This is some new (?) fruit type drink in 20oz bottles I saw in Pepsi coolers in North Carolina. Didn't have any Pepsi markings on the label so it must be something the bottler picked up in that area. Sorry, no picture.

Isn't Robinsons Fruit Shoot a British beverage?

Correct. It is owned by Britvic, a large Pepsi bottler in the UK. It has been distributed for a while by Buffalo Rock and PBC. I read an article recently that distribution had expanded to other states and bottlers.

Walmart here had a whole endcap of it for a while. Haven't really seen it anywhere else, though.

In a similar vein, Tum-E Yummies is owned by Coca-Cola Consolidated (under their BYB subsidiary), and it is distributed by CCR and other Coke bottlers. Ours is actually produced by CCNNE.

I've found this in Pepsi coolers in Scranton, Pa.
