SEATTLE, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sparkling ICE®, part of the TalkingRain® portfolio of beverages, is proud to announce the expansion of the fast-growing brand with a new great tasting, zero calorie Lemonade product line. Raspberry Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade and Lemonade with Tea are a complement to the Classic Lemonade flavor successfully launched in 2012.
A sparkling twist on a summertime favorite, the Sparkling ICE Lemonades offer consumers a bold new take on a popular summertime drink. Seeing an opportunity to meet consumer desires for sugar-free, full-flavored sparkling beverages, Sparkling ICE dedicated extensive time and resources to consumer research and product development for the expanded lemonade varieties, and has been extremely pleased with the positive consumer feedback thus far in test markets leading up to the national launch.
