Two years after the introduction of the next-gen fruit category, consumer and artisan brands in North America, the UK, Europe, and Asia-Pacific are introducing cacaofruit in all various types of beverages. Cocktails, mocktails, beers, energy drinks, health drinks,...
The unique zesty and fruity cacaofruit flavors have taken flight globally and surprises everyone who had the pleasure of tasting the magnificent cacaofruit combination. Blue Stripes, which was recently launched in Whole Foods Market throughout the US, introduced a range of cacaofruit waters. BevCacao offers a range of functional cacaofruit water and Xoca, a probiotics drink.
In Europe and the UK cacaofruit waters are popping up such as Kokojoo and Pacha de Cacao. The brand Kayu takes it to the next level with an energy drink made from the cacaofruit pulp. But it does not stop there: in Germany, a non-alcoholic cocktail base Kiukiu is on the market. And it will also launch soon in the UK through a national retailer.
Last year, Ritter Sport and Lindt, launched a 100% pure cacaofruit bar. In Belgium, the land of craft beers, Acan introduced a fresh, sweet-sour, and fruity beer consisting of 80% beer and 20% cacaofruit juice, all available to purchase across borders!
