Wednesday, June 2, 2010 Review and Giveaway

My hubby is a HUGE tea drinker, there has to be some kind of tea around the house at all times.  He always takes a big bottle of iced tea with him to work everyday and then at night to unwind, he has a different variety and several mugs of hot tea.  Once in a while, I will have a glass of iced tea or hot tea, but I am only an occasional tea drinker.  I tend to gravitate more toward hot chocolate and absolutely love to try all of the great flavors that are out on the market and online that I have been able to find.  I found a great online shop recently that not only specializes in hot chocolate and tea, but some deliciously different coffees, smoothies and more.  It's called and they have some great products to satisfy all of your beverage needs.  I was sent a couple of fun drinks to review:

*Big Train Chocolate Chai-  I have honestly never tried any form of Chai tea, so I was really interested to try this.  Anything with chocolate has to be good!  This tea is a creamy blend of honey, Dutch Chocolate, black tea and exotic spices.  For me it was definitely a cross between my beloved hot chocolate and tea, it has a very distinct flavor to say the least.  I was curious as to whether hubby would like it, he usually doesn't drink any type of tea that is vanilla or chocolate flavored, he is more of a regular tea drinker with an occasional fruit flavored tea thrown in.  So I made him a hot cup of the Chocolate Chai Tea one night and didn't show him the bag or tell him what it was.  He took his first sip and asked me what it was.  I told him and he said he really liked the flavor.  He said it had a real smooth taste and was really easy to drink.  Great compliments from our resident tea drinker and expert!  I really liked it as well, it is different than anything else that I have ever had.  You can drink this Chocolate Chai hot and even cold, I definitely can't wait to try it blended this summer.  The great thing about this drink is that there is no trans fat and it is low fat, so you can indulge once in a while without feeling all of that guilt that some other coffee and tea drinks might give you.  Big Train Chai also comes in other delicious flavors such as Spiced, Vanilla, Raspberry, Green Tea, Spiced Apple, Decaf Spiced and No Sugar Added Vanilla, so there is definitely something for everyone's particular tastes.  The Big Train line doesn't stop at Chai drinks, carries the whole line of Big Train products including Blended Ice Cremes, Fruit Tea Blast, Smoothies and so much more all at affordable and reasonable prices.  I can't wait to try more!
*Ghiradelli White Mocha Premium Hot Beverage- If you have ever had the pleasure of trying any product from Ghiradelli, then you know the quality and heavenly flavor of their chocolates.  This drink is no exception.  I like a cup of coffee once in a while, but am by no means a regular coffee drinker.  This has just the right amount and flavor of coffee mixed in with real vanilla to create a truly decadent drink that cocoa lovers will cherish.  I made this with milk and it made a rich and creamy not to mention yummy drink that tasted great at the end of a hard day of housework and kids!  I was looking on the canister and they have a delicious recipe for a White Mocha Bliss drink made with vanilla ice cream, milk, nutmeg and chopped hazlenuts that would be perfect with this mix.  I can also imagine taking a little bit of this mix with some vanilla yogurt and ice to make a delicious coffee flavored smoothie.  My oldest tried some of this too and really liked it herself. is one of six online shops from  They specialize in niche retail and wholesale direct eCommerce.  They got their start in 2002 with and are growing every year. carries a wide variety of brand names including:
