Product Launch: Sunday Cats Launches Natural and Organic Take on the Classic Ice Pop




LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer, the classic ice pop gets a fresh and healthy makeover. Los Angeles-based Sunday Cats has reinvented the traditional freezer pop with certified organic and all-natural, easy-to-pronounce ingredients.


Sunday Cats makes its debut with the launch of three mouth-watering flavors, Watermelon, Pineapple, and Strawberry Lemonade. With a mission to disrupt the ice pop category, Sunday Cats has spent months perfecting its take on the classic frozen snack, using real fruit juice and whole food electrolytes.


Fueled by a love of all things refreshing, founder Meghan Flather set out to create an organic and natural version of the ice pop without compromising the flavor, quality, convenience, or price. "I couldn't believe a healthy version of my favorite childhood treat wasn't already on the market," commented Flather, "After some research, I set out to make an affordable version that would honor the nostalgia and playfulness of the original, while also updating the nutritional value for a modern consumer." Certified organic, gluten-free, and vegan, Sunday Cats has no added sugar, artificial colors, GMOs, or preservatives.


Sunday Cats pops are responsibly produced with individual pops packaged in BPA-free plastic and six-pack boxes made from 100% recyclable cardboard. The pops are shelf stable as well, so they can go in and out of the freezer without any problems, making life easier for consumers, distributors, and retailers. In addition, Sunday Cats has aligned with numerous charitable organizations including 1% for the Planet and All Food Things, and will be donating product to Children's Hospital Los Angeles, a perfect collaboration due to the delicious and nutritious ingredients found in the product.


Sunday Cats is currently available for ordering nationwide at www.sundaycats.com and expects to pop up on regional grocery shelves throughout the rest of the year, beginning in Southern California. Individual pops sell for 99 cents, and the six-pack box is $6.29.

Tech Trends: The Pre-Cation



A lot of attention has been given lately to an interesting perk that a few companies in California are now offering to new employees.  We have all heard of a vacation and the stay-vacation, now you can add the Pre-Cation to that list.

So what is a Pre-Cation you ask?  Two companies in California have decided that all new hires should take a 2 week vacation before starting their jobs.  Getting away for a few days and just disconnecting apparently translates into a more energized and refreshed work force.  Since we are only talking about 2 companies doing this I wouldn't exactly call it a trend but the concept is definitely making the headlines.


I suppose there are some advantages and disadvantages to the pre-cation.  If the new hire doesn't work out then you just blew a few thousand dollars for nothing.  While a new hire may feel refreshed to start a new job after a 2 week vacation will that necessarily translate into long term success?  It's doubtful other companies will start jumping on the pre-cation bandwagon due to the prohibitive cost and lack of measurability.  I would imagine there are better ways to motivate new employees but for the moment the Pre-Cation wins the award for creativity.

Product Spotlight: Health-Ade Kombucha Bubbly Probiotic Drink


A bubbly probiotic drink that has been enjoyed for thousands of years to help restore vitality and promote healing.

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are friendly bacteria, enzymes and yeasts that live in your body, helping everyday to digest what you eat, fight off illness, and balance your energy and metabolism. Unfortunately, due to the current state of our food and water, many of us have compromised and depleted this flora, causing chronic fatigue...



Only the finest organic green and black tea is used in our proprietary blend.

Organic, raw, cane sugar for fermentation - this is food for our probiotics.

Distilled water for its classic purity, which avoids the use of ultra-violet rays

Probiotics have been highlighted in the media for their many health benefits.


Why Drink Health-Ade?
Though different brands of kombucha are somewhat prevalent in health food stores today, most of these interpretations have a compromised quality due to efforts in mass production and hastening fermentation. Unfortunately, this has resulted in many products falling short of the real deal, often higher in sugar than ever intended.

Product Review: Fruitlab Organic Hibiscus Liqueur


FRUITLAB liqueurs add depth and body to cocktails by bringing the flavor of whole fruits, flowers and real cane sugar to your glass. These liqueurs are bright and flavorful by design and contain a third less sugar than most.


Its natural red color, floral aroma and tangy finish work perfectly in white-spirit cocktails -- like margaritas and mojitos, Also great with sparkling wine.



1¼ oz CRUSOE organic silver rum
½ oz FRUITLAB organic hibiscus liqueur
3-4 lime wedges, 1 tsp sugar
8 mint leaves, splash soda
Muddle mint, sugar, limes
Add rum, liqueur and shake
Pour into rocks glass, top with soda


Greenbar Collective represents the world's largest portfolio of organic, handcrafted spirits, including BAR KEEP organic bitters, CRUSOE organic rums, FRUITLAB organic liqueurs, IXÁ organic tequila, SLOW HAND organic whiskey, TRU organic gin and TRU organic vodkas.

But that wasn't always the case.

When husband-and-wife team Melkon Khosrovian and Litty Mathew began making spirits in 2004, they used conventional spirits and local, hand-processed produce.

Soon, their unique spirits won many awards. But Melkon and Litty couldn’t take all the credit. They learned their successes also hinged on some silent partners — the farmers who grew their ingredients. Several had moved to organic farming, resulting in more aromatic, flavorful produce...which led to more flavorful, aromatic spirits.

Their minds were made. ORGANICS HELD THE KEY TO BETTER TASTING SPIRITS. Today, Greenbar Collective produces and distributes the world’s biggest portfolio of organic spirits — all made by hand with real ingredients.

The environment also benefits because the company uses lightweight bottles, 100% recycled labels and plants a tree for every bottle sold. Cheers!

Packaging Spotlight: Hepburn Seasonal Beer

Designed by:
Terri Cao

Hepburn is an alcoholic beverage inspired by 1950s housewives with Audrey Hepburn as the muse. Because every female loves to have options, this beer offers four flavors representing the four seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. It celebrates the hard and grueling eight- day work-week every housewife goes through, that remains unoticed. Hepburn gives women a chance to quickly unwind without feeling like they must act like a lady. The slim can makes it convenient to open for a mini-break during a long day. Hepburn reaches style conscious housewives 25 to 40 years old by marketing the product as a three-pack instead of the typical six. The Charles S. Anderson Archive, inspired the silhouette illustrations of women performing housework and enjoying a nice cold Hepburn. Colors relate to the four seasons and are inspired from nostalgic pastel color schemes of the 1950s. The two typefaces, Blanch Caps and Lavenderia Sturdy were both used because of their vintage flair.
