Later this month, as Spring heats up, the icy, irreverent icon responsible for making
Nestea cool with teens will begin pitching a new image for Nestea Cool and the
brand's first lemonade tea. The pitchman for this new, sweet taste is a hip snowman
that melts to the bone in hot situations and is restored only by a swig of Cool.
The job of the snowman that will be seen guzzling Nestea Cool will be to give a
cold drink new life in a very hot market in the United States.
The snowman will get help in a national marketing campaign that kicks off this month
from three of America's hottest new Olympic stars - Ross Powers, Danny Kass and
J.J. Thomas. Nestea hopes the snowboarders will inspire teens and young adults to
drink Cool and boost the drink's sales to new heights. In addition to the sponsorship
of the Olympic snowboarders and introduction of the new lemonade-flavored ice tea,
the campaign will be supported by in-theater and national sampling programs, and an
Positioned by our company's Beverage Partners Worldwide joint venture as a soft
drink that just happens to be a cold tea, Nestea Cool's cold, refreshing taste
is designed to appeal to consumers aged 12 to 24. Nestea Cool aims to grab a bigger
share of those who like their cold drinks sweet, but not carbonated. In 2000,
consumers bought 1.3 billion cases (with 16 drinks per case) of tea bags and
ready-to-drink teas. Behind that growth: Consumers turning to noncarbonated fruit
and tea drink seen as healthy. Nestea's new lemonade tea - a beverage that is
50 percent lemonade and 50 percent tea - has a very different taste than Nestea's
lemon tea, which is 99 percent tea with a pinch of lemon.
Both the new packaging and lemonade iced tea will hit store shelves in mid-April.
