BRADENTON – We heard Pepsico CEO Indra K. Nooyi on TV after Davos talking about how they were seeking out healthier options for snack foods. Pepsico was going healthy. Really healthy. We were thinking some kinds of new versions of Quaker Oats or some such.
But when we saw these Tropicana tangerines, we said that she wasn’t kidding. The display was in a front area of a Walgreen’s on Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, Florida. Big old stack. Not sure if they sold, but they sure looked tasty. I am certain it presented all sorts of difficulties in keeping it stocked, but if they moved and sold quickly, who would care.
Last year’s packaging debacle is long gone. They’ve learned. Man, they look tasty.
Good work. We hope it sells.
Now, get on to the next steps. Opening up the Tropicana Plant in Bradenton for tours. Bringing Tropic-ana back. I want to ride on the back of that train, thank you.
