ARN's Ones to Watch 13

ARN Has ‘So Much to Tell You About’, Says John Crichton

Hello again.

Where to start this month?!

There’s so much to tell you about, with Big News from two popular drinks brands, a host of important new listings that are plugged-in to today’s culture of healthier living, plus one or two opportunities on old favourites on offer at ARN.  So here goes and based purely on the fact that The Toon has made it to the semis, let’s start with Carabao and more specifically, The Carabao Cup.

Win Tickets to the Carabao Cup Final!

ARNJust as the competition gets to the sharp end, the company has put two tickets to the Carabao Cup Final, at Wembley on 26th February, up for grabs. To enter, all you have to do is buy a case of Carabao from ARN before close-of-play on 29th January. You’ll automatically be entered into a Prize Draw, and you never know your luck… There’s no minimum order requirement and multiple entries are accepted. With Southampton, Man United, and Nottingham Forest alongside God’s Own in the semis, the final should be a belter.
In cases of 12 x 330ml cans, @ £5.79 each, and 12 x 500ml bottles, @ £7.99 each

Meanwhile, Monster drinks have just delivered their biggest-ever product launch and already, the new product is flying out of the ARN warehouse.

Monster’s ‘Lewis Hamilton’ drink has started FAST!

ARNIt’s no surprise really: Monster has teamed up with F1 legend Lewis Hamilton to launch a new, zero-sugar energy drink. The drink features a peach nectarine flavour, and not only contains zero sugar, but also has zero calories. Monster has broken records to become the number-one deliverer of value growth in the entire soft drinks category and Lewis has broken records for the most wins, pole positions, and podium finishes in F1. A match made in Heaven? It’s already looking that way. Don’t miss out! Get in pole position for the post-launch sales sprint!

Vita Coco’s CQUIN / School Compliant drinks are available NOW!

It’s Veganuary – not that you’d know it in our house, mind. However, there’s a rapidly growing band of consumers out there that are attracted both to the philosophy and to the health benefits of going meat-free. It’s no fad: for instance, retail sales figures confirm the growing importance of non-dairy ‘milk’ as a category. One of the standouts in the sector is Vita Coco. The brand is engaging with the marketplace like no other, thanks to its commitment to ‘positively impact 1,000,000 in coconut farming communities around the world’. The product is also CQUIN / School compliant. All of which is good to know; but what you need to know is that both varieties – Coconut Water and Choc-o-lot – taste great. Tap into the zeitgeist with ARN!
Vita Coca Coconut Water and Vita Coco Choc-O-lot come in 12x330ml cases @ £9.99 each

ARNThe offers and promotions at ARN don’t end here… Take a look at our January Promotions e-mailer for exciting news about Get More Vits, Mars, Boka; Love Raw, Britvic, Burts; Nocco, Barebells, Mini Cheddars; McVitie’s Jaffa Snack Pack and Jaffa Jonut;  Kenco, Douwe Egberts and Lavazza.
