“Seeing Red” is Chocolatly Good!

NEW MENU ITEMS are always exciting for us at CUPPA. We enjoy bringing new flavors and textures to your palette, so we want to take a moment to introduce two of our newest items to you. Then you will understand how “Seeing Red” is Chocolatly Good!

Many of you have already visited CUPPA to try our new Southern Velvet Frappe. It tastes incredibly like a piece of Red Velvet Cake. The chocolaty goodness of Big Train’s decadent red chocolate cake gourmet beverage, with hints of cream cheese, delights the senses and delivers an impressive indulgence to a great menu. Our staff often competes with one another to see who can create the most perfect looking and perfect tasting Southern Velvet Frappe. One of our employees, Courtney, gives two thumbs up to this delicious frozen creation!

Our other new menu item is a mouthwatering Red Velvet Cake! If you didn’t know, Red Velvet Cake is actually a chocolate cake!
The red color of the cake comes from either red food coloring or beetroot. It is usually a layered cake, topped with a cream cheese or buttercream frosting. The reddish-brown color of the cake originally was from a reaction of the cocoa powder with an acidic ingredient such as buttermilk, but most modern cooks rely on food coloring to give the Red Velvet Cake its distinctive hue.

Stop by CUPPA today and indulge your sweet tooth with the Southern Velvet Frappe or a slice of Red Velvet Cake. Or if you think you can handle it… try both! 

Drink Pink to Fund Breast Cancer Research!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month of October, CUPPA is donating a part of the sales from their Dr. Smoothie Strawberry Smoothies to help fund Breast Cancer Research.

Our smoothies from Dr. Smoothie are nutritious and delicious! Dr. Smoothie Smoothies are 100% real fruit, delivering over 5 servings of fruit per 20 oz. beverage. The smoothies are 100% natural, fat free and lactose free. They feature no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are enriched with vitamins and minerals, for your good health.

We didn’t just pick our Strawberry Smoothie for this promotion because it’s pink. Strawberries are packed with nutritional value for you! Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of other vitamins and minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that strawberry extract can reduce age-related decline in cognitive functions. One 20 oz. serving is an excellent source of vitamin B3, B6, C and folate and a good source of vitamin A, E and selenium. Add an extra protein shot for an even more powerful fitness punch!

Come by CUPPA before the month is over, drink a Strawberry Smoothie and do your part to help fund Breast Cancer Research. We promise you that helping others has never tasted so good!

This isn’t your Grandma’s Ice Cream Soda… It’s Better!

I remember the days of spinning on stools at the downtown soda fountain. When I ordered a Cherry Coke, they actually ADDED CHERRY SYRUP to a regular Coca Cola. Flavored Sodas were not as common as they are now and few people ever imagined any kind of ice cream float other than a root beer float. But what if you could create your own flavor of soda? Then what if you could turn that soda into an awesome ice cream float? Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it?

CUPPA’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Sodas are exactly what you want! First, create your own flavored soda. We have 15 Torani syrups to enjoy alone, or combine syrups for any unique flavor sensation. Your syrup choices are added to Carbonated Soda Water to create your personal flavored soda. Then choose between vanilla, chocolate or strawberry ice cream, or even rainbow sherbert! Top it all with whipped cream and a cherry and you’ve created your own signature ice cream soda!

The beauty featured in this photo is a Red Raspberry and Peach syrup combination with Vanilla Ice Cream. I can tell you from personal experience… it is delicious! The mastermind behind this particular drink was Kate, CUPPA’s master mixologist; she loves to experiment with different flavors. Be sure to ask for her when you come into CUPPA to create your masterpiece. Then call your grandma and let her know what she is missing!
