Shaq Debuts Line of Cream Soda

Shaq Debuts Line of Cream Soda


The basketball star moves from the court to the beverage business

AriZona Iced Tea launched Shaquille O’Neal’s line of cream soda at 7-Eleven convenience stores last week, according to a recent BuzzFeed article.

Cleverly named "Soda Shaq," O’Neal’s beverage flavors mirror that of an old-school ice cream truck and include Blueberry Cream Soda, Orange Cream Soda, Strawberry Cream Soda, and Vanilla Cream Soda. They're advertised as providing less calories than competing cream sodas and containing all-natural ingredients, but it is a little unsettling that the cans state they only contain "1% Juice" — where does the rest of that blueberry flavor come from?

The drinks come in the typical 24-ounce sized AriZona cans and boast the slogan "A Big Can for the Big Man," playing off O’Neal’s renowned height and displaying various images of his smiling face. While O’Neal’s height may be an advantage on the basketball court, perhaps it may not be so beneficial in cream soda packaging, as 24 ounces is a lot of sugary sweetness to ingest. Maybe Shaq should stick to the court…


Invoke

Described by one pretty important radio guy as “not classical. but not not classical”, bowed and fretted string quartet invoke continues to successfully dodge even the most valiant attempts at genre classification. The multi-instrumental band’s other not-nots encompass traditions from across America, including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, and minimalism. invoke weaves all of these traditions together to create truly unique contemporary string quartet repertoire, written by and for the group.

Currently Young Professional String Quartet in Residence at the University of Texas at Austin, invoke has also been selected as Artists in Residence at Strathmore, the Emerging Young Artist Quartet at Interlochen, and the Fellowship String Quartet at Wintergreen Performing Arts. In 2016, the band received First Prize in the Savvy Musician in ACTION Chamber Competition, and was chosen as Finalist in the Concert Artist Guild Competition.

invoke has shared the stage with some of the most acclaimed chamber groups in the country, including the Enso Quartet and the U.S. Army Field Band. Other highlights include a weeklong residency at the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Institutes, and appearances as part of the South Florida Symphony’s Summer Chamber series and the NextNOW Festival at University of Maryland.

invoke’s 2015 debut release “Souls in the Mud” begins with original works that conjure images of America, including the fast-paced opening track Travesty and The Trace (inspired by bourbon whiskey). The third and title track, Souls in the Mud, is an American transformation of a 16th century motet featuring banjo, mandolin and a bluegrass-influenced boot-stompin’ finale. The EP is rounded out by invoke accompanying a historic recording of a haunting traditional English ballad and two compositions by prolific American composer Danny Clay.

In addition to “Souls in the Mud”, invoke has performed and recorded numerous world premieres, including works by Joseph C. Phillips Jr., Armando Bayolo, and Geoff Sheil. The quartet’s recording credits appear on bassist/composer Ethan Foote’s solo album “Fields Burning”, singer/songwriter Marian McLaughlin’s “Spirit House”, and jazz/soul singer Rochelle Rice’s EP “Wonder”, and many more.

Equally at home in a collaborative setting, invoke has appeared with musicians from genres at complete opposite ends of the spectrum - from chamber rock powerhouse San Fermin, to indie sensation Never Shout Never, to DC beatboxer/rapper/spoons virtuoso Christylez Bacon.

invoke endorses the Buffalo Trace line of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Soda Shaq cream sodas, and Kirkland brand everything.

Chewy Macadamia Nut Cookies
(Makes three dozen)

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  1. Cream the butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer on a medium speed until fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, cream of tartar and cinnamon and mix well.
  4. Stir in the macadamia nuts. Chill for two hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Coat an insulated cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared cookie sheet.

When preparing bakery items such as cookies, here’s a tip to enhance the flavor intensity of your product: cream the vanilla into the butter or shortening and sugar first. This step encapsulates the vanilla and helps prevent flavor loss in low mass/low moisture/high heat cookies.

What's the difference between the original Coke Zero and its new rendition that replaced it this year? "The upgraded Coke Zero is called Coke Zero Sugar, and it's made with an even better-tasting recipe that delivers real Coca-Cola taste with zero sugar and zero calories," the company said. Well, we still don't like it because it contains sketchy additives like caramel color and the metabolism-wrecking artificial sweetener aspartame.


Shaq debuts menu for new Las Vegas restaurant Big Chicken

Shaquille O’Neal has revealed the full menu for his new restaurant Big Chicken, which is set to open at 4480 Paradise Roadnear the Hard Rock Hotel on Oct. 23.

Shaquille O’Neal has revealed the full menu for his new restaurant Big Chicken, which is set to open at 4480 Paradise Road near the Hard Rock Hotel on Oct. 23.

The house specialty will be crispy chicken sandwiches served on brioche buns, although guests will be able to order them grilled. The menu offers six varieties, ranging from a basic M.D.E. (short for Most Dominant Ever) that comes topped with pickle slaw and signature Shaq sauce, to the Big Aristotle, which comes with Muenster cheese, crispy fried onions, bacon and a sweet and smoky Memphis barbecue sauce. The most exotic version may be the Shaq Fu BBQ, which comes with kimchi, pork belly and Korean barbecue sauce.

The menu also includes sliders, chicken strips, sides and desserts. The beverage selection includes a special Shaq soda designed by Pepsi, shakes, specialty soft drinks, wine and a variety of draft beer including selections from local brewers like Crafthaus, Joseph James, Banger Brewing, Able Baker and Lovelady Brewing.

The basketball legend is reluctant to recommend a favorite for the menu.

“Just order what you like. Everybody’s different. The other day I tried the chicken sandwich with ham and cheese — really good. I would never (make) that, even though I’ve been doing it all my life eating cordon bleu.”

He did say that he doesn’t plan on eating the banana pudding ice cream sandwiches his chef-partners, Matt Silverman and Matt Piekarski, created.

“I know banana pudding. And you stop right there. One of my chefs came up with the great idea of banana pudding ice cream. And I probably will never try it. But I had to say to myself, ‘OK, it ain’t all about you, buddy.’”

A grand opening party is planned for the 23rd, and O’Neal says it will be a star-studded event.

“A lot of big-time people there. A lot of famous people. A lot of regular people. A lot of just great people. Red carpet, music, party — it’s gonna be one big party.”

When pressed for specifics on what celebrities are on the guest list, he opted not to tell.

“I’ve got some names, but I don’t want to say any names in case they don’t show up.”

You can follow Shaq and his chefs as they tour the country preparing for the opening of Big Chicken on their Facebook Watch! reality TV show “Big Chicken Shaq.” He promises there’s a lot more to the show than just food.

“We have alligators, crocodiles, chasing chicken. I make these two (chefs) play a seven games series, funniest thing ever. We do a lot of things.”


Shaq Fu Radio News 5 Shaq Endorsements You Might Have Forgotten About

Careful readers of the ShaqFu Radio blog know that just earlier this week, we posted about the Big Man’s Big Income for last year. Even with his NBA career long over, Shaq continues to bring in solid cash from his commercials, endorsements and investments. Today… something a little different. A quick roundup of a few of the products O’Neal got involved with that were – shall we say? – not quite stellar successes.

Shoes and clothes? You betcha. What superstar NBA player (or former player) doesn’t have that? But for O’Neal, it’s been soooo much more. Along with guys like Michael Jordan and LeBron James, Shaq is a brand spokesman, TV commercial pitch-guy, and the “face” of many different products, from pizza to car insurance.

The Big Man and Mr. Big (the candy bar). Created by Cadbury (yes, the company that does those yummy Easter eggs), the Mr. Big featured kid-favorite ingredients chocolate, caramel, peanuts, wafers and rice snaps. It all added up to a candy bar with a gooey center with a little bit of snap. There he was, right on the wrapper! Still, it seemed the treat never really caught on, and it didn’t last long on convenience store shelves. If you’re really interested, we’ve seen a few (still!) for sale on the ‘net, so if you’re looking for a 20 year-old taste, head on over to Mr. Google and search for Mr. Big. (See the video below).

Real students of Shaq’s interests will know that O’Neal has always had an interest in martial arts, and that turned into a product as well. How about that ShaqFu video game? Back in 2014, we saw the debut of Shaqdown 2 (yes, there was a Shaqdown 1…).

Strange? Yes! Popular? Not so much. The fight / kung fu game featured not only Shaq, but also the on-screen likenesses of Muhammad Ali and actor / martial arts star Jet Li. Even though video games were then – and still are – huge money makers, this one didn’t really get big-time attention.

Everyone knows O’Neal is huge in the food and restaurant business. (Papa John’s Pizza, Five Guys Burgers, Krispy Kreme Donuts, etc., etc.) One of his not-so-big deals came when he tried to get into the beverage game in 2013. Partnering with the Arizona Iced Tea company, Shaq helped produce “Shaq Soda.”

The drinks were a line of all-natural cream sodas hoping to grab people with both delicious flavor and a recognizable name behind them. For some reason (who knows what consumers are thinking. ), this one didn’t catch on either. But again, internet to the rescue. Word is there are a few unopened cans of Shaq Soda available out there. Recently, a box of four unopened cans was spotted for sale for $ 55 .

For some products, Shaq has been more of a promoter and spokesman, without too much influence on the actual product itself. Shaq was a big endorser and fan of the Power Balance bracelet, which promised those who wore it increased balance, strength, flexibility, and energy flow. O’Neal enthusiastically endorsed the product, even though tests showed it didn’t really do anything.

Another Shaq-fav was more of an adult product: vodka. In partnership with the brand Devotion Vodka, the Shaq Luv sub-brand was created. It was a unique sugar-and-gluten-free experience for those looking to take an edge off (in a more healthy way?). Again, a short-lived product that never really took off.

Even with a few glitches, Shaq is still making big waves in business and investing, with a track record very similar to his time on the courts – lots more winners than losers.

Wacky beverages are fast-food's big summer lure

Some things go hand-in-hand with summer: Sunburns. Tacky bikinis. And wacky drinks.

This summer is no exception – particularly in the wacky drink arena, with fast-food giants rolling out their most unusual beverages of the year. Summer is the busy season for the $175 billion fast-food industry, so this is when it works overtime to lure-in thirsty consumers hoping folks not only buy lots of high-margin drinks, but load up on food, too.

The trick: offer outside-the-box beverages. Like Sonic's Peanut Butter & Bacon Milkshake Arby's upcoming Salted Caramel Shake or even Dunkin' Donuts' Mint Chocolate Chip Iced Coffee. "In summer, it's a lot easier to pull people in with cold drinks than images of hot burgers," says Gregg Rapp, a menu consultant.

Drink trends for summer 2013:

Peanut butter & . Sonic has a new Peanut Butter & Bacon shake. "Customers try it the first time out of curiosity," says spokesman Patrick Lenow. "What we find is, they genuinely like it and try again."

Not to be out peanut-buttered, on July 1, Smashburger rolls out a Peanut Butter & Jelly Shake. The concept – made with Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream, strawberry syrup and crushed Nutter Butter Cookies -- came from customers, says Stacie Lange, senior vice president.

Sweet & salty. In late July, Arby's will debut a Salted Caramel Shake because it "rose to the top in tests," says Robin Seward, vice president of brand marketing.

Soda Shaq. LeBron isn't doing a soda – yet. But 7-Eleven this week begins its national roll-out of Soda Shaq – a new line of four AriZona Beverages natural cream sodas named for pro basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal.

Weird iced coffees. Dunkin' Donuts has rolled out two wacky iced coffees: Mint Chocolate Chip and Old Fashioned Butter Pecan. Both are made with Baskin- Robbins ice cream – the first time Dunkin' has partnered with its sister brand on a coffee, says John Costello, president of global marketing.

S'mores 'R Us. Dairy Queen froze the campfire feeling with S'mores Frozen Hot Chocolate. The drink blends cocoa fudge, crushed graham crackers, DQ's slushy Arctic Rush and vanilla soft serve. "It's one of the biggest summer beverages ever for us," says Barry Westrum, marketing chief at American Dairy Queen.

Orange-o-rama. Starbucks goes totally orange this week, rolling out Valencia Orange Refereshers and Orange Spice Iced Coffee. "We noticed a trend in orange this year," explains Sandra Stark, vice president of blended beverages.

Carl's Jr. has an Orange Cream Shake that it's brought back. There's another cult-favorite, cereal-infested shake that marketing chief Brad Haley says it might bring back some day: Cap'N Crunch Shake.

Sweet on Alcohol

The mixer joins a crowded adult beverage market, one with notable competition in the area of sweet flavors. Liberum Capital notes the U.S. has seen a candy- and confectionery-flavored vodka boom, with flavored varieties of the drinks accounting for more than a fifth of the consumption of vodka. Considering vodka accounts for a third of all spirits sold in the U.S., this is no small market.

It is, however, a trending one.

Technomic finds 52% of consumers surveyed (1,000 respondents over the age of 21) order a mixed drink with vodka away from home at least once a month. The market researcher’s online Digital Resource Information Knowledgebase (DRINK) database finds flavored vodka accounts for nearly 30% of total vodka volume, a market share that is continuing to grow. Beam Inc.’s Effen Vodka added a Salted Caramel Vodka Phillips Distilling Co. introduced a candy bar-flavored vodka Svedka Vodka has Svedka Orange Cream Pop-and Svedka Strawberry Colada flavored vodkas -- as manufacturers incorporate a variety of sweet flavors to separate their vodka from the pack. However, the surge in vodka flavors is not limited to sweet: chili peppers, bacon, smoked salmon and even rose have all accentuated the libation.

Nevertheless, those sweeter flavors seem to stand out from the crowded marketplace. In addition to the Effen expansion, Beam also added five new flavored vodkas for fall and winter under its Pinnacle brand: Caramel Apple, Peachberry Cobbler, Pecan Pie, Salted Caramel and the limited-edition Peppermint Bark joined the 30 flavored vodkas in the brand’s portfolio.

As Jason Dolenga, senior director of vodka with Beam Inc., explained in launching Effen Salted Caramel Vodka, “When deciding to expand the Effen Vodka portfolio, we wanted to ensure that our next innovation complemented the brand’s existing unique and modern flavors. Consumers are looking for sweet and savory flavor profiles.” The Salted Caramel Vodka promises a delicate combination of sweet and savory the sweetness is enhanced with a touch of salt. It joins a line which includes Cucumber Vodka, Black Cherry Vodka and Raspberry Vodka.

The flavored alcohol segment is awash with sweeter takes on the traditional tipple, and with good reason. In introducing its candy bar-flavored vodka in early 2013, UV Candy Bar, Phillips Distilling noted sales of its dessert-flavored offerings, a portfolio which includes UV Cake, UV Chocolate Cake and UV Whipped, had increased 81% in the year prior. Nevertheless, UV Candy Bar promises a vodka unlike any other, one infused with all-natural milk chocolate, caramel and peanut butter flavors. Flavored vodkas may not be new (they have been on the U.S. market since the 1950s), but manufacturers have certainly devoted their formulation efforts to devising unique takes on the concept, of late.

Take Absolut’s initiative to devise the flavors of various cities in its vodka. In the fall, the Pernod Ricard SA brand introduced Absolut Chicago, the seventh in its line of “city-inspired flavors,” which began with the mango and black pepper vodka in honor of New Orleans in 2007. What flavors constitute the city of Chicago? According to Absolut Chicago, it is notes of rosemary, olive and thyme. As Technomic notes, flavored vodkas represented 28% of total vodka volume in 2012, with 21 new vodka flavors introduced in the first quarter of 2013 alone.
