PepsiCo Introduces Rockstar Unplugged

PepsiCo has planned to focus on young consumers as wells as women with its initiative of flavoring the drink with herbs.

The new formulated drink is infused with hemp seed oil, spearmint, lemon balm and a slight amount of caffeine (80 mg approx.). The amount of caffeine in other variations of Rockstar drinks varies from 160 to 300 mg.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health said 18- to 34-year-old men account for consumption of the greatest portion of energy drinks.

The senior vice president and chief marketing officer of PepsiCo’s energy business, Fabiola Torres, said the drink combines herbals to help human relax not fall sleep.

Presented in 12-ounce cans and flavors including blueberry, passion fruit and raspberry cucumber, Rockstar Unplugged will be available from Tuesday. The starting price for each can is $1.99. The drink’s formula is quite different from what was introduce in Germany last April, added Torres. Unlike the popularity of hemp-infused food and beverages in Germany, they couldn’t attract customers in the U.S.

Hemp seeds contain little to no cannabidiol (CBD). At present, large American companies like PepsiCo and Coca-Cola have not been affected by US restrictions against selling food CBD-infused foods and drinks. However, the consumption of CBD drinks has been moderate. The report by Brightfield Group shows that from October to December 2021 no more than 1.8% of Americans bought CBD drink.

PepsiCo's Cocktail Mixers To Be launched in A Month

A new brand, named Neon Zebra, will start up soon under PepsiCo, the American food and beverage company. The initiative of at-home beverage began two years ago, well before the pandemic. Cocktail mixers, over 52 weeks ending on February 13, saw a rise over 36% compared to a year ago. Likewise, the Coca-Cola Company launched line of dark-spirit cocktail mixers in 2019, exclusively offered in the UK. The alcohol trend, too, gained a momentum during the pandemic; IWSR (a major database for survey on the beverage alcohol market) forecasts 7% of off-trade alcohol consumption, by the year 2024, will be provided through e-sales. Emily Silver, VP of Innovation & Capabilities at PepsiCo Beverages North America said we are working on quality ingredients for at-home products.
