Out of 136 hot chocolate reviewed 86 hot chocolates had no extras. This is the majority or 63% of hot chocolates.

37 hot chocolates came with at least one marshmallow. These marshmallows did not come dunked or with any other extras.
• 19 came with a single marshmallow,
• 13 came with a pink and a white marshmallow,
• Four came with two white marshmallows (Hilton Hotel, Kappy's Café, Sky High Café and Muffin Break) and
• The Café Delicieuse hot chocolate came with a white and an orange marshmallow

Square Café (Jaffa)
