Spotlight On Americas Best Hot Chocolate Mix-SIPPITY Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 5/21/2016

“Forest, I know you love hot chocolate, particularly iced hot chocolate, so let me ask you, what do you think is the best hot chocolate mix in America?” I asked my good friend while we were having lunch in the university cafeteria.

“That’s a rather odd question, Ray. Why do you ask?”

“Well, our economics professor assigned each student a question relating to a consumer goods product and asked that we research it and prepare a five-minute oral presentation for class next Wednesday.

“To be honest, I have tried all the top name hot chocolate mixes America has to offer-Godiva, Ghirardelli, Starbucks, Sippity, Land of Lakes, Swiss Miss and Nestle-and to be honest, without any doubt I would say Sippity is Americas best hot chocolate mix.”

“Why’s that?”

“Because, in my opinion, Swiss Mix and Nestle taste like diluted flavored chocolate water, Godiva and Starbucks are overpriced, Ghirardelli makes good chocolate but their hot chocolate mix is not up to the same standard as their chocolate and well, while Land of Lakes is good, Sippity is the best hot chocolate mix. Sippity does not lump when it is stirred-it completely dissolves. Relative to each of the other brands, which has about three-quarters of an ounce of product in its packaging, Sippity has a little less than two ounces of product in each package, nearly two and one-half times more product. In addition, Sippity is priced more competitively than Godiva, Starbucks and Ghirardelli.

“This is good stuff, Forest. You’re helping me a lot with my paper. Anything else you can tell me about why you believe Sippity is the best hot chocolate mix in America?”

“Sippity offers a great range of flavors-chocolate, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate peppermint, chocolate raspberry, chocolate strawberry and pumpkin spice. In addition, Ray, and this is clearly a major factor as to why Sippity is by far Americas best hot chocolate mix, while their Sippity Lite brand offers the same great flavors as their Sippity brand, it contains less than two grams of sugar per serving and it tastes exactly the same as their Sippity products. Exactly the same taste, Forest? This is huge to diet drinkers. To find a beverage that is healthy and good tasting. They simply don’t exist.”

“Boy, you sure know a lot about Sippity.”

“That’s because it is the best hot chocolate mix in America. Hands down! And when something is good you remember it.”

“Thanks for your input, Forest. You made me writing this paper a lot easier. On another matter, our physics professor assigned us a project to research quantum physics.”

“Sorry, Ray, you’re on your own on that one.”
