This past Thursday, Pomegranate 7 Up was produced in limited run for the Holiday season. It should show up in stores anytime as long as the run passes the final lab runs after it's standard 3 day hold period.
If you like POM brand products and you like Cherry 7 Up you should like this.
If you don't like Pomegranate then don't even bother.
No plans for a diet version to be produced yet.

Sounds delicious, I can't wait. I remember as a kid when Cherry 7-Up seemed like the new thing, and my brother and I would drink no other pop for months...

Whoa, very cool. I'm assuming this is going to be a national thing, so I should be able to find it at my local grocery store.

Why hasn't there been any type of ad campaign though? And there's zero information about it on 7Up's website.

Can someone post pictures? I can't get to the grocery store for another day or two, but I'd like to know what the bottle looks like.

Speaking of holiday labels, I spotted Canada Dry and 7Up 2 liters with holiday graphics in my recent travels.

I think this flavor has the potential to do pretty well, especially after the seeming success of last winter's Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash.

I've never had Canada Dry, any good?

IMO
Canada Dry is good for a Big Three soda pop.
I enjoy it as a nice change from my Pepsi binges. LOL
C.D. is NOT great, I would rate it as a B List soda pop.
Non the less, I like to pick up a fridge pack every now
and then. Poured over crushed ice, CD is very refreshing.

I found 2 liters of the pomegranate 7Up today in Maryland, produced by Honickman Canada Dry/Pepsi in Pennsauken NJ. Produced last Wednesday.

I would almost bet that South Georgia Beverage will not pick this stuff up, I can't remember the last time they picked up anything seasonal. I'll have to ride up to Newnan to see if the Atlanta-based DPSU has it.

I've had the chance to try this when 7-Up sales rep brought me a sample.

It tasted kind of bland, not very sweet either (though 31g sugar per serving).

Maybe it's because I had high expectation of this product, but the pomegranate flavor didn't really stand out. It had more pomegranate aftertaste than the fruit taste itself.

I'm still going to bring in this product for the holiday since it's an in & out item, and let the customers decide whether this is a hit or miss. It should display nice as a pallet drop with the regular 7-Up.

I tried this product at slightly closer to room temperature, so the taste may've taken a toll from this.

This kind of goes along with what fusion mentioned a couple posts up. In a recent Pibb hunt, I noticed that the Foodland in Grantsville, MD had the Pomegranate 7Up. I didn't notice it anywhere else, though. I will have to keep an eye out to see if Western PA gets it.

Saw this tonight in a Giant Eagle in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. Picked up a bottle, haven't tried it yet.

It was a 2 ltr. This is the only pack size they have available for launch at the moment.

We've shipped the POM 7UP up to Atlanta for the SeaBev Territories, you should check around there, or pop down to North Florida.

Right before the first batching and for the kick off meeting they had 20 oz samples (plain label most likely from the DPSU labs) so they're out there in very limited quantities for salesmen, etc...

[QUOTE=ilikesoda;358558]found it today it ft lauderdale in 2 liters-- enjoy the picQUOTE]

What's the code on the bottle. There was some that had the sweetner screwed up and some other that had the carb messed up as well. (had a couple new batchers and lab techs, the usual girl was on vacation) If it doesn't taste right, take it back...they had to bring some back, they were really nasty, but the right formulation tastes pretty descent IMHO (especially in a mixed drink i.e. a "Sweet Georgia Peach" if ya haven't tasted it, look it up and try it-YUM!).

I found it in South Georgia Beverage area (here in Columbus, GA) by Choice USA Beverage in NC.

I like how the bottom is easy for sales.
Nice facings of the flavors.

{What's the flavor between Squirt and A&W(not sure if that's A&W)?

Not available for me here in NorCal =(

That looks like Diet A&W? The logo looks to be the same with A&W, just different color. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. It's an awesome display though.

Yep, that would be Diet A&W. The 20oz are of Dr.Pepper if I remember correctly.

If you have a Publix around you, I got a 2-liter for 1.39 - 1.00 coupon = 39 cents. Deal of the day.

I finally got my hands on some yesterday. I tried it last night and I really liked it - even better than the Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, which I enjoyed a lot. I think I like the pomegranate flavor a little better because it's slightly less tart than the cranberry. I just wish they had this in cans - oh well!

I finally was able to pick up a bottle of this 7Up today at the Walmart in Indiana, PA. (Yes, that is the Walmart where the Pepsi guy punched the Coke guy... shameful.)

The taste is subtle, but very good. It would be better if it was sweetened with sugar as opposed to HFCS, but it is still very good. I enjoy this as well as the Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. It is nice to have unique flavored soda pops for the holidays. I only hope 7up brings this back next year or comes up with another special 7up. (Although I do wish they would bring back 7Up Gold for the holidays. I recall that being very good as it kinda tasted like a cross between cola and a spice cake.)

I picked up some Pomegrante 7Up last night at Wal-Mart in Muskogee, OK.

It tasted pretty good.

I found this a week or so ago in the Chicago area. Very much enjoyed it.


http://www.bevreview.com/wp-content/image_pomegranate7up2.jpg (http://www.bevreview.com/2007/12/04/review-pomegranate-7up/)

It did taste quite a bit like Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, but I probably liked it better. Must have been the lemon lime base and my personal preferences. Interestingly, didn't really taste much like pomegranate. Did anyone else really feel that flavor came through or was it just very subtle? Either way, it was pretty good, in my opinion. :)

I never had a chance to try this last year. Today I was shopping around Ft. Collins, CO and spotted Pomegranate 7-Up in 2-litres. Bottled on 10/24/08. How many markets will get it this year?

Oh, I bought one, thought it was pretty good!

OKC more than likely will not get any this year as there is still a ton of it floating around from last year that has never been picked up. I even had a rep tell me that as long as the bottle was still hard from carbonation it was in date regardless of what the code said.
