Coca-Cola North America and Belgian chocolate producer Godiva Chocolatier are launching a line of premium luxury beverages called Godiva Belgian Blends.

The new Godiva Belgian Blends are described as "a revitalising experience, more decadent than just plain coffee".

The beverages come in three flavours, Dark Chocolate Mocha, Milk Chocolate Mocha and French Vanilla Latte, and will be packaged in 9.5 fl. oz. glass bottles, available as singles or in packs of four. The drinks are to be sold in convenience stores, supermarkets and other retailers.

There will be a phased launch, beginning on 31 July, and an advertising campaign is being created by the Leo Burnett agency in Chicago.

"This is a great opportunity for us to extend our strong portfolio of licensed products by combining the world's leading premium chocolate brand with the beverage marketing expertise and distribution capabilities of Coca- Cola North America," said Jim Goldman, president of Godiva Chocolatier Worldwide.

Don Knauss, president and chief operating officer of Coca-Cola North America, added: "Collaborating with Godiva on a beverage line like this is a great opportunity for Coca-Cola North America, and builds upon the reputation of both companies for high quality, consumer-preferred products."
