Made For Headwinds-SIPPITY Chocolate Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 5/2/2016

“Let’s take the boat out tomorrow, hon,” I suggested to my wife, Jamie.” The forecast is for it to be sunny and in the upper sixties,” I added with excitement in my voice.

“What a great idea, Larry. We can go up the coast,” Jamie suggested referring to boating up the coast of Connecticut from Greenwich to Old Saybrook, which we had done several times late last season.

Early Saturday morning Jamie and I headed to the Indian Harbor Yacht Club where we had our sixteen-foot Bayliner Element moored. A half-hour after we arrived at the Club we were on our way out of Greenwich Harbor towards Long Island Sound and up the coast of Connecticut. “What a strong head wind,” I stated to Jamie as we passed the city of Stamford on our left.

“Not only is it a strong headwind, it’s cold,” Jamie answered as she zipped her jacket up to her neck. “I’m going downstairs to make some cinnamon hot chocolate. Do you want one?”

“That would be great, Jamie,” I replied, as I held the wheel firmly and accelerated towards the city of Bridgeport.

“Five minutes later Jamie emerged from the galley with two sixteen-ounce containers of Sippity Chocolate Cinnamon Hot Chocolate.

After taking one long sip from the container Jamie had handed me, I stated, “Given these strong headwinds, this chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate sure hits the spot.”

“I guess that’s why the company made their tag line, “Comfort In A Cup®”, Jamie replied as she cuddled with me.
