SEATTLE, July 23, 2013
SEATTLE, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As consumers continue to demand real
ingredients in their beverages and seek out all-natural and lower sugar soda
options, DRY Soda is making its unique sodas more accessible to customers by
offering it in Rexam 12oz. SLEEK® cans. DRY Soda also introduces two new
flavors this summer: Apple DRY and Ginger DRY.
DRY Soda's launch of sleek cans and introduction of new flavors means that DRY
customers can enjoy DRY in more places – on the go, poolside, cocktails,
lunches and entertaining at home. In addition to the Apple and Ginger, DRY
will also offer three current flavors in cans: Vanilla Bean, Blood Orange, and
Originally introduced in 12oz. glass bottles, DRY Soda has chosen to expand
into the Rexam SLEEK can because of its durability and portability. DRY Soda
also supports the use of aluminum cans as they are the most sustainable
packaging choice in the world, and are recycled at more than double the rate
of any other beverage package.
In 2005, well before low sugar products were part of the national
conversation, DRY Soda CEO and Founder Sharelle Klaus saw the need for a less
sweet, all-natural soda and created the first soda line with significantly
less sugar and made with just four ingredients. DRY, the better for you soda,
contains one-quarter to one-third of the sugar and calories of traditional
sodas, and is only 45-70 calories per 12oz. bottle/can.
"Ideveloped DRY because I believe in offering a betterlow sugarsoda option
to consumers seekinghealthier alternatives to traditionalsodas and am
thrilled that DRY cans will allow people to enjoy it anywhere, anytime and
offer our customersthe convenience of DRY on the go," said DRY Soda CEO
Sharelle Klaus. "DRY really stands out in the Rexam SLEEK cans andprovides
DRY Soda retailers more opportunities to offer DRY to their customers."
Rich Grimley, president and CEO, Rexam BCNA, says the SLEEK can is the perfect
choice to broaden consumer reach for DRY. "The SLEEK can provides a
differentiation on retail shelves that helps build brands," he said. "Besides
the appeal of the package with colorful graphics that enable brands to attract
attention on retail shelves, beverage cans offer superior recycling, filling,
distribution and display economics that just make good business sense."
DRY Soda cans are available now throughout the United States in traditional
and specialty retail stores, restaurants, cafes and online. The cans will be
sold individually at retailers for $1.29.
