ATLANTA, May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SORBOS and Green Nature Marketing are joining with Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC, to feature SORBOS edible straws in a second limited-time offer, beginning today at participating locations and while supplies last.
The LTO features a lime-flavored straw paired with the fan-favorite Watermelon Mojito® Smoothie and the new Mango Berry Cosmo Smoothie. Tropical Smoothie Cafe previously featured SORBOS strawberry-flavored edible straws in the brand's holiday cranberry smoothie LTO.
"SORBOS straws were one of several initiatives we took in 2020 to show our commitment to an innovative, fun guest experience, and it paid off through a successful LTO," said Karen Anderson, Vice President of Marketing Strategy at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC. "We feel confident these lime-flavored straws will bring the same success in this summertime promotion."
"With sustainability becoming increasingly popular across the foodservice industry, standard straw alternatives such as SORBOS flavored edible straws are a welcome solution," explained Nick Dionne, Vice President of Green Nature Marketing. "Additionally, SORBOS is emerging as a great alternative to paper straws, with the ability to stay rigid for up to 40 minutes in cold and frozen drinks, while adding to the experience of the beverage in a way that paper cannot."
