‘Just-picked’ fruit drinks feature simple pour-over-ice-and-blend
Made with “just-picked fruit flavor,” Jet Real Fruit Smoothie and Blended Beverage Mixes are shelf-stable, pour-over-ice-and-blend smoothies made with all-natural ingredients, and available in strawberry, lemonade and mango flavors. Stored in shelf-stable aseptic packaging, the varieties simplify premium frozen beverages, as operators can pour over ice and then blend. Retailers can buy any commercial grade blender and receive three free cases of product or earn up to $300 cash back, according to the manufacturer.
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.
