Burlington, MA- Kuerig Dr Pepper has announced that the company will no longer produce the long running citrus drink 7 UP. CEO Robert Gamgort made the announcement early June 17th regarding the long running beverage. Sales have been at an all time low.
“7 UP has meant so much to all of us over the years. All of us over 50 that is. The youth in America have no use for the drink. Long ago are the days where one would ask for some 7 UP to ease an upset stomach. No one is ordering 7 and 7’s anymore. Quite frankly it’s been long overdue to put this soft drink out to pasture. Kuerig Dr Pepper will use the rest of 2021 to sell off what is left and to finish promotions already under contract”, said Gamgort.
Ringsssss.com conducted a survey of 1000 people to ask about the discontinuation of the soft drink. Most people said what? 7 who? And the ones who were familiar with the drink were amazed it was still being sold.
