This time the mousse special drink is different from the previous refreshing soda drinks with stimulus tasting, but it can bring you a triple tasting enjoyment! One special drink to satisfy everyone's desire for March, a month without public holidays!
The first taste begins to taste the mousse on top, I guess everyone will feel the taste of the foaming layer. When you try the second sip, let's gulp down the mousse drink, and you can enjoy the crunchy chocolate crumbs with fine foam! The taste of cocoa spreads out in different positions in the mouth, and each sip brings different kinds of feeling. Then you can drink it with a straw so that you can enjoy the smooth cocoa milk at the bottom. Suddenly the last sip comes, let’s enjoy the triple layers of taste experience to conclude this mousse cocoa journey!
Cocoa = Chocolate Powder?
Everyone may mistakenly think that Cocoa is the same as chocolate since both the colour and taste are similar. But in actual cocoa it tastes a bit bitter than chocolate. Cocoa, it’s a Chinese name translated directly from English pronunciation, with a unique aroma and this is the raw material for producing chocolate. In the past, chocolate powder was more expensive, to let people taste and enjoy the aroma of chocolate, cocoa has become the best to replace.
Cocoa powder does not contain powdered sugar, and it is relatively bitter but has higher nutrition content than chocolate powder. Cocoa began to be popular in HK style restaurants in the 1950s but since people started to have more choices on the beverage selection, cocoa became less appealing for people and it was then being eliminated.
This time C.O.T.D has chosen Cocoa to be the featured ingredient of the mousse special drink, as we hope to let more people in Hong Kong get into the taste of Cocoa and awaken more people’s memories. From Shum Shui Po, this cultural location in Hong Kong, you can explore more!
【Uji Matcha Mousse】
Apart from Cocoa Mousse, we also prepared another option for you! Our Uji Matcha Mousse used matcha from Yamamasa Koyamaen, Uji, Kyoto. The matcha has a strong umami taste and you can absorb 100% nutrition of tea leaves.
