Home Party Idea-Fruit Loop Iced Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 7/27/2015

Last year I missed my son’s 5th birthday because I had to work overtime delivering a train load of cargo containers that were released earlier in the week as a result of the Port of Los Angeles strike settling. I pledged to myself then that I would never miss Craig’s birthday again (they grow up so fast). To make it up to Craig, this year my wife and I decided to have a sleep over birthday party and invited six of his friends. 

It was shortly after 6 PM when the kids finished the hot dogs Emily had made. I could see from the look on their faces that the 3 hours in the pool this afternoon and the hot dogs was not getting them excited. They needed something special. I looked to Emily, “They need to be ‘Imped out’”, I declared. She immediately knew what I meant and headed for the kitchen. At my 9th birthday, my friend, Johnny Imp, took it upon himself to pour Coke, rather than milk, into the ice cream soda my mother was letting us make. Needless to say, the party ended shortly thereafter as the foam from Johnny’s ice cream soda was all over the table and carpet.

Five minutes later Emily brought out a tray with 7 glasses of iced chocolate flavored hot chocolate, whipped cream, chocolate syrup and fruit loops. For weeks after, all I heard from the parents was about the fruit looped iced hot chocolate drinks.
