IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – April 05, 2017) – True Drinks Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: TRUU), makers of AquaBall™ Naturally Flavored Water, the healthiest children's beverage on the market with no sugar, preservatives, calories, or artificial flavors, is pleased to announce distribution of AquaBall 6-packs at Food Lion.
AquaBall is now available in 6-packs at all Food Lion locations in three flavors: fruit punch, berry frost, and grape. In addition to adding 6-packs on shelf, True Drinks is working hard to make consumers aware of the brand, marketing AquaBall with in-store kiosk entry points, coupons, product samples and placement in Food Lion's new items center, as well as placing ads in direct mail circulars and on mobile platforms.
Kevin Pruitt, Category Manager at Food Lion, commented, "Parents don't buy one bottle of water; they buy 24-packs of water or ten-packs of a juice drink. Multi-packs get AquaBall onto the playing field. True Drinks supports the brand, and, for category managers like myself, those different points of disruption are great ways to make the customer aware of the item."
Kevin Sherman, CEO of True Drinks, added, "Food Lion is a big part of the expansion of our multi-pack presence in grocery. With our goal of ending the trends of juvenile diabetes and childhood obesity, this pack can really make a difference in children's health. For instance, The American Heart Association recommends that children should not consume more than three to four teaspoons of sugar a day; however, the average juice box contains approximately four and half teaspoons of sugar per serving and the average juice pouch contains approximately five teaspoons of sugar. Children are essentially consuming their daily recommended sugar intake with just one serving of these excessive sugary beverages. It creates a compounding effect when children drink three to four of these beverages a day. The effects of this sugar consumption are wreaking havoc on today's youth sending the numbers of obese, diabetic and pre-diabetic children skyrocketing. As AquaBall finds its way into the everyday lunch boxes of children across the country, we can make a significant cut into the excessive sugar consumption associated with the beverages kids drink."
