Crystals International Inc., located in the heart of berry country in Plant City, announced Wednesday, that it will promote its True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer during the month of October 2000 to coincide with the peak of raspberry season.

Crystals International Inc. has, for over 40 years, been utilizing proprietary production methods to freeze-dry only the finest raspberry concentrates and purees available, leaving in the natural flavors and essential oils. The result is a natural, easy-to-use fruit crystal that is virtually indistinguishable from fresh juice. True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer is designed to produce the same quality and consistency, whether served on the rocks or frozen. Just combine with your favorite spirits for a taste only fresh berries can compete with. Recipes can be obtained by calling the True Crystals® Recipe Hotline, 1-800-607-TRUE (8783) 24 hrs.

True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer was developed specifically for use in alcoholic beverages and has the perfect taste, texture, and sweetness to be a winner, fresh or frozen. "Many restaurant and bar operators who have used our True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer have reported dramatic increases in sales during promotional events," stated Jennifer Closshey, president and CEO of Crystals International Inc. "Our True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer is definitely a crowd-pleaser," Closshey continued.

The advantages of using True Crystals® Raspberry Daiquiri Mixer are many as it comes packaged 12/14.9 ounce pouches per case. Each pouch yields one quart for rocks drinks and one gallon for frozen drink machine use.
