Keurig Launches Kold

The much talked-about Keurig Kold unit is now available to consumers following the official launch of the cold home beverage maker Monday night in New York City.

Best known for its line of single-serve coffeemakers, Kold is touted by the company as the first beverage system that allows consumers to freshly make cold sparkling and still beverages at home at the push of a button. The initial flavor assortment includes familiar soft drink brands from Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper Snapple Group.

“Keurig has redefined the way consumers enjoy coffee and tea in their homes and offices and today with the launch of Keurig Kold, we’re embarking on a new journey that will change the way consumers enjoy cold beverages at home,” said Brian Kelley, president and CEO of Keurig.

The Kold pods ($4.49-$4.99 SRP for a four-count box) along with additional drinkmaker accessories, such as storage carousels and a variety of specialty-designed glassware, are also now available.
