Charles Sanna, Inventor of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, Dies

The inventor of the iconic Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix, Charles Sanna, died last month at the age of 101. The mix was originally formulated as a coffee creamer for soldiers in the Korean War. After the war, Sanna was motivated to find a use for the surplus and voila – Swiss Miss was the answer.
