I have to admit...
I am not really on the "George Clooney is so amazingly hot" train.
However, I am on the "George Clooney is a truly amazing actor" train.
He knocked it out of the park with "Up In The Air," and he has done it again with this film.
I definitely think it will be up for many Oscars.
The hubs and I also agree that Shailene Woodley, who plays Clooney's eldest daughter in the film, did an
I think she is on that t.v. show "The Secret Life of an American Teenager."
I have never watched that show, but I think the role in this film will open up many new doors for her!
GO SEE IT!
I hope you like it as much as the hubs and I did.
Okay, now on to some very important business....
I am on the hunt for the best cup of hot chocolate in Memphis (or the surrounding area)!
Look I loooveee a good cup of coffee.
However, around the holidays, I really crave some good ol' hot chocolate.
So, I've decided to set out on this little adventure...and then crown a winner!
Of course, these are just MY opinions. You may have YOUR OWN favorite.
And of course, we all have different pallets. I am just here to give my thoughts! :)
The first suggestion given to me was that of Panera Bread.
Okay, I've made up a few categories in order to give ya some perspective.
Whip Cream? - Yes they offered. However, for the purposes of this little adventure, I have decided not to add whip cream to any of mine so I can just get the hot chocolate flavor. (However, I love to add whip cream to my hot chocolate.... ;) ....please don't tell my jeans.)
Chocolate-ness- On a scale of 1-5 (5 being full on super duper chocolate flavor) I'd give it a 3. I think I am looking for just a little more chocolaty taste.
Richness- On a scale of 1-5 (5 being super duper rich), I'd give it a 3. Like the chocolate flavor, I'm looking for a little more richness.
Size- I'm not sure what size I got. I just asked for a hot chocolate. And the size in the pic is what they gave me!
Calories - 110 for an 8oz. (Yes, I am including calories in this adventure because I am psycho.) I like Panera's nutritional calorie calculator on their website. You can customize any of your meals to see a true representation of what you are eating or drinking!
Price- With tax, $2.39. Not too shabby! Actually, that's pretty affordable! :)
Cup cuteness- Okay, this really has no bearing on my ultimate decision. However, I think that packaging is important when selling a product! I think this cup is super cute. It has little birds on it and looks festive. Also, the sleeve says "Share Warmth." That's a pretty cute saying!
All in all, I liked Panera's hot chocolate!
If you are in the mood for some chocolate-ly goodness, and you are near a Panera...go grab ya some!
I got mine from the following location:
Panera Bread - Laurelwood
4530 Poplar Avenue, Suite 101
Memphis, TN 38117
Much love, :)
