KROGER just confirmed that a popular drink has been discontinued.
The discontinued product in question was the Kroger Black Cherry flavored sparkling water.
It was caffeine-free, naturally flavored, and cost less than $1 for a 1-liter bottle.
A Twitter user reached out to the brand and asked why they hadn’t seen the product at their local store in Sandy, Oregon.
The grocery chain replied, “I was able to investigate and found that unfortunately this soda is no longer available.”
“We have shared your feedback with our leadership teams for review. Please enjoy the rest of your day,” the company added.
However, the Twitter user told Kroger that “it would be so much easier to enjoy if I had something to drink!”
While the drink the user was referring to was Black Cherry flavored soda, he misunderstood the name and initially asked Kroger about the Big K Black Cherry Sods.
The grocery chain informed the customer that the lemonade had indeed been discontinued.
The website still states that sparkling water is available in certain areas.
The US Sun has asked Kroger for clarification.
TO SAY GOODBYE
Because shelf space can be expensive, popular items are often discontinued.
For example, Kroger also discontinued its Hot Honey Pepperoni Frozen Pizza.
Buyers loved the option as it included hints of honey and chili for a sweet and tangy taste.
Each frozen brick oven pizza is ready in 12 minutes and features a sourdough crust.
However, fans of the frozen item noticed it was missing from the shelves and took to Twitter to inquire.
One user wrote: “I’m going to die soon. Figuratively, not literally, because the three Dillons in my town haven’t had any pizzas from me in the last three weeks. Help me help you make more money off me and please don’t tell me they’ve been hired.”
Kroger was quick to reply that it had not been taken from storage.
Seconds later, however, the grocery chain added that it may in fact have disappeared for good.
Kroger tweeted: “There is a chance this has been discontinued due to poor sales or poor performance at the store level. I would suggest speaking to your store management team about potential special orders.”
SAVE ON SHOPPING
Although prices may vary by location, Kroger offers the same savings program nationwide and at its local affiliates.
The Kroger Rewards program provides access to special member pricing on hundreds of rotating products.
By scanning their loyalty card or entering a phone number at checkout, customers can collect fuel points that they can redeem at participating fuel stations.
These savings can add up to as much as $1 per gallon at gas stations like Shell.
Customers can also access digital coupons and view weekly ads, which is especially useful as Kroger is phasing out weekly ads.
