FREEPORT, Ill. — Consumers now have an intriguing new way to “chill” after a long, frenzied day. Vacay is an all-natural water enhancer with ingredients known to “relieve stress and anxiety, ease tension and calm the mind.” It combines the ever-popular flavors of iced tea and lemonade in a conveniently portable supplement that consumers simply add to their water.
Launched in summer 2014, Vacay offers a much-needed alternative to the energy drinks and intensely caffeinated coffee drinks that power most Americans through their day. Choosing the product’s flavor profile was relatively easy: lemonade and iced tea have broad appeal as the two most-consumed non-alcoholic drinks on the market.
Vacay is ideal for every source and symptom of stress – job stress, travel worries, trouble sleeping or just general anxiety. The all-natural supplement can also be the perfect addition to an already relaxing day. The resealable pouch is small enough to slip in a pocket or purse and take anywhere, whether that’s the beach or the office. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Vacay is that anyone can market their products online to friends or family for a commission or to receive discounts on their own purchases.
L-theanine, derived from tealeaves, is one of Vacay’s key active ingredients, along with chamomile and passionflower. Each ingredient has long been recognized for its soothing properties. Vacay contains stevia for sweetening, while natural lemonade flavoring gives the water enhancer just the right amount of tartness, but with no aftertaste. All ingredients are sourced in the USA and independently tested for quality and consistency.
Vacay is available in single packs and offers discounts on multi-pack purchases, with each pack containing 10 servings allowing customization of your drink based on desired taste/effect. Looking ahead to 2015, the makers of Vacay plan to introduce more flavors of the all-natural water enhancer, along with a line of products specially made for restaurants. The ambitious goals for next year also include expansion into the hotel and cruise industries.
Vacay was created for people who love to chill. It’s no mystery that just as many people like to chill compared to those that like to consume energy drinks. In our eyes, there wasn’t a single relaxation beverage product on the market that had exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a product that tasted sweet and was all-natural with no harmful preservatives, inexpensive with multiple servings in 1 package, and small enough that we could carry it in our pocket for whenever we needed to chill. Since many people use the phrase “I need a Vacay” when they are stressed out, we decided this was the perfect name for our beverage mixer. Now people can #drinkvacay whenever they need to get away.
