Cocoa Tidings-SIPPITY Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 12/21/2016

“That was a tough game,” Paul stated to me in the locker room following our playoff game victory against the Larson City Bulldogs. “They’re linebacker was awesome! That guy seemed to be everywhere I tried to run today,” Paul added referring to him being the team’s running back and was tackled often by the opposing team’s linebacker.

“Awesome is not the word for that guy! I proclaimed. He’ll be in the NFL someday,” I answered. “But the fact of the matter is we won and next week we’re playing for the state championship.”

“Hopefully, the weather will be a little more cooperative,” Paul stated. “Man, it was raw out there today. That wind got to me midway through the third quarter.”

Just as I replied to Paul, “me too,” coach De Angelo entered the locker room and loudly announced, “Cocoa Tidings, guys,” as he placed two-fifty single serve packet boxes of Sippity peppermint hot chocolate mix on the refreshment table. “This was a great win today! I’m proud of all you guys. You played well. Now warm up and enjoy the peppermint hot chocolate. We’ll talk more on the bus in 45 minutes.”
