Will Grumpy Cat coffee drinks turn that frown upside down?
Maybe a jolt of caffeine will take some of the grouch out of Grumpy Cat.
A new line of iced coffee drinks branded with the feline’s famous frown will be available in stores and online beginning in September, according to the cat’s website.
The Grumpy Cat Grumppuccino will come in three flavors – coffee, mocha and vanilla.
“It’s awfully good,” is the slogan for the drinks.
The famous cat (whose real name is Tardar Sauce) is a popular meme and an Internet sensation, with more than 1 million followers on Facebook. The kitty also has a solid Twitter fan-base, where the animal’s handlers are offering followers a 10 percent discount for pre-sale purchases beginning next week.
“No price per bottle yet but will be comparable to what's out in the market,” said Ben Lashes, the cat’s agent.
Earlier this year, Lashes helped negotiate the sale of a movie option for Grumpy Cat to Broken Road Productions, which has released comedies including "Paul Blart Mall Cop" and "13 Going on 30."
