Mushroom Coffee and Hot Cacao

"Mushroom Coffee." Those two words were just weird enough to get me to click on them in my facebook feed. Yep. Not only did I click, but I ordered a box...along with a box of the mushroom hot cacao drink. Check out Four Sigma Foods for more information.

Tasting Thoughts: While I love the idea behind this - half the caffeine without sacrificing the coffee flavor and less acidity than regular coffee - I really didn't love the product. Maybe I'm just not an instant coffee kinda gal. I did, for kicks, add some mushroom powder to my regular coffee as I brewed it. I couldn't really discern any difference in flavor or any difference in the coffee's affect. So, this is a non-starter for me.

Tasting Thoughts: I enjoyed that this was a dark and spicy shot of thick hot chocolate; it's more like an espresso-sized drink versus a mug-sized drink. But, like the coffee, I didn't really taste anything different about this than any other thick, spicy hot chocolate that I would make.

So, my conclusion on this culinary adventure - Neat idea. Not worth the money.
