With all the bad news swirling around, how about a nice cup of hot cocoa? Hot cocoa from Ghirardelli will soon be available onboard in all cabins on United Airlines.
United Adds Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa Onboard
Long a staple in United Clubs, United Airlines will be adding powdered hot cocoa onboard from Ghirardelli starting next month.
Hot cocoa will be available from December through February. If you want it, be sure to ask early as United will only board limited quantities. Narrowbody aircraft will have five packets in economy class and five packets in first class while widebody aircraft will have 10 in economy class and 10 in premium cabins (including premium economy “Premium Plus” and business class “Polaris”).
Flight attendants will not make the drink for you. Instead, you’ll be offered a cup of hot water and a separate blue plastic cup with the hot chocolate packet and a spoon or stir stick. Hint: this tastes better with milk. It never hurts to ask!
Hot cocoa is good substitute for coffee later in the day if I am looking for a warm drink and I’ve enjoyed Ghirardelli over the years in United Clubs. I recommend you bring your own “real” cup or mug to enjoy it, but maybe I’m just being a bit too picky.
Do you like hot cocoa? Will you order some on United during the winter season?
