On any given night you'll find me working at the computer after the baby has been put to bed and the older two have settled down for the evening. Between 8 and 9:00 the cravings kick in and I can't help but indulge in some chocolate. I've confessed before that often means a bowl of ice cream, but in the winter months I'll often go the opposite direction and have a mug of hot cocoa. I love that I can sip it for a while and it will warm me up and satisfy my chocolate urges. While I will always love a classic milk chocolate flavored cocoa it's so fun to discover and try other flavors of cocoa.
Southwest Beverages sent me some of their Sippity instant hot chocolate for my family to try. Sippity hot cocoa is a dry mix that you can just add to water to create a comforting and incredibly tasty warm beverage. To experience “Comfort In A Cup®” simply empty one envelope into a mug with 8 ounces of hot water, stir, cradle the mug in your hands, then sip, savor and enjoy.
Sippity is available in six flavors: chocolate, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate cinnamon, pumpkin spice, chocolate peppermint and chocolate raspberry. They also have a line of Sippity Lite products that have the same great taste and full body aroma as the Sippity products but with less than 2 grams of sugar per serving. Sippity Lite comes in the same six flavors.
My kids definitely take after me in their enjoyment of hot chocolate. In fact my son tends to drink it about every night before bed. They loved helping me taste-test the different flavors we received. Although I have to say there was no clear winner. They loved Chocolate Marshmallow while I loved Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate Peppermint. My daughter really enjoyed Pumpkin Spice as well. It reminded me a lot of a Chai type beverage.
I'm really not much of a coffee drinker, but sometimes I just feel like I need the caffeine. Adding a teaspoonful of Sippity hot cocoa mix instantly creates a delicious flavored coffee at home. No expensive coffee shop trip is necessary.
