Coca-Cola plans to debut two new Sprite flavors in early 2017 – Sprite Cherry and Sprite Cherry Zero.
The Coca-Cola Company announced the new flavors at the 2016 NACS Show last week in Atlanta, the AJC reports. The National Association of Convenience Stores is an international trade association representing more than 2,100 retail and 1,600 supplier company members.
The Sprite Cherry flavor was chosen based on its popularity at the company’s Freestyle soda fountains. The fountains, located at restaurants, theaters and convenience stores, offer fans more than 150 mix-and-match drink flavor combinations. The machines have the ability to track flavor selections and send the collected data digitally to Coca-Cola, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The Sprite and cherry combination was reportedly a hit among people using the Freestyle fountains.
