Fairlife unveils snack-sized ready-to-drink beverages
Fans of fairlife’s beverages can now enjoy a new collection of snack-sized drinks.
The new line of fairlife smart snacks is made with ultra-filtered milk and blended with a touch of honey, oats, real strawberries, cocoa and vanilla, the Chicago-based company said.
“As a mom, grandmother of triplets, a dairy farmer and a company spokesperson, my days are never the same, but always busy and jam packed with projects and activities that keep me constantly moving. Whether traveling for business or leading a tour around the farm, I’m always looking for that energy and nutrition boost in the mid-morning or mid-afternoon,” said Sue McCloskey, co-founder of fairlife. “That’s why I’m so excited to announce the addition of fairlife smart snacks to our portfolio, but I’m especially delighted because its irresistibly rich and creamy flavor profile excites my taste buds and it keeps me from being hangry between meals. I’m so proud that fairlife can offer one-of-a-kind products like these that bring superior nutrition in conveniently sized bottles that fit our fast-paced lifestyles today.”
Available in three flavors — rich chocolate, French vanilla and creamy strawberry — each drink offers 15 g of protein and 5 g of fiber in an 8-oz. bottle.
The beverages also are lactose-free, gluten-free, ultra-pasteurized for a longer shelf life and contain prebiotics, which has been found to nourish the good bacteria already in the gut for improved digestion and immune function, the company said.
Fairlife’s smart snacks are available in select Walmart locations and Amazon for the suggested retail price of $2.29 for a single-serve bottle and $24.99 for a pack of 12.
