Starting this fall, DASANI, America's No. 1 favorite water brand, will give people across the country the power to create their own personalized taste experience by putting flavor at their fingertips.

With four mouth watering flavors including Strawberry Kiwi, Pink Lemonade, Pineapple Coconut and Mixed Berry, DASANI DROPS is sure to enhance the experience of drinking water for those seeking to enliven the everyday. By simply flipping the cap and squeezing the bottle, water drinkers can mix in a little flavor or a lot of flavor for an intense burst of deliciousness. It's a great way to customize how people choose to tempt their taste buds, while offering them a delicious, sweet way to enjoy drinking water throughout the day. “DASANI DROPS is the perfect solution for those who want to mix things up with a refreshing splash of flavor in their day,” said John Roddey, Vice President, Water, Tea and Coffee for Coca-Cola North America. “DASANI DROPS gives people a new way to enjoy drinking water by pumping up the taste of DASANI with a simple squeeze of the easy-to-carry bottle.” A flavorful, fashionable accessory for busy moms and health-conscious people alike, DASANI DROPS will be packaged in a squeezable 1.9 fluid ounce bottle with a flip-top cap – perfect for those on the go. Each bottle provides value by offering 32 servings per container, more servings than other flavor enhancer options. Beginning in October, the four delicious flavors will be available in a wide variety of retail locations across the country where DASANI is sold. The debut of DASANI DROPS will be supported by an integrated marketing campaign, including digital, print and out-of-home advertising and in-store bundle offers. At local stores, on college campuses and at concerts across the country, sampling teams will give people a taste of how to punch up the flavor with DASANI DROPS.
