Inventure Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNAK) has added a fourth flavor to its licensed line of JambaÂ® All Natural Smoothies kits, with the introduction of its new Caribbean PassionÂ® at-home smoothies to select test markets last month. The Company expects Caribbean Passion to be available in grocery stores nationwide in June.
Caribbean Passion is a frozen, tropically inspired blend of luscious mango, strawberry and peach fruits, creamy non-fat yogurt and a signature Jamba antioxidant Vitamin C boost. The non-fat yogurt contains passion fruit flavors that, when blended with the frozen fruit, provides a truly unique and great-tasting tropical smoothie. The new blend joins the rapidly growing grocery smoothie line that includes other Jamba JuiceÂ® store favorites, such as RazzmatazzÂ®, Mango-a-Go-GoÂ® and Strawberries WildÂ®. All four flavors of JambaÂ®All Natural Smoothies (www.athomesmoothies.com) retail for $2.99 - $3.49 per package.
Phoenix-based Inventure Foods launched the smoothie kit line under a licensing agreement with Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ: JMBA), a highly recognized healthy, active lifestyle brand, in early 2010. In the brief period since JambaÂ®All Natural Smoothies have launched into the marketplace, they have been added to more than 7,000 retail store freezer cases nationwide. Inventure continues to execute the national rollout of Jamba All Natural Smoothies this month; the Company expects the number of retailers selling the at-home smoothie kit to nearly double by August.
Each serving ofJambaÂ® All Natural Smoothies contains a full serving of fruit and 100% daily value of Vitamin C. The smoothie blends are all-natural and made with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, no high-fructose corn syrup, and 0g of trans fat. Each 8-ounce package blends easily with apple juice to make two delicious 8-ounces, 120-calorie smoothies.
"The Caribbean Passion smoothie kits include real frozen strawberries, peaches, mangoes and just the right amount of passion fruit flavor," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president Marketing, Inventure Foods. "It's the perfect tropical flavor arriving just in time for the warmer summer months ahead."
The JambaÂ® All Natural Smoothies product line marks the third successful licensing agreement for Inventure Foods. The Company remains focused on developing better-for-you, natural food solutions for health-conscious consumers.
