Montreal, Quebec, Canada
SÜK is the story of a girl who did not like coffee.
But she LOOOOOVED chocolate. Hot chocolate, it goes without saying... Every morning, at bedtime, a hot chocolate. Really! Who does not want to get out of bed knowing that the first thing that will be there on the breakfast table is chocolate?
But, realizing that finding good quality, affordable hot chocolate was mission impossible, she began to create the best hot chocolate in her kitchen to beautify her mornings.
Over the years and spicy experiments, Catherine slowly but surely developed delicate and rich flavours to enhance her morning drink. Listening only to her love for hot chocolate, and knowing that EVERYONE loves chocolate, she created the SÜK hot chocolate mixes.
Available in 5 flavours (dark, milk, spicy, chai and mocha), SÜK hot chocolates are made with the finest ingredients: dutch cocoa powder, Barry-Callebaut dark Belgian chocolate, organic cane sugar, and organic spices.
Hey... And the hot chocolate is not only for the morning ... It is perfect in the afternoon as well!
