Below, we’ll describe a few words used commonly by Max Brenner (i.e. Hug Mug) and explain their origin.</p> <p><span id="more-43"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Hug Mug:</b> The <a href="http://maxbrenner.com/chocolate-experience/hot-chocolate" target="_blank">Hug Mug</a> is a cocoa bean-shaped mug designed specifically for the hot drinking ceremony! Place hands on both sides of the mug (giving it a hug), breathe in the rich aroma of the drink and sip through the narrow lip.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-91" alt="hugmug-600x425" src="http://maxbrenner.com/wp-blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/hugmug-600x425.jpg" width="600" height="425" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Alice Cup:</b> Named after the children’s fairytale <i>Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland</i>, the <a href="http://maxbrenner.com/chocolate-experience/chocolate-milkshake" target="_blank">Alice Cup</a> is the ultimate way to drink icy choctails.

You might just see the Cheshire Cat grinning up at you.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-93" alt="alice-600x425" src="http://maxbrenner.com/wp-blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/alice-600x425.jpg" width="600" height="425" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Suckao:</b> The <a href="http://maxbrenner.com/chocolate-experience/chocolate-drink" target="_blank">Suckao</a> allows you to prepare and drink a pure shot of hot chocolate. Its name is derived from two words: “Suck” – in this case, to pull thick hot chocolate through the metal drinking straw and “Kakao” – Spanish for “cocoa beans” , the raw material from which the drink is made. Scoop solid chocolate chunks into the Suckao’s warm milk and stir. Then, drink up!</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-95" alt="suckao-600x425" src="http://maxbrenner.com/wp-blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/suckao-600x425.jpg" width="600" height="425" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Kangaroo Cup</b>: Designed to honor the close relationship between chocolate and coffee, the <a href="http://maxbrenner.com/chocolate-experience/cappuccino-cup" target="_blank">Kangaroo Cup</a> is a cappuccino cup with a small pouch (hence the name) that holds smalls pieces of solid chocolate. Savor the mixture of melting chocolate and hot espresso with every sip.</p> <p><i>Fun Fact: </i>The Kangaroo Cup comes with a Mix/Lick Spoon so you can enjoy every bit of leftover chocolate from inside the pouch.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-97" alt="k-cup-600x425" src="http://maxbrenner.com/wp-blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/k-cup-600x425.jpg" width="600" height="425" /></p>
