The Coca-Cola Company and Ingrid Hoffmann are coming together to provide
families with simple recipes and fun party ideas to celebrate this Cinco de
Mayo. Inspired by her new book “Latin D’Lite” and Coca-Cola’s wellness
programs, Hoffmann created meal solutions to help families make smarter
choices this holiday.

“With our 126-year history of bringing people together, we know that great
food and a good party bring friends and families even closer,” said Lauventria
Robinson, VP Multicultural Marketing, Coca-Cola North America Group. “With the
help of Ingrid Hoffmann, we’re taking a different approach to Cinco de Mayo
and hope to inspire families to spend time together, and host their very own
Mexican fiesta filled with fun, family-friendly activities.”

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated with parades and street festivals in cities and
towns across the United States. This holiday commemorates Mexican culture and
history; it provides the opportunity for families to both celebrate Mexico’s
rich traditions and start some new ones, too.

“Any excuse is a good excuse to spend time with family and friends – and I
like to do it in a healthy way,” said Hoffmann, host of The Cooking Channel’s
Simply Delicioso. “I am excited to share some of my favorite Mexican recipes
and fun party ideas to help families bring the fiesta home, and enjoy a
delicious meal.”

This year, as part of the effort to provide everyone in the family with an
authentic experience, Coca-Cola, Fanta and Sprite made in Mexico Fiesta
24-packs will be available at participating retailers for a limited time.
These refreshing beverages may be paired with a variety of Mission® Mexican
food products including tortillas, chips, salsas and dip. The beverage and
food bundle offers instant redemption coupons.

The My Coke Rewards® digital platform features party planning tips, cooking
videos, recipes in English and Spanish, and a variety of prizes. Consumers are
encouraged to enter My Coke Rewards codes and Mission UPC codes for a chance
to win daily prizes, including Coke and Mission products for a year.
