4. Young Grinch Minty Hot Chocolate — IHOP

We’re not done with the Grinch-inspired holiday menu from IHOP just yet.

This menu item is for the kiddos in your tribe, as hot chocolate is a holiday favorite among the younger set. So, why not take them to IHOP and reward their good behavior for the year with Young Grinch Minty Hot Chocolate, which has a mint syrup flavor and is topped with green whipped topping and red candy hearts?

That, to me, is a pretty solid reward. It will get the kids particularly amped to be good while wading through the crowds this holiday season. You know another person that would benefit from having this drink as a reward? Dads. Why? Because they don’t wanna be in these crowds either, but will suffer through them just for the family and this hot chocolate.

Is it sad that it has to be like that? I guess, depending on which side of the shopping coin you land; but, it doesn’t hurt throwing a treat out there for braving the crowds and the cold.

This drink will excite your kiddos, both with its look and its taste; and it wouldn’t really surprise me if adults get a kick out of this drink as well.
