Sprite and LeBron James Launch New Sprite Flavor, Sprite 6 Mix
Posted on March 19, 2014
Sprite and LeBron James have partnered to launch a limited-edition Sprite flavor called Sprite 6 Mix. The new drink combines the taste of traditional Sprite with a splash of cherry and orange flavor. The drink is being sold in stores in 20-ounce bottles and 19.2 ounce cans (pictured) for a limited time. The packaging features a custom number "6" and a crown to represent James' nickname, "King James."
James said in a statement, "Growing up drinking Sprite, I never imagined I would have my own flavor someday. I had a great time working with the Sprite team to turn my favorite flavors into a pretty cool variation of one of my favorite brands. I'm proud of what we created and I'm excited for my fans to try it."
