It’s A Comfort Drink-SIPPITY Chocolate Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 9/22/2016

“Must you keep the air conditioning on such a low setting?” my wife of twelve years asked after the alarm clock had awoken us at 5:15 AM. “It’s freezing in here,” she added referring to the 68-degree setting.

“You know I can’t sleep unless it’s cold in the room,” I answered.

“Well cold is one thing, but freezing is another,” she angrily replied as she threw the covers off and got out of bed. “I’ll be downstairs. I need to make a cup of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate to warm up.”

A few minutes later I was in the kitchen making a mug of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate, wrapped in a blanket I use to keep warm when I watch television. As soon as the mug of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate was ready I cradling it in both my warms in an effort to warm my hands. I stood there for a good thirty-seconds cradled mug in hands and savored the moment. I then took my first sip. “Ah,” I whispered as the rich creamy taste of the chocolate and the sweet spicy taste of the cinnamon came together to provide me with immediate warmth and comfort. After I had taken my second sip, I made my way outside to our patio where the warm Palm Springs air greeted me. There, in the dark, I sat for the next fifteen minutes enjoying the warmth of the air and the comfort my mug of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate provided.  

“Here you are, Adrian,” my husband said as he joined me on the patio. “How’s your chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate?” he asked given no consideration to the reason I was out here in the first place.

“Absolutely delicious. You know honey, the tag line for Sippity, ‘comfort in a cup’, is perfect,” I replied as I held the mug up in his direction. “Sippity hot chocolate truly does provide comfort in a cup.”

“Perhaps you should drink a cup before you come to bed each night so that you can stay warm throughout the night,” he sarcastically stated.

“Perhaps you should turn the thermostat down!”
