Best Friends Cocoa

Make some friends
By MARLISSA BRIGGETT  |  November 21, 2006

Remember your resolution to drink more green tea for its cancer-fighting benefits? Here’s another (sweeter) way to get your antioxidants: hot cocoa. According to Cornell University food scientists, cocoa has three times more antioxidants than green tea. And Linda Guttman of Best Friends Cocoa is happy to help out by supplying her delicious cocoa, made and packaged locally. Just add hot water and you can be sipping a creamy, delicious drink that you’d swear was made with hot milk and a lot of fuss. In addition to its cancer-busting properties, Best Friends also boasts that it’s kosher, all-natural, 99 percent fat free, and contains 15 percent of the daily calcium requirement. With all that going for it, Best Friends Cocoa just might be the perfect health food. And let’s face it: hot cocoa tastes a whole lot better than green tea anyway.

Available for approximately $5.99 for a half-pound bag at Pemberton Farms & Garden Center, 2225 Mass Ave, Cambridge; at Russo’s, 560 Pleasant Street, Watertown; and at Porch, 23 Mystic Street, Arlington. Visit for a complete list of stores.
