Scooter's Coffee will be on one local grocery store's shelves Tuesday and you'll soon find their latest offering, Scooter's Chocolate Espresso Meltaways, at all Scooter's locations.

Various Scooter's bagged whole bean and ground coffees will be available at Hy-Vee's 132nd Street and West Dodge Road location. Heidi Bedlan, Scooter's national accounts manager, said flavors will include the Omaha-based coffee chain's whole bean and ground signature Scooter's and Ethiopian blends. The chain's ground Scooter Doodle cinnamon caramel and hazelnut blends will also be available, along with its whole-bean Husker and Big Red varieties.

You'll also be able to find Scooter's holiday coffee gift baskets at the store, many of which include the new line of chocolates.

Scooter's and Bakers Candies have forged a partnership to create Scooter's Chocolate Espresso Meltaways. The chocolates, which are infused with Scooter's espresso, will be sold at all Scooter's locations, Walgreens, Bakers Candies retail stores and bigredcoffee.com.

“We are thrilled to be part of a historic partnership between two prestigious Nebraska brands,” said Todd Baker, general manager of Bakers Candies.
Scooter's was founded in 1998 in Bellevue and Bakers was founded in Greenwood in 1987.
