Allegro drinking chocolate is outrageously good like no hot cocoa you have ever had. It is better made with water, not milk. Fantastic for you dairy sensitives.

I cannot locate Allegro "Celebration Caffe", medium roast/ 8 oz. ground in my local Whole Foods. Help! I want to buy more of this fantastic coffee.

@KATHY - So sorry about that. Did you check with the Specialty team at your local store to make sure Allegro still produces this option? You can also shop online at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/online-ordering if your local store does not carry it any longer.
