2021 Sweet As Hutt’s Hot Chocolate Challenge™ is back with a bang!

Candy floss, Russian fudge, Filipino-style coconut macaroons, peppermint and bubble gum are just some of the delicious flavours on offer for a limited time when the “Sweet As” Hutt’s Hot Chocolate Challenge™ gets underway next month.

The challenge, into its seventh year, will see 15 hospitality operators including cafes, restaurants, a couple of pubs and a bakery in Lower Hutt’s City Centre, create their own signature hot chocolate drinks for people to enjoy throughout the school holidays. Customers will be the given the chance to vote for their favourite hot chocolate on the new Sweet As Hutt’s Hot Chocolate website with the winning hot chocolate declared at the end of the challenge which takes place between 8-25 July.

Originality and creativity are once again shown through with this year’s entries. Customers can be treated to a Mid-Winter X-mas peppermint hot chocolate with a candy cane peppermint lolly at Hot Gossip Café, savour flavours of taro and coconut at Beforetime Express with the Taro Ultra Hot Chocolate, enjoy a Hudsons Queensgate’s Three’s A Charm, hot chocolate platter, excite the kids with Teddy Bear Happy Land involving candy floss, homemade coconut ice, rainbow marshmallows and more at Sierra Café, and even a Macadamia Treasure Chest at Tutaki Café,- there is something to suit all taste buds.

The website Sweet As Challenge features all of the important information on each hot chocolate as well as a photo of each hot chocolate.

A booklet and map is available as a downloadable PDF.

We rely on you to vote on the Sweet As hot chocolates you try during the Challenge- the Sweet As hot chocolate with the most votes wins the title ‘Sweetest Hutt’s Hot Chocolate. Vote by scanning the unique QR Codes and voting directions can be found at each participating Challenger location. It is a simple three-step process using your smartphone.

Back again by popular demand is Buzz cafe’s famous Death by Hot Chocolate Party and for the first time Hot Gossip will do a late-night hot chocolate evening, Cutlers Gastropub will also be running a Hot Chocolate Happy Hour with four hot chocolates to choose from every night!
