Lake Success, NY — Legendary golfer Arnold Palmer made the combination of half tea and half lemonade famous. Palmer later partnered with AriZona Beverages to make it available in several ready-to-drink packages. Now the duo has teamed-up again to create a twist on the classic drink by adding a new flavor to the line: the Arnold Palmer Pomegranate Half and Half Lite.
The “Palmergranate” is a combination of pomegranate juice, black tea and lemonade. Like the original Arnold Palmer Half & Half Lite, this new pomegranate version has only 50 calories per 8-ounce serving and is made with the sweetener Splenda. Available in 20-ounce amber PET bottles to protect the tea within, the top of the package is shaped into a golf ball as a tribute to the sport.
“The overwhelming response to the original product made it a natural next step for us to create the new Arnold Palmer Pomegranate Half & Half,” said Don Vultaggio, Chairman of AriZona Beverages. “Our partnership with Mr. Palmer has been a great success, and we are thrilled to be working with Arnold Palmer Enterprises again.”
Arnold Palmer Pomegranate Half & Half Lite is being distributed nationally and will be available at a suggested retail of $1.39 – $1.69 per bottle starting this fall.
