As the cold air has officially taken over, it appears that consumers’ thirst for cold-brew coffee remains hot. In the Readers’ Choice: New Product poll for September, Beverage Industry readers selected Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Lattes.
With 93 percent of the vote, RISE Brewing Co.’s ready-to-drink (RTD) cold-brew coffee is available in three flavors: Oat Milk Latte, Classic Latte and Mocha Latte. Each 7-ounce can is 150 calories or less and is USDA Certified Organic, shelf-stable and made from eight or fewer ingredients, the company says. The Nitro Cold Brew Coffees are available in four-packs for a suggested retail price of (SRP) $13.99, as well as in 12-packs for an SRP of $31.99.
Second place this month is GoodIdea Inc.’s Dragon Fruit Sparkling Water. Good Idea is sparkling water and a blend of five amino acids and chromium, which is scientifically proven to reduce the spike in blood sugar after a meal, the company says. The better-for-you beverages are available through the company’s website, Amazon.com and select retailers in Northern California.
