Juicy Juice Makes a Big Back-to-School Splash with Exciting New Products and Bold New Look
Reinvigoration of iconic kids’ beverage brand under new ownership includes drink pouches, new flavors, bold new graphics, exciting back-to-school promotion and content-rich website
STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 5, 2015 — Juicy Juice, the iconic kids’ beverage brand, is going back to school with a new line of drink pouches, bold new flavors, a can’t-miss package makeover, stepped-up marketing support and an upgraded website rich with activities and information. The updates are the first under the brand’s new owner, Harvest Hill Beverage Company, with more excitement for kids and moms to follow.
One thing that isn’t changing: the brand’s longstanding commitment to delivering products kids love and moms can feel good about. As always, all Juicy Juice beverages contain no high fructose corn syrup, cane sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Innovation to the core Juicy Juice line of kid-favorite 100 percent juices includes four new flavors: Strawberry Watermelon, Passion Dragonfruit, Peach Apple and Cranberry Apple. All four flavors are available in economical 64-ounce bottles, with Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Apple also packed in convenient 6.75–ounce juice boxes. Strawberry Watermelon and Peach Apple will be available nationwide starting in August.
Juicy Juice Splashers, the brand’s all-new drink pouches, are slated for nationwide availability starting in August after rolling out at regional supermarkets this summer. Available in bold Fruit Punch, Berry Lemonade, Peach Mango and Tropical Twist varieties, Juicy Juice Splashers cuts sugar content in half by adding filtered water, addressing moms’ concerns about sugar without compromising on flavors kids love.
An all-new logo and broad visual makeover, which will be rolling out in stores this August, put a contemporary face on an iconic brand. Vibrant, taste-tempting fruit images explode off every label, underneath a modernized Juicy Juice logo. The brand’s new look is also being showcased in stepped-up marketing support that includes print and digital advertising, free standing inserts, in-store and social marketing and more.
For the chance to win their own fresh, new look before heading back to school, consumers can visit www.facebook.com/JuicyJuiceUSA to play the Juicy Juice Juicy Makeover Instant Win Game and view the official giveaway rules.

“Juicy Juice was ahead of its time in committing to provide fun beverages kids love, and moms feel good about serving. Our innovative product introductions and fun, new look set the stage for continued leadership, and for a new generation of moms and kids to discover what makes Juicy Juice special,” said Ilene Bergenfeld, Chief Marketing Officer of Juicy Juice parent company Harvest Hill Beverage Company. “Moms today seek transparency and balance, two values that are core to the Juicy Juice brand.”
A recent “Truth in Juice” nationwide survey conducted by Juicy Juice revealed confusion in the juice aisle. Nearly half of moms surveyed said that two major brands other than Juicy Juice sell only 100 percent juice products, while in fact those other brands market certain juice drinks with ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors. Following a recent refresh, JuicyJuice.com now puts nutrition facts and ingredients information front and center, helping moms make sound, well-informed choices for their families.
Juicy Juice, the nation’s leading kids’ 100 percent juice brand, was acquired by Harvest Hill Beverage Company from Nestlé USA, Inc. in 2014. Follow Juicy Juice on Facebook at www.facebook.com/JuicyJuiceUSA.
