MESA, Ariz., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The first hot and cold, ready-to-drink beverage dispensing system will be available at Walmart beginning Oct.19 when Esio Beverage Company debuts its convenient countertop unit along with more than 30 great tasting branded drink choices including chilled juice drinks, lemonade, sports drinks and vitamin fitness waters as well as iced or hot coffees and teas.
Branded beverage partners will be available in patented MultiServe E-Paks™ including Kraft's Country Time Lemonade and Crystal Light varieties featuring Appletini, Peach Tea and Wild Strawberry Energy; Campbell's V8 Splash selections including V8 Splash Berry Blend, Tropical Blend and Mango Peach; Apple & Eve Light Fruit Punch, Apple, Cranberry and Grape juices; Maxwell House Simple Roasts Hazelnut coffee; Diet Brisk Lemon and Raspberry Iced Teas; China Mist teas including Blackberry Jasmine Iced Green Tea and Passionfruit Iced Black Tea; Sqwincher sports drinks featuring Fruit Punch, Grape, Lemon Lime and Orange; and Esio's signature Barista Brothers Premium Coffees and Teas and its Vita-24 Fitness Water. Each MultiServe E-Pak provides approximately 14 8-ounce servings.
The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System will be available in nearly 2,400 Walmart stores for $199 and will include two free E-Paks, a $12 value.
The revolutionary drop'ndrink™ technology embedded in the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System allows users to instantly switch from cold lemonade (no ice needed) to freshly-brewed hot coffee, with no taste crossover and the ability to customize the strength of every beverage.
"The technology in the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is truly a game changer for the industry," said Frank Leonesio, founder and CEO of Esio Beverage Company. "We're excited to empower the consumer with the benefit of enjoying hot and cold beverages at the touch of a button in their home that are convenient, low in sugar and calories, economical and sustainable."
"Walmart is the ideal premier retailer to launch Esio's MultiServe hot and cold beverage system, especially in time for the holidays," said Frank Leonesio, founder and CEO of Esio Beverage Company.
Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System drinks are low in sugar and calories, offering consumers a healthy alternative to traditional sugar-filled, high-calorie beverages.
The magic of the Esio system is its MultiServe technology, allowing the repeated use of its patented MultiServe E-Paks™ using chilled or hot water that's always available. Esio's reusable three-inch-square E-Paks (no refrigeration required) each produce up to 108 ounces of drinks (approximately 14 8-ounce servings) and the system's exclusive patented Strength Selector™ allows consumers to select their exact beverage strength.
What's more, the hassle-free beverage system is family-friendly with a child safety lock and is a proven time saver for today's active adults and families with ice cold and steaming hot drinks available in seconds.
The Esio system, a home and office space saver, is also eco-friendly; each tiny E-Pak eliminates about nine 12-ounce cans or seven 16-ounce bottles that typically take up valuable refrigerator and pantry space before ending up in a landfill. The cost savings are significant too, with drinks from the Esio being more affordable than single-serve convenience beverages purchased at the store.
