PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. Quench gum, marketed for its “thirst-quenching” flavors, will get an extra boost from American League baseball team the Milwaukee Brewers; the team has named Quench its official gum.
Mark Lutz, national sales manager for Quench, said, “We are thrilled to team up with the Brewers. Brewer fans are extremely loyal and their games are a big draw. It’s the perfect opportunity to support the home team and spread the word about Quench gum to a wide variety of people.”
Quench will be allowed exclusive marketing rights during the Brewers’ 2008 season at Miller Park and has planned several events for the summer, including giveaways like Quench Gum Night, July 25.
Mueller Sports Medicine is the maker of Quench gum, purported to help alleviate thirst because it has a tart flavor that stimulates saliva. In addition to its alleged prevalence among baseball players, Quench is also reportedly used by professional athletes in basketball, football, hockey, and even marathon runners.
