SIPPITY Hot Chocolate For Dessert Is Not Lame

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/17/2016

"Do you guys want any dessert?” my wife called out to me and my 12-year-old grandson, Mark, from the kitchen of the house we were renting in Chatham on Cape Cod.

“I’ll have a cup of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate,” I called back. “There seems to be a bit of a chill in the air tonight,” I added.

“You’re so lame, grandpa, Mark firmly stated. “Hot chocolate for dessert?” he questioned.

“I have it all the time. It relaxes me. You should try it.”

“Mark, honey, can I get you something for dessert?” my wife called out.

“Tell her you want a cup of Sippity chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate,” I whispered, trying to edge Mark on.  “It’s not as lame as you think.”

“I’ll have a cup of Sippity chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate, grandma.”

Five minutes later my wife come onto the deck holding a tray containing three cups of hot chocolate. “Here’s your chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate, dear,” she stated when she handed my cup to me. “And here’s your chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate, Mark,” she stated handing Mark his cup.

“Thank you grandma.” Mark replied.

“Now, isn’t this a wonderful way to spend our first night at the Cape,” my wife stated as she made herself comfortable in an Adirondack chair next to Mark referring to the fact that we were relaxing on the back deck of our rental home over-looking the Atlantic Ocean while drinking hot chocolate.

“Humm, this chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate is delicious, grandma,” Mark stated with enthusiasm after he had taken his first sip.

“I told you hot chocolate is not lame,” I stated to Mark as I relaxed the cup of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate I was holding on my knee.

“What do you mean hot chocolate is lame?” my wife asked me.

“Mark thinks drinking hot chocolate for dessert is lame,” I told my wife.

After taking another sip from his cup of chocolate marshmallow hot chocolate, Mark stated, “Actually, grandpa, hot chocolate for dessert is not lame.”

As an aside from the manufacturer of Sippity hot chocolate: about 20 % of people that drink hot chocolate drink it as a dessert after dinner.
