EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Say hello to the latest match made in heaven from ZICO® Beverages LLC: A first-of-its-kind coconut water-based product, ZICO Chilled Premium Coconut Water™ & Juice Blends (ZICO Chilled Juices), which marries pure chilled coconut water with mouthwatering fruit juice. The result? A great tasting hydration option with nearly half the calories of regular fruit drinks.
With five naturally-occurring electrolytes, including as much potassium as a banana, ZICO Chilled Juices offer the hydration benefits of coconut water and the delicious taste of fresh juice—with up to 45 percent fewer calories than regular fruit drinks. And like ZICO Natural Coconut Water, ZICO Chilled Juices have no added flavors or preservatives. In addition, ZICO Chilled Juices are dairy and gluten free and available in three, refreshing flavors:
- ZICO Chilled Orange Juice Blend (60 calories per 8 fl. oz. serving — 45 percent fewer calories than regular orange juice)
- ZICO Chilled Pineapple Mango Orange Juice Blend (60 calories per 8 fl. oz. serving — 33 percent fewer calories than regular fruit drinks)
- ZICO Natural Chilled Coconut Water (45 calories per 8 fl. oz. serving — 50 percent fewer calories than regular fruit drinks)
“ZICO Chilled Juices provide the best of both worlds—all the hydration benefits of coconut water and the taste of refreshing juice, without compromise,” said Lorna Peters, Chief Marketing Officer for ZICO. “In the ongoing pursuit of balanced, healthy living, ZICO Chilled Juices are an easy, delicious way to incorporate conscious choices in your day.”
“I'm already hooked on ZICO Coconut Water, so I can't wait to get into the new ZICO Chilled Juices—they've got no artificial sweeteners, just natural fruit juices with the hydration benefits of coconut water,” said Jessica Alba, ZICO Brand Ambassador. “From breakfast with my kids to a quick pick-me-up on the go, it feels good to know refreshment can be healthy and tasty, too.”
From the moment ZICO Chilled Juices are packaged in Thailand to when it hits the refrigerator aisle at the grocery store, all ingredients have been kept below 40 degrees for a refreshing, “straight-from-the-coconut” drinking experience. Available in 1.5L Tetra Pak paper cartons, ZICO Chilled Juices retail for $7.99. At launch, ZICO Chilled Juices will be available in California (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego), Texas (Austin, Houston, and Dallas), Arizona (Phoenix), Oregon (Portland), Colorado (Denver) and Washington (Seattle). Plans are in the works to extend nationally in the near future.
Over the past decade, ZICO has been known in the explosive coconut water category for its refreshing, premium coconut water. As the latest product in our portfolio, ZICO Chilled Juices offer another smart choice as part of a happy, healthy - and hydrated! - lifestyle.
