Winter Spice Cranberry Sprite is Back for the Holiday Season


When this time of the year comes around, we get to enjoy all of the holiday-themed promotions, from Starbucks winter drinks to new wintery M&M flavors. Sprite is another company that provides us with products full of holiday cheer. Their Winter Spice Cranberry Sprite has all the tart deliciousness of cranberry sauce, with the warm winter spices of gingerbread cookies.

What is Winter Spice Cranberry Sprite?

 Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry takes the original lemon-lime flavor and adds a holiday spin with the tart cranberry flavor. The warm spice blend is an added twist that makes this drink the perfect combo of flavors for the holiday season.

This unique taste combination is available in 20 fl oz bottles and 2-liter bottles, so you can grab it as a pick-me-up or take it home to enjoy whenever you like. The limited edition flavor contains carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, natural flavors, citric acid, sodium citrate, and sodium benzoate (to protect taste).


As for its nutrition facts, a 20 fl oz bottle has 200 calories, 0 g fat, 110 mg sodium, 54 g carbohydrate (20% daily value), 54 g sugars, and 0 g protein. Unlike Coca-Cola, Sprite products are caffeine-free, but they'll provide a burst of energy due to the sugar they contain.

Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry Zero Sugar

This year, Sprite is also offering a zero sugar soda version of their beloved Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry. Because of this, you can enjoy the Sprite Lemon Lime Soda Soft Drink in all its cranberry deliciousness, with zero calories or sugar! The zero sugar version is only available in 2-liter bottles and is sweetened with aspartame.

The soda brand has also joined forces with wrapping paper brand UNWRP to design Sprite-themed wrapping paper. To win some of this festive wrapping paper, fans can head to social media, sharing their love of the soda brand and tagging Sprite in the post. With holiday-themed Cranberry Sprite and Sprite-themed wrapping paper, the holidays can be as Sprite-filled as you please!

What Happened To The Original Sprite Cranberry?

Released seasonally between 2013 - 2018, Sprite Cranberry featured the crisp taste of cranberry without the added spice that Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry features. Many soda drinkers were upset by the change and still petition to revive the old recipe.


A great alternative is to make it yourself at home (mix cranberry juice with sprite) or visit Sonic and order a Sprite with cranberry flavoring.
