This Christmas soap is scented with hot cocoa and peppermint. It is the perfect Christmas drink, and you need not be concerned about overindulgence as this is Mr. Woodhouse approved.
"He had, therefore, earnestly tried to dissuade them from having any wedding cake at all, and when that proved vain, as earnestly tried to prevent any body’s eating it. He had been at the pains of consulting Mr. Perry, the apothecary, on the subject." ~Mr. Woodhouse, of Emma, by Jane Austen.
Mr. Woodhouse would like us to believe he eats nothing but “thin gruel.” But what if he had a secret delight? A taste for hot chocolate that began as a sip at Christmas and turned into a daily indulgence? For though he could not abide the richness of cake, there is no mention of other desserts in Emma. Perhaps Ms. Austen did not want us to know that, in fact, Mr. Woodhouse had a weakness: hot cocoa with peppermint. So easily hidden in his cup, there was no need for anyone to know what he was drinking.
He is certain there is no peril to be had with such an innocent indulgence. Did he have it in the morning, whilst still abed? Or did he drink it near the fire, in his favorite chair? I suppose we will never know.
This chocolatey soap smells so yummy that you might need a cup of hot cocoa right after your bath!
