Create A Lifestyle-SIPPITY Iced Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/20/2016

For the past two summers millennials have flocked to coffee shops across America to order gourmet flavored iced hot chocolate. While they have come to realize that iced hot chocolate is a very refreshing beverage, more important they wish to distance themselves from their parents Starbuck’s coffee generation and claim iced hot chocolate as the beverage of their generation.

Millennials are drinking on average 2.2 16 ounce containers of iced hot chocolate a day. They usually enjoy one iced hot chocolate container first thing in the morning, be it at work or at home. In mid-afternoon on workdays they enjoy their second container of ice hot chocolate. Millennials are purchasing iced hot chocolate in a variety of gourmet flavors-chocolate raspberry, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate peppermint, chocolate strawberry and yes, pumpkin spice, despite the stigma that most people only drink pumpkin spice hot chocolate in the fall. While millennials grew up drinking chocolate and marshmallow flavored hot chocolate, few now drink marshmallow iced hot chocolate and even less drink plain chocolate iced hot chocolate.

There is no mistake about it millennials, generally speaking, are creating their own lifestyle-be it though clothing, workstyle, technology, transportation and now iced hot chocolate-the beverage of their choice.
