Merkel chose the iced chocolate for $3.50. This came in a tall glass but looked more like a milkshake than an iced chocolate. It was an even light brown texture and simply had a light brown froth on top. The taste was light and malty. Merkel prefers to see a scoop of ice cream and some clever work with the chocolate sauce in his iced chocolate. As it was only the second iced chocolate review on this blog it was little disappointing.
Merkel returned to the Edinburgh when the weather was a bit cooler with some friends for lunch. There he ordered the standard hot chocolate. It came with white and pink marshmallows and a chocolate wafer stick which was a surprising cache of extras. The hot chocolate was finished with a creamy froth and a sprinkle of chocolate and came in a glass with a handle. The taste was light and chocolaty and the cost was $4.00.
