PRESTON, Wash. — Sparkling Ice, from Talking Rain Beverage Co., is launching an extension of its flavored sparkling water line with flavors of superfruits.

Sparkling Ice Superfruit comes in Strawberry Dragon Fruit, Blueberry Acai and Prickly Pear Lemonade. It is sweetened with Stevia leaf and has zero sugar, 5 calories and vitamins B, C and D. The drinks come in 12-ounce sleek cans.

“Sparkling Ice Superfruit delivers the same bold flavor that our Sparkling Ice fans enjoy, now with a sweetener from natural sources. While our core line isn’t going anywhere, we are excited about everything this new line extension has to offer,” said Erik Throndsen, executive vice president of beverage technology and innovation at Talking Rain.

Sparkling Ice Superfruit will first launch in July in the St. Louis area.

Talking Rain Beverage, Preston, Wash., has products in a wide range of flavors. Its drinks are made with zero sugar and naturally sourced colors. This summer, the company launched its first hard seltzer, Sparkling Ice Spiked.
