Plymouth, Minnesota, April 4, 2011 – FIZZIES® Drink Tablets are continuing their comeback which began in 2006. With the introduction of two new flavors this summer, FIZZIES® is solidifying their strength in the ever growing nostalgic / retro candy category. The Hot versions of FIZZIES® – Hot Apple Cider and Hot Cocoa – are formulated with no sugar and low calories. They are simply Fizzilicious! The first look, taste and touch will be at this year’s NCA Sweet & Snack Expo in Chicago (Booth #232).
Hot Apple Cider and Hot Cocoa are seasonal and limited editions to the FIZZIES® brand. Perfect for the holidays, these effervescent tablets (sold in 8ct boxes) dissolve quickly in warmed milk (Hot Cocoa) and hot water (Hot Apple Cider). The rich aroma is quite captivating and the taste is remarkable coming from a flavored tablet. Now available for purchase, these two Fizztastic flavors will begin shipping in August 2011. FIZZIES® Hot Apple Cider and Hot Cocoa are wonderful contributions to the FIZZIES® family of flavors and are surely to be a hit with all generations of FIZZIES® fans.
