Labor Day: no work, no school, the perfect way to top off the sultry days of summer. But is that all? At Tsamma, we love to get our feet wet with a little bit of history on what the holiday is all about - and what we've been working hard on for YOU.
First the history. In the late 1800s, municipal ordinances were passed in several states nationwide to secure a day off for laborers. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first bill to become law was passed by Oregon in 1887. By 1894, 24 states had adopted the holiday officially in honor of workers. Later that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September a legal holiday in D.C. and the territories. Labor Day, in essence, pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers.
So today, we wanted to share our 'labor of love' that pays tribute to YOU, Tsamma-lover. We know that yearlong, you work hard for your family and yourself. Each day presents a new challenge, and Tsamma is here to help keep you healthy, hydrated and happy. We’ve quite literally put watermelon juice on the map through our rapid nationwide expansion. Tsamma will always be a watermelon based juice line made with our farm-fresh melons - but today we're thrilled to share our hard work to expand the line. Introducing… Tsamma Pink Guava and Tsamma Spinach + Kale.
Tsamma Guava juice has a flavor that rivals Tsamma original with the perfect tropical aroma and flavor of fresh pink guava. The blend of Watermelon + Pink Guava creates a lycopene powerhouse unlike any juice on the market. Fight off free radicals while your taste buds rejoice. Guava is a low-calorie food, rich in fiber, vitamin A, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and vitamin C. Vitamin A is essential for maintaining healthy skin, while fruits high in carotene can protect against lung and oral cavity cancers.
Tsamma Spinach + Kale is a juice category game changer, where ‘get your greens’ in a bottle is at the forefront. You know the stuff you’re supposed to drink to fuel your body with super foods and phytonutrients – while pinching your nose because drinking grass flavored liquid is not enjoyable? Enter Tsamma Spinach + Kale! Our unique blend of fresh watermelon, spinach and kale juice provides the hydrating nutrients from watermelon with added nutrition from spinach and kale. Most importantly, it’s absolutely delicious! Tsamma Spinach + Kale contains one full serving (1 cup) of spinach and kale. Spinach is packed with vitamins, protein, potassium and fiber, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits from phytonutrients. In lab experiments, spinach extracts have been shown to slow down cell division in gastric adenocarcinomas and skin papillomas. As for kale, research has found at least 45 different antioxidant flavonoids that are provided in measurable amounts by this powerful, leafy-green vegetable. This broad spectrum of flavonoid antioxidants is most likely the reason for kale's reputation as a cancer-fighting food.
Tsamma is available nationwide at The Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Costco, HEB, Schnuck’s and soon to be Kroger, to name a few retailers.
