Advertising Spotlight: ROAR Organic Launches #SodaSucks Comical Video Campaign

 

 

 

 

NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ROAR Organic, a new electrolyte-infused hydration beverage sold at retailers in New York and California, launches #SodaSucks, a comical viral video series aimed to educate consumers on the adverse effects of drinking sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages.

ROAR Organic is a USDA certified organic coconut water-based electrolyte infusion that comes in four great-tasting flavors and is free of additives and harmful ingredients. This alternative to soda and other sugary beverages is entirely gluten-fee, non-GMO, vegan-friendly and was created using no artificial coloring, sweeteners or preservatives.

Researchers from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University have found that the consumption of sugary drinks may lead to an estimated 184,000 adult deaths each year worldwide. According to the study, "Estimated Global, Regional, and National Disease Burdens Related to Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Consumptions in 2010," published in Circulation, a journal that focuses on research on cardiovascular diseases, sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages appear to claim about 25,000 American lives yearly by contributing to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer risks.

"The thought alone scared me," said Roland Nesi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ROAR Beverages. "In one way, so much of this information is common knowledge, in that we all know soda isn't good for us, but to think that one on the most widely available beverages in the world is doing this kind of severe damage and seeing the data first-hand, I knew I needed to do something."

In August of 2016, Nesi and his team began formulating their new product, focusing on bringing this "better-for-you" hydrating beverage to market as a great-tasting alternative to soda.

"Once production began, we wanted to find a unique way to start the conversation with the audience about the product, while embracing the internet and how it's used in 2017," added Chase Ceparano, Chief Marketing Officer of ROAR Beverages.

To do so, ROAR Organic created the video series "#SodaSucks" with Brandon Organzyck, a 20-something year old who is strangely fueled by his hatred of soda. During the short video clip series, Brandon Organzyck explains the reasons why #SodaSucks and shows off his literal destruction of soda in quirky and creative ways.

"We knew it would seem as a bit off-center, but no one likes to be sold to, and now more than ever, we are all looking to be entertained in quick, digestible pieces of content," explains Ceparano. "So why not be creative in the introduction of such an innovative product?"

ROAR Organic is currently available in retailers throughout New York and California, as well as online at Amazon.com.  Brandon Organzyck's viral series, "#SodaSucks," can be seen weekly each Wednesday via #SodaSucks' YouTube, http://bit.ly/Soda-Sucks.

Founded in 2013 in Huntington, New York, ROAR is a bold, healthy, alternative to the sugary, artificial, traditional isotonic beverages available today.

Drink Spotlight: New Ginger DRY Sparkling Cans

 

 

Guess who’s back. Back again. Ginger DRY is back… Tell a friend.

You heard that right. Ginger DRY Sparkling is now available in aluminum cans, and there’s nothing shady about it! Last year, we launched Ginger DRY in seasonal wine-sized bottles, and they were so popular, we decided to bring this flavor to our main line. Our brand new 12 oz. can design makes it especially easy to grab Ginger DRY on-the-go – whether you’re headed to school, to the office, to the kids’ soccer practice, or to adventure outdoors.

DRY’S Founder and CEO, Sharelle Klaus, said, “There’s no doubt that ginger is having a moment in the beverage category. It hits the bull’s-eye on so many current consumer demands, including preferences towards more botanicals, spices, and bold international flavors.”

This flavor is no stranger to the soda world, but Ginger DRY Sparkling is made with just four ingredients and tastes clean and crisp. Per serving, our bubbly ginger has about 1/3 of the sugar and calories of ginger beers and ales. Bonus: it’s Non-GMO Project Verified and made without any artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

Company Spotlight: Garden Party Hard Sodas

 

 

Garden Party Hard Soda was created in 2016 after recognizing the growing trend of ready to drink adult beverages expanding beyond beer and wine. A 2016 Beverage Industry Magazine Innovation of the Year, Garden Party is 100% all natural, 8% alcohol by volume, and comes in two amazing flavors, Ruby and Violet. Garden Party launched November 2016 through Monarch Beverage and is looking for distributors in key markets. Enjoy the softer side of Hard Soda with a sophistiPOP!

 

Our Hard Soda Difference

Fueled largely by millennials and their desire to have an experience that is both grown up and reminiscent of their childhood, the hard soda or flavored malt beverage industry saw 57% growth between 2010 and 2015.

 

An article on vinepair.com on the increasingly popular hard soda industry states, “Keeping with the millennial generation’s craving for all things ‘craft’ and ‘artisanal,’ we’re already beginning to see the emergence of the high-end sector of the hard soda market. Garden Party Botanical Hard Sodas, a startup based in Indianapolis... has branded itself as offering the ‘softer side’ of the hard soda market.

“I think millennials in general have an insatiable drive towards whimsy and irony,” said Erin Edds. “We like quirky, we like interesting, we like the humor in things. We can see the humor in things.”

1_obj-dig-in-can-frame-violet-imageoptim

 

“Like the cocktails that hearkened to earlier medicinal days when unfamiliar herbs provided flavoring for teas and remedies, Garden Party Botanical’s hard sodas utilize ingredients like lavender and hibiscus. These ingredients aren’t typical for flavoring agents in a sugary soda but, according to Erin, the retro aspect of 1600s botany and the degree of playfulness in experimentation with uncommon flavors is the sort of nostalgia that proves attractive to potential millennial consumers.”

Garden Party Botanical is bringing a higher quality, premium aspect to the hard soda market. Our hard sodas are lower in sugar and use all-natural ingredients. While the product is brewed, it is not considered beer and has no beer or malt taste. With 8% alcohol, these flavorful beverages bridge the gap between craft beers and wine.

About the Company
I’ve always had a passion for the culinary world and enjoy making the most out of each part of a meal – the beverage included. So when I had four children, I wasn’t going to let a lack of wine or cocktails stop me from creating a great pairing. Working with some of the Pacific Northwest’s leading chefs, I discovered how to use unique flavor notes to create sparkling beverages that are simple and unexpectedly palate pleasing. In 2005, I launched DRY Soda Company… and the rest is history. I’m thrilled to have turned a personal passion into a product that so many other food lovers are now able to enjoy. Cheers!

Drink Spotlight: Buho Mexican Sodas

 

 

 

"A new generation of sodas for a new generation of consumers!" This is the result of a great trip with friends to Oaxaca and more than a year in development of the product till its perfection. The idea of this project begun in a visit I made from my native country Germany to Mexico.  The trip was organized to the city of Oaxaca with some friends that I met during a university exchange.  After buying cola flavored sodas and energy drinks, to avoid falling asleep while driving back to Mexico City, we crossed the beautiful Sierra Madre and its incomparable nature and thought it was illogic to love nature so much and yet consume artificial drinks.

 

On my way back to Germany, I decided to make the dream of making modern and honest sodas a reality: a combination of exquisite flavor, less calories, natural ingredients, spring water and sweetened with a Mexican organic product  as is the agave nectar of Jalisco in combination with natural stevia.

 

I didn't understand why Mexico being a producing country of delicious and varied fruits, its population must drink artificial drinks with great doses of sugar. It is important to care for the health of those that inhabit this beautiful country.

 

Now in Mexico, I started the materialization of the project. It took awhile to see its crystallization, but you can be sure that we offer you a product of Germany quality with Mexican flavor which has been revised down to the smallest detail so that you can enjoy the authentic Buho flavor with every sip you take - and without having to fill yourself with a calorie bomb!
