Mandy - thank you so much for your comment. Bluebird and I both love Paris too. Angelina's was a treat I would recommend to everyone going to Paris. The hot chocolate is made the way its meant to be drunk. Let us know when you get to travel to Paris again - we would love to follow along with your travels if you post on social media. xx FaerieWings
