BAR NØNE | Coca Cola launches non-alcoholic premium drinks

Coca-Cola’s Venturing & Emerging Brands (VEB) unit is raising the bar for alcohol alternatives with the launch of a new line of booze-free adult sparkling drinks. BAR NØNE made its debut in October at Taste of Atlanta, where nearly 3,000 festivalgoers sipped on the four varieties, Spiced Ginger Mule, Bellini Spritz, Dry Aged Cider and Sangria. The drinks were crafted with bar-inspired flavours and premium, on-trend ingredients to appeal to beer, wine and cocktail drinkers. BAR NØNE is currently available in select package stores, bottle shops, restaurants and specialty markets in Coke’s hometown of Atlanta, and online. The bottled drinks – which contain between 70 and 130 calories – are sweetened with unique juice blends or cane sugar.

BAR NØNE I How it all started..

The idea for BAR NØNE hatched during an at-work conversation about flavourful substitutes for spirits – or, more specifically, the lack thereof. Sabrina Tandon, BAR NØNE general manager and a few colleagues were chatting about craving something more exciting than club soda for occasions when they didn’t want to partake. “We talked about not wanting to drink as often, or as much, as we had before,” she recalled. “We wanted something we could actually look forward to enjoying as much as an alcoholic drink – something sip-able and savor-able.” And they’re not alone. According to external data sources, non-alcoholic option trends are generation agnostic; Millennials are drinking less than Generation X, and Generation Z are imbibing less than Millennials.

“People are choosing not to drink for many different reasons,” said Tandon. “We’re not targeting a certain demographic… we’re targeting a mindset.” BAR NØNE went from idea to shelf in only 10 months. At Coca-Cola agile teams like Tandon’s are empowered to take risks, iterate and move quickly.

Of samplers surveyed on site at the ’Taste of Atlanta’ festival, 93% said they would buy the beverages, and 78% said they’d drink BAR NØNE straight up or over ice, without adding alcohol or other ingredients.

Atomo created the future of coffee; coffee without a bean. Startup Atomo, located in Seattle, uses naturally derived sustainable ingredients to create a smooth coffee with a perfect caffeine kick. By reverse-engineering the coffee bean, Atomo has created a naturally-derived and sustainable coffee with the same caffeine you’d expect and no harsh acid or bitterness. They analyzed the molecular compounds  in a cup of coffee and used the coffee’s blueprint to design the perfect cup of coffee without using any coffee beans. They produce a ground coffee, which looks and acts like a regular ground coffee and can be used in drip machines, pour overs, cups and French presses. lees verder

Another hotel that plays with the social media addiction of many guests today! On 14 February guests of the ‘Check Out Suite’ have the chance to experience a unique hotel stay at Hotel Bellora in Gothenburg, Sweden. There’s only one condition – you need to put down your screens. They introduce the world’s first hotel room where the price is set according to how much you browse the web. Less browsing and more hanging out equals a better price. So, check-in, and then check-out! They want to encourage people that are staying in the hotel to spend more time together and less time looking at the phone screen. The Check Out Suite is an exciting concept that challenges our online behavior and incites us to spend more time together. Unfortunately the registration date has expired! Great way to increase your brand awareness!   lees verder

Domino’s Pizza is ‘Paving for Pizza’ in the USA | Don’t let bad potholes ruin good pizza!

We missed this initiative by Domino’s Pizza  from June last year up to this morning but for once we don’t really mind. This way we can check whether this is just a media stunt or that they’re actually ‘paving for pizza’. As their press release back in June said; “Domino’s is saving pizza, one pothole at a time”. Cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store. Domino’s was hoping to help smooth the ride home for their freshly-made pizzas. Started June last year, Domino’s asked customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs at Paving For Pizza. And as we recently visited the states Florida and New York in the USA we noticed the terrible conditions of the road, so a great campaign by Domino’s Pizza.    lees verder
