Rutter's Spiked Tea Cooler

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Rutter’s announced a partnership with Lancaster Brewing Co. to create Rutter’s Spiked Tea Cooler. The launch marks the second product collaboration between Rutter’s and Lancaster Brewing Co. and will be available exclusively at Rutter’s’ 46 beer locations in Pennsylvania, while supplies last.

The Spiked Tea Cooler is inspired by the Rutter’s Tea Cooler, made by Rutter’s Dairy, and is a classic combination of tea and lemonade. The spiked version is brewed using the same ingredients and has an ABV of 5.5%.

“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Lancaster Brewing Co. by launching our second private label beer product with Rutter’s Spiked Tea Cooler,” said Sean Pfeiff, Rutter’s senior category manager. “The great customer response and enthusiasm we saw from our Chocolate Milk Stout, released for a limited time in November 2021, made the decision to work together again a no-brainer.”

The Rutter’s Spiked Tea Cooler will be available in late May and will be sold in a four-pack of 16-ounce cans for $10.99.

7‑Eleven is celebrating Memorial Day with free pizza for new 7NOW customers, according to the company. First-time users of the 7NOW delivery app can use code PIZZA to redeem one free pie from a variety of pizza options with any delivery order.

Meanwhile, Chester’s Chicken, is adding sweet Honey Stung Chicken Sandwich and Honey Stung Chicken Bites to its menu, available now through Labor Day. The sandwich and bites feature Chester’s signature specially marinated, double-breaded and fried fresh chicken “sauced and tossed” in Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Sauce.

Honey Stung Chicken follows the spring rollout of Chester’s new Hot N Spicy Poultry Rub, which, when paired with Chester’s Hot N Spicy Breading, increases heat and flavor on its Bone-In Chicken and Super Tenders.

“We’ve already staked claim that we’ve been making the juiciest, crunchiest chicken on the planet for decades,” said William Culpepper, vice president of marketing, Chester’s Chicken. “We’re now turning up the heat with our new extra spicy seasoning as well as fan-favorite Honey Stung Chicken, available this summer only to add a kick to the road trip season.”

This marks the first time the Honey Stung Chicken Sandwich will be available at all Chester’s locations nationwide after a successful launch at Love’s Travel Stops in summer 2020.
