LAKEVILLE-MIDDLEBORO, Mass., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ — As 2009 quickly approaches, Americans will begin making New Year’s resolutions, but many will fall off the wagon. According to this year’s survey from FranklinCovey Products ( http://www.franklinplanner.com/ ), a global retailer and the exclusive licensee of consumer products for FranklinCovey Co,, losing weight is the second most popular New Year’s resolution — however, almost a third of all people who make resolutions won’t make it to the end of January! With the launch of its new Sugar-Free Drink Mixes, Ocean Spray(R) makes it easier to keep diet resolutions by offering nutritious, deliciously flavored drink alternatives that consumers can feel good about.
Ocean Spray’s(R) Sugar-Free Drink Mixes contain only five little calories per serving with the added benefit of 100 percent vitamin C. With the new Sugar-Free Drink Mixes, it’s simple to stay hydrated and enjoy a sweet and healthy beverage without the calories or sugar of a traditional soft drink.
The refreshingly crisp taste of Ocean Spray(R) Sugar-Free Drink Mixes is available in six real-fruit flavors — Cranberry Grape, White Cranberry Peach, Cranberry Lemonade, Cranberry Pomegranate, Cranberry and Ruby Red. The Sugar-Free Drink Mixes can be found nationally in drink mix aisles across the country in On-the-Go packages containing 10 single-serve sticks for a suggested retail price of $2.99 and 12-quart multi-serve canisters for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
Ocean Spray also offers a variety of diet-friendly products to help maintain healthy nutrition and a balanced lifestyle. Light juice drinks such as Light Cranberry Juice Cocktail and Light Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink offer wholesome refreshment, but with 2/3 fewer calories and sugar than Ocean Spray’s regular juice drinks. Additionally, consumers can give their taste buds a break from diet soda and replace it with Diet Cranberry or Diet Cranberry Grape, which have only five little calories and are a good source of Vitamin C. And Craisins(R) Sweetened Dried Cranberries 100-Calorie Packs are the perfect size for portion controlled on-the-go snacking.
