Sprite® Brings Back Tropical Flavor for First Time in a Decade

Beverage brand returns fan-favorite tropical flavor – lemon-lime with
and pineapple – for a limited time only

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Millions of fans are about to enjoy a tropical blast from the past, and
it’s sure to trigger memories of a certain delicious flavor from back in
the day. The tropical Sprite flavor fans loved more than a decade ago
makes its return today with an all-new name – Sprite Tropical Mix
– and a fresh new look.

Sprite Tropical Mix combines the crisp, familiar Sprite lemon-lime taste
with delicious strawberry and pineapple flavors. The refreshing flavor
combination is available now for a limited time only in a retro-inspired
orange-on-white package design.

“Fans have thirsted for the return of this popular Sprite tropical
flavor for years, and it’s great to finally bring it back to reward
their enthusiasm. I can’t think of a better way to let them know that
we’re listening,” said Kimberly Paige, vice president, Sparkling Brands,
Sprite and Flavors, Coca-Cola North America. “The blend of lemon-lime,
strawberry and pineapple flavors gives the delicious taste of Sprite a
fresh twist for summer, and for fans unfamiliar with the tropical mix,
it’s a refreshing way to quench their thirst for something new.”

Sprite Tropical Mix joins a number of other product variations Sprite
has introduced in recent years to offer consumers innovative flavor
mixes. Other popular limited-edition Sprite flavors include the
holiday-favorite Sprite Cranberry, which was first introduced in 2013,
and Sprite LeBron’s Mix™, which was available in 2014 and 2015.

Sprite Tropical Mix will be available in 20-ounce PET bottles and sold
in convenience, value and other retail stores nationwide through August,
or while supplies last. The limited-edition release will be supported
through an integrated marketing campaign, including radio and
out-of-home advertising and content on Sprite social channels. To check
