Is it available in most states?I found 12 0z's in one gas station in Salt Lake(Sinclair) and can only find 12 packs in walmart and Harmons in Ogden.So basically what i'm wondering is,if it is rare?

It is a rare soda. I have only seen cactus cooler in parts of CA (in SoCAl, but not seen in NorCal), NV, parts of AZ, UT, and parts of CO (in the mountains not on the front range) A very regional soda.
I really enjoy this soda, and I think it has a broad appeal. It is and orange and pineapple soda.

Is it made with some percentage of juice or is it all natural flavoring? It sounds very tasty.

Naw, it's artifical IIRC. But it is sooooo good. I remember, a few years back, Las Vegas did not have Cactus cooler, and my cousin and I drove all the way to Barstow CA to buy some. We cleaned out the Vons of their stock smile.gif
But then Vegas starting getting stocks of it.

Hey, GR, it's all over in the supermarkets here in the Salt Lake valley. I saw some at Albertson's just the other day.

I remember Cactus Cooler from when I was a small child growing up in southern California in the 1970s. My family moved to Oklahoma in 1980 and I have lived in many different parts of the country since (Pacific Northwest, Missouri, Texas, New York), but I have not seen Cactus Cooler :-(
