FIZZIES, the effervescent drink tablets that were a huge hit in the 1950's -1970's have returned as a healthier, great-tasting and most importantly, fun beverage that kids love to make and those young at heart will enjoy once again. Packed with Vitamin C, the new FIZZIES Drink Tablets contain all the magic of making your own fruity, fizzy drink by simply dropping a FIZZIES tablet into a cool glass of water and watching it fizz before you enjoy drinking it.
FIZZIEs were remove from the market in the early 1970's when the FDA banned the the artificial sweeteners used to make Fizzies, called cyclamates. Cyclamates were an essential part of making Fizzies tablets, and the scientist didn't know how to reformulate. Retailers were allowed to sell out their remaining stock through 1970, but after that Fizzies disappeared. In 1995, some of the original makers of Fizzies contacted effervescent contract manufatures Amerilab Technologies in Plymouth Minnesota, hoping the scientist there could reformulate Fizzies using aspartame. Fizzies were back on the market, but their re-emergence was short-lived, and Fizzies filed for bankruptcy in 1996.
In 2005 Amerilab purchased the formula for FIZZIEs and put them back on the market!
