Does anyone know if Strawberry or Grape Crush comes in a can? I've seen Orange Crush in a can and 2-liter around these parts (south Mississippi) and have seen all three in bottle form but have yet to run across Strawberry or Grape in a can. Just curious.....

Outside of bottles, orange crush is limited. Other flavors of Crush are downright rare!

Chicago has Strawberry and Grape Crush fridge packs in the local grocery stores.

It has been probably ten years since crush was dropped around these parts. I remember we had full line up of grape, strawberry, orange both reg and diet, peach, fruit punch. Now all we have all the time is the 6pk glass orange. Strawberry and Grape are a rarity at best to find.

If I remember right, I have seen it in Central Illinois but that was a while back...

Oh... I was raised on Orange Crush. My first bottle was on Put In Bay around 1968. Cold glass bottle and real sugar.

Recently, Orange and Grape Crush have come back to my area, but only in 2L and 20oz bottles.

It doesn't sell too well...

Independant Beverage in Charlotte makes orange, grape, strawberry in cans that are distributed through Sundrop of Concord (NC).

Pepsi Mid-America (http://www.pepsimidamerica.com/consumer/pages/product_cat.php?ID=5) has those flavors as well - cans, 20 oz, 2L's. Found some of their stuff in NW Tennessee over the summer.

I saw Crush in a can only during the San Marcos Fair, there was Crush in 12 oz. cans on the Bimbo Vending Machines...

Looking at Pepsi Mid America's site, I see they have both Sierra Mist and 7Up...

In different parts of their territory. They have multiple franchises spanning a four state area.

They carry 7Up in their core area in Marion IL, but in areas where other bottlers had it prior to them, they carry Sierra Mist (and probably Slice before that).

To answer your question, yes, strawberry Crush does come in a can. I have Peach Crush, Pineapple Crush, Orange Crush, Strawberry Crush and I think Grape Crush in a can. They are available around parts of south Texas from time to time in certain grocery stores.

I actually found all 3 main crush flavors in 20oz for the first time in my metro area! Byerly's, a high end grocer, had them.

I saw it at Byerly's/Lund's but only in the deli section in single 20oz's - not in the regular pop section.

I can tell you that the strawberry sodas don't exist in my area.

I know that when both Tropicana Twister and Fanta launched here, they didn't include Strawberry, and the Grape for both brands went away.

Crush is now in my area, in Grape and Orange flavors, in 20oz bottles and 2 Liters, but it doesn't sell, and tastes bleh. I'll stick with Adirondack Orange, thank you very much. A lot cheaper, and very good.
