Fizzies FAQ, Don't you have QUESTIONS about FIZZIES? I KNOW I DID!
FIZZIES® are back!
NOW WITH NO CALORIES, VITAMIN C, GREAT TASTES, PRICE & FUN
TWIN CITIES – May 2006 – FIZZIES Drink Tablets are back, and they’re better than ever!
The popular fruit-flavored, effervescent drink tablets that were a hit in the ‘60s have returned
as a healthier, great-tasting soft drink at an affordable price.
Infused with Vitamin C, the new FIZZIES Drink Tablets contain all the magic of making your
own soft drink by simply dropping a colored FIZZIES tablet into a cool glass of water and
watching it fizz before it goes bubbling into your mouth. The new FIZZIES flavors — Sour
Apple, Lemon Lime, Root Beer, Blue Razz, Cherry, Orange and Fruit Punch — will appeal to
parents, grandparents and kids alike who enjoy the do-it-yourself fun of having a FIZZIES drink.
FIZZIES are made by the Twin Cities-based company, Amerilab Technologies, the international
leader in the development, manufacturing and packaging of effervescent tablets and powders.
The company’s new FIZZIES formula is redesigned to be safer, healthier and still as much of
a thrill to drink as the original product. FIZZIES is also perfect for families that want their
children to enjoy healthier and flavorful beverages at a reasonable cost. With zero calories and
the addition of vitamin C, it is the perfect choice.
When kids aged 8 – 12 tried the product, they were excited, because they thought it was
fun to make and they liked the vibrant colors. They also loved the taste and variety of flavors.
Portability also resonated favorably with the kids, because it is convenient to put in a backpack
or pants pocket.
FIZZIES Gets Makeover from Amerilabs
“In developing the new FIZZIES, we wanted to expand the experience that users of the
first product enjoyed back in the 1960s but also improve it for a new generation,” says
Fred Wehling, President and CEO of Amerilab Technologies. “In our focus groups with
adults ages 29 – 45, half fondly remembered FIZZIES, including specific flavor offerings and
packaging. They also recalled the product as being fun and tasting good and anticipated
their children would enjoy FIZZIES, too. We’re happy to be involved in the re-launch of this
memorable soft drink beverage.”
