Tropicana Products Inc., a division of PepsiCo Inc., developed Tropicana Tropolis, a smooth blend of fruit for children packaged in squeezable pouches. The beverage is a smooth blend of squeezable fruit, a good source of fiber and offers 100 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. Tropolis is available in CherryWorld, GrapeWorld and AppleWorld each of which are packaged in a colorful pouch themed like a fictional universe. Tropicana worked with mothers, children and health experts, including dietitians and pediatricians, to develop the product. Tropolis is available in select markets ranging from $2.49 to $3.49 for each four-pack. Expanded distribution is expected in 2012, the company says.
