The distinctive face-contorting pucker elicited by Lime is a stimulating experience enjoyed by many consumers. It is precisely that zest that makes Lime products so delectable. Over the past couple years, many product categories have captured Lime’s bright, vibrant essence including Whip Shots Lime Vodka-Infused Whipped Cream, Topo Chico Aguas Frescas Hibiscus Lime Hard Seltzer, and RIND + Lesser Evil Cherry Lime Organic Popcorn. This year, we’ve seen the launch of exciting Lime combinations such as Wonderful Pistachios Jalapeño Lime, BUBBL’R Watermelon Lime, as well as Taco Bell’s Mountain Dew Baja Blast and Mountain Dew Baja Blast Gelato which were recently released nationwide. Some top pairings from our Flavorists consist of Lime with Mango, Basil, and Raspberry. So, what are the elements that make the sweet, tart taste of Lime so invigorating and versatile?
