Warm & Comfy-SIPPITY Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 10/12/2016

Being a single Mom requires a lot of work, which gets compounded in the fall when I must tend to the yard cleanup chores. Last Saturday I had promised my two boys, Troy-age 8 and Ryan-age 6 that I would take them to the pumpkin patch in the afternoon after I had worked in the garden in the morning removing the summer annuals and replacing them with the fall mums. Well overnight on Friday a cold front from Canada entered Albany and I awoke to a frosty 29 degrees. Needless to say after I had worked in the garden from 8 AM to noon my little hands were frozen.

“We made you a surprise,” Troy called out when I entered the mud room to remove my boots. Haven knows what this could be I thought to myself after all my two young boys have offer surprises in the past that included marking up the family room walls on Mother’s Day with Happy Mother’s Day-Mom greetings and “warming up” their pet hamster, Sam, in the microwave, to name just a few.

“What a wonderful surprise,” I proclaimed as I walked into the kitchen and saw there on the kitchen table a mug of steaming hot Sippity hot chocolate wrapped in my favorite embroidered mug holder sitting on a brown and teal colored napkins.

“We thought this would warm you up, Mom,” Ryan softly stated as he hugged my waist.

With a tear in my eye, I replied, “You guys are the best.” I then proceeded to sit at the table between Ryan and Troy and enjoy the cup of Sippity hot chocolate they had prepared for me. “Boy, does this hot chocolate ever hit the spot,” I passionately stated after I had taken the first sip. “It’s warm and comfy,” I added.

“Are we still going to the pumpkin patch this afternoon?” Troy asked.

“Of course, Troy. Just let me have five minutes to warm up and enjoy this wonderful cup of hot chocolate you made for me.”
