Can anyone find Aruba Jam anymore?

I was a huge fan, but now I haven't seen any for about a month and a half now.

An open letter to Coke:
Fine, Coke, fine. But if you HAVE taken my Aruba Jam from me, then you best crank out a new flavor quick before I get violent.


SEV :mad:

I bought some 1.5 weeks ago.

Well I would suggest getting Tropical Sprite Remix because it is the exact same thing but they probably don't make that anymore either.

It's funny, I had noticed Aruba Jam on the shelf a day or two ago and thought, "That stuff's still around?" I hadn't even really thought of AJ, much less had a desire to drink some, since shortly after it came out.

Oh damn it! Now I won't have the chance to try it in my trip in January 2006...

I dunno, maybe DC and Virginia are the first states to have it withdrawn?

Here we were supposed to drop it long ago, and we did in 2 liters and 20 ounce. We still have it in 12 packs though.

Yes pal! and IMO it was really one of the greatest sodas I've tried in the United States, I tried it in my new years eve vacation in 2003 (I still have the empty bottle), and also in Mexico I had the chance of trying Sprite Tropical Remix for awhile because of a great summer promotion in 2004, when I bought a 600 ml Sprite for 5 pesos and an extra peso, I received a packet with a liquid concentrate (there were 3 different packets: tropical, berry and fussion). I poured the content of the tropical packet in the Sprite bottle and shaked it a little. As a result tasted exactly like the american Sprite Remix, it was really GOOD too! and also the berry one... maybe aruba jam tastes like the fussion one...

Well Aruba Jam tastes a lot like Tropical Sprite Remix so I'm sure that you will love it if you have a chance to try it. Good luck it finding some when you come up here.

I'm trying to remember when they switch out the Remix flavors.. is it May? Maybe they'll axe AJ a little earlier, and come out with Cherry Remix, which I have been wanting all along.

Note: I don't know what the next Remix flavor is going to be! This post is just wishful thinking.

I still think the best of Spirtes remixes was the Berry Clear.

Man, that stuff was good!

Mike Yes I agree. That was definitely my favorite. I wish their next flavor would be tangerine or orange. That would be good.

I think we usually switch our flavor in April. Of course it always takes a while to get the old flavor out of the ststem (especially Berryclear)

As unoriginal as it would be, a cherry Sprite Remix would be fantastic.

Good idea, fusion.

i tried Aruba Jam - i liked it better then the other sprite remix - but overall anything with sprite tastes like crap - in my opinion

The 2 new Frescas have taken over the 12pk space for Aruba Jam in my store. We still sell the 2L bottles of it, but who knows how long that will last.

That hurts, man.

A diet over a full-calorie.

Ouch.

But I won't deny that the new Frescas are good.

Cherry was one of the flavor hits they did. There was a grape, that didn't mix well with Sprite. I don't anticipate seeing a Grape ReMix.

We also cut down on Remix to make room for the Fresca flavors.

Fusion,
Just wondering how has Fresca being moving?
Is Fresca Black Cherry been lagging in sales?
