BOCA RATON, Fla. — Celsius Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “Celsius”) (Nasdaq: CELH), maker of the proven, leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS, today announced the Company has introduced two new flavors to the brand’s sku lineup, both packaged in convenient on-the-go powdered sticks.

CELSIUS brings a differentiated powdered stick product offering to the fitness drink category, one capable of accelerating metabolism, burning calories and fat, and providing healthy energy, especially when combined with moderate activity.
CELSIUS brand’s introduction of new flavors in their increasingly popular powdered stick packets has been long awaited by loyal consumers. These new powdered sticks add Coconut and Cranberry Lemon flavors to the existing two powdered skus, Orange and Berry. They will be available on e-commerce retailer sites and traditional retail partner websites, as well as on traditional grocery store shelves in the HBC or pharmacy departments. The Company has introduced merchandising elements including racks to make convenient countertop merchandising available for fitness clubs and other retailers gaining additional points of availability.

These two new products add to the now twenty-five combined CELSIUS and CELSIUS HEAT skus selling today in specific market segments. CELSIUS’ on-the-go powdered sticks have the same clinically proven formula as their ready-to-drink can counterparts. “The on-the-go powdered sticks allow consumers to take CELSIUS® brand’s proven benefits wherever they go, in a re-sealable bottle or container of their choice, creating a portability for the brand, not available once a can is opened,” touted Vanessa Walker, EVP Marketing and Innovation. “The latest two flavors in the line were chosen strategically – Coconut has transcended the coconut water category, as a trendy favorite with millennials and health conscious consumers, while Cranberry Lemon is a longstanding best-selling flavor amongst makers of on-the-go powders.”
