IZZE is a brand that seeks to elevate everyday experiences with style through uncommonly bright, bold, true to the fruit flavors. We fuse 70% juice with 30% sparkling water to bring you a bright, delicious experience!

IZZE is looking to find a way to bring its own distinctive twist to the holidays (Thanksgiving & Christmas), which have traditionally been about the classics, from apple cider to egg nog. IZZE hopes to help people enjoy bold flavors and new ideas to elevate their holiday celebrations with the unique spirit of IZZE!

In order for IZZE to be successful, they must develop flavor combinations that are bold, true to the fruit, and that embrace the holiday spirit, all while helping people stand out during the holiday season of sameness.
