The Gourmet Retailer Editors Pick Raspberry Lemonade Water Drops™
Gilbert, Ariz. (October 3, 2015) – In their August 2015 issue, editors of The Gourmet Retailer paid “tribute to 60 of the most original, engaging, and downright fun specialty food items introduced at retail over the past year,” including new SweetLeaf® Raspberry Lemonade Water Drops™. The flavorful, sugar-free, zero-calorie water enhancer was awarded a The Gourmet Retailer’s Editors’ Pick award for taste and convenience.
Magazine staff members, augmented by colleagues from a sister publication, judged hundreds of product entries on innovation, taste/functionality, and value. “Tasters liked the compact size of the unbreakable, squeezable packaging that fits easily into bags or pockets,” as well as the guilt-free, sweet fruit flavor. With zero calories, zero carbs, NO sugars, and NO artificial sweeteners, Water Drops™ make hydration and drinking those eight glasses of water a day deliciously easy.
In stores and trade shows, there is a sharp focus on the next new thing and what is trending. According to The Gourmet Retailer that is “because innovation is the lifeblood of consumer packaged goods companies as they constantly strive to attract new buyers and bolster their connection with existing purchasers of their products.”
With four delicious fruit blends—Peach Mango, Strawberry Kiwi, Raspberry Lemonade, and Lemon Lime—Water Drops are a great-tasting way to stay hydrated all year long. Just squeeze into plain or sparkling water for a delicious drink adults and children alike will want to drink.
Water Drops have also received several awards and recognitions for their great taste and amazing convenience from Progressive Grocer, the World Stevia Organization, and others. They have been a popular new addition to the SweetLeaf family of products, which have earned a total of 19 awards for taste and innovation.
