Growing up, summer tea was a beverage staple and now those classic flavors have come to the Bud Light Seltzer Iced Tea Variety Pack. As hard iced teas compete with the many hard seltzers on the shelf, Bud Light looks to classic flavors to bring that taste of nostalgia to the glass. Ready to crack open a can?
For some beer drinkers, they are fiercely loyal to a brand. From asking for their favorite beer on draft to stocking the refrigerator with that iconic blue can, the beverage is always within arm’s reach.
Still, people want variety. The truth is that sometimes a different flavor doesn’t mean that the favorite, familiar sip is forever pushed aside. Instead, beer drinkers are more willing to reach for a brand that they trust while satisfying a different thirst.
According to Andy Goeler, Vice President of Marketing, Bud Light. “While Bud Light Seltzer always strives to innovate and bring delicious tasting flavors to the market, we also want to ensure we’re giving our fans products that fit their lifestyle.” The new Bud Light Seltzer Iced Tea Variety Pack is that perfect example.
What flavors are included in the Bud Light Seltzer Iced Tea Variety Pack?
According to Bud Light, the variety pack includes four classic summer-centric flavors. While each beverage is made with natural flavors and cane sugar, the hard iced tea has a sense of familiar. Whether enjoyed at the beach, backyard barbecue or even on the couch watching a game, the reality is that these flavors have a broad appeal.
The flavors are Peach Iced Tea, Raspberry Iced Tea, Tangerine Iced Tea and Apple Iced Tea. Looking at the four flavors, the peach and raspberry flavors are somewhat expected. Both options are summer time classics. From the sweetness of the stonefruit to the slight tartness of the raspberry, these flavors pair well with tea.
The tangerine option is a nice twist to a citrus forward tea. This idea proves that lemon isn’t the only citrus flavor that works with iced tea.
Lastly, apple is a curious choice. Although apple and tea are not common pairings, the flavor might be summertime perfection. Just think how this beverage will pair with an apple pie on the fourth of July.
While each flavor is meant to stand on its own, Bud Light is suggesting that the hard iced teas be blended with the hard lemonades, similar to an Arnold Palmer approach.
Whether it is a half and half split or a different ratio, those combinations could be quite refreshing on a hot day. A similar approach could be used with a traditional hard seltzer flavor, too.
The Bud Light Seltzer Iced Tea Variety Pack will be available starting May 24 in a 12-pack, slim cans option. Also, the peach flavor will be sold in a 25 oz single can. In addition, a Bud Light Seltzer Mix Pack featuring a 24, 12 oz slim cans will be available for a limited time.
