At Chu Lo, we’re saying “sour-nara” to boring sodas with our soft drinks. But today, we want to shine a light on other soft drinks startups that are fighting beverage boredom with innovation and sparkling ideas!

We saw most these businesses showcased at Zenith Global‘s 2022 UK Soft Drinks Conference and were blown away by them! Others we know from other business relationship which we will explain! So, without further ado, lets dive into these drinks. 

1. FUL

Ful is a range of sparkling drinks made from Spirulina, a blue-green algae that’s super nutritious! They’re “climate positive” and currently come in 3 flavours! To top it off they’re low in calories, have no added sugar and are packed “ful” of good stuff like vitamin C and calcium!

2. Happy Inside Drinks

Happy Inside Drinks, like us, are stocked in YO! Sushi and this is how we know them! They are still drinks that boast being great for your gut health, with 50% of your daily vitamin C needs! These drinks are also high in fibre and contain “natural antioxidant” Japanese knotweed.

3. Get More Vits

These drinks definitely pack a healthy punch! If you’ve always wanted an easier way to “Get More Vits” into your diet – this might be the drink for you! The bonus is that all their fruity vitamin water is sugar free! 

If you don’t want to drink your “vits”, they also have vitamin supplement tablets, effervescent vitamin tablets, multivitamin chewing gum, and vitamin sprays!

4. Jitterbug Drinks

Bola’s drinks are seltzers (soda water) made with apple cider vinegar. They come in a variety of flavours, with her awesome branding being inspired by the 1950s with drinks names like Orange Jive!
