but the Nesquik is not good lol!!!!
