Tropicana Pur is no more

Jan 22

Back in March of 2007 I wrote a quick piece about a new acai product by Tropicana – Acai Raspberry juice. Shortly after writing about it, I saw it in stores and tried it. By the time I was done the bottle I can honestly say it didn’t take long to become my all time favorite juice. Of course OJ always has it’s place in the fridge, but as a person trying to cut caffeine out of my diet, I found that acai juice to fit in perfectly.

Then the juice started disappearing from stores. Systematically, one store at a time, it was being priced at clearence prices and then, eventually, no where to be found. I sent a note to Tropicana inquiring about the fate of Tropicana Pur juices and receives this reply.

Unfortunately, we are no long producing any of the Tropicana Pûr juices, including Raspberry Açai.  In the past, we had distributed this flavour in several markets; however it did not sell as well as we had hoped.  At this point, there are no immediate plans to reintroduce this product; however, you can be assured that I will forward your comments to the appropriate individuals at Pepsi-QTG Canada.

Did anyone else out there give this product a try while it was being produced? Did anyone enjoy this juice as much as I did? Bring back Tropicana Pur Raspberry Acai!

    I loved that juice. I don’t think they gave it much of a chance. It was on the shelf and by the time my first bottle was gone, it was no longer on the shelf. Every week I scan the juice aisle to no avail. Now I know why. Hopefully they will bring it back.

    That juice was awesome, indeed! We were able to buy it for about 6-8 weeks in st. Louis. It was great and then suddenly it was no more….

    I hope they bring it back, it was delicious.

    I’m glad to hear that Lisa! When they took it off the shelves in my city I got in touch with Pepsi to confirm that it really was pulled from shelves across North America – they confirmed that was the case at the time. But now that you’ve seen it in stores again…I’m crossing my fingers! I’ve inquired with the same person that helped me out last time at Pepsi – I’ll definitely post something if they’re bringing it back!

    That is so disappointing. I tried it at my mom’s and wanted to get some for myself. It wasn’t on the shelf the week after I tried it, and I continually check the juice section in hopes that it might become available. I’ve been looking for months and decided to check online because it is that GOOD!
