Watermelon sugar, hi! Our new flavor is here, and it’s a wave of juicy refreshment that captures the magic of summer in one ice-cold can—keeping you cool all summer long. And when you’re this chill, nothing can bring down your vibe. Here’s all you need to know about the new flavor of the summer:
Meet Watermelon Lime
Welcome to the land of watermelon waterfalls and lime lagoons, where your tastebuds wear sarongs and sip on juicy, refreshing soda. Say hello to Watermelon Lime! Watermelon Lime is that candy-like flavor you’ve always loved but in liquid form. With a mix of watermelon, tart cherry, and lime juice, this bubbly soda balances brightness with a crave-worthy pop of sweetness.
Watermelon Lime Inspiration Story
With our favorite season on the way, our co-founder and formulator Ben Goodwin wanted to launch a soda perfect for warmer temps, pool parties, and backyard BBQs. In other words, we needed a soda that captured the flavor of summer in can form. And what fruit screams summer more than watermelon? With the fruit of summer secured we decided to mix in some tart and slightly sweet lime. And we were wondering, will these two fruits fall in love? Is this the beginning of an unforgettable summer love story?! Turns out, yes!
That’s right, Watermelon Lime is the soda of the summer. It’s a flavor explosion for your taste buds that’s best served with long days, warm nights, and afternoons by the pool. It’s essentially summertime in a can. And this soda flavor can’t wait to be the new addition to your fridge (or poolside!). Picture it: with your shades on and a cold can of Watermelon Lime in your hand, you’re simply too refreshed to be stressed. Sounds like summer to us!
Watermelon Lime Nutrition
Like all our sodas at OLIPOP, Watermelon Lime is just as nutritious as it is delicious. Our ingredients support healthy digestion by feeding the microbiome that exists within all of us. We use something called OLISMART to make our drinks both delicious and functional. OLISMART is our in-house, proprietary blend of eight unique botanicals, plant fibers, and prebiotics (the primo food source for beneficial bacteria), each hand-picked for their biome-supporting benefits.
As a part of their biome-supporting benefits, the fiber and prebiotics in our soda aid in slowly dispersing nutrients over the digestive tract's length, feeding the important good bacteria that live there. Fiber is also a key ingredient for digestive health. And it’s a macronutrient that we all need more of since 95% of Americans don’t meet the recommended daily intake.
Our botanical extracts, on the other hand, serve to promote nutritional diversity. The number of plant types you eat plays a big role in the diversity of your gut microbiome. And as you might already know: a diverse microbiome is a healthier, stronger microbiome. With 8 botanical extracts and plant fibers in OLISMART, OLIPOP can help you increase the diversity of your diet in just one can.
In addition to the OLISMART blend we use in all of our sodas, our Watermelon Lime formula also adds watermelon juice, lime juice, and natural watermelon flavor (duh, that’s how we got the taste!). Plus, we flavor all our drinks with stevia instead of sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Because stevia is calorie-free, Watermelon Lime is only 5 grams of sugar. In comparison, fruity sodas from other "big soda" companies can have up to forty-two grams of sugar, plus artificial flavors and colors. Talk about an OLIPOP win!
