San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 9, 2011
Hiball Inc., a pioneer in the energy drink category, has expanded its relationship with Fred Meyer Stores in the Pacific Northwest. Hiball Sparkling Energy Juice drinks will now be available in all 130 Fred Meyer Stores through the chain's Nutrition Center.
"We are excited that Fred Meyer now has both Hiball product lines," said Todd Berardi, Hiball Founder and President. "Their early support for our Sparkling Energy Water line has helped Hiball to develop a very passionate fan base in the Pacific Northwest. With the addition of our lightly-sweetened Sparkling Energy Juice drinks, Fred Meyer shoppers will be able to enjoy the good energy of a Hiball, with just a touch of sweetness and flavor, thanks to the addition of organic sugar and all-natural juice."
Hiball Sparkling Energy Juice drinks contain only 16 grams of organic cane sugar and 70 calories per ten-ounce bottle. The juices will join Hiball's flagship line of Sparkling Energy Waters in Fred Meyer stores throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska. Flavors include Wild Berry, Cranberry Apple, Orange and Lemon Lime.
Hiball Sparkling Energy Waters are the only energy drinks made without sugar or artificial sweeteners and contain only 10 calories per bottle. Hiball's line of energy-infused beverages is completely free of preservatives and made with purified sparkling water, a proprietary blend of taurine, guarana, ginseng, B vitamins and natural caffeine.
