Customers have asked us to provide these decadent drinks beyond the holiday season and weÃ¢ve listened to their requests.Ã¢

Ã¢Å“Our drinking chocolate is like drinking a rich, creamy chocolate bar,Ã¢ said Christine Lantinen, president of Maud Borup.
The drinking chocolates are available in smooth peppermint, decadent semi-sweet, and velvety white chocolate. Lantinen continues, Ã¢Å“Our relationship with Walmart allows everyone to enjoy our drinking chocolates and cider mix, delivering sweet indulgence at a reasonable price.Ã¢ Maud Borup drinking chocolate and spiced caramel apple cider is available at Walmart now in eight-ounce packages for $3.98, making gourmet beverages an affordable everyday treat.
