I love good coffee. I love good chocolate. I’ve now found the perfect pick-me-up that combines the two at White Rhino Coffee in Cedar Hill. Their Facebook page lists such tempting holiday offerings as Honey/Cinnamon Latte and Peppermint Mocha. But they’ve come up with what I believe must be the penultimate holiday delight, a magnificent combination of chocolate and coffee: the Nutella latte. That’s right, the hazelnutty chocolaty fabulosity that is Nutella has been combined with a latte. And it is So. Very. GOOD.
Sadly, I didn’t take a picture of my latte, as I was in my car on my way to work. But I’m surely hoping White Rhino will make this a year-round offering and not just save it for Christmastime. Served with a topping of whipped cream and chopped hazelnuts, this drink was a delightful blend of flavors. The chocolate and hazelnut predominated, but it was definitely a coffee drink. I think even non-coffee drinkers might enjoy this, though, it’s that chocolaty and smooth.
White Rhino also features a selection of pastries that are sure to delight – muffins, cake, cookies – and a wide variety of coffee drinks. The Toasted Coconut is very good, made with half and half so it’s extra creamy, and I also like the Hug in a Cup. But if you’re shopping at Uptown Village this holiday season and want a break, head on over to old Cedar Hill and stop in at White Rhino for a Nutella latte. Just consider it a Christmas gift to yourself!
