LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., June 4, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Being a Super Hero is not easy, as it takes a lot of energy and stamina…much like getting through a regular day for the rest of us. So, White Coffee Corporation is excited to announce its latest major collaboration with Marvel Entertainment, creating single-serve Marvel Comics Coffee and Marvel's Avengers Hot Chocolate options. Now adult fans can tackle his or her first valiant act of the day with a shot of great coffee, and fans of all ages can enjoy some hot chocolate at any time of day.
"We are so excited to feature Marvel's characters on our coffee and hot chocolate collections," says Jonathan White, Executive Vice President of White Coffee Corporation. "Our consumers are huge Marvel fans. These iconic figures – Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and the rest of the Avengers – plus Spider-Man, have legacies that span multiple generations." Coincidently, White Coffee Corporation, just like Marvel, traced their origin to the same calendar year -- 1939.

The suggested retail price is $6.99.
Marvel's Avengers Hot Chocolate highlights the most powerful Super Hero team in the world on its packaging. The hot chocolate is fat-free, with only 20 calories per serving and comes in 12 single serve cups per box with a suggested retail price of $7.99.
