One of the reasons In-N-Out has achieved national burger chain dominance is due to its simple, unchanging menu, which has been more or less the same – secret menu and all – for at least 15 years. But now, just in time for unearthly cold weather throughout most of the United States, they’re adding a new item: In-N-Out Hot Cocoa. Of course, longtime (and I do mean longtime) customers realize that it’s more accurate to say that the piping hot beverage is returning to the In-N-Out menu, as per the chain’s president Lynsi Snyder:
“This is actually the return of hot cocoa … My grandparents, Harry and Esther Snyder, served it for many years beginning in the ’50s. I’m not sure how it fell off the menu but it’s part of our culture and something special for kids, and I’m happy that we’re bringing it back.”
You can reportedly find In-N-Out Hot Cocoa at your local In-N-Out on a permanent basis, and if you’re under the age of 12 you can get a free cup whenever it rains.
