Capt’n Eli’s Soda has added Capt’n Eli’s Diet Root Beer to its line of all-natural bottled soda. The new flavor joins the company’s current selection of Root Beer, Ginger Beer, Cream Soda, Black Cherry Pop, Blueberry Pop, Orange Pop and Strawberry Pop.
Capt’n Eli’s Diet Root Beer is made with a natural sugar substitute that is both caffeine and gluten free. The company said its goal was to craft a recipe that achieved a “full-body” taste that also served as a healthier option by reducing calories.
“With root beer as the first diet addition to our award-winning soda line, we’re looking to open up the diet soda market,” said Ed Crockett, president of Capt’n Eli’s Soda. “As we continue to innovate within the craft beverage space, we wanted to offer a reduced-calorie beverage without compromising at all on flavor. Since Root Beer is our most popular flavor, our new Diet Root Beer should be well received.”
The new flavor is now available for purchase online through Capt’n Eli’s official store and at retailers where Capt’n Eli’s products are currently sold. The company said it welcomes new distribution inquiries. Portland, Maine-based Capt’n Eli’s Soda is a part of the Forsley family of beverages.
