    Kayco Launches New WONDER LEMON™ 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Juice

    Kayco introduces WONDER LEMON™, a first-of-its-kind, superior-quality 100% organic cold-pressed juice with zero added sugar. WONDER LEMON was carefully created to combine the deliciousness of high sugar lemonade with the health benefits of lemon, and without the overbearing acidity of regular lemon water. WONDER LEMON gets it ‘ripe’ with the national debut of three natural lemon juice blends made of pure lemon juice and other fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. WONDER LEMON uses only fair trade, high-quality, and kosher ingredients to make a juice loaded with vitamins and nutrients.

    “Everyone loves the refreshing and delicious flavor of lemons, yet many do not know that lemons have incredible health benefits, says Laura Morris, Associate Marketing Director at Kayco Brands. “Unlike many other fruits you can eat by biting into or cutting them, lemons need to have something to take away from their tartness, unless you just squeeze them into your water – which is great, but doesn’t give you full lemon flavor. That’s why we created wonderful and refreshing Wonder Lemon, which is carefully crafted with all-natural ingredients and the amazing health benefits and full flavor of real lemons.”

    Refreshing with a twist, WONDER LEMON juice is available in three refreshing flavors: Lemon Ginger, Lemon Mint, and Lemon Basil Jalapeño. By pairing the natural tart flavor of lemons with other fruits, like apples, WONDER LEMON juices are sweet and refreshing, with no added sugar, artificial flavors, or artificial coloring. WONDER LEMON offers consumers a better-for-you beverage with fantastic taste and flavor, just without all the additives found in many other juices on the market.

    WONDER LEMON’s outstanding packaging and clean label highlight the benefits of: 100% cold-pressed juice, GMO-free, USDA organic, kosher, all-natural, fair trade ingredients, no additives or preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no added sugars, and not from concentrate. WONDER LEMON will fly off shelves into consumers’ hands faster than you can say squeeze.

    Lemons have long been a popular fruit for the health-aware consumer. They naturally have an abundance of vitamin C, calcium, and potassium that provide a boost to the body and aid in digestion and clear skin.

    The three lemon blend flavors have only five to six ingredients each. The Lemon Ginger is made with lemon juice, apple juice, lime juice, mango puree, passion fruit puree, and ginger; the Lemon Mint is made with lemon juice, apple juice, pineapple juice, lime puree, and mint; and the Lemon Basil Jalapeño has lemon juice, apple juice, lime juice, jalapeño, and basil.

    WONDER LEMON joins WONDER MELON in the Kayco cold-pressed juice line, which delivers all hydrating properties of everybody’s favorite summertime treat, watermelon, along with its natural bounty of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Devotees of these fashionable cold-pressed beverages swear by their delicious, hydrating goodness. Cold-pressed juice fans enjoy these juices either over ice, straight from the grab-and-go bottle, or in cocktails and mocktails. WONDER MELON offers two delightful varieties: Cool Watermelon Cucumber Basil and Watermelon Lemon Cayenne.

    Take Care of Yourself – The Mental Health Collection from TAFT

    Destigmatizing mental health issues is no easy feat, however, beginning the conversation is a great start. For World Mental Health Day, TAFT has ventured outside of footwear for a moment, creating a limited edition clothing collection with a percentage of proceeds donated to charities — bringing awareness to a cause that many people could resonate with and support.

Because of this, the brand has created its Mental Health Awareness Collection, inspired by co-founder Kory Stevens’ personal mental health journey and battle with depression. Retailing for under $150, the collection contains eight styles, dedicated to helping normalize mental health issues and encouraging others to seek help without shame or judgment.

    TAFT will be donating 10% of total proceeds from the Mental Health Collection to two of the brand’s favorite organizations: Mental Health America, a nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all, and Made of Millions, a global advocacy nonprofit organization on a mission to change how the world perceives mental health.

    Pet Honesty® Figured Out How to Help Finicky Cats Enjoy Taking Their Vitamins with the Launch of New Pillow-Style Cat Health Supplements

    Pet Honesty® has launched a new line of natural cat health supplements formulated to help finicky cats take their vitamins without a fuss. By combining a pillow-style supplement with a crunchy outer shell and a creamy, savory filling tucked inside, the brand has created a first-of-its-kind line of supplements loved by nine out of 10 cats in independent taste testing¹. As a leading natural pet health supplement brand, Pet Honesty aims to help make pet health supplements an easy, viable option for the many pet parents who care to support their pets‘ health in the same ways they support their own.

All of Pet Honesty‘s supplements are formulated with the highest quality natural ingredients and premium active ingredients that are science-backed and vet-approved with the bonus of pet-approved tastes for an easy daily routine.

    “Creating cat supplements that combine an appealing smell, taste, and texture was a priority for us,” said Ali Dyer, product manager and cat innovation lead at Pet Honesty. “Cats are notoriously particular, and they’ll be completely honest about what they like and don’t like. It was important to us to create a supplement they would honestly love, so the popular dual texture format for cats was worth exploring as a unique solution for cat supplements.”

    Pet Honesty‘s product pledge to pet parents is to provide a taste your pet will love and results you can trust with the most effective natural and other premium ingredients. This means no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors and formulated without wheat, soy or corn.

    The three new cat health supplement varieties include:

    • Hairball Support- formulated with a blend of apple pomace, psyllium husk, and fish oil as key ingredients to support hairball removal, help prevent future hairballs and support skin health.
    • Calming- formulated with a blend of thiamine, L-theanine, and chamomile as key ingredients to naturally promote relaxation and manage nervousness for cats exhibiting anxious behavior, which may also help reduce destructive behaviors.
    • Hip + Joint Health- formulated with a blend of glucosamine, green lipped mussel, manganese, and calcium fructoborate as key ingredients to ease joint stiffness and discomfort due to normal everyday activity and help maintain joint mobility.

    Pet Honesty‘s cat health supplements are now available on Chewy. By early November they will also be available at over 1,500 Petco stores, Petco.com, Amazon and PetHonesty.com.

    ¹Pet Honesty is committed to ensuring pets enjoy the taste of their chewy supplements by commissioning independent acceptability studies with industry standard methodologies that measure taste preferences.
