Guava Lemonade’s Authentic and Fresh Flavor Provides Customers an Unrivaled Tasting Experience

Fort Pierce, FL (PRUnderground) May 13th, 2022

Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company announced today that its Guava Lemonade has won Best New Beverage in Specialty Food Association’s (SFA) 2022 sofi™ Awards. Each year, the association’s Sofi Awards honor the year’s best products and specialty food innovations. Products are judged on taste, including flavor, appearance, texture and aroma, ingredient quality, and innovation. Natalie’s Guava Lemonade competed with 2,000 entries across 53 product categories. The anonymous tastings were held by judges at the Rutgers Food Innovation Center.

“Winning a SOFI award for our new Guava Lemonade further reflects Natalie’s commitment to excellence when it comes to producing the highest quality juices available,” said Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice’s Vice President of Marketing, Natalie Sexton. “We know consumers are looking for authenticity in the drinks they chose to refresh with, which is why we list Guava Lemonade’s four simple ingredients on the front label so they know Natalie’s is offering them a great tasting, authentic option.”

Natalie’s Guava Lemonade adds an exciting twist to the classic summertime refreshment. Great for cooling off during a hot summer day and at night it makes the perfect mixer for a chilled evening cocktail. This lemonade is minimally processed and has no preservatives and no artificial ingredients.  It contains just four ingredients: fresh lemons, Guava puree, Florida pure cane sugar, and water.

“The Specialty Food Association is known for recognizing product innovation, so we are honored they chose our Guava Lemonade as a best new product in the beverage category,” said Natalie’s Juice Company’s founder and CEO, Marygrace Sexton. “With this unique lemonade, Natalie’s takes our customers back to the days of a nostalgic roadside lemonade stand – and then updates the experience with the delicious and smooth taste of fresh-picked guava. It makes for the ultimate refreshment.”

The Sofi Awards are open to members of the SFA and have been held each year since 1972. Winning products will be featured at the 2022 Summer Fancy Food Show, which is being held June 12-14, 2022 at the Javits Center in New York City.
