The house chocolate tastes so good, much better than the stuff you’ve drank as a kid, that’s for sure! I love adding espresso to the house chocolate for an even greater flavor.
A nice artical on 5 Sparrows featured in Montana Health Journal.
I never made anything like that before and I even invented my own little recipe using this amazingly tasty hot chocolate mix. I like to call it...My Black and White Hot Chocolate.

’Tis the season for warm mugs of hot cocoa topped off with fresh whipped cream and crushed candy cane. Whether your chocolate lover prefers milk chocolate or white chocolate, the 5 Sparrow's house chocolate will put a smile on her face.
I’m a huge coffee drinker. I love it. I also love to indulge in “frou-frou coffee,” chai teas and, in the winter, a good hot chocolate really hits the spot.
After I drank the sugar-free House Hot Chocolate, I thought I had misread the label. It was rich and chocolatey with a sweetness as if it had sugar. More importantly, there was no weird aftertaste. Nor was there with the white chocolate and spiced chai. I’ve tried hundreds of drinks with sugar substitutes and, up until now, I thought it was better to use sugar than ruin something with a substitute.
Now you can enjoy Hot Chocolate, Frapper, and Chai naturally sweetened with stevia. 5 Sparrows offers handcrafted beverages made with superior ingredients and sweetened with Stevia. Watch your waistline and sugar intake this Thanksgiving and Christmas season with 5 Sparrows – while not sacrificing the taste of your favorite cafe drinks.
Although it has no grams of sugar in it (it’s sweetened with stevia and xylitol), it tasted like a fantastic chocolate dessert. I typically notice an aftertaste with non-sugar sweeteners of any kind (even the natural ones), but this one had little to no aftertaste at all. With 70 calories a serving (not including the milk), it’s a fabulously rich hot chocolate to sip on. Oh, and it’s ah-mazing in coffee.

Crazy for creamy chocolate, chai and blended coffee drinks but watching your waistline and sugar intake this summer?
These deliciously rich, creamy, carefully handcrafted mixes come in Sugar Free White Chocolate, Sugar Free Chocolate, Sugar Free Monumental Spiced Chai and Sugar Free Vanilla Frappe. They contain absolutely zero sugar, but NO artificial sweeteners. Stevia has been used in Europe for over a century and it’s a healthy, natural, low calorie alternative to sugar and synthetic sweeteners.
My favorite was the Sugar-Free Snow Ghost Frappe! One serving with the coffee and milk was under 150 calories. My normal Caramel Iced Coffee was up in the 800 calories per one I drank. BIG difference in calories there, so not only do I still get my sweet yummy frozen coffee fix, I get it at a lot less calories.
Chai is a favorite indulgence of mine, and I don't often drink it because the low-sugar varieties don't taste good and I don't think the Starbucks Tazo is worth the calories. The 5 Sparrows chai, made with soy, was spicy and sweet but not overly so. And rich. Definitely rich.
The taste was amazing! My cup of cocoa, which I made with hot milk was oh so rich and creamy. The taste of chocolate lingered on my tongue, and the Stevia added just the right amount of sweetness one would expect with a cup of hot chocolate.
5 Sparrows Coffee began when former 8 year owners of a barista decided to bring their love for great coffee into people's homes. Their products are made out of superior ingredients that never sacrifice taste.
Their sugar free mixes are sweetened with stevia instead of those chemical sweeteners that I avoid. Stevia has a better flavor without an aftertaste and I am happy to do without the chemicals.
When the summer heat rises and a cup of hot cocoa isn’t appealing, use the cocoa mix to make a beat-the-heat ice cream float. This triple chocolate ice cream float features Montana-based 5 Sparrows Coffee House Chocolate.
