Welch’s Grape Soda is no more!

30 May

Buy Sunkist Grape Soda Online at Moo-Lolly-Bar AustraliaIn a move that is sure to disappoint many loyal fans around the world and especially in Australia, Welch’s Grape Soda, the undisputed leader of branded grape sodas has surprisingly been discontinued by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, the distributor who wholesales the product through 7-UP.

Ever since it debuted in 1974 Welch’s Grape Soda has enjoyed immense popularity, however as of now production has ceased and once supplies of Welch’s Grape soda run out they will no longer be available. As a replacement 7-up has introduced Sunkist Grape Soda to the market. It looks exactly the same, in terms of can design and I am led to believe it tastes the same too. However it is not Welch’s Grape Soda and this seems to have caused a big uproar amongst its loyal followers. Some of whom have started a Facebook page petitioning its reinstatement.

I am not sure the reason for the change and as far as I am aware no official reason has been given for it. However it is not the first time The Dr Pepper Snapple Group has discontinued a popular brand. In 2009 the Stewart’s Fountain Classic Ginger Beer was discontinued, despite being named the top Root Beer of the 2006 World Cup of Root Beer.

Have you tried the new Sunkist Grape Soda? What do you think?

    I personally will not by any more of their products anymore, unless of course they bring back Welch’s. Next stop, googling what they make so I can mark them off my list.
