CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

How can you get the best flavor from your hot chocolate? Apparently it's not the type of cocoa you use, but the color of the cup you're drinking from.

Next time you grab a mug to make yourself some sweet, delicious hot cocoa, take an extra second to choose an orange or cream-colored cup.

Researchers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the University of Oxford prepared hot chocolate in four differently colored cups: red, white, orange and cream.

When they fed it to 57 subjects, the testers reported a better taste from the orange and cream cups.
