Get ready for summer with the sweet tropical vibe of Guava, found at the taste intersection of pear and strawberry. This unique taste can be found in sparkling water, CSDs, energy drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, dietary supplements, snacks, and more. In 2024, there have been several Guava RTDs and snacks released including Hiyo Strawberry Guava non-alcoholic social tonic, Solely Mango Guava Fruit Jerky, Smirnoff Electric Guava Infused Vodka, Reign Storm Guava Strawberry Energy Drink, and Truly Tequila Soda Pineapple Guava. Also in 2024, McDonald’s rereleased their Guava & Crème Pie at select locations in Hawaii and Florida, and in 2023, Wetzel’s Pretzels introduced their LTO Guava Mangonada Slushie mixed with Tajin Fruity Chamoy Hot Sauce. Perfect Guava pairings from our flavorists include Pink Lemonade, Rose, and Milk Chocolate.
