A fruit snack that was so delicious

In 1991, Betty Crocker released a soda-flavored fruit snack that was so delicious.

The pop bottle and mug-shaped snacks came in popular soda flavors like cherry cola and root beer, as well as fruity flavors.

Sodalicious was a fitting name for the product that had a unique coating that gave snackers a tingling sensation similar to what they’d experience drinking a soda pop.


Unfortunately, the fruit flavored snacks fell flat in 1995 and the soda flavors fizzled out for good in 1998.
