Giving Thanks for SIPPITY Hot Cocoa Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 11/22/2016

“Boy, whose idea was it to have a tailgate party?” I stated to the group of nine Riverdale high school football parents gathered around Sammy’s SUV eating various pastries on Thanksgiving morning. “It must be freezing out here,” I added.

“Tommy, it’s a play-off game,” declared the linebacker’s mom, Joy.

“Yeah, Tommy, get with the program the quarterbacks father stated. “We haven’t been in the playoffs in 18 years let alone playing in today’s championship game.”

“Just as I had stated, “I need something to warm me up,” the coach’s wife arrived holding a 25 pack of Sippity Hot Cocoa mix packets. “Hi everyone,” Cindy happily stated. “What a great day. Today our boys will become state champs. I can feel it.”

“Well, I’m glad you can fell something, Cindy” I sarcastically injected, “because it’s so cold out here that I can’t feel anything anymore.”

“Well then, Tommy,” Cindy replied, “this should help warm you up,” she added as she handed me the box of Sippity hot cocoa mix.

“You’re an angel from haven,” I replied, taking the box of Sippity hot cocoa mix from Cindy.  “Oh what a pleasant surprise,” I announced after I had opened the box to discover the array of gourmet hot cocoa mix flavors inside. “Look, everyone, we have chocolate, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate raspberry and chocolate peppermint flavored hot cocoa mix.”

Over the course of the next hour everyone reminisced about the season just pasted and talked, with excitement, about today’s championship game, while enjoying their hot chocolate. Suddenly, Cindy called out. “May I have everyone’s attention. Today, being Thanksgiving, we have a lot to be thankful for. The coach and I just wanted to thank everyone for their support of the team this year. It has been a great year and today will be a great day. Happy Thanksgiving.”

“That’s for sure, Cindy,” I called out. “We have you to be thankful for, for bringing that box of Sippity hot cocoa mix, which provided us all with this delicious hot chocolate,” I added as I held up my container of chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate in Cindy’s direction. “Happy Thanksgiving.”
