The Woodlands, TX (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
Zilch, Inc. announced that their Sugar Free Margarita Mixers, which have been making a splash across the country through internet stores, are now available in retail locations nationwide. States with retail locations include: Texas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas, South Carolina, New York, Mississippi, and California. This sugar free Margarita Mixer hit the shelves in 2004, and has been dominating the mixer marketplace with rave reviews. A regular 8 ounce margarita contains up to a whopping 540 calories and 50 carbohydrates. Zilch Sugar Free Margarita Mixers contain zero carbohydrates and zero calories. Yet, Zilch fans claim that the taste is as authentic as the real thing.
Zilch first began its distribution in Margarita-loving Houston, TX, through Spec's and other Houston liquor stores. Recent distributor additions for Zilch include Don's and Ben's Liquor Stores in San Antonio; Funco Distributors in Austin, San Marcus, and South Texas; Centennial Fine Wine and Spirits and Big Daddy's Liquor stores in Dallas and North Texas. Zilch proudly announced the recent addition of EEC, Inc., a California distributor based in Los Angeles. With rising consumer health consciousness and loyal internet customers, Zilch has plans for continued steady growth in new retail locations.
People trying to limit their sugar, as well as die hard Margarita fans, are raving about this tasty concoction developed by Marcy Johnson of The Woodlands, Texas. Johnson lost over 40 pounds after switching to her innovative version of the favorite cocktail. Johnson had followed a low sugar diet since turning 50, and became frustrated because she did not like any of the reduced sugar Margaritas on the market. According to Johnson, "Other low sugar mixers would sit in my cabinet and turn brown. They were just too tart or bitter to drink. So, I carefully formulated a recipe to make deliciously authentic Margaritas that are not too tart, and not too sweet. And it was important to me to easily carry my mixer along to parties, restaurants, and when I traveled."
Johnson's idea was original. Zilch was the first sugar free Margarita mixer available in take-along packets. At the time of her invention, Johnson's entrepreneurial son, Eric, owned a successful tea company in Uzbekistan. Eric was the one who encouraged his mother to market her mixer, and today he is President of their company, and responsible for day to day business. Johnson's husband Mike, CEO of Centrax International Corp. and financial advisor to the company, jokes that "Marcy drinks what she can, and then lets Eric sell the rest."
According to Johnson, Zilch Sugar Free Margarita Mixers are a delicious alternative to high carb, high calorie Margaritas. "Before Zilch, I couldn't enjoy Margaritas with my friends at restaurants. Now, I just order Tequila and water on the rocks, and add my little packet of Zilch. Even people who are not restricting their sugar intake love Zilch."
Johnson says Zilch Sugar Free Margarita Mixers conform to most national weight loss program plans and fit perfectly into any low calorie or low sugar lifestyle, including diabetic diets. Johnson, a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, says that the drink counts 2 points, which is good news for Weight Watchers members. The mixers are packaged in trendsetting individual serving packets, which are convenient to carry tucked in a pocket or purse. For more information, please go to http://www.zilchmixers.com.
