Hej Ruba!


Jag tycker inte heller om kaffe :innocent:


Med "kakao", menar du chokladdryck?

I Sverige brukar vi säga "oboy" efter ett märke som heter "oboy".

Om det är en varm chokladdryck, kallar vi den för "varm choklad".


Ha det bra!

Hej Engla!

Hmmmm jag tycker inte om kaffe, men jag dricker te till frukosten, och jag älskar kakao; eftersom den är hälsosam och smakar gott!


Tack och hälsningar.
