CPJ has taken a soft, palatable turn with the introduction of Glinter, the newest member of the carbonated drink family.

Boasting an absolute refreshing and luscious taste to savour, the wine and spirit distribution boss offers this soda as a perfect alternative. Rojah Thomas, marketing brand manager for CPJ, told Food that the sparkling beverage is also a healthy choice.

"It's what we at CPJ call hot bread. It's a very youthful brand. Unlike the usual brands, this drink does not contain any saccharine, artificial colouring and caffeine," he said

Even without these ingredients, you'll definitely get the same fun, carbonated experience you're accustomed to from sodas.

"It's not just the look, it's the taste." The clear and appealing thirst quencher comes in a transparent container, making it attractive to consumers. It's available in a number of flavours, including orange, kiwi, strawberry, green apple, and the most famous, lychee.

Made with the right amount of fizz and without leaving an after-burn in your mouth, the canned beverage is also a great option to add to your favourite spirit. Currently, it's only available in one size, 350ml, a convenient package which makes it easy to carry.

Glinter is available in the major retail supermarket outlets such as Hi-Lo, Progressive Grocers, MegaMart, and independent supermarkets, as well as the CPJ Market in Kingston and Montego Bay.

"Once you try one flavour you immediately will want to try more, and that's what has really propelled the success of the brand, " Thomas said.
