Get ready to to drink cafe-quality, frozen coffee beverages all at home with Seattle's Best Coffee Frozen Coffee Blends.
Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) subsidiary Seattle's Best Coffee, and specialty food manufacturer Inventure Foods (NASDAQ:SNAK), which has worked with T.G.I Friday's and Boulder Canyon Natural Food -- created the new product to capitalize on the growing popularity of at-home blending, and the rise of blended coffee drinks. In 2012, the market raked in $4.3 billion.
By spring 2013, Seattle's Best Coffee Frozen Coffee Blends will hit freezer aisles at grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide. Made with 100% arabica coffe beans, Seattle's Best Coffee Frozen Coffee Blends will come in four flavors: Coffee Chiller, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, and Mega Mocha.
With the Frozen Coffee Blends packet, eight ounces of fat-free milk, and the press of a blender, consumers should be able to enjoy the beverage in less than a minute. Made with zero trans fat, nine grams of sugar, and 130 calories per serving, the suggested retail price will range from $2.99-$3.49 per eight-ounce package.
"The recent growth of iced coffee suggests that consumers no longer view coffee as just a morning routine," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president of marketing at Inventure Foods. "We see great potential for a delicious frozen coffee drink that can easily be made at home or at work any time of the day."
