(NASDAQ:SODA), the world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of home carbonation systems, and EBOOST, a leading manufacturer and distributor of natural energy drinks and supplements, today announced a strategic agreement to license EBOOST flavors and proprietary energy blends exclusively for use with SodaStream home soda makers.
“Energy drinks are a fast-growing sector in beverages, and we are excited to offer a more natural option by adding EBOOST flavors to our portfolio,” stated Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream. “Consumers turn to SodaStream for smarter, better-for-you alternatives to packaged soda, and we look forward to attracting new users as we expand deeper into specialty flavor choices”

The initial flavors will be Orange and Super-Berry (Acai Pomegranate), which will be available during the second half of 2013. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
