7up All Natural

7up All Natural7up, the famous lemon/lime soft drink has given up on artificial flavors and is turning to real lemon and lime juices.

From the sounds of it, you're no longer going to be able to get "classic" 7up, instead it's going to have the real juice. They also reduced the sodium content by 50%.

I guess it's ok. It's not like 7up is still popular. Pepsico quit bottling it in favor of its Sierra Mist product.

Now if they'd only do Cactus Cooler in real fruit juice. Though, I'd still want "classic" Cactus Cooler for those days when you just gotta relive old memories.

Well, 7-up and Dr Pepper are owned by the same company, so I can see why Pepsi would favour their own product over 7-up.

Personally, I can't stand the taste of Sierra Mist.

I don't understand why high fructose corn syrup is considered "natural". Just because it started as corn? It's highly manufactured...

New 7up natural has high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), witch is very bad and certainly not at all natural since the processing of HFCS involves genetically modified foods and alterations of compounds to arrive at a very nasty concoction all for the sake of saving money at the expense of consumer health. 7up not does a disservice to the consumer by claiming their new product is natural. I don't care what FDA description of natural they can hide behind; I see right through their deception. I had more respect for 7up before this. Lucas

...and another thing...

Why don't we all just pull the wool over our eyes and put our arms up in the air and go "weeeeee" as we ride the downward spiral of junk food mania. As long as 7up can claim that something is natural because it came from something that came from the earth, they might as well tell us to to eat the can, because the ingredients came from the earth. I guess everything is natural, because everything comes from the earth, even if they play around with the molecules to create something unearthly and poisonous. Maybe they should get that guy from Guiness Records who eats everything, nails, glass, an airplane, tires, whatever. He could be their spokesperson and tell people "7up: the company that cares about your health and the environment. When you're finished drinking down 7up's new all natural poison, eat the can; you'll be recycling!"

Hansen's Natural soda is still the best all around "soft drink."

Hansen's Natural Soda has HFCS in it. I don't hear anyone complaining about them.

Come on guys. 7UP actually made their product with LESS garbage in it. I think it's applaudable in this day and age of preservatives and junk. High Fructose corn syrup isn't the end of the world. How else could they are marketed it "7UP more natural than our competitors"?

Let me assure you there is not one single drop of fruit juice in a can of 7up.

I think it's great. I am allergic to preservatives, and the new 7UP is the first soda pop I have been able to drink without an allergic reaction for a long time.

I tried it. It's nasty. No matter though. It's never gonna taste the same as it did out of those tall glass bottles at Grandma's house. I'm a Sierra Mist fan when I get a yen for a Soda, which isn't often enough to matter.

I always hated 7up. But NOW. Yea. Its officially worse than Publix soda. I dont drink soda much so when i do, I want it to be a great experience. Not taste like im drinking carbonated water wit some lemon juice.

I HATE the "new" 7-UP! As far as I'm concerned, the flavor of the old drink was far better, and it had a nice, crisp finish to it. Sprite has done the same thing. Can anyone recommend another soft drink that still has that crisp finish, like 7-UP used to have? I have never tried Sierra Mist; is it any good?
