In Zone Brands, maker of children’s juice products TummyTickler, TummyTickler Tots and BellyWashers, is rebranding all three product lines under the new brand trademark good2grow. The line now includes 4-ounce good2grow apple juice for children ages 1 to 3, 6-ounce apple juice for ages 3 to 5, 6-ounce fruit and vegetable blends for ages 3 to 5, and 8-ounce fruit-juice blends for ages 5 and older.

Equivalent to 1/2 cup of fruit, the variety features Disney character-top bottles that are spill proof, mess-free and BPA-free. Washable, reusable bottles feature an ergonomic grip. The 6-ounce variety, geared for kids ages 3 to 5, is packed with 100% apple juice and equivalent to 3/4 cup fruit.
GasMart may be best known to the average industry follower for its 2012 acquisition of 37 stores from PCF Saleco and the Jumpin Jimmy’s chain of stores in Illinois. Those deals nearly doubled the company’s size.
