I’ll Never Look Back-KEMOSABE Chocolate Cinnamon Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/31/2016

Like most days since I left Gail, Texas after high school and came to New York City to pursue a career in acting I began my day by making a cup of Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon flavored coffee and studying my lines for the off Broadway play I am starring in. For whatever reason, on this particular dreary, rainy morning, I stopped rehearsing my lines, put my notes to one side and began staring at the red cup of steaming hot chocolate cinnamon flavored coffee I had placed on the windowsill in my kitchen.  For the next ten minutes, I became mesmerized by the cup of coffee sitting on my windowsill that I began to reminisce about how my acting career had evolved over the past eleven years from Gail, TX to Broadway.

Irresistibility Smooth-SIPPITY Gourmet Hot Chocolate Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/30/2016

People write to Southwest Beverages and ask how is it that our Sippity hot chocolate mix, when compared to other premium quality gourmet hot chocolate mix brands on the market, is so irresistibility smooth? There are three factors to the answer of this question. First, we use only the best American made ingredients in all our Sippity gourmet hot chocolate mix products. Second, our gourmet hot chocolate mix blend contains all the ingredients-cocoa, flavoring, creamer, sugar, etc.-necessary so that the consumer doesn’t have to add any additional ingredients. Third, we use a proprietary blending process, which, I believe, is the only one of its kind in use in the United States today. The end result, an irresistibility smooth gourmet hot chocolate mix; one that does not lump when stirred and one that completely dissolves when mixed with water. A claim, I believe, can only be made by Sippity hot chocolate mix.

“Boy, will this winter ever end?” Josh stated to me as he walked into the locker room of R & S Furniture Distributors in Schaumberg, IL, referring to the overnight late March snow storm that dumped nine-inches of snow on the greater Chicago area.

“Morning, Josh,” I replied, adding, “Yeah, and next week it will be seventy.”

“Well, it might well be seventy next week but today its thirty-three and we have a full schedule of deliveries.”

“Give me fifteen minutes, Josh, and I’ll be ready to go. I just have to pick up our delivery tickets from Sally in accounting and a make a thermos of Sippity Raspberry hot chocolate.”

“Now that’s a new Sippity flavor I never heard you mention before.”

“Good morning gentlemen. My name is Sydney and I’ll be your server this morning. May I get you some coffee?”

“Yes, please,” Larry, my supervisor, replied.

“And for you, sir?”

“Just a cup of hot water, please.”

“I’ll be back in a few minutes to take your order,” Sydney replied as she looked at me in an odd way.

“I never heard of anyone ordering just a cup of hot water,” Larry stated.

“I do it all the time when I go out to breakfast.”

“You actually drink just plain hot water?”

“No, Larry,” I replied, as I reached into my jacket pocket and took out a Kemosabe Irish cream single serve coffee packet. “I carry serve of these single serve coffee packets with me where ever I go, this way I get to always enjoy my favorite coffee.”

To Get Delicious Coffee Here’s How It Works-KEMOSABE Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/27/2016

“Let me ask you a question, Chloe” my best friend stated to me as we stood in my kitchen in the middle of the afternoon drinking coffee, while waiting for the school bus to drop our kids off. “Why is it that every time I come over here you have such delicious coffee?”

“Olivia, whenever I come to your house you always give me a cup of delicious coffee.”

“It’s no where as good as this coffee, which is what I don’t understand. I have the most expensive Keurig coffee machine and I only buy good quality k-cups.”

Jokingly, I replied, “Well Olivia at least your heading in the right direction.”

“How’s that?’

Incredibly Delicious-KEMOSABE Gourmet Flavored Decaf Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/26/2016

“I need some coffee,” my best friend Jessie said to me outside the university library when we finally stopped studying at 5:45 AM for our 7:00 AM mid-term in advanced statistics.

“I agree with you, Kelly. We need to get a bite to eat and get some caffeine into our bodies,” I replied in a concerned tone.

“Eating now will be the worst thing we could possibly do. It will fill us and make us tired.”

“But I’m hungry. We’ve been in that library since 9 PM last night.”

“I know, Kelly. If it weren’t for us drinking two containers of Kemosabe hazelnut flavored decaf coffee each we would not have been able to stay awake long enough to prepare for this test. I suggest we go to the Student Union and get some fruit or cereal and another container of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut flavored decaf coffee.”

“Let’s go. I’m starving.”

Sensational-KEMOSABE Gluten Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/25/2016

“Janice, this the best tasting gluten free coffee I have ever tasted,” I said to my wife who had just made me a cup of Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon gluten free coffee for me to enjoy on my birthday. “Sensational!” I added, after taking a sip and returning my mug to the table in front of me.

“I thought you would enjoy it,” Janice replied in a pleasant tone knowing that she had given me a wonderful gift for my birthday.

“You know, Janice, being gluten intolerance not only greatly limits what food and beverages I can have but of those that are gluten free there are few that taste good. Certainly not this good!”

“I know, honey. That’s why I got you Kemosabe gourmet gluten free coffee for your birthday.”

Balancing Mind, Body & Spirit-KEMOSABE LITE Sugar Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/24/2016

As humans we strive to have peace of mind, a healthy body and a clean spirit. While there are many ways to feel good about yourself, balancing your mind, body and spirit is one of them. When these three mental, physical and spiritual factors come together they form your equilibrium. It is at this place that you not only feel good, but you look upon the world differently. To re-enforce your equilibrium point it is important that you start your day off with a healthy breakfast.

What's In Your Hot Chocolate Mix DNA?

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/23/2016

We all studied DNA in high school but most likely have forgotten exactly what DNA stands for and is. DNA is the abbreviation for deoxyribonucleic acid, which, simply put, is a long molecule that contains each person's unique, hereditary genetic code. It contains the biological instructions that make every person unique, and all living creatures for that matter. It defines our development as humans, our behavioral traits and how we re-produce. It also includes the decision making process of how we select our hot chocolate mix.

Unlock Sensational Taste-KEMOSABE Crème Butterscotch Single Serve Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/22/2016

“Oh Janice, you were right! This crème butterscotch coffee is absolutely delicious,” my co-worker said to me after I gave her a Kemosabe crème butterscotch single serve coffee packet to try. “Not only is it delicious but I believe it is the best tasting instant coffee I think I ever had. How did you discover this?”

“As you know Cindy, I’m always trying new things particularly new gourmet flavored coffee. Last week, while I was doing my weekly food shopping, I came across a box of Kemosabe crème butterscotch coffee.”

“That’s a rather different flavor.”

“Exactly, Cindy. From the moment I first picked it up the aroma of the crème butterscotch instantly brought back memories of when I was a little girl and went to visit my grandmother, who always had a bowl of crème butterscotch candies ready for my taking.”

Incredibly Delicious-SIPPITY Chocolate Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/20/2016

One of the things I like most about winter is that my Mom gives me hot chocolate after school as a treat. She knows that I like Sippity hot chocolate mix and that the chocolate, chocolate marshmallow and chocolate peppermint hot chocolate flavors are my favorites. My friend Steven likes to come to my house after school because he knows my Mom will make him chocolate peppermint hot chocolate-his favorite, which she usually tops off with whipped cream.

Today we got out of school early because of the snow. Because it was Friday I asked Steven and Joey to come home with me so that we could play in the snow. No sooner did we get settled in the house than my Mom brought us three mugs of chocolate peppermint hot chocolate.

Fundraising Ideas For Year End Prom & Graduation Party Events

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/19/2016

“Ronnie, Brad came to me yesterday and told me that the senior class is short about $8,000 to fund this year’s prom,” referring to Brad Verrett the senior class president of Moorefield High School.

“We haven’t had this situation in quite some time,” Ronnie Engelmann, the principal stated with concern. “Any ideas, Gloria?”

“I don’t know, Ronnie. That’s a lot of money to raise with only eight weeks until the prom and, as you know I’m in charge of raising funds for the graduation party, which by the way also needs about $8,000 to do all the events we are planning to have.”

“That’s $16,000 that the PTA is looking to raise. Gloria, I have all the confidence in the world that you will raise the money but how are you going to do it?

“At this point I honestly don’t know, other than to tell you that we will be having a number of fundraising events over the next several months.”

Drop Everything-Enjoy The Day With KEMOSABE Mocha Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/18/2016

All of us have had those times in our lives where everything, and I mean everything, seems to go wrong. Be it a medical problem, car problem, child problem, relationship problem or the most likely root of all causes, a money problem.

Over the course of the past week or so it seems like the mother tsunami of all problems was thrust upon me. To be honest I had this happen twice in my life in the past and I found the best may forward starts with a good self-talking too. Never give up hope. Everything can be worked out.

Last night I decided to drop everything tomorrow and I called out sick, or that’s at least what my employer will record in the records-I call it an “Attitude Adjustment Day”. 

Spotlight On KEMOSABE Chocolate Irish Cream Gourmet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/17/2016

“What a terrible day to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade,” my high school classmate, Noreen, said to me as I was finishing getting dressed in my bedroom, referring to the wind swept rain that was forecasted all day today in Manhattan.

“You girls had better dress warmer than that,” my Mom said when she popped her head into my bedroom to say hello to Noreen holding a cup of Kemosabe chocolate irish cream gourmet coffee. “It’s supposed to be only forty-one degrees at noon. You girls are going to freeze wearing those short skirts.”

“Mom, it’s the school uniform! If we don’t wear our uniform Sister Joan will crack me on my knuckles with her wooden ruler tomorrow in class. “

“Well at least put on some woolen tights and for heaven sake, pull your shirt down to your knee cap, where its support to be!” Mom demanded.  “I’ll deal with Sister Joan tomorrow, she stated as she walked away talking another sip of her chocolate Irish cream gourmet coffee.

Try Something New-KEMOSABE Gourmet Instant Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/16/2016

“Carol, I’m tired of this coffee,” my best friend of thirty-six years said to me at breakfast this morning. “It’s bland, weak and boring. I need a new kind of coffee. Something that will invigorate me. Something that will get me going in the morning and make me happy.”

“I have just the right coffee for you. My husband, Paul, introduced me to it just last week. His supervisor brought it in one day as a treat for the guys. After all, Joyce, you know those guys work so hard inspecting Chicago’s sewer system. Anyway, Joyce, it’s called Kemosabe coffee and it’s the best tasting instant coffee I think I ever had.”

“Kemosabe instant coffee?” Joyce curiously stated. “I haven’t seen it around. Tell me about it.”

“What a pleasant surprise,” my neighbor and best friend Amanda said when she walked into my kitchen and saw a delicious plate of hot chocolate stuffed french toast topped with strawberry’s and powdered sugar that I had made for myself and was just about to enjoy.

“Would you like some?” I asked.

“Susan, honestly these look to good to eat. But yes, I would like some.”

While Amanda was watching me prepare her plate she asked, “What’s in the French toast?”

“Actually it’s hot chocolate.”

“What an interesting idea. Where did you get the recipe?”

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.”


Positively Uplifting-KEMOSABE French Vanilla Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/13/2016

My seventeen-year-old daughter, Bailey, is a junior at Brookline High School in Del Mar, California and plays on the school’s soccer team. The first game of the season they lost a “heart-breaker” when the opposing team scored a goal with fifteen seconds left off of, in my opinion, a very disputed penalty kick. Today the team is playing Torrey Pines High School, one of the better teams in the league. Bailey is worried if the team loses and goes 0-2 they could very well have no chance of making the playoffs this season as several other teams in the league are expected to go undefeated, including Torrey Pines.

“Bailey, honey, don’t worry about the game,” her father advised at the breakfast table. “You and your team have trained long and hard for this season.”

“I know, Dad, but to lose your opening game has taken the momentum out of the team.”

“Bailey, this is your job as team captain,” I stated as I approached the table holding a cup of Kemosabe French vanilla flavored coffee. “You have to motivate the team,” I added. “Talk to them before the game. Put some of that “killer instinct” you have into them.”

Fall Back In Love-KEMOSABE Chocolate Hazelnut Instant Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/12/2016

Having put in an eighty-hour week I decided last night that I would sleep in tomorrow morning or at least until 10 AM when my ex-wife, Linda, was to bring over our two sons for me to watch for the weekend.  The rays of the morning sun radiating down on my bed awoke me at 9:20 AM. I laid in bed for the next ten minutes enjoying the warmth of the sun after a long hard Boston winter and took toll of my life. Divorced, 37-year-old father of two boy’s-Adam 8 and Kyle 6, living in a two-bedroom apartment on Boston’s north end and no girlfriend to speak of, other than a few dates here and there.

Something this morning felt different. Perhaps it was the fact that the forecasted temperature was to be seventy-seven degrees, a rare spring day given this time of year in Boston. A day when you have that extra “bounce” in your step and love is in the air. Realizing that Linda would be dropping the boys off in twenty minutes, I quickly showered and made myself a delicious cup of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee. No sooner did I get to enjoy a few sips of my hazelnut instant coffee than my doorbell rang.

SIPPITY Hot Cocoa Mix-Every Flavor Tells A Story

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/11/2016

I'm senior at Marshall High School in Little Rock Arkansas and today in our entrepreneurial class our teacher assigned us a project that requires us to pick a consumer goods product to study and make a class presentation. I chose Sippity hot cocoa mix not only because I like it but because I believe it is the best hot chocolate mix in America.

In researching the brand, I found that its brand positioning is quite unique in that the company encourages consumers to become part of the brand. Consumers are encouraged to send in their photographs drinking Sippity hot cocoa mix for a chance to appear on the cover of one of their brand flavors or to appear in the “Mug-Shots” section on the back of each hot cocoa mix box. Consumers are also encouraged to submit recipes and testimonials, which might appear on the company website.

Mom’s Best Hot Chocolate Mix Award Winner-SIPPITY LITE Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/10/2016

Every year most companies spend a lot of money to improve their products quality control. As with everything in life there is an exception to this rule. That exception occurs in the banquet business where the banquet facility’s quality control program rests with the opinion of the mother of the bride. If you want to have the best food, service and atmosphere in the banquet business ask the mother of the bride for her opinion (or in some unfortunate instances she will tell you). Accordingly, we respect and cherish the opinion of Moms who serve Sippity Lite to their family. To date we have heard nothing but praise for Sippity Lite from Mom’s who have told us it is the best hot chocolate mix in America.

Why Don't We Meet Over Coffee? - KEMOSABE Gourmet Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/9/2016

I knew that this will be a rather long call so I made myself a cup of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut gourmet flavored coffee before I sat down to call Jerry, the partner of our account at Lippett, Moore & Douglas, CPA’s.

“Hi Jerry, Frank Bowman here. As you know our company has been contemplating purchasing Wickman Tool & Die for some time now. Last night the Wickman board accepted our offer.”

“That’s great, Frank. Congratulations. It will be a wonderful fit.”

“Jerry, we need to engage your firm to review and certify five years of the financial statements of Wickman before we can close the deal. Time is of the essence,” I added. “As Chief Financial Officer of the company the board told me they want this deal done within the next two months. I know that this puts you under a lot of pressure to get your side of things done but that’s the timeline.”

Resolve To Make Life Easier-KEMOSABE Single Serve Coffee Packets

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/8/2016

Let's face it-today's life style is much more complex than it was twenty years ago. Take looking for a job. In the "old" days you prepared a resume, e-mailed it to a prospective employer and waited for a reply. Today you have to go on-line and spend, on average, forty-five minutes filling out a comprehensive application, only to see it disappear into "space". Another example. Employers today expect you to be "on-call" not quite 24-7 but certainly from 6 AM to 10 PM. This has added a lot of added demands on the employee and their family. The last thing you need to worry about in this environment is to have trouble with your coffee pot in the morning. One such way to avoid this potential problem, and to ensure that you enjoy your favorite coffee all day long, regardless of where you go, is to always have available Kemosabe gourmet flavored single serve coffee packets.

Just Right For The Weekend!-SIPPITY Cinnamon Flavored Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/7/2016
“Larry, I need a favor,” my sister stated when she called me at work on Friday afternoon.

“Sure, what’s up?”

“It’s Sammy. She’s hanging out again with the wrong kids and I’m afraid of what might happen this weekend.”

“What might happen this weekend?

“It seems several of her friends are going to one of their girlfriend’s house for the weekend and I found out the girl’s parents will be out of town for both days. And we all know what happened the last time Sammy sleep over at her girlfriend’s house!” I proclaimed, referring to when Sammy was arrested for underage drinking.”

“Sure, Megan, I’ll watch her for the weekend, attitude and all. Can you do me a favor? Drop her off at my workplace since I have to work till 6 PM tonight?”

“No problem, Larry. I certainly appreciate it. What’s your work address?”

“6207 E. Spindrift Road in Madison.”

Promptly at 6 PM Larry punched out and headed for the company cafeteria to get three containers of Sippity chocolate cinnamon flavored hot chocolate. One for me to enjoy on my drive back to Milwaukee, one was for Sammy and one was for himself. He figured everyone would enjoy a nice container of chocolate cinnamon flavored hot chocolate since it was eighteen degrees out.

Refreshingly Warm-SIPPITY Chocolate Marshmallow Hot Cocoa

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/6/2016
To celebrate our eighteenth wedding anniversary, yesterday my wonderful and romantic husband, Logan, surprised me with a late afternoon cruise of Hyannis Harbor and dinner at Alberto’s Ristorante on Main Street. We had lived in Lowell, Massachusetts, a quiet suburban town about twenty miles north of Boston, our entire lives and never went on the water cruise of Hyannis Harbor. Friends of ours who have taken the cruise have raved about it so when Logan told me of his plans I was very excited.

The seventy-five mile drive down to Hyannis was most enjoyable given the fact that we were enjoying a rare early March day where the temperature was in the high sixties. Shortly after 3:30 PM we parked our car on Ocean Street and walked the short distance to the Hi Lines dock where our cruise was scheduled to depart at 4 PM.

Within ten minutes of our departure the winds on the open sea had made it quite chilly and raw. “I’ll be back in a minute,” Logan stated, then turned and walked away from out top deck viewing position. 

Just A Half Cup Of Coffee, Please-KEMOSABE Gourmet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/5/2016

Usually I don’t eat breakfast before work, but today for whatever reason I went to The Oak Room on Sixth for breakfast.

“I’m Lisa, and I’ll be your server today,” this very cute young lady said as she stood at my table holding a coffee pot. “Coffee?”

“Actually, I came here for breakfast and because I know you serve Kemosabe gourmet coffee.”

“That’s right, sir.”

“Please don’t call me sir. Only my kids call me sir,” I jokingly replied, to which Lisa smiled. My name is Ken.”

“OK, Ken. We have several flavors of Kemosabe gourmet coffee: Mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut, French vanilla and chocolate irish cream.”

“I think I’ll have the chocolate cinnamon.”

“I’ll be back in a minute with your coffee and to take your order,” she replied, handing me a menu.

No Strings Attached-SIPPITY Chocolate Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/4/2016

“I have to take a break,” I said to my co-worker, Ryan, referring to the fact that for the past three and a half hours I have been working non-stop to close the books for the month of February for my employer, McCown Canvas & Tarpaulin Co. “Do you want to take a break with me? I’m just running downstairs to the Boxcar Café to get a container of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate.”

“Thanks for asking, Kent, but I have so much work to do. Can you bring me back a container of chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate?”

“Sure. No problem. See you in fifteen minutes.”

Fifteen minute later, with two twenty-ounce containers of Sippity chocolate cinnamon hot chocolate in my hands I saw the doors on the elevator begin to close so I called out to the people on the elevator, “Hold it, please!”

“Thanks a lot,” I stated as I entered the elevator. “Can you press seventeen for me?” I added, asking this very attractive brunette standing next to me and in front of the floor control panel.

“Wow! that hot chocolate smells delicious,” she stated about ten seconds after she pressed the 17th floor button and took her place next to me.

Here’s One Thing You Don’t Have To Worry About-SIPPITY Hot Chocolate

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/3/2016

It’s a little more than a week before our family begins our annual spring break pilgrimage to my parent’s house in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Every year the kids look forward to getting away from the cold of La Crosse, Wisconsin to the warmth, sunshine and pool of their grandparent’s house. What they don’t look forward to is the 2 day-975-mile car trip that usually takes us about eighteen-hours and costs us about nine-hundred dollars for food, hotel and gas, roundtrip.

It’s towards the end of this week that I begin packing for my three kids, Billy-age 11, Jeff-age 9 and Karen-age 6 and of course, the “big kid”, my husband, Dan. Haven knows how I do it each year. And now as the kids are older they want to take their skate boards, game boards, laptops and dolls. I’ll tell you my anxiety level is off the “charts” come Friday night. Literally the one thing I don’t have to worry about is what to give the kids as a treat during our car ride and in the hotel room after dinner. It’s Sippity hot chocolate

Amazing. Spectacular. KEMOSABE Caffeine Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/2/2016

“Oh my goodness, Robin, this coffee is absolutely amazing!” my best friend stated after she took her first sip of the Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut coffee I had given her while we were discussing the theme for my daughters eighth birthday party in kitchen.

“Isn’t it spectacular,” I replied. “And you’re not going to believe me when I tell you, but its caffeine free, or almost-99.9 % caffeine free.”

“Are you kidding me, Robin. Finally, I found a coffee that I can drink all day that will not give me the jitters.”

“Not only is it 99.9 % caffeine free coffee, Joyce but its 100 % gluten free as well. I absolutely love it.”

“What’s the name of the coffee? Joyce asked as she drew her cup to her mouth.
