In 2013, we launched Proper Soda with our first flavor Hop Soda, a light and refreshing soft drink made with four ingredients: water, cane sugar, citric acid and natural hops extract. It is the only soda on the market that attains flavor exclusively from hops.
We have received numerous accolades, including four stars on BevNet, who called it a great “cousin of craft beer” and the most enjoyable non-alcoholic hops beverage they’d ever had.
Hopefully our Hop Soda has given you a taste for the quality and style of sodas we aim to create, and it's time to look at what is next.
Proper Soda is looking to add a new flavor. We have narrowed down the semi-finalists to Coffee and Hibiscus, and need your help to decide!
Every backer will will be able to cast one flavor vote at the end of the campaign, after which the winning flavor will be announced.
To sum up our goals for flavors: they should be unique and intriguing—no orange or cherry sodas here! They also will have real ingredients - cane sure and natural flavors. Most importantly, they have to taste good. Isn't that what it's all about?
So America, it’s time for you to take action.
We have narrowed down a number of flavor possibilities. What will it be folks?
The crisp, sweet, tartness of Hibiscus?
Or the rich, velvety, caramel-y cola-esq flavors of Coffee?
It is up to You!!!
Risks and challenges
There are various costs and challenges associated with prototyping a new flavor, including:
• flavor profile prototyping
• label design
• label die cut fees
• physical label printing
• product shipping costs
• minimum product run costs
Timing is always a big one - we have tried to give good lead times for when we can expect to deliver these rewards, but things can happen. No matter what we will keep the process going, and let you know if we happen upon delays.
Our philosophy is to never quit - we will get this next flavor made!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
