'This drink took longer than usual to develop. We...ve been working with stevia leaves for years,' said Seth Goldman, company president and CEO, in a press release. 'First, it wasn...t allowed as an ingredient in beverages, and then once it gained FDA approval, it was hard to formulate a drink that met our goals for taste and function. But after a lot of hard work, we...ve surprised ourselves with how delicious it tastes.'
