    I was in the grocery store yesterday and I noticed "Birch Beer" Crush brand soda... is this a new flavour, are is it just slow coming to Canada?? I noticed they were only selling single cans (for $1.00 each), so I assume this isn't going to be a huge seller, or anything like that. Can someone confirm its availability elsewhere???

    Thanks,
    Blair.

    Are you sure you read the can right? I can't recall any such product...

    anyone else seen or heard of this stuff?

    crush does some crazy stuff in canada...

    there's a clear (i think vanilla creme soda), a strawberry, i think there's a red creme soda, a blueberry something or other, not to mention the orange. i once saw a green crush too, presumably apple but you never know.

    in america, i've only seen:

    orange
    strawberry
    grape
    pineapple
    tropical fruit punch (sparkling!)
    cherry
    peach

    i've heard of the apple, but never have seen it before. i've also heard rumors of the diet orange soda as well.

    anyone?
    woot woot

    The only Crush you even see in the Mid-Atlantic is the ones in glass bottles from American Bottling in Illinois, and they're in orange, grape, and strawberry, and shipped to the Wal-Mart distribution center, and not directly distributed through a RC/DPSU bottler (none of which even have Crush anymore), not to be found anywhere else. The only Crush I've ever seen outside of these 12 oz. glass is in Central PA, and all I ever saw was orange. It's still available a little bit, but I'm unsure as to who is distributing it, RC did, but since Coke dropped Sunkist, they picked it up. It's in a small separate area in most stores w/Hires Root Beer in that region.

    Are you sure that the green Crush was apple and not lime? I thought there was a Lime Crush available. An apple flavor would probably be brown, like Fanta's or Sidral Mundet.

    The green Crush is definitely LIME, and as far as I know it was just brought back after a long absence here in Ontario. I haven't seen Cherry or Strawberry Crush here in years, but I know we still have Grape, Cream Soda, Diet Cream Soda, Orange and Pineapple Crush.

    I have a can of the Birch Beer Crush and the Pineapple Crush because I'm a collector and I hadn't seen them around here before.

    In the Philadelphia area, there is a small distributor called Superior Beverages. They distribute Hires, Crush, Vernors, and some other small brands.

    They do (or did) sell a diet orange, but I think only in cans and 2 liters. I don't work in their franchise territory anymore, so I am not up to date on what they carry. I do know that they get most of their stuff from Polar Beverages in MA, and some longnecks from DP West Jeff.

    There are some DPSU bottlers who still have Crush. ABC has it in parts of the midwest, and Admiral/Fremont has it in Wyoming.

    I've even heard there's a COKE bottler who still has crush in Vermont!
