Rain or Shine-SIPPITY Hot Chocolate Is Comforting

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/14/2016

“Hi Jimmy,” I said to my boyfriend when I called him from my dorm room at the University of Washington in Seattle shortly after noon.

“What a pleasant surprise,” he replied from the deck of his parent’s house in Rye Brook, NY on a glorious, warm late afternoon late winter’s day.

“I can’t wait for spring break next week to come and see you. What’s going on?”

“Actually, I just finished ‘waking-up’ my parent’s lawn for the spring,” Jimmy replied, referring to the thatching, cleanup and fertilizing of the lawn that occurs on the first warm day in late winter. “My Mom just brought me a nice tall glass of iced Sippity raspberry hot chocolate.”

“I don’t believe it, Jimmy. I’m actually sitting here in my dorm on this miserable, rainy day enjoying a cup of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate.”

“What’s the odds of that happening?” Jimmy asked. “You’re three thousand miles away drinking Sippity hot chocolate and I’m here in Rye Brook drinking Sippity iced hot chocolate.”

“Pretty unusual,” I replied. “Perhaps the only thing that might be stranger than this would be if we were both drinking the same flavor of hot chocolate.”

“Next week, Lori. Next week.”
