He highlighted that CWAY’s foray into the Carbonated Soft Drink (CSD) market with Fizzy Apple Drink is a response to the discerning consumers’ desire for a premium apple-flavored beverage that tantalizes their taste buds and delivers the essence of apple with a delightful fizz, in line with the brand’s tagline – “Taste the Fizz.”
Towing the same line, Deputy Marketing Director of CWAY, Samuel O.

He mentioned that the Fizzy Apple Drink triumphed in a blind taste test, with an impressive 69% of respondents expressing a preference for it. “We conducted a blind test and 69% of the respondents said they preferred the Fizzy Apple drink. The truth is when you place the Fizzy Apple-flavoured drink with other competing brands in the market; know that 69% percent would prefer Fizzy Apple drink.”
Akinrimisi highlighted the uniqueness of Fizzy Apple Drink as a refreshing fruit-flavored beverage designed to deliver an exceptional taste experience with every sip, balancing sweetness and apple flavor to perfection, while reaffirming CWAY’s mission to provide the Nigerian market with an authentic taste at an affordable price while maintaining the highest quality standards. “Nigeria is a country known for its fun, vibrancy and energy, and it is our privilege to introduce a brand that enhances the moments of Nigerian consumers,” he noted.
Recognizing the competitive landscape of the fruit-flavored carbonated soft drink category, the Brand Manager, Segun Obe, shed light on the key drivers of success for Fizzy Apple Drink. These include a competitive price point, larger volume content, appealing packaging, and an unparalleled taste that sets Fizzy Apple apart from other offerings in the market.
Explaining the origin of the name “Fizzy,” Obe stated, “Before finalizing the name and the product’s visual identity, we engaged with consumers to ensure we created a product that truly encapsulates the essence and image of the brand. Change is a constant in life, and our expansion signifies our growth as a business. We recognize the need for a carbonated drink that provides a cool, affordable option in Nigeria’s humid climate.”
