Introduced in 1995, Gold Emblem was one of the first private brand food lines
created by a major drugstore chain. Since that initial launch, the line has
delivered great taste, uncompromising quality and unparalleled value for
consumers and today is the number one brand in cookies, candy and nuts sold at
CVS/pharmacy. Updates to the newly re-launched line include a contemporary
identity and package re-design that embodies the commitment to meeting a very
high taste standard, as well as a refined taste-test approval process used to
evaluate every item that is branded with the Gold Emblem name.

"At CVS/pharmacy, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality
store brand product lines at a great value. With this in mind, we have
reintroduced our Gold Emblem brand with enhanced ingredients, new recipes and an
updated design and packaging," said  Judy Sansone, Senior Vice President of
Merchandising for CVS/pharmacy.  "As part of our ongoing effort to exceed our
customers' expectations, we have also incorporated an in-depth taste-testing
process for each item within the Gold Emblem line."  

All of the new Gold Emblem items are held to a set of new ingredient guidelines
and each product is evaluated using a rigorous process that includes both an
in-house taste panel and an external third-party panel of professional
taste-testers to provide specific feedback on each item. Gold Emblem is also
committed to helping shoppers make well-informed choices that help them achieve
their own personal health goals with enhanced packaging that incorporates key
nutritional information on the front of each item.  

CVS/pharmacy stands behind the quality of all products included in any of its
exclusive lines, including Gold Emblem, and offers a 100 percent money-back
guarantee to ensure customer satisfaction. Now available at more than 7,400
locations, customers will have the luxury of picking up high-quality snacks just

and improved Gold Emblem products  online  on CVS.com.
