Hiball Announces Distribution Of Sparkling Energy Juice Drinks At Fred Meyer

Hiball Inc., a true pioneer in the energy drink category, is pleased to announce the distribution of four flavors of Hiball Sparkling Energy Juice drinks to all 130 Fred Meyer stores. Hiball Sparkling Energy Juice drinks are now available chain-wide in the Nutrition Center at Fred Meyer. The flavors include Wild Berry, Cranberry Apple, Orange and Lemon Lime.

Hiball Sparkling Energy Juice drinks contain only 16 grams of sugar and 70 calories per ten-ounce bottle. They will join Hiball’s flagship line of Sparkling Energy Waters in Fred Meyer stores throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska. Hiball Sparkling Energy Waters are the only energy drinks on the planet that are made without sugar or artificial sweeteners of any kind and contain only ten calories per ten-ounce bottle. Hiball’s entire line of energy-enhanced beverages is completely free of preservatives and made with purified sparkling water, a proprietary blend of taurine, guarana, ginseng, b-vitamins and natural caffeine.

“We are excited that Fred Meyer now has both Hiball product lines”, explains Todd Berardi, Hiball’s Founder and President. “Their early support for our Sparkling Energy Water line has helped Hiball to develop a very passionate fan base in the Pacific Northwest. Now with the addition of our lightly-sweetened Sparkling Energy Juice drinks, Fred Meyer shoppers will be able to enjoy the good energy of a Hiball, with a touch of sweetness and flavor, thanks to the addition of organic sugar and all-natural juice.”

All Hiball products are produced in the USA and packaged in recyclable glass bottles. Nutritional information on Hiball’s healthy and innovative line of energy drinks is available online at www.hiballenergy.com.
