Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2011
Leaf Brands,LLC announces the expansion of their Astro Pops® franchise with the launch of three delicious Astro Pops® sodas, along with other Astro Pops® products.
Now available! The great taste of the classic, world-favorite Astro Pops® candy in delicious and refreshing carbonated soft drink flavors!
According to Leaf Brands CEO Ellia Kassoff, “Astro Pops is such an iconic, classic candy, it’s a no-brainer to literally launch soda pop with those same loved candy flavors. Moreover, we were seeing many cocktail concoctions created with the “Astro Pop” moniker so we believed it was a natural extension to make a non-alcoholic beverage version.”
Available in the three original Astro Pops® flavors we love: Pineapple, Passion Fruit and Cherry. Suggested retail price is $1.99 for a 12 oz. bottle
The real fun is mixing all three flavors together, creating your own Astro Pop®!
