But as far as actually adding items, the burger chain isn't exactly one to shake up the board.

The Southern California burger institution - with a menu that has remained relatively unchanged since it was founded in Baldwin Park in 1948 - is selling an 8-ounce cup of hot chocolate. Huntington Beach and Orange stores started offering the product about two weeks ago, employees told the publication.

It wasn't clear if the item was now offered at all In-N-Out locations yet. It also comes topped with mini-marshmallows, though you can get that on the side if you like dipping them in yourself.

Hot cocoa appeared on the In-N-Out menu in the early days of the restaurant's founding. Hot cocoa was made available systemwide at the beginning of the year, the Irvine, Calif. -based quick-service operator said.

She said the company sources cocoa powder from Ghirardelli Chocolate Company to make the hot chocolate.

Hot cocoa hasn't gained much attention on menus lately, with most hot beverage innovation happening in the coffee and tea categories.

In-N-Out restaurant fans are feeling warm all over, thanks to a new addition to the menu: hot cocoa! Hot cocoa was served at In-N-Out in the 1950's before being discontinued for unknown reasons. By comparison, McDonald's sells a 12-ounce hot chocolate made with milk for $2.

Last month, the chain announced plans to add up to 50 locations in Colorado in the coming year.
