Zavida's MiniSyrup®, The Unsweetened Syrup™, will be launching its new Cold Beverage Flavoring Line at the North American Convenience Show (NACS) in Las Vegas October 7 to 10. The line includes 10 new MiniSyrup flavors. Now iced teas, fountain sodas and water can be flavored cup-by-cup without changing the nutritional facts panel for any of these beverages.
MiniSyrup, which is celebrating its first anniversary at the NACS show (visit booth #3219 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre), was developed in response to a growing demand by calorie-conscious customers confused by the term 'sugar-free.' Whereas most 'sugar-free' syrups still contain sweeteners, MiniSyrup is completely unsweetened and contains no sugar or artificial/natural sweeteners. This ultra-premium flavoring syrup adds flavor without adding any additional sweetness and is diabetic friendly.
"This has resulted in a new level of beverage customization unlike anything seen before and has redefined the syrup category for convenience stores by flavoring not only coffee, but hot chocolates, cappuccinos, mochas and more," says Charles Litterst, Creator of MiniSyrup, CEO Zavida Coffee Company Inc. "With more than 3,400 convenience installations across North America in less than one year, and strong distribution penetration with broad-line distributors, it has become apparent consumers want control over the amount of flavor and sweetness in their favorite beverage."
Recently rolled out at Sobeys owned Needs Convenience (www.needs.ca), one of the largest Canadian Convenience Chains, Category Manager Marc Rex says "It was a no-brainer. Our previous syrups were very sweet and couldn't flavor our pre-sweetened hot chocolates or other dispensed beverages. With MiniSyrup, we now have one syrup that flavors all of those and our fresh brewed coffee at the same time."
MiniSyrup is a product of Zavida Coffee Company Inc., now offering almost 30 MiniSyrup flavors as well as more than 200 gourmet coffee products.
