Pacha Mama

With warm­ing spices, the Mex­i­can-style Cin­na­mon and Chilli Hot Choco­late ($5) is a de­li­cious way to stay warm as you browse the stalls of the Sala­manca and Farm Gate mar­kets on a cold week­end morn­ing.

Sala­manca Mar­ket on Satur­days and Farm Gate Mar­ket on Sun­day

Villino

En­tirely or­ganic, made from 100 per cent African co­coa beans and per­fectly bal­anced out with sweet­ness from added sugar, this is heav­enly hot choco­late. The milk is tex­tured to make the drink creamy, but not too frothy nor wa­tery. The pop­u­lar drink is topped off with a musthave marsh­mal­low for $4.60 for a large cup. You can also buy 1kg of the pow­der for $32. 30 Cri­te­rion St, Ho­bart

Yel­low Bernard

Es­pe­cially pop­u­lar through­out the colder months, Yel­low Bernard’s hot choco­late is de­li­cious and high qual­ity, made from a premium, 100 per cent co­coa drink­ing choco­late. The choco­late they use is gluten free and ve­gan and the drink comes with a full range of milks to choose from, both mak­ing it suit­able for a range of di­etary re­quire­ments. 1/109 Collins St, Ho­bart

Coal River Farm

With on­site choco­latiers work­ing away to pro­duce some of Tas­ma­nia’s finest choco­lates, it’s no sur­prise Coal River Farm’s hot choco­lates are some of the best. Choose from the hot choco­late menu, in­clud­ing tra­di­tional dark, milk, light, cin­na­mon and dark and chilli op­tions ($7 each). The rich drinks are made from Coal River’s own blended, high-qual­ity cou­ver­ture choco­late. 634 Rich­mond Rd, Cam­bridge

Last week

We had an over­whelm­ing re­sponse from read­ers this week all let­ting us know that last week’s What Is It? item was an eye-wash cup.

The user fills the cup with liq­uid, presses it against their eye and tips their head back to wash out any grit, dirt or for­eign par­ti­cles. Such an item was a god­send for Anita Clark­son, who reguarly used one as a a child grow­ing up in a busy, dusty city in In­dia.

Aside from Anita, oth­ers in with the fastest an­swer in­cluded Mau­reen Hard­cas­tle, Jocy An­der­son, Erica Green, El­iz­a­beth Banks, Diane Brown, Robyn Haney, Sue Sal­ter, Pam Stew­art, Marie Mag­ill and Betty Jones.
