Festive sparkle returns with limited edition J₂O Glitterberry
Britvic is bringing back the festive limited edition of J₂O Glitterberry. The blend of grape, cherry and winter spices with edible gold glitter proved itself to be a strong performer in the festive party season with J₂O Glitterberry sales up +16% YoY.
The festive flavour is designed to help operators tap into adult socialising occasions which is a big opportunity during the Christmas period as shoppers spend on soft drinks increases by +11% . Its market appeal is further enhanced by the rising low and no alcohol trend, meaning that shoppers nationwide are looking for non-alcoholic drinks which are just as special as the alcoholic alternatives.
Adam Russell, Director of Foodservice & Licensed at Britvic, said: “Operators can tap into the buzz of increased consumer engagement following the TV campaign by maximising space in display fridges for the eye-catching product, and ensuring that it’s at the top of the winter drinks menu choices. Given the trend for premiumisation at Christmas, topping J₂O Glitterberry with prosecco is a great way to elevate your customers’ experiences, and a rare chance to add to your cocktail menu with an exciting festive drink that is both cost effective and easy to make.”
