SAVANNAH, Ga.–Diamond Crystal Brands® partnered with Grand Brands Inc® to distribute an innovative product in foodservice – True Lemon®. And now, just in time for summer, True Lemon packets are adding flavor to the South’s favorite drink – tea! Consumers can enjoy the taste of freshly squeezed lemon year-round in iced tea or any refreshing beverage served at over 350 Krystal restaurants.
True Lemon is real crystallized lemon with an authentic taste. Its simple, clean ingredients come in a convenient portion control packet. It contains no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or colors and is non-GMO. There are zero calories or sugar in True Lemon. This form of fresh squeezed lemon taste is sanitary while eliminating waste and food safety concerns. Since the product is shelf stable and requires no refrigeration, it’s easy-to-use, serve and display at beverage counters or on tabletops.
The Krystal Company made waves when it agreed to become the first large fast-food company to offer True Lemon to flavor beverages.
“Krystal is an iconic restaurant brand fully invested in communities. The company provides top-notch service and products. We know the guests will enjoy flavoring their beverages with True Lemon. It’s convenient and authentic, just like Krystal,” said Steve Cohn, director of marketing, Diamond Crystal Brands.
Each 0.8-gram individual packet equals the juice of one lemon wedge and dissolves completely in hot or cold beverages. Available in bulk 500-count or twelve 100-count dispenser pack cases, both the lemon and lime flavors are sold through foodservice, convenience and office coffee service distribution everywhere.
