WATERBURY, Vt.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In celebration of National Hot Cocoa Day on December 13th, Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. and Swiss Miss® are introducing two new delectable varieties of Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pods to enjoy this season. With the official start to winter just a few weeks away, what better way to celebrate National Hot Cocoa Day then to treat yourself to a delicious chocolaty beverage?

New limited edition Swiss Miss® Peppermint Hot Cocoa mix K-Cup® pods, deliver a refreshing flavor twist with a cool blend of peppermint and creamy chocolate. For those interested in the same great taste of original Swiss Miss® cocoa with less calories and sugar, try Swiss Miss® Sensible Sweets Light Hot Cocoa mix K-Cup® Pods. These new flavors join the classic Swiss Miss® Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa mix K-Cup® pods that deliver the rich taste and creamy texture everyone remembers enjoying as a child now through the push of a button on your Keurig® brewer.

First introduced in grocery stores in 1959, Swiss Miss has a rich history as the “original” hot cocoa. Swiss Miss hot cocoa is made with care in a real dairy where fresh milk from local farms is delivered daily, dried, and blended with premium, imported cocoa. Keurig has been delivering this same warmth and comfort in a K-Cup® pod format to consumers since this first Swiss Miss K-Cup® pod was introduced in 2011.

Both Swiss Miss® Peppermint Hot Cocoa and Swiss Miss® Sensible Sweets Light Hot Cocoa 16-count K-Cup® pods for the Keurig® brewing system will be available in limited supply at select retail stores and online through www.Keurig.com. A 16-count box of each variety will retail for SRP $11.99, online and in-store. Swiss Miss® Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa is available in a 24-count box online and in select stores for SRP $14.99.
