Conagra Brands’ Swiss Miss has launched a line of beverages combining cocoa and coffee flavours.

Made using high-quality imported cocoa and espresso coffee, the new Swiss Miss Café Blends brand features Caramel Macchiato and Mocha. These variants are available in packages of six pre-portioned servings.

Conagra Sweet Treats senior brand manager Erik Sword said: “We’re happy to introduce a new Swiss Miss cocoa that provides the perfect way to get through the afternoon slump.

“We know people are looking for an afternoon pick-me-up and cocoa is a key part of afternoon snacking. With Swiss Miss Café Blends, we now offer a hot cocoa option that provides a boost without too much caffeine.”
