We Asked the Community: What’s the Best OLIPOP Flavor?

Posted May 16, 2024 Updated May 16, 2024

At OLIPOP, we've always believed that our community's voice matters most. That's why we recently turned to our OLIPOP Nation Facebook group to settle one of life's most important questions: What’s the best OLIPOP flavor? 

With excitement brewing and taste buds tingling, we launched a poll asking members to cast their votes for their favorite OLIPOP beverage. With 16 delicious, bubbly flavors, each with its own unique taste and personality, we knew this wasn’t an easy question to answer! OLIPOP Nation member Marah Wehler said it best: “I think this is the hardest question I’ve ever been asked.” We couldn’t agree more. From the juicy Tropical Punch to the timeless appeal of Vintage Cola, the choices are as diverse as our community itself. But, we were tempted to hear what you had to say. 

So, what’s OLIPOP Nation’s favorite OLIPOP flavor? After a flurry of over 270 votes, four flavors emerged as the clear favorites: Classic Root Beer, Cream Soda, Classic Grape, and Vintage Cola. Here’s why our community voted these flavors as their top picks: 

1. Classic Root Beer

With its nostalgic charm and smooth, sweet flavor (thanks to extracts of sweet birch, smooth vanilla bean, and naturally sourced burdock root!), Classic Root Beer emerged as a crowd-pleaser, capturing the hearts of many in the OLIPOP community. And who doesn’t love a healthy, delicious spin on a timeless classic?! Here’s why members of OLIPOP Nation voted for Classic Root Beer as their favorite flavor:

2. Cream Soda

Delighting taste buds with its creamy vanilla goodness, Cream Soda secured its spot as a cherished favorite among OLIPOP enthusiasts.
