Today’s forecast is cold and rainy. And because the precipitation is rain, instead of snow, it is time to celebrate with hot chocolate. The nearest 7-11 is about a 20-second walk from my building, and you can get ANY SIZE hot chocolate (or coffee, if you’re into that) for $0.99. Obviously, the wisest choice is the extra large — 24 ounces. (Tim and I shared it, so you can’t judge me for consuming all 540 calories.) The best part about 7-11’s drinks is the DIY aspect — you can mix in shots of hazelnut, caramel, vanilla, or Irish crème syrup, plus creamer, cinnamon, mini-marshmallows, and beyond.
