The Coca-Cola Co. launched Minute Maid Light Pink Lemonade, which contains one-third fewer calories than competing low-calorie lemonades, the company says. Minute Maid Pink Lemonade features 15 calories in each 8-ounce serving, while regular Minute Maid fruit drinks have 110 calories a serving, according to the company. The beverage is made with real lemons and contains 5 percent fruit juice. The drink launched in a new clear 59-ounce recyclable PET bottle, which will be used for the Minute Maid Light Lemonade brand going forward.
