Hank’s Heralds National Health Education Week


PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Healthy Aging, Live Long, Live Well is the theme of this year’s National Health Education Week on October 12-18. To encourage awareness and action toward healthier living, Hank’s Gourmet Beverages will launch its new line of vitamin-infused, sparkling beverages during the same week.

Launching at the Natural Products Expo on October 16 – 18 in Boston, Hank’s will introduce boomers and their kids to Hanks Gourmet Infusions. This line not only meets consumer’s rising demand for beverages that taste good and are good for them, but that are infused with natural Vitamins B12, C, and E, calcium and antioxidants.

Hank’s Gourmet Infusions come in four unique flavors appealing to palettes both young and old. Its Berry and Green Apple are reminiscent of kids’ favorite hard candy flavors, while its Orange Cream and Root Beer Float respectively re-create the sensation of many baby boomers’ favorite treats: the Creamsicle(R) Pops and the ice cream/root beer float.

To maintain the authenticity of these traditional flavors and to create a sweet treat that is healthy, Hank’s has infused all natural ingredients only, including real sugar, skim milk and small amount of cream. Combined with its light carbonation, these sparkling gourmet beverages deliver a refreshing taste with a rich texture that appeal to kids and parents alike.

“Parents today are looking for alternatives to traditional soda; they want beverages with benefits,” says President Bill Dunman. “A lot of families grew up on our traditional root beer soda. We wanted to deliver a product with the same great taste, but infused with all natural vitamins, calcium and antioxidants. We’re pleased that our Hank’s Gourmet Infusions line delivers it all; good taste and health benefits.”

Additionally, with its individual and four-pack, 12 ounce, slim, aluminum can package, this line is portable, safe and convenient. Hank’s Gourmet Infusions are available through select distribution and online at www.hanksbeverages.com.

Saint-Gobain says the design is “upscale, contemporary and eye-catching for pure enjoyment, inside and out.” The winning Michelob Celebrate bottle, also by Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company, is “an elegant 24-ounce glass bottle intended for sharing,” the company adds.

The Hanks Beverage Company has a loyal consumer base that appreciates and recognizes the care it puts into its beverages, from the distinctive upscale glass packaging to the unparalleled flavors.”
