LAS VEGAS, NEV.-- XYIENCE Â® introduces Cherry Lime to the line-up of flavors for XenergyÂ®, the official energy drink of the Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipÂ® (UFCÂ®). During these uncertain economic times, comfort flavors rank as a top trend for 2009, according to the December issue of Flavor & The Menu magazine*. In the beverage category, Latin refresher flavors top the list. The new Xenergy flavor combines the nostalgic taste of cherry, reminiscent of the 1950s soda fountains, with a twist of the traditional Latin flavor of lime. It hits retail shelves in January 2009. The Las Vegasâ€“based brand is known for its sugar-free and calorie-free energy drinks, which contain only 2 grams of carbs. Cherry Lime will join six existing Xenergy flavors, all available in 16-ounce cans: Cran Razz, Mango Guava, Blu Pom, Citrus Clear, Pink Lemon and Big Apple.
The name Xenergy is a blend of â€œZenâ€ and â€œenergy.â€ Xenergy offers clean, sustainable energy without the dreaded bonk of other brands. Scientifically formulated to contain a blend of B vitamins, ginseng and caffeine, Xenergy provides a natural energy lift that appeals to both athletes and health-conscious buyers.
â€œThe flavor Cherry Lime had exceptional results with our demographic in taste tests. This fact, combined with the general 2009 flavor trends, makes us confident that Cherry Lime will be an important part of the Xenergy line,â€ says Csaba Reider, XYIENCE president and CEO.
