Goodbye Sugar-Hello Sippity Lite Sugar Free Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 11/4/2016

“Laura, you’ve got to help me,” I stated to my best friend as we randomly bumped into one another in the parking lot of Gibson High School on our way to class.

“Sure Kelly, what’s up?” I replied after I had just taken a sip from the container of Sippity Lite chocolate flavored sugar free hot chocolate I was holding.

“I can’t seem to lose any weight and with the holidays just around the corner I’m afraid that I’m going to gain at least fifteen pounds. You’re always in shape, can you help me?”

“Of course I’ll help you. People think that losing weight is extremely difficult when in fact it is quite easy.”

“How’s that?”

“To lose weight you need to do three things, Kelly. First you must have the proper mind-set. Believe in yourself that you can not only lose the weight but keep it off. Second, you need to begin an exercise program. I suggest you start today. Come with me today after school to the gym. Third, you must watch what you eat and eat healthy foods and beverages. Take this container of Sippity Lite sugar free hot chocolate,” I said as I held the container up towards Kelly. “This 12-ounce container of chocolate flavored hot chocolate contains only 130 calories, about 2 grams of sugar and takes great. It’s simply the best tasting sugar free hot chocolate on the market today. Here Kelly, taste it,” I suggested as I extended the container towards her.

“Wow! Laura, this is really good,” Kelly proclaimed as she returned the container to me.

“I told you so. It’s better than any sugar based hot chocolate you would buy at the coffee house. So, as you can see, Kelly, it’s important that you eat the right foods and drink the right beverages.”

“You convinced me Laura,” Kelly stated as she held the front door to the school open for me. I’ll see you after third period when we can go to the store and get a container of Sippity Lite sugar free hot chocolate.”

“See you then.”

“Hey Laura,” Kelly called out to me as she stood in the middle of the hall on her way to class. “One more thing, goodbye sugar, hello Sippity Lite sugar free hot chocolate.” She then smiled and walked down the hall.
