ICYMI: Itty Bitty News Bites
• Recently Little Hacienda Restaurant in Branson posted about their newest warm-for-the-winter drink, and it sounds so delish! They wrote “Our head chef traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, to learn about chocolate and brought back artisanal Mexican chocolate for you all to try!” Made into hot cocoa, it looks positively dreamy.
• Have you tried Yo Seasonings yet? This honestly super-huge line of flavorful seasoning blends is made in Springfield, sold at C-Street Market and carried at Harter House. New for the holiday season, though, they are taking orders for spice-filled Christmas gift baskets for that foodie on your nice list who loves to cook.
• Are you, like me, always really sad when the Pineapple Whip trailers shut down for the season? It’s like the door is shutting on summertime, right? Good news for you, my friend: You can get pints of three Pineapple Whip flavors in the freezer section at both Springfield Hy-Vee locations now: pineapple, lemon-berry and mango-peach. It’s summer year-round now.
