DRY Soda Co. launched Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling at Natural Products Expo West.

Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling celebrates the sweet, crisp taste of one of the world’s most beloved apples. The new flavor will be sold exclusively at 1300+ Target stores nationwide from April through September, with additional national retailers to be added in the fall of 2016.

“Fuji apples have been one of my favorite fruits since before I can remember. It’s very exciting to bring the flavor of these apples to the DRY line,” said Sharelle Klaus, founder and CEO of DRY Soda Co. “The flavor profile of Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling is so refreshing – much lighter and more elegant tasting than the heavy, sugary ciders and other apple drinks on the market. It is great straight out of the bottle, but it also pairs well with so many of my favorite meals – not to mention, the cocktail possibilities are endless. Adding Fuji Apple to our core line was an easy decision. We are thrilled to be launching it at select Target stores, alongside four of our other flavors.”

Originally grown in Fujisaki, Japan, the Fuji apple was brought to the U.S. market in 1962, and is now cultivated around the world, including in DRY’s home state of Washington. Crisp and refreshing, Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling is exceptional when paired with foods like fried chicken, muffulettas, pork chops, grilled cheese or vanilla ice cream. The aromatic flavor also serves as a simple and sophisticated cocktail mixer for drinks made with vodka, bourbon, brandy and prosecco.

Like all other DRY beverages, Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling is made with just four all natural ingredients, including a touch of cane sugar, allowing the true flavors of the fruit to shine through. It is OU Kosher certified, caffeine-free, sodium-free, Non-GMO Project Verified, and made without artificial flavors or colors. Fuji Apple DRY Sparkling will be sold in 4-pack glass bottles at a suggested retail price of $6.99.
