SIPPITY Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix-A Gift Worthy Of A Best Friend

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/15/2016

Almost every day last winter my best friend, Joey, got off the school bus with me at the end of the school day and came to my house where my mom always had waiting cookies and hot chocolate. Today is Joey’s birthday, which also happens to be the first day of school.

“Happy birthday, Joey,” I stated to my best friend when I saw him at the bus stop this morning. “Are you coming over this afternoon? My mom wants to know. She has a present for you.”

No sooner had Joey replied, “yes,” then the bus arrived to take us to the Jefferson Middle School.

“Good to see you guys again,” the bus driver stated as Joey and I walked up the steps of the bus. “Happy birthday, Joey,” the bus driver added.

Later that afternoon Joey got off the bus with me at my house and when we got inside my mom gave Joey a big hug and said, “Happy Birthday, Joey. Let’s start the school year off right. I made chocolate chip cookies and iced chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate for you guys.”

“Wow! Mrs. Danielson,” Joey stated as he entered the kitchen and saw two talk glasses of Sippity iced chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate topped with whipped cream and fruit loops.

A few minutes later, while Joey and I were enjoying our snack, my mom came into the kitchen singing Happy Birthday and holding a present. “Happy birthday, Joey,” she said after she had finished embarrassing me my singing happy birthday. “Here, I got you a present,” she stated as she handed the present to Joey. Without saying a word (because that’s what 9-year-olds-do), Joey quickly unwrapped the present.

“Sippity hot cocoa mix!” he announced with excitement as he tore away the wrapping paper. “Thanks, Mrs. Danielson.”

“I thought you would like a box of Sippity gourmet hot cocoa mix,” my Mom stated. “And I got your favorite flavor, chocolate marshmallow.”

“Your mom is so cool,” Joey stated to me after my mom had left the kitchen.

“Hey, Joey. I told her to get it for you since you’re my best friend I know how much you enjoy Sippity gourmet hot cocoa mix.”
