Anyone seen these yet? I saw them at 7-11 this afternoon. They only had Watermelon and Green Apple. tried the Watermelon. It seemed a little more sour flavored than the candy. I wonder if these drinks will stick around, or will they disappear in a couple years like Bubble Yum Soda.

7-11s here have them, too. I had the Green Apple. It's about the same as the candy.

The bottle I picked up was distributed by Elizabeth Beverage Company, LLC of New Castle, Delaware (that's about 15-20 minutes from me).

I've never heard of the company. I assume it has something to do with Honickman Canada Dry's facility in New Castle... seeing how his production facility up in Pennsauken NJ was who bottled it (code HJ).

Saw them in Chicago last week. Picked up an apple one for my kid. He hasn't tried it yet.

Lifesavers had a soda a few years back, wasn't that good. What's the sugar content in the Jolly Rancher soda? I bet it's really high!

I had the watermelon. It does taste like the candy. It made my tummy upset. Can you imagine drinking a Jolly Rancher? Well now you can.

I personally think when candies do drinks as line extensions, the drink is more geared for kids. Although some of them are pretty good.. They'd be too "kid like", and sweet for me.

I haven't come across this either. I'd really like to try one though.

I saw an Ad in USA Today for Starburst drinks.
