Review: BAWLS Guarana Ginger

Founded in 1996, BAWLS Guarana has one of the longest tenures of any brand in the energy category. And it has more or less stayed its course rather than chasing the trends that the rest of the category has. As such, BAWLS new Ginger variety follows in the footsteps of its other products.

Review: Zevia Sparkling Water is a Logical and Timely Line Extension

While Zevia has been innovating in the CSD category, there’s another category that has been exploding: flavored sparkling water. That said, Zevia’s move into the space seems like a good extension given its credibility as a zero-calorie natural player and broad awareness of its brand.
