Buddha Brands Launches New Thirsty Buddha Soda Reimagined With Plant-Based Prebiotics For A Healthy Gut

MONTREAL--()--Buddha Brands™, a leading Canadian natural snacks and beverages company, has launched Thirsty Buddha® Soda, a new line of sodas that are low in sugar, fibre-rich, and made with plant-based prebiotics to support a healthy gut. The company's new low sugar sodas come in a variety of refreshing, nostalgic flavours and are made without anything artificial.

Thirsty Buddha™ Soda joins Buddha Brands™ portfolio of healthy, delicious plant-based products including popular Thirsty Buddha® Coconut Water and Hungry Buddha® Bars. With the launch, the company is expanding its product line to include a refreshing and healthier alternative to traditional sugary soda that does not compromise on taste.

"Inspired by the tastes of childhood, we set out to create a soda that reminded us of the traditional soda we grew up drinking," said Buddha Brands™ CEO Christopher Magnone. "We're excited to offer a soda that is not only delicious but also has added health benefits thanks to the plant-based prebiotics and fibre."

Thirsty Buddha® Soda is available in three delicious flavours: Vintage Cola, Ginger Lemon, and Root Beer. All three varieties are made with natural ingredients, plant-based prebiotics, are caffeine free and contain 7g of fibre and only 2g of sugar per can, making them the perfect drink for the whole family to enjoy.

"Our new sodas are perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the sweet, nostalgic taste of soda without sacrificing their health," said Marketing Director Nora Collins. "We're confident that our consumers will love the taste and appreciate the added health benefits that our sodas provide."

Thirsty Buddha® Soda is available at select retailers across Canada and online at Amazon and the Buddha Brands website in 355mL cans (MSRP: $2.99).
