“Killer” Hot Chocolate-SIPPITY Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/24/2016

“I really enjoyed that walk,” Karen, my wife of twenty-seven years stated after we returned from our late evening walk along the half-mile shore of Lamoine Beachto our vacation cottage on Hodgkins Lane. “Can I get you anything?” Karen asked as I took my seat in a wicker rocker on the front porch.

 “Yes, actually, can you bring out my sweatshirt when you come back?  A few minutes later Karen returned, with a quilt in one hand and the NYPD sweatshirt I had received two weeks earlier as a gift from one of the guys at my retirement party from the 57th North homicide division. “You know, Karen,” I said as I began to slip the blue hooded sweatshirt over my head. “They say there are two seasons in Maine, Winter and August.” Before I could finish my thought, the sound of a police cruiser’s siren drew closer. Karen and I watched as it raced past our house down Lamoine Beach Road towards “Lickity Splits” ice cream shop. “Let’s go, Karen,” I firmly stated to my wife.

 “Where are we going?”

 “We’re going to follow that cop car!”

 Five minutes later we were met by a very young police Officer who was standing over a body behind Lickity Splits. “Don’t touch anything!” I hollered as I approached the crime screen.

  “Are you a cop?” the Officer asked seeing my sweatshirt.

 “Yes. Detective Mike Scobie. 57th North homicide division, Manhattan!” I said with authority. “Call it in, son!”

 As we were waiting for our back up to arrive I began searching the area surrounding the woods in back of Lickity Splits.

“What did you find?” the Officer called out, as I returned from the woods holding a blue plastic cup over the end of a branch.

 “Apparently, our killer likes hot chocolate,” I stated as I placed the container of Sippity chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate on the hood of his cruiser.
