Ooh La Lemin Lemonades from Kona Gold Beverage Inc. soon will be available in all Hot Spot convenience stores, which are in North and South Carolina.

Henderson, North Carolina-based MR Williams, Kona Gold Beverage’s new distribution partner in North and South Carolina, will distribute Ooh La Lemin.

“I am pleased to announce to our stockholders and customers, Ooh La Lemin Lemonades are coming to a Hot Spot location near you in North and South Carolina,” said Robert Clark, CEO of Kona Gold Beverage.

Kona Gold Beverage in early 2022 launched the Ooh La Lemin Sparkling Lemonade in 12-ounce sleek cans. The drink, made with natural ingredients, is gluten and GMO free and has 10 calories. It comes in six flavors: Blue Raspberry, Citrus Splash, Cucumber Watermelon, Huckleberry, Original and Pineapple Mango. The non-sparkling flavors are Blue Raspberry, Original, Peach and Strawberry.

Of the Melbourne, Florida-based company’s 10 SKUs of Ooh La Lemin, six will be sold in all 40 Hot Spot locations: three sparkling and three non-sparkling flavors. The company did not say which flavors will be in Hot Spot c-stores.

Kona Gold has been expanding its market presence with its Ooh La Lemin Lemonades, signing several new distribution partners across the United States, the company said. The company and its distribution partners are working with several additional convenience-store and grocery chains in key markets and will announce those as they come to fruition.

Hot Spot owner R. L. Jordan Oil Co. is a family-owned and operated business headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It operates 41 Hot Spot convenience stores, two Hardees, seven Subways, eight Hunt Brothers Pizza shops and one Champs Chicken in North Carolina and South Carolina. The company grew out of a small country store in Franklin, North Carolina. Gas 4 Less was the first gas station in the area to offer unbranded gasoline.
