Gilbert, AZ (Sept. 30, 2013) – AARP* members will experience one of 2014’s most promising trends in natural products at Life@50+ 2013, the organization’s conference in Atlanta from Oct. 3-5.
SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener, the No. 1 selling natural stevia**, will be serving refreshing drinks created with SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia® Sweet Drops® – natural, zero-calorie sweeteners that add a light, fruity flavor to still or sparkling water. Life@50+ 2013 attendees can visit the SweetLeaf® booth in the Health and Fitness Pavilion, to try the different drinks and take home recipe cards for fun cocktails and non-alcoholic “mocktails.”
“As we learn more about the importance of hydration, water has moved to the center of the healthy lifestyle,” says James May, SweetLeaf® Founder and a longtime AARP member. “With the AARP conference’s packed schedule, attendees will want to stay hydrated. Sweet Drops® will help them do that – naturally and deliciously.”
As attendees will discover, health-oriented baby boomers will appreciate Sweet Drops® with:
- Zero calories, zero carbs and zero glycemic response
- More than 17 flavors, including those ideal for fruity, hydrating drinks:
- Lemon Drop
- Valencia Orange
- Root Beer
- Soda-busting ability to add to regular water for everyday hydration and after exercise, and to sparkling water for a zero-carb, zero-calorie alternative. Customize your drink by adding flavor to taste or combine flavors.
- Made from stevia extract, a natural alternative to big-brand water enhancers filled with preservatives and artificial sweeteners.
Sweet Drops® can be added to foods or beverages for sweet, sugar-free flavor. The award-winning Chocolate and Vanilla Crème flavors are popular for coffee and cooking.
Attendees can also learn about Sweet Drops® Water Enhancers, four new flavor blends packaged in convenient 1.5-ounce “droplet” bottles. The flavors were chosen specifically for their fruity, refreshing taste in water, and two flavors were chosen by votes from nearly 13,500 SweetLeaf® Facebook fans. Sweet Drops® Water Enhancers will debut in selected retailers in January 2014.
Sweet Drops® join other stevia products created by SweetLeaf®, including go-anywhere packets, a shaker jar for home use and a blend for cooking and baking. Winner of the most international awards for taste and sustainability, SweetLeaf® is the most natural and best-tasting stevia in the marketplace.
