My Hunt for Swiss Miss French Vanilla Hot Chocolate
When it comes to edible stuff, I have an obsessive thing where I love something a lot for a while and indulge in it ALL THE TIME. There was the time I ate Corn Pops every night before bed for a month. And then I’d wake up and eat a bagel with strawberry cream cheese. Or that time when S’mores Pop Tarts were my drug of choice. And yall already know I eat rice everyday (yes, really) and my addiction to all things red velvet should be in the DSM-IV.
I’m a picky eater and I like what I like! Don’t judge me!
Every winter, I become obsessed with hot chocolate and drink some every night. My hands down favorite is Swiss Miss French Vanilla. It is everything and everything is it. I love vanilla flavored stuff and it’s so good that I don’t even have to use milk or creamer if I don’t feel like it. I love coming home after a long cold day and putting on my fleece pajamas, sitting on the couch and sipping on my french vanilla hot cocoa. It tastes like goodness and Granny’s hugs.
Naturally, I am ready to start my ritual because it’s colder than a witch’s heart already so I checked my favorite grocery store in Chicago like usual and I didn’t see it on multiple trips there. So I go online to just make it easier on myself and order it and… IT WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!! And then I found out that:
SWISS MISS FRENCH VANILLA HOT COCOA HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED! WAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! *cries in my tea*
But I felt like hope wasn’t lost. Surely, there would still be stores selling it. SURELY. And then I Googled some more and by page 5 of results, every store had put “unavailable.” My heart sunk and I bit my fist bitterly. And then A-HA! I found ONE grocery delivery service that had them. I fist-pumped because I hadn’t given up. I put 5 boxes in the cart and created an account. As I went to checkout, they asked for my address. However, my spirit was dropkicked when they said they don’t deliver to me. They only deliver to a few zip codes in Michigan.
*WALL SLIDES FOR HOPE LOST*
Why do companies discontinue such deliciousness?? Who told Swiss Miss it was ok for them to stop making french vanilla? NO FAIR! Meanwhile, they still make that raggelly marshmallow hot cocoa. Blech! I’m not here for that. (-_-) UGH!
WHAT AM I GON DO NOW FOR HOT CHOCOLATE DELICIOUSNESS? I mean, yes I could get regular but I don’t wanna. BOOOOO!
So everyone has been put on notice. If you EVER see Swiss Miss French Vanilla in a store, buy me ALL the boxes. I mean it. Every box. For real. I’m not playing. Email me and I’ll send you payment for them. This is not a game.
But for real, Swiss Miss. Bring back French Vanilla for us. There’s even a dedicated Facebook fan page for this. We mean business. No justice, no hot chocolate! Please and thanks.
Anyone else love this french vanilla goodness? Annnndddd more importantly, have you seen it anywhere lately? Keep in mind that sometimes, the box isn’t brown, but the color of regular Swiss Miss products.
LET A G KNOW!
P.S. A couple of people have reached out to me that I can get the hot cocoa delivered to them in Michigan and they’ll send to me. You are awesomesauce. I’ma call the place tomorrow to verify that they REALLY got ’em and it ain’t them playing with my emotions. I’m clearly outchea parched. Edit to the P.S.: They don’t have them for real. I bugged them via Facebook. I haz the sads.
P.P.S. I’m so greedy. No, I still haven’t had red velvet fried chicken. I’m slightly salty about it too.
