Tesco launches Drip & Drop kids’ water drinks as temperatures soar 
  • Posted 5 years ago

A new range of 100% natural artesian spring water drinks for children has been launched at Tesco at just the right time, as temperatures have soared to record highs this month.

Drop & Drop is made from spring water found in a unique artesian water source rising from deep within the volcanic rock under the hills of Antrim.  This means that it is protected from pollution and makes it one of the purest forms of water available.

The Drip & Drop range is aimed at children and includes two naturally fruit flavoured sugar-free waters (berry and apple & blackcurrant) and two extra juicy varieties with added fruit juice (orange and apple & blackcurrant).  They contain no artificial colours or flavours and are all low in sugar or sugar free.

Steven Murphy, Tesco Buying Manager said, “This range is launching at just the right time.  With this hot sunny weather, it is more important than ever to keep children hydrated.  It can be hard to get kids to drink water but this range is not only extremely pure and locally sourced but also full of great natural juicy flavour.  With Back to School not too far off, these will make a perfect addition to school break and lunch boxes.

“Water Within” is another one of our great Taste Northern Ireland suppliers.  We love to be able to celebrate hard-working local companies and share their products with Tesco customers.  Shoppers can keep an eye out in store for other local products bearing the Taste NI label.  Drip & Drop is as pure and local as it gets, coming from deep under Northern Ireland’s own volcanic rock – how amazing- and it tastes great too!”

To accompany photos: The Drip & Drop guys popped in to visit some thirsty kids at a Belfast summer scheme.  It was hot and thirsty work for the kids on the Galaxy Coaching scheme at Grosvenor Grammar School – thankfully Drip & Drop had some fun and ensured the kids were hydrated and cooled down!
