Canada’s Cooler Aisle Just Got Juicier: Simply Spiked™ Hits Shelves This February

By CNW Group Ltd.   

Molson Coors debuts Simply Spiked Lemonade™ with a variety pack and three juicy new flavours

TORONTO, Feb. 16, 2023 /CNW/ — Molson Coors Beverage Company and The Coca Cola Company today announces Simply Spiked Lemonade™, a fresh lineup of full-flavour beverages, is rolling into Canadian ready-to-drink cooler aisles. Inspired by one of Canada’s favourite juices, Simply Spiked Lemonade™  will bring a combo of five per cent real fruit juice and natural flavour credentials to the ready-to-drink alcohol beverage space. Simply® and Simply Spiked Lemonade™ are trademarks of The Coca-Cola Company.

“Following the successful launch of Simply Spiked Lemonade™ in the United States, we wanted to give Canadians a new, fresh tasting and juicy option,” says Lindsay Wilson, Brand Director Seltzer & Flavour Portfolio. “In the continued demand for ready to drink beverages, Simply Spiked Lemonade™ sets itself apart with the unapologetic flavour that only real juice can bring. In the United States, Simply Spiked Lemonade was the #1  innovation across beer/beer alternate in volume sales in 2022 and we expect to see similar results in Canada.”

In a world full of things that are less than real, Simply Spiked Lemonade’s honest-to-goodness taste is a refreshingly simple shake-up. These coolers are ready to bring the real to English Canada beginning on Feb. 27 before launching across Quebec starting on April 1 in three distinct flavours:

  • Signature Lemonade: Bright and refreshing, with a perfect balance of sweet lemonade and fresh, lemony tartness.
  • Strawberry Lemonade: Ripe, jammy strawberry notes combined with an elevated, tart lemonade finish.
  • Blueberry Lemonade: Unique and refreshing, with ripe blueberry notes blended with smooth lemonade flavour.

Each product will be ready to grab in a three-flavour variety pack featuring slim cans as well as a six-pack, 12-pack or single serve of the lead flavour signature lemonade at participating locations. Pack sizes may vary.

The launch of Simply Spiked Lemonade™ marks the latest collaboration between Molson Coors and The Coca-Cola Company following the 2021 launch of Topo Chico® Hard Seltzer in Canada. Molson Coors entered into an exclusive agreement with The Coca-Cola Company to manufacture, market, and distribute Simply Spiked Lemonade™ in Canada in 2023.
