Abbott Expands ZonePerfect Nutrition Bar Line to Meet Demand for Dark Chocolate by Active, On-the-Go Consumers

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (NYSE: ABT) - Fueled by demand for nutritious, yet delicious snacks, Abbott today announced the introduction of three new flavors of ZonePerfect(R) Dark Chocolate Nutrition Bars - Dark Chocolate Caramel Pecan, Dark Chocolate Mocha and Dark Chocolate Cookies N' Creme.

Made with real cacao, ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Nutrition Bars provide balanced nutrition for busy people who refuse to sacrifice great taste. ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Nutrition Bars provide an excellent source of protein (12 grams per serving), antioxidants (Vitamins C & E, and Selenium), and a good source of 19 essential vitamins and minerals. They contain 180-190 calories per serving.

These bars will appear in new packaging, which features clean lines and ingredient graphics to match the bars' taste sensations inside. The new packaging will be rolled out to all ZonePerfect Nutrition Bar flavors over the coming months.

"Building on the successful launch of ZonePerfect Dark Chocolate Nutrition Bars last year, Abbott is introducing three more delectable flavors for consumers to enjoy," said Monica Hysell, Abbott Nutrition general manager and division vice president, Healthy Living. "Not only do these bars taste great and keep you fueled throughout the day, they also support an important cause. Purchases of ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars can help support music education in our schools through our partner, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation."

Nourishing Music in Our Schools

Through the end of the year, Abbott Nutrition is donating a portion of proceeds from ZonePerfect Nutrition Bar purchases to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation for a total of $120,000, to help the Foundation restore music programs in public schools.

Consumers can participate in the donation campaign by entering UPC codes from ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars online at www.zoneperfect.com/vh1/vh1-index.aspx. With every UPC code entered from a single bar, the makers of ZonePerfect will donate $0.05 and for every multi-pack carton UCP code, $0.50 will be donated to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, for a total donation of $120,000.

The fundraising effort is part of the ZonePerfect brand's "live.create." campaign, which supports the discovery of music and art at festivals nationwide. The ZonePerfect brand will be sampling its new dark chocolate flavors and hosting a live concert event in conjunction with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation at its upcoming tour stop -- Film Independent's 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival from June 18 - 28.
