Fannie May Introduces Coffee and Hot Chocolate in Classic Candy Flavors; Perfect for Holiday Gift Giving and Entertaining, New Flavors Provide Festive Flair for Celebrations of the Season.

CHICAGO -- Now, chocolate fans can have their chocolate, and drink it too, thanks to Fannie May(R).

The innovative coffee was blended exclusively for Fannie May by Chicago's award-winning coffee roaster, Intelligentsia, and is made with high-quality, Arabica beans to produce a mild, but full-bodied aromatic coffee.

"We've added the candy flavor to enhance the coffee tasting experience," said Johnna Purcell, marketing communications manager for Fannie May. "It's an exciting departure from a traditional brew, we believe the taste buds of coffee lovers will be pleased to find the flavors of their favorite Fannie May chocolates in an exquisite, rich coffee."
 Coffee is available in the popular Fannie May flavors of:
 -- Pixie(R), featuring pecans, buttery caramel and milk chocolate
 -- Mint Meltaway(R), smooth mint and milk chocolate
 -- Trinidad(R), a combination of toasted coconut and rich smooth chocolate

A traditional, non-flavored Cafe Blend is also available. Fannie May coffees are sold ground (priced at $9.95 per 12 ounce bag).

Classic candy flavors also inspired Fannie May's hot chocolate offerings, which include: Pixie(R), Mint Meltaway(R), Creamy Chocolate and Double Chocolate. Each 12 ounce can of hot chocolate ($4.95), is perfect for gift giving or self-indulgence.

Additionally, Fannie May offers a variety of traditional boxed chocolates and assortments, elegant gift towers (starting at $9.95), nut assortments, holiday tins and ceramic holiday giftware.
