Best-Fruity-Flavored-Sodas-For-Summer-2022 456863884

As summer gets hotter and hotter, we’ve noticed the soft drink aisles at our local stores getting busier and busier. People are lined up to purchase a cool, refreshing fizzy beverage. While some people may lean towards an ice-cold cola or a root beer float, many more would likely prefer some of the light, fruity-flavored sodas that are available on the market today.

When it gets hot outside, people tend to lean more towards lighter sodas, like Sprite, Fresca or Mountain Dew as opposed to darker, heavier sodas like Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. Something about a lighter, fruity soda just sounds more appealing when the weather is hot. It feels like they’ll really quench your thirst even more.

With literally hundreds of sodas on the store shelves these days, we recommend that you venture outside of your comfort zone and try some of these amazing specialty craft sodas. We think you’ll agree that they really hit the spot on a hot summer’s day!

Fruit flavors are exploding in popularity in the soda market right now.

Some market analysts think that the general societal movement towards healthier, natural flavors have gone hand-in-hand with fruit-flavored soda’s popularity. Fruit flavors have long been popular in foreign markets, and they are really starting to blossom here in the United States.

Mexican soda manufacturer, Jarritos has been in the market with their extensive line of fruity sodas since 1950. From Mandarin orange, to pineapple and even guava, their sodas have long been a popular staple in the Mexican culture and heritage.

Japan is another noteworthy country when it comes to fruity flavored fizzy drinks. They have quite a few soda companies, but Ramune seems to dominate the market with their “marble sodas.” These oddly-shaped glass bottles actually have a marble in them that helps keep the carbonation in them. With flavors like lychee, blueberry, peach, yuzu and melon creamy soda you simply can’t go wrong!

We believe that sodas with fruity flavors are just now on the precipice of massively growing their market share here in the United States. With so many different flavor options, the possibilities are endless!

Fruity-flavored sodas you (and your customers) will be sure to love!

While we don’t think the major classic soda flavors, (like cola, cream soda or root beer) are going anywhere anytime soon, the wide variety of new fruit flavored craft sodas is something you just can’t ignore.

Some of these offer new twists on old classics, and some are just plain timeless. Either way, these will definitely reward your taste buds and your sweet tooth with plenty of fruity, fizzy deliciousness!

O-Zell Soda: Pineapple Whip

O-Zell-Soda-Pineapple-Whip R008


O-Zell soda was actually founded by Walt Disney’s father, Elias way back in 1912. Elias Disney invested money into a new venture into “soft” drinks that were intended to be an alternative to alcoholic beverages during the prohibition era. Unfortunately the proprietor and president of the company sank the ship after embezzling thousands of dollars from Mister Disney and they went out of business in 1920.

Today the brand has been revived, with a portion of every purchase helping fund the restoration of Walt Disney’s birthplace home in Chicago, Illinois.

All of O-Zell Sodas are made with 100% Hawaiian cane sugar and all natural ingredients. Their Pineapple Whip soda is one of our favorite flavors from their lineup and makes for the perfect, light, sweet and fizzy beverage on hot summer days. The flavor also tastes identical to the pineapple whip you can get on your vacation to Disneyland, making it the perfect summer treat!

Whirly Pop Rainbow Fruit Punch Soda

Whiry-Pop-Rainbow-Fruit-Punch-Craft-Soda R814

Bawls Guarana Orange Energy Soda

BAWLS-Guarana-Orange-Soda-Bottle 3704


Everyone could use a little extra boost when it gets hot outside. Whether you’re hard at work, or hard at play, BAWLS Guarana sodas can keep you going strong. That’s because they use the guarana berry, a natural source of caffeine straight from the rainforest. Their highly-caffeinated sodas pack a punch and when it’s hot outside and nothing beats a cool, refreshing citrusy soda.

That’s why we recommend an ice-cold BAWLS Guarana Orange Soda in their signature glass bumpy bottle. These are also available in cans, which are the perfect companion to long nature hikes, floating the river, or even just spending a nice relaxing day at the beach. But with all that extra energy, who needs to relax?

Mexican Sprite

Mexican-Sprite-Lemon-Lime-Soda 2837


Okay, okay… I know we said to venture outside of the major soda brands this summer, but it just wouldn’t feel like summer without the sweet refreshing lemon lime flavor of and ice-cold Sprite!

Redstone Foods is proud to offer the Mexican Sprite, which comes in a glass bottle and is made with real cane sugar. If you’ve never tried one on a hot summer day, you’re definitely missing out!

Avery’s Beverages Unicorn Yack Soda is much more delicious than the name would suggest. It is a raspberry/ orange cream soda that creates the perfect combination of fruity flavors to help you beat the heat!
