“This is actually the return of hot cocoa," In-N-Out President Lynsi Snyder said in a statement. "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. For a certain generation, hot cocoa is an In-N-Out classic, and we hope it will be a favorite of a new generation.”
The cold-weather comfort will be served year-round at all locations (which, unfortunately, doesn't include the snow-covered East Coast).
