Dry Sparkling craft soda adds watermelon flavor to its line
SEATTLE — Craft soda brand Dry Sparkling is expanding its offerings in time for summer. The company announced Thursday the addition of its watermelon flavor. The new flavor contains 50 calories and 12 g of sugar per 12-oz. serving, and is made with four ingredients and a small amount of cane sugar, Dry Sparkling said.
“Last summer we launched Watermelon DRY Sparkling as a seasonal offering. The goal was to celebrate this nostalgic summer fruit and perfectly capture its juicy essence in a beautiful package,” Dry Sparkling founder and CEO Sharelle Klaus said. “Watermelon DRY was monumentally successful – it sold through quickly and our consumers and retailers were very vocal about their affinity for this flavor. We’re thrilled to now offer Watermelon DRY Sparkling to our fans year-round.”
The new variety, like the rest of Dry Sparkling’s drinks, is Non-GMO Project Verified, caffeine- and gluten-free, as well as OU certified kosher. The watermelon flavor will be rolling out nationwide, including such retailers as Costco’s Midwest and San Diego markets, Kroger, Lolli & Pops and Bartell Drugs, alongside various other regional chains. The four-pack carries a suggested retail price of $6.99
