TalkingRain beverage reaches national audience
May 10, 2011
Preston-based TalkingRain Beverage Co., a water and flavored-beverage provider, announces the expansion of the Sparkling ICE brand to Kroger and affiliate stores nationwide.
The expansion highlights TalkingRain’s drive to be a leader in calorie-light, healthy drink options in light of the United States’ obesity epidemic. The beverage appeared on shelves in almost 2,000 Kroger and affiliated stores nationwide starting April 25. Kroger affiliates in the Issaquah area include Fred Meyer and QFC.
“This new distribution in Kroger and affiliate stores is a huge step not for just TalkingRain, but for Sparkling ICE as a brand,” Kevin Klock, general manager and senior vice president at TalkingRain, said in a release. “We are so excited about the rapid growth of Sparkling ICE, as it will enable us to reach a broader, health-conscious demographic.”
Sparkling ICE is available in six flavors, including orange-mango, black raspberry and lemon lime.
