Oakhurst Introduces Diet Iced Tea Just in Time for Summer
PORTLAND, MAINE — April 29, 2013 — Oakhurst announced today a new summer beverage that will be available across New England just in time for summer. Oakhurst’s Diet Iced Tea has a refreshingly delicious taste and is also low in calorie. The new product, along with the company’s seven other Iced Tea and Lemonade flavors, is in stores now.

Oakhurst’s Diet Iced Tea has five (5) calories per one cup serving (236 mL) versus 70 calories for the same serving amount of the regular Sweetened Iced Tea with Lemon Flavor – that is more than 90% fewer calories. The new product also contains no high fructose corn syrup.
“We've created our Diet Iced Tea specifically for those consumers who want a delicious tasting and refreshing diet option for one of their favorite summer beverages — Iced Tea,” said Bill Bennett, Oakhurst Dairy Chairman of the Board. “So as the weather heats up, we want to ask our consumers — whether they prefer diet or regular — to remember to cool off with an Oakhurst refreshing tea or lemonade.”
Oakhurst’s Diet Iced Tea joins a line up of seven other Oakhurst Iced Tea and Lemonade products including: Sweetened Iced Tea with Lemon, Iced Tea and Lemonade, Pomegranate Iced Tea, Wild Blueberry Iced Tea, Raspberry Iced Tea, Original Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade. All products can be found in pint and half- gallon containers. And new for this summer, consumers will be able to find the Sweetened Iced Tea with Lemon and Original Lemonade in one-gallon containers.
Oakhurst Teas and Lemonades are available in the refrigerated section at major retailers and convenience stores throughout New England. The products retail approximately $.99 for a pint, $1.79 for a half gallon and $2.99 for a gallon.
