Sanpellegrino Launch 2 New Flavors @SanpelFruit_US


 The Magic of Sanpellegrino!  At Eataly last night, an amazing reveal from Sanpellegrino took place!

Eataly is my favorite New York City’s gourmet Italian marketplace and what a treat it was to celebrate the new summer flavors of my all time favorite sparkling fruit drink – Sanpellegrino!

From April 26th to April 29th, Eataly visitors witnessed a unique and artistic installation from Sanpellegrino, a global leader in sparkling fruit beverages, where their two new flavors were revealed over-time with a one-of-a-kind spring-inspired floral installation.

This morning, the flavors were finally revealed – officially announcing the addition of Melograno e Arancia (Pomegranate and Orange) and Clementina (Clementine) our FAVES to the Sanpellegrino Sparkling Fruit Beverages line-up.

 I was invited to learn all about the new flavors and how they can be used in the kitchen. With the Taste Buds of Spring Menu, I got to enjoy the yummy stuffed peppers with fish and veggies, glazed chicken with pomegranate and Cannoli with clementine zest.

Along with tasting the food prepared by the head chef of Eataly, we were also introduced to the proper wine pairing with the likes of Cerasuolo, Chiaranda and Ben Rye are all available at Eataly.
