No better way to say tis’ the season than to try out the new Splash winter menu. Splash offers a wide menu of drinks, treats, and more making it a perfect stop this holiday season. The splash winter menu offers eight new drink combinations including various sodas, hot chocolate, and even frozen hot chocolate. 

Long time customer and employee junior Aubrey Jaramillo knows all there is to know about everything Splash related. 

“I’ve been a customer at Splash for at least 4 years now and I will never get sick of it,” Jaramillo says. “I have been working at Splash for a year and six months now and I can definitely say it is one of the best soda spots in town.” 

The Splash winter menu’s 8 new limited time drinks.

Another long time customer and employee senior Paige Martinez also has knowledge of the ins and outs of Splash can attest to its greatness. 

“I have been going to Splash for about two years now and I have worked there for about a year and a half,” Martinez says.

The winter menu which is anticipated to be available till sometime around March features a new hot chocolate item which is proving to be a massive success.

“The mudslide has definitely been our most popular. This is mainly because it has hot chocolate which is only seasonal at splash and with the colder weather everyone is looking for something to keep them warm,” Jaramillo says. 

The hot chocolate has also been a big hit to boost the booming soda business. 

Jaramillo says, “I can definitely say that since we added our hot chocolate drink more customers have come in, and even our regulars have come in more often.” 

Not only do the customers love the holiday menu, so do the employees. 

“It’s very fun and festive and there’s fun mixtures like sprite with cranberry and also flavored hot chocolates to keep you warm,” says Martinez. 

While the holiday menu is temporary, even the employees would be ok with parts sticking around. 

“People should try our new menu because it is only for a limited time,” Says Jaramillo. 

 “The more people who try it now will give us more drinks to permanently add to the menu so customers can enjoy them all year long.” 

Another popular menu item doesn’t involve hot chocolate but instead a mix of sprite, blue raspberry, and coconut cream has been a big hit for another year. 

“I think the snowball has also been the most popular because it was the drink of the week last season and was a customer favorite,” Martinez adds. 

Jaramillo also finds the snowball to be a favorite, even to make. 

“My favorite drink to make is the snowball because it always smells so good and it looks so satisfying,” Jaramillo says.

As a major staple favorite, Splash is taking their menu to the next level this winter.
