How to Host a Fabulous Cookie Exchange With the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System "Drinks On Us"


I have discovered the "Most Innovative" kitchen appliance ever invented and I can't wait to tell everyone about it. In fact, I have been telling everyone about it! I am so fortunate that I am able to review fabulous products, but the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is quite literally my most favorite item to ever had the pleasure to review.

I host a cookie exchange party every year with my homeschool moms and I was so happy to bring along my brand new Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System this year! This time of the year I think everyone is baking up a storm in their kitchens. Cookie Exchanges are tons of fun and everyone gets to walk away with a wide variety of different cookies. All the homeschool moms brought six dozen cookies each and we set them out on display. I brought along other snacks to enjoy, as well as the Esio.

The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage Sytem really made the Cookie Exchange Party a huge success.  You simply can not sample 15 different cookies and snacks without a delicious cup of coffee or juice from the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System. The holidays are a time of celebration and indulgence so I have added the recipes of some snacks I made.


Mini Brie Cups


• 1 (10 oz) package frozen puff pasty shells

• 6 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed

• 1/4 cup jelly or jam of your choice (I used my homemade strawberry jam)


1. Preheat oven to 325°. Cut brie into bite-sized cubes.

2. Place the tart shells on an ungreased baking sheet.

Add a piece of Brie to each shell and top with a

dollop of jelly/jam.

3. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage system is now available in 2,400 Walmart stores across the U.S.! The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is a countertop unit that has the ability to dispense a large variety of your favorite hot and cold beverages. Esio's drop'ndrink™ technology allows you to instantly switch from cold lemonade to freshly-brewed hot coffee with no taste crossover. This system provides significant cost savings, with each Esio drink serving being much more affordable (about $.40 per 8-oz. serving) than single-serve bottled beverages that are purchased at a store.

Esio Hot & Cold Beverage Dispenser

The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is always hot, always cold, always on and always ready to serve your favorite name brand drinks. But the Esio isn't just an amazingly high-tech appliance. It's also compact enough to fit on any countertop under your kitchen cabinets. Choose an Esio in the color that best matches your kitchen décor.

Heats & Chills Water

Once you fill your Esio Countertop with water, you have a steady supply of hot and cold drinks at your fingertips all the time. That's because Esio doesn't just have a heating element to create hot water, it has a compressor to refrigerate cold water (just like your refrigerator). Your Esio comes equipped with a ½ gallon hot water tank and a ½ gallon cold water tank, as well as an almost-gallon-sized reservoir to refill the tanks as you make drinks. Compare that to other limited-capacity single-serve brewers that require you to constantly add water, wait for your hot beverage to brew, and, when you want an "iced" drink, make you brew a hot beverage "over ice", which really just waters it down.

Drop'n Drink Technology

The magic of the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is the pump at the end of every Esio beverage E-Pak. Simply drop in your favorite E-Pak, set the patented Strength Selector for the strength you want, and press and hold the blue/cold button or the red/hot button to pour as large or as small a drink as you'd like. The E-Pak automatically dispenses your beverage and mixes it in mid-air with refrigerated water or piping-hot water to make "Your Drink. Your Way. Right Away." You can switch back and forth between E-Paks, and there's never any taste crossover.

Then put your E-Pak away and reuse it until it is empty - it automatically self-seals, so it lasts for up to a year, no refrigeration required.
