PRESTON, Wash. — Sparkling Ice and its parent company Talking Rain Beverage Co. were recently recognized in the United Kingdom in the Product of the Year consumer survey. The company won the “no added sugar” drinks category of the annual survey that aims to identify the top CPG products on the market, which this year saw nearly 12,000 U.K households respond.
The company said it expanded its presence in the United Kingdom and Ireland last year to 15,000 stores, hitting shelves in April 2016. The company markets its black raspberry, orange mango, peach nectarine and strawberry kiwi flavors in these markets.
“Since our launch in the U.K. and Ireland this past spring, we have been energized by the excitement surrounding our brand,” Talking Rain Beverage Co. president and CEO Kevin Klock said. “This award is a special honor as it has been voted on by the U.K. consumer, and we are proud to offer a beverage free of added sugar, that delivers the bold flavor, fizz and refreshment that the marketplace demands.”
Sparkling Ice VP PR and community relations Nina Morrison and chief marketing officer Brian Kuz attended the award ceremony at London’s Sheraton Grand on Park Lane. Kantar TNS conducted the research and collated the survey.
