I use the Ibarra Mexican chocolate tablets ( with ground almonds and cinnamon) which I like better than Abuelas. I like it every now and again.

Best flavor for cocoa is the Hershey cocoa powder made with whole milk.

For quick and easy, swiss miss instant hot cocoa. It's not as good as made from scratch, but it is hot and tasty and really quick. I use it when we are camping and we add milk, not just hot water.

In terms of the UK, Costa and Caffè Nero make the best large high street chain hot chocolate, however there are lots of good independents that are better than any chain.
