BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The carbonated crusaders behind Q Tonic, Q Ginger, and Q Kola will be debuting three new sparkling drinks at Expo West: Q Lemon, Q Grapefruit, and Q Orange. Like with our other superior sodas, all three new flavors are vastly different the citrus sodas made by the big soda companies. That’s because we make them differently. First, we use real fruit:
• Real lemons from Italy and Argentina for real tartness in Q Lemon
• Real Florida pink grapefruit for a fresh, bitter, and tart taste in Q Grapefruit
• A blend of three different real oranges – Peras from Brazil, Valencias from Florida, and Tangerines from Mexico for a crisp, yet complex taste in Q Orange.
And then we only lightly sweeten them with organic cane sugar, not the loads of sugar that other soda companies use. Q Drinks’ citrus line will be directly taking on San Pellegrino’s Limonata line, but with twice the flavor and half the sugar:
Product Calories per 8oz Sweetener per 8oz
San Pellegrino Limonata 108 24g sugar
Q Lemon 50 13g Organic Cane Sugar
San Pellegrino Aranciata 100 23g Sugar
Q Orange 55 14g Organic Cane Sugar
San Pellegrino Pompelo 108 25g Sugar
Q Grapefruit 50 13g Organic Cane Sugar
Jordan Silbert, founder of Q Drinks, explains: “From the day I introduced Q Tonic, people asked me to make other sodas as special as my tonic water. And I have always loved lemons, grapefruits, and oranges. So I’m really excited that after 30+ iterations, our three new citrus flavors actually taste like lemons, grapefruits, and oranges, not yellow, pink, or orange sugar water. I love them. And I think everyone else will too.”
Q Lemon, Q Orange, and Q Grapefruit are launching in April at Whole Foods nationwide and will available at America’s other leading groceries and restaurants soon after. All three flavors come in a beautiful glass bottle in two different sizes: 8oz and 750ml.
