D'Angelo's Cheetah Power Surge Makes its First Foray into the U.S.

TORONTO, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - It's been a great year at D'Angelo Brands and it's looking as though 2010 will prove even greater. D'Angelo Brands announced they have just finished signing a landmark distribution deal with the Arizona Beverage Company to distribute Cheetah Power Surge - Caffeine Free Energy Drink in the United States. "Distribution will start in January with an initial push into five states (California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and New York) and then expand from there," said Frank D'Angelo President and CEO of D'Angelo Brands.

Currently available only in Canada, this will be Cheetah's first distribution deal south of the 49th parallel, with select distribution deals with other countries in development.

"We're excited about the prospects of Cheetah Power Surge in the United States because it's a caffeine-free, all-natural energy drink made with Ginkgo Biloba, Royal Jelly and Ginseng. So it complements our portfolio of Iced Tea beverages quite nicely," says Arizona Beverage's management. "Further this deal solidifies our relationship with D'Angelo Brands, as they have been producing Arizona Iced Tea beverages for the Canadian market for many years now."

Arizona Beverages has made Arizona Iced Tea the number one ready-to-drink tea in the United States, and if they can do the same for Cheetah it will be another incredible success story for Canadian company D'Angelo Brands.

"I think the reason Cheetah is getting a lot of interest is because it's Caffeine Free, all-natural, and it tastes great." says D'Angelo. "Consumers of any age - even kids - can drink this product without suffering any of the after effects usually associated with caffeine. It's a major concern for parents. And rightfully so."

D'Angelo Brands is a private company committed to providing high quality beverage products. Based in Mississauga Ontario, D'Angelo Brands offers a wide variety of beverages in addition to Cheetah Caffeine Free Energy Drink including D'Angelo Apple Juice, Soul Fruit, D'Uh Premium Old Fashioned Sodas, as well as private label and co-packaging services. www.dangelobrands.ca, www.cheetahpowersurge.com
