Del Monte Introduces new Carb Clever Fruits!
Del Monte November 1 — NEW PRODUCT:
Del Monte Foods announced sweet news for the millions of Americans who are forgoing the tremendous health benefits of fruit while following a low-carbohydrate diet. Del Monte Foods has developed the Del Monte Carb Clever brand, a new line of canned fruit that provides the same nutritional benefits of regular canned fruit, but has 50 to 70 percent fewer carbs.

Scheduled to hit shelves in November, Del Monte Carb Clever will give consumers a new way to enjoy the goodness and sweetness of fruit, while eating smart. Rather than packing the fruit in heavy syrup or natural fruit juices, Del Monte Carb Clever is packed in water and sweetened with Splenda. The result is great tasting, ready-to-eat fruit that's lower in carbs and calories, while retaining a natural, sweet taste.

The complete line includes the following five products:

  • 14.5 oz. sliced peaches
  • 14.5 oz. fruit cocktail
  • 14.5 oz. sliced pears
  • 8.25 oz. pear chunks
  • 8.25 oz. peach chunks
Low Carb Luxury is tops on the list to receive these new fruits and will be reviewing them at our site soon.


Bacardi Silver Low Carb Green Apple debuts:
October 27 — NEW PRODUCT:
Bacardi Silver Low Carb Green Apple As expected, Anheuser-Busch has officially announced Bacardi Silver Low Carb Green Apple, a new flavor of its malt beverage for carb watchers. The new beverage, which contains only 4.5 grams of carbohydrates and 94 calories per 12-ounce serving, provides "a fresh taste with a slightly tart and clean finish."

Bacardi Silver Low Carb Green Apple and Bacardi Silver Low Carb Black Cherry, which was introduced in June, are the two lowest-carb and calorie spirit-branded flavored malt beverages available. The new drink, which is 4 percent alcohol by volume, will be available in six-packs of 12-oz. bottles.

Diet Sprite Diet Sprite rebadged as Diet Sprite Zero:
October 11 — NEW PRODUCT:
In an apparent attempt to cash in on the low-carb craze, Coca-Cola has relaunched Diet Sprite as Diet Sprite Zero. Like the original, Diet Sprite Zero contains no sugar, no carbs and no caffeine.

While the lemon-lime beverage's formula is unchanged, Diet Sprite Zero is packaged in a clear version of Sprite's signature, 20-oz. "dimple" bottle with a metallic label featuring the brand's green and blue colors with yellow accents.
