Back in August 2016 Dr Pepper announced that Stewart's Fountain Classic Sodas, Crush sodas, and IBC have been reformulated to include real sugar. In their press release, Kevin Brandvold, Director of Marketing at DPS, stated, “...this reformulation will give us a new option for retailers who want to offer premium products sweetened with real sugar.”
We agree it has been a long time coming for these beverages to finally make the switch from HFCS but we are glad they made it. You can easily taste the different in products like Stewart's Black Cherry.
Let us know what you think of the new Stewart's Fountain Classics and Crush Soda lines.
