Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I listened to an audiobook–Deliver Us from Normal–and one sentence from a very long book hung in my mind for days.
“Mom made us hot cocoa–with salt.”
Boy, did that bring back memories.
As a treat on cold winter nights, my mother would take out the Hershey cocoa powder and make a pot full of steaming hot chocolate.
In the days before Swiss Miss powder or Quik, Hershey’s cocoa was a staple in our home.
I’d forgotten how good it was but that one sentence brought it all back.
