View Full Version : Sunkist Cherry Limeade in bottles & cans

It looks like my store has started getting in a new flavor of Sunkist, Cherry Limeade. We've got 20 oz. bottles and 12-packs. I've only ever seen the stuff in a few fountain dispensers, never in bottles. I haven't been on the board for a long time, so i'm sorry if it's old news.

I think it's a little too cherry flavored, it needs a touch more lime. Other than that, it's pretty good stuff.

I saw it on the csabupc site a while back, but hadn't heard if it was out anywhere yet.

Is it carbonated?

The flavor profile fits the Southwest, Braum's and Sonic but their's is much more Lime with Cherry drink.

How interesting that it all started in OKC with a few fountain accounts. Pepsi in Oklahoma does a great job in fountain with this brand. Get one the next time you are at WinStar Casino

Now, I just drink ice tea for my caffeine fix. smile.gif I do occasionally break down and drink a soda. I had to try the Cherry Limeade. Next time I see the Dr Pepper stocker, I need to ask him how it's selling.

Nice flavor!

I've never seen anything other than Sunkist orange here is Colorado. I'll be on the look out.

It really depends on the area of the country and the space the local bottler has. Most indies don't have the sapce that a coke/pepsi bottlers does so they only have orange. A few pepsi bottlers like buffalo rock and pbv in north carolina have introduced 3-4 flavors.
