Sprite Cranberry launches across Canada for a limited time only.
TORONTO—With Thanksgiving just around the corner and the festive holiday season soon upon us, Sprite is introducing a new flavor to Canada—Sprite Cranberry.
Available for a limited time until the end of 2015, Sprite Cranberry combines the lemon-lime notes of Sprite with a splash of sweet and tart cranberry flavor.
“Since Sprite Cranberry launched in the United States, we’ve had countless requests from fans asking when it will come to canada. Canadians are looking for Sprite Cranberry’s refreshing flavor, and we;re listening,” says Coca-Cola Ltd. vice-president of the sparkling business unit Michael Samoszewski. “The crisp taste of lemon-lime and cranberry complements the flavors of Thanksgiving and the holiday season. We know that Canadians will love serving Sprite Cranberry to their family and guests.”
Sprite Cranberry is caffeine-free, made with 100 percent natural flavors and is perfect either as a stand-alone beverage or mixed in specialty holiday-themed recipes.
The new flavor will appear on shelves across Canada for a limited time only starting in early September and available through the end of the year, while supplies last. Sprite Cranberry will be available in 12-packs of 355 mL cans and will be sold in grocery and some drug store locations.
