When you think of Valentine's Day, you probably think of romantic dates, couples, and roses. But I think of chocolate. Maybe it's because I'm single, or because as an editor at a food website, I'm constantly surrounded by it. Luckily, Starbucks also thinks of chocolate and has brought back their Molten Chocolate flavor for the occasion.

Where and When You Can Try It

The Molten Chocolate flavor hit the US the last two Valentine's Days, but this year, it's only available in Starbucks' UK stores. The flavor is amazingly chocolatey, and you can order it as a hot chocolate, a latte, or a Frappuccino (complete with espresso-infused whipped cream on top!).

However, if you don't live across the pond, there is another way to get your hands on the flavor flave: Get in your car and drive to your local grocery store. A chilled Molten Chocolate Latte drink launched last month in the US and is available at your local grocery store in the refrigerated section. It might not be steaming hot in a white and green paper cup, but it does have a lid that makes it easier for taking on the go. 

What It Tastes Like

I wouldn't get the latte thinking that it's coffee with a hint of chocolate. No, the Molten Chocolate Latte tastes like straight up chocolate, and I love it. My coworker took a sip and said, "It tastes like Mocha Yoo-Hoo." I would agree, and also add that if you're not familiar with the Yoo-Hoo Chocolate Drink, it tastes like hot chocolate or Nesquik with an ever so slight mocha aftertaste—like a molten lava chocolate cake was blended into an iced coffee. 

The Molten Chocolate Latte is delicious and if you love chocolate, go try it. But don't feel like you need to risk a speeding ticket on your way to the store. This drink will be available in US grocery stores all year long.
