Get to Know The OLIPOP Flavors
Tangy ginger and lemon, nostalgic strawberry pop, and classic flavors of root beer and cola, OLIPOP evokes memories and unparalleled tastes that feel like childhood. Life experiences tend to be intertwined with flavors and we've managed to remind you of your favorite flavors without the guilt (aka sugar) that is traditionally associated with indulgent food and beverages.
We know, you're probably wondering: how did we take a drink that's traditionally packed with processed sugar and artificial ingredients and make it healthy and equally as (if not more) delicious? A little bit of magic and a whole lot of science.
Our natural ingredients come together to promote healthy digestion by feeding the microbiome that exists within all of us. Every can of OLIPOP has a special blend we refer to as OLISMART. It's essentially various microbiome-supportive functional ingredients that provide beneficial gut bacteria for your microbiome's diverse population. A nourishing combination of plant fiber, prebiotics, and botanicals, OLISMART creates a sweet and healthy taste that sugar-loaded soda can't even compete with.
Currently, we have six nostalgic and delicious OLIPOP flavors: Vintage Cola, Orange Squeeze, Strawberry Vanilla, Cherry Vanilla, Ginger Lemon and Classic Root Beer. If you've ever picked up a can, then you’re aware that, like Power Rangers, each flavor comes with a bright, unique color. What you might not know is that each flavor also happens to have its very own personality.
Not sure if you’ve been formally introduced to your favorite flavor’s personality? Don’t worry. That’s what we’re here for. Let us introduce you to our rambunctious and loving crew so you can get to know our soda on a deeper level.
Old fashion taste, new fashion ingredients.
Sure, polar bears are cute, but we prefer our Cola with a little something more. Our small-batch, fiber-filled Cola has the same nostalgic taste you grew up sipping, but with added notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and caramel. Plus, it's filled with gut-supporting prebiotics and nutrients to keep things moving.
Perhaps we created the monster ourselves by insisting it is better than regular Cola, but Vintage Cola is...well...sometimes a bit bougie. For starters, Vintage Cola only watches black and white movies. But alongside its fancy-pants disposition is its fiercely loyal side. Honest and sincere, you always know where you stand with Vintage Cola because it likes what it likes, means what it says, and says what it means.
Deliciously citrus & ready to be your main squeeze.
Our nostalgic take on a childhood favorite, Orange Squeeze, is the classic orange soda taste you know and love, only this time crafted with real ingredients (and bonus points: it gives you an immunity boost, too!).
With a bright and fun exterior, Orange Squeeze's personality is just what you'd expect it would be. Rain or shine, Orange Squeeze hits the beach every day and makes the most out of life. Sunny and optimistic, Orange Squeeze spearheads the affirmation circle every time it can, hoping to make everyone feel a little better about themselves with every meeting.
It’s modern, classic and berry delicious.
An updated take on the classic fruity cream soda, Strawberry Vanilla combines real strawberry juice, fresh lemon, and pink rock salt to round out a delightful, naturally sweet treat.
And this natural sweetness makes Strawberry Vanilla the mom of every friend group it's in. Responsible and reliable, some may say Strawberry Vanilla is "Type A," but it's really much deeper than that. While it does have its ducks in a row, Strawberry Vanilla also happens to be incredibly passionate and empathetic, making everyone who meets it feel loved and cared for.
More than just the cherry on top, it's the real deal (or a soda you'll seriously cherry-ish).
The cherry pie flavor you can't get enough of through a combination of tart morello cherries and the sweet tang of rainier cherries is rounded out with the soft and sumptuous taste of vanilla bean.
Cherry Vanilla's unique flavor is only matched by its remarkable personality. A charismatic smooth talker, Cherry Vanilla is charming and seriously cool. Everything it does, looks effortless, making the rest of the flavors jealous of its smooth appeal.
Prepare to ommmm after a hint of zest & touch of ginger.
If namaste were a flavor, it would be Ginger Lemon. Refreshing and delicious, Ginger Lemon combines a kick of ginger with a tang of lemon juice for a complex flavor that manages to remain perfectly balanced.
And its personality is equally as complex as its flavor. Always in the know but without the know-it-all complex, Ginger Lemon exudes kindness and passion. Extremely well-read, it's a refreshing wealth of knowledge and consistently contributes to a lively conversation. While it is constantly encouraging its friends to join sunrise yoga, Ginger Lemon is incredibly ambitious but does not hold grudges for not waking up at the crack of dawn.
CLASSIC ROOT BEER:
Our Classic Root Beer combines the rich, sweet and creamy flavor you know and love with the complex nutrients you need! Packed with prebiotics, plant fibers and botanicals for a gut boost that feels as good as it tastes, our Classic Root Beer redefines the meaning of classic.
As a flavor, Root Beer is an ex-party animal. Well, for the most part. Still the life of every room (and refrigerator) it enters, Classic Root Beer knows how to have a good time. Despite our parental tendencies to protect Root Beer, it tries almost anything once and you can count on the other flavors to follow wherever Root Beer goes because they know a good time is in their future if they do.
