Hello,

I am new here. I found the site a few days ago and have enjoyed reading messages. It seems as though someone said Cherry Crush was going to start popping up sometime late this year but I have yet to see any. And what about Peach? I see it on the official Crush website but I've never seen it on the shelves. I'm so sick of all the same old, same old, same old from all these soda outfits. Orange, Grape, Strawberry. How very creative. I can't fathom that Crush goes national and rolls out the same old flavors seemingly EVERY company does. How about something different for crying out loud? It's so frustrating. :mad: Does anyone know if Cherry or Peach Crush will be available anytime soon?

Cherry Crush launches nationally on December 28, 2009. You may see it out a bit earlier depending on the market. I haven't heard anything about Peach. I think you might be able to get it in Canada. Not really sure about that.

Praise the Lord! I hope this is true but I have a feeling in California we won't see it. We seem to get the short end of the stick in sodas. Until recently I bought Cherry Crush in the 16 oz. bottles online but the bottles have been discontinued. If I walked into a store and saw Cherry Crush I think I'd faint. But hey, if we don't get Cherry Crush here at least we get those rare birds, Orange, Grape and Strawberry. :rolleyes:

I remember several years back we had Pineapple Crush in Modesto and it was good. We also had Pineapple Slice which was even better. I think we have Fanta Pineapple here and a generic called Stars and Stripes.

Cherry Crush 12 pack cans and 20oz are in Elmira, NY and Sayre, PA. Tastes good.

Available at all Farm Freshs by next week in 12oz can and 20oz bottle..available in 2liter till then..available in all food lions this week in 12oz can..20oz bottle and 2 liter.

Tried it for the first time and I must say...IT IS GREAT! I initially felt like it reminded me of WC pepsi then the aftertaste is what made me love it. Definately reminded me of cheerwine(which I love) but it honestly whiped the floor with cheerwine.

I found 20oz in eastern Maryland.. still waiting on cans.

It's probably been at least 7-8 years since I've had it. I'm glad they brought it back.

Not attempting free advertising. Merely mentioning it. There are many threads about sodas listed on eBay. I don't see the harm of saying I listed them.

Finally found this in both 20 oz. and 2 liters today. Wasn't sure what to expect as I've never had a straight-up cherry soda before, but this stuff is excellent. More Pepper-like than I thought it would be, but smooth and sweet enough to be clearly distinguishable. I guess you could say Cherry DP is like the halfway point between this and regular DP. Really great flavor, and I hope it sticks around.

I am so frustrated. Everyone seems to be getting Cherry Crush but it's still not here. :mad: I went to several grocery stores today and mini marts and nothing. Unless you count orange, strawberry and grape something, which I do not. :rolleyes:

I guess I'll have to be patient and hope it works it's way westward, but the pessimist in me says it won't happen.

The grape isn't new, although it's likely new to certain areas, or, in the case of Cincinnati, it's being reintroduced after a long absence.

No sign of the cherry here in Cincinnati yet--would really like to try that one.

12 packs at Acme here in Delaware.

tony, when they brought Crush out in this area, it was Orange, Diet Orange, Grape and Strawberry. 12 packs, 2 liters, and 20oz. Orange in 24 pack cubes as well.

Oh, and possible good news - I talked to a Canada Dry guy today, he said Cherry RC may come out in this area. Looks like DPS is finally paying attention to RC, with the recent makeover, and expansion of Cherry availability.

whotony...Back in 2005 when in DC, i decided to make a "what-the-heck" day trip to the PA border. I stopped at the store in Aston...That's where I first tried Strawberry Crush, and fell in love with it. Now I can't find it at all. I need to go back home, close to Danville, VA and see if they have 12pks of it yet. Just before I left, they started carrying it in 20oz. Too bad that's 200+ miles away and i have almost 185k miles on my car....LOTS of trips in ol Bluestreak, and lotsa soda picked up.

Susan
01-03-2010, 02:24 PM
Wow, this blows my mind that some people have trouble finding Strawberry Crush. You can't go into any store around here without seeing it in 2 liters, 12 packs and 20 oz bottles. Same with grape and orange. But I want Cherry damnit!!!!!:mad:

I have a question for you guys spotting Cherry Crush all around the country. Is this only recently that you've been seeing it or have you always had it in your area? The one guy early in this post said it was going national on Dec. 28th. I always thought it was a near extinct drink until recently. I ordered some online before but I was under the impression that once Pepsi took over Crush that Cherry was going to be gone. Thanks for all your responses so far. :p I'm just dying to get my hands on some 12 packs!

This is a recent thing for most people. Some indi bottlers probably had it available but in very not easy to get to areas. It went national the 28th. Correct. Just be patient..it will come in time.

Cherry AND Pineapple??? I didn't even know they were still putting pineapple out. Apparently Central California will be the last for Cherry Crush if we even get it at all. It's gotten so bad for me that I was having dreams all night last night about walking into stores and seeing Cherry Crush, only to wake up and find that it was just a big tease. I'm obsessed I tell you!:eek: I hope you're all enjoying your cold Cherry Crushes while I'm sitting over here in misery. :mad:

Here in WV we finally got cherry crush and strawberry crush in 12 ounce cans at Kroger's and Walmart so far. Strawberry is good, but I haven't tried cherry yet. Hopefully they will bring in Peach, Fruit Punch, and Pineapple crush here. I do wish that Coca Cola Co. would bring back Fanta Strawberry and Pineapple back.

We have Fanta strawberry, and it sells really well. We also have pineapple, but only in 20oz and 2L. I don't know how well it sells.

Today... I consider myself... the luckiest girl on the face of the earth.

Walked into a Save Mart today and bada bing, Cherry Crush has arrived! Picked up eight 12 packs, five 2 liter bottles and numerous 20 oz plastic bottles.

And to my shock we also now have Pineapple. I picked up two 12 packs of that also.

Then I went into a liquor store and found Tahitian Treat AND Cherry RC. I should have went ahead and bought a lottery ticket too at this point.

Now I want PEACH Crush which is my favorite. But tonight I am one happy camper. Looks like the days of buying and paying WAY too much for Cherry Crush online are over. You boys will not hear me complain....... for a while. :D

By my parts in the north suburbs of Chicago (Mt.Prospect, IL),
Jewel ( Supervalu) now has Cherry Crush. They have fridge packs,
2 Lt's and 20 oz bottles.

I tried a 20oz poured over rinsed ice. Yowza!!!! Boy was it enjoyable.
The cherry flavor was strong but with ice it tasted awesome. The carbonation
was hard hitting just the way I like it. IMO....Cherry Crush just might take off
this summer. I could see it being used as a mixer. Pepsi is doing a great job
"cleaning up" Crush!

Zabe, it's not really Pepsi that's "cleaning up Crush". Pepsi took it on because dpsg finally made an effort to sell them on it. Since then, dpsg has continued to rollout new flavors.

Mr Zabe

I just had to chime in again. LOL
In all my years of being a Big Three soda freak,
I have never so enjoyed a cherry flavored soda pop as
much as I have enjoyed Cherry Crush. I poured some
over crushed ice. Oh boy, it tasted like bing cherries.
The flavor notes are just wonderful.

Bravo and props to the soda pop G-ds.

On the contrary. You need the horse to pull the wagon my friend and we were not just the horse but the wheels AND the roof..everything but the contents. Pepsi made Crush a success once again due to our very agressive strategy and putting it above other brands of our own in the process..granted it was a good move for us but don't think that DPSG is the one that made it happen..Pepsi is making the most out of this deal and chomping at DPSGs OWN sunkist market share as well as Fanta's quite nicely.

I couldn't agree more! I love, love, love this drink! I've still been around but lost my password and have been too lazy to reset it until now, mostly because of Cherry Crush! I would liken the flavor to a Cherry Starburst Jelly Bean or a Shirley Temple. This has easily made it on my new favorites list!

It was a dark and snowy night. I was scared to drive at 4am to go to work, so I drove at 11pm, and decided to spend the night there. It felt like a total blizzard. It shouldn't snow in Wilmington, NC.
When I got there, I saw the grocery manager and started talking to him. I walked obliviously by what I was looking for. I turned around to go to the office for a slumber when I stopped with a gasp. CHERRY CRUSH!!!! The Pepsi dude must have stocked it after I left earlier that afternoon. It was only in 12-pks, but hey...they're BOGO this week!
I bought one and fell in love. I almost had some while I was working, but since I was too excited to sleep, I had to drink the Vault I smuggled from Greensboro. It was a good night.

Thanks for the tip. Will have to check it out.

A Pepsi rep in a local Walmart (23/Polaris) said we'd have it 2/22. I haven't been to that specific Walmart in the past week but no one else around Polaris has it yet. Not even 20 oz.
