Students get creative at the UMC Nite Bite
Available for all CU Students, the UMC is promoting numerous programs with free food, educational lectures and several contests every Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m.
On Wednesday, March 2, Baby Doe’s Coffee & Bakery and Alfred Packard Grill teamed up to put on a unique event about chocolate. Educating students on the history and benefits of chocolate, each attendee was allowed to make their dream cup of hot cocoa. Student Manager Rian Jeffers said they imported all the chocolate from West Africa.
CU Student Julia Walden said, “I just like the new experiences and I wouldn’t have this opportunity anywhere else so I like to just come to anything that I see is going on.” Very popular and creative, one program in particular stood out to the CU community.
Getting creative with white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, students mixed the chocolate flavors with hot milk. Some brave hot cocoa consumers even added a shot of vanilla to their cup or toped it off with a spoon full of cayenne pepper!
CU Student Sydney Tanner said, "It's actually really good. I got accidently a lot of cayenne pepper but it's a good kicker."
Educating students on the benefits of chocolate was exactly what the UMC Nite Bite intended to do. The UMC Food Service Manager Marc Rich said, “The Nite Bite programs are here to give something back to the student community. In this case, we wanted to educate our students on one of our more popular, products being hot chocolate.”
Next Wednesday, March 16 Subway is sponsoring a meatball sub-eating contest. Six contestants will participate in the showdown and only three will win. To see a full list of upcoming events or to read about previous events visit: http://umc.colorado.edu/nitebite/
