Healthy drinks have always led the way in healthy vending machine products. After all, what’s healthier than water? Water and Non-Carbonated Juice are the longest running healthy drink categories, and their choices continue to increase. In addition to traditional non-carbonated juices such as orange, pineapple, mango and coconut, more exotic fruits such as quince, goji berry and guanabana are appearing on the healthy vending drink market.
These exotic fruit flavors are appearing in juices as well as in flavored waters – a continually growing category in healthy drinks. Many brands lead the carbonated soda category as far as popularity, several have a wider variety of flavors. The Non-Dairy Smoothies and Tea & Coffee categories have also seen substantial growth in the healthy drinks class. Healthy energy drinks currently make up the smallest section of the healthy vending drink category.
