Slice is a line of fruit-flavored soft drinks manufactured by PepsiCo and introduced in 1984 but discontinued by PepsiCo in the United States in the late 2000s. Slice was reintroduced in the United States and Canada by New Slice Ventures LLC, who acquired the trademark rights in those countries. Slice was reintroduced in India by PepsiCo in 2008 as a Mango-flavoured fruit drink and advertised as Tropicana Slice. Slice was a big success upon release, inspiring other juice-infused drinks based on existing juice brands, such as Coca-Cola's Minute Maid orange soda and Cadbury Schweppes's Sunkist. By May 1987, Slice held 3.2 percent of the soft drink market. One year it had fallen to 2.1 percent and was below 2 percent in June 1988. The original design of the can was a solid color related to the flavor of the drink; these were replaced in 1994 with black cans that featured colorful bursts related to the flavor of the drink, along with slicker graphics. In 1997, the cans became blue with color-coordinated swirls.
The original orange flavor was reformulated around this time with the new slogan, "It's orange, only twisted." In the summer of 2000, lemon-lime Slice was replaced in most markets by Sierra Mist, which became a national brand in 2003. The rest of the Slice line was replaced in most markets by Tropicana Twister Soda in the summer of 2005. In early 2006, Pepsi resurrected the Slice name for a new line of diet soda called Slice ONE. Marketed at Wal-Mart stores, Slice ONE was available in orange and berry flavors, all sweetened with Splenda; as of 2009, Slice was available from Wal-Mart Stores. Slice was launched in India in 1993 as a mango flavored drink and went on to become a leading player in the category. In India,'Slice Mango' is promoted by Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif. Slice mango is available in Pakistan. Slice was discontinued by PepsiCo at an unknown date in the United States between the late 2000s to early or mid 2010’s, no longer being on PepsiCo’s “Product Locator” website. By 2018, New Slice Ventures LLC had acquired the Slice trademark portfolio in the United States and Canada, was working with Revolution Brands, Dormitus Brands and Spiral Sun Ventures, to re-launch a lower-sugar, lower-calorie beverage sweetened only with USDA-certified organic fruit juice.
In December 2018, New Slice Ventures announced that its new Slice-branded products had become available for wholesale pre-order in four flavors: Raspberry & Grapefruit, Mango & Pineapple and Apple & Cranberry. Until 1994, the drink contained 10% fruit juice.

Fanta is a brand of fruit-flavored carbonated drinks created by The Coca-Cola Company and marketed globally. There are more than 100 flavours worldwide; the Fanta drink originated as a cola substitute in Nazi Germany under a World War II trade embargo for Coca-Cola ingredients in 1940. During WWII, a trade embargo was established against Nazi Germany—making the import of Coca-Cola syrup difficult. To circumvent this, Max Keith, the head of Coca-Cola Deutschland decided to create a new product for the German market, using only ingredients available in Germany at the time, including whey and apple pomace—the "leftovers of leftovers", as Keith recalled; the name was the result of a brainstorming session, which started with Keith's exhorting his team to "use their imagination", to which one of his salesmen, Joe Knipp, retorted "Fanta!"The plant was cut off from Coca-Cola headquarters during the war. After the war, The Coca-Cola Company regained control of the plant and the trademarks to the new Fanta product—as well as the plant profits made during the war.
During the war the Dutch Coca-Cola plant in Amsterdam suffered the same difficulties as the German Coca-Cola plant. Max Keith put the Fanta brand at the disposal of the Dutch Coca-Cola plant, of which he had been appointed the official caretaker. Dutch Fanta had a different recipe from German Fanta, elderberries being one of the main ingredients. Fanta production was discontinued when the German and Dutch Coca-Cola branches were reunited with their parent company. Following the launch of several drinks by the Pepsi corporation in the 1950s, Coca-Cola relaunched Fanta in 1955; the drink was marketed in Europe, Asia and South America. The orange Fanta that we know today was produced for the first time in Italy, in Naples, in 1955, when a local bottling plant started producing it using locally sourced oranges. Fanta is known for its upbeat colorful advertising. For the re-introduction of Fanta in the United States, Coca-Cola worked with the ad agency Ogilvy in 2001. After a brainstorming session, the Ogilvy creative team of Andrea Scaglione, Andrew Ladden and Bill Davaris created the tagline "Wanta Fanta!" which became the jingle for the Fantanas in the broadcast campaign.
The campaign lasted from mid-2001, in the form of a successful trial run, to October 1, 2006. Three years in June 2009, Fanta re-launched the campaign. In February 2015, a 75th-anniversary version of Fanta was released in Germany. Packaged in glass bottles evoking the original design and with an authentic original wartime flavor including 30% whey and pomace, it is described on the packaging as "less sweet" and a German original. An associated television ad referenced the history of the drink and said the Coca-Cola company wanted to bring back "the feeling of the Good Old Times", interpreted by many to mean Nazi rule; the ad was subsequently replaced. There are more than 90 flavors worldwide. In Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Turkey and some other countries, there is "Fanta Shokata" based on an elderflower blossom extract drink, traditional in Romania, Serbia and Herzegovina, Croatia and other Balkan countries. Orange Fanta is available in Canada; the other variants available in Canada are Cream Soda, both made with grape juice.
Primary competitors to Fanta have included Tango, Sunkist, Sumol, Faygo, Tropicana Twister and Orangina. Fanta was the second drink to be produced after the original Coca-Cola. In New Zealand, unlike the rest of Australasia, Fanta is visually branded with the original logo used since 2008; the New Zealand market includes the Fanta variants Fanta Blueberry, Fanta Sour Watermelon and Fanta Strawberry Sherbet.

Jones Soda Co. is a beverage company based in SODO, Washington. It bottles and distributes soft drinks, non-carbonated beverages, energy drinks, candy. Jones Cane Sugar Soda is a carbonated soft drink that has many unusual flavors that are not offered by other soft drink makers; the company was founded by Peter van Stolk in 1986 as a beverage distributor in Western Canada. Until 1995, the company distributed other beverage lines such as AriZona Iced Tea and Thomas Kemper sodas in Western Canada; as the company gained significant knowledge of the beverage industry, it decided to get into the market with alternative beverages as the Urban Juice & Soda Company. By 2000, over 85% of its revenues came from the Jones Soda brand, the company changed its name to Jones Soda and moved its headquarters from Vancouver to Seattle. In November 2006, Jones Soda announced that it would replace high fructose corn syrup –, used by most national brands in the United States in carbonated soft drinks – in its products with cane sugar.
On January 22, 2007, Jones Pure Cane Soda was launched in 12 ounce cans. By April 2007, all of the company's products switched to cane sugar, except for its energy drinks, which changed that fall. In 2007, the company announced an $11.6 million loss, due to the attempted expansion into the canned-soda market, whose barriers to entry were high against mass-produced Coca-Cola and Pepsi. In 2008, Jones Soda announced a second-quarter loss and the downsizing of 42 employees, cutting costs a little over $2.6 million annually. In March 2010, Jones Soda agreed to allow rival Reed's, Inc. to purchase the company at a steep discount, though in the month Jones backed out of the deal. The company named former Talking Rain president William Meissner as President and CEO. In June 2010, the company announced a distribution deal with Walmart and $10 million in financing from Glengrove Small Cap Value Ltd. In June 2011, Jones moved out of its South Lake Union headquarters to a building in Pioneer Square opposite CenturyLink Field.
In 2012, Jennifer Cue was hired as CEO. In Spring 2015, Jones moved out of its Pioneer Square building to a larger space at 66 S Hanford St #150, Seattle, WA. Jones Soda was developed in 1995 and introduced in 1996 with seven flavors: Orange, Lemon, Strawberry and Grape in 12oz glass bottles; the use of photos on the labels was a marketing ploy designed to create an "emotional attachment" to the brand. To help break into the soft drink marketplace, Jones pursued what it calls an "alternative distribution strategy" to attract consumer attention, selling soft drinks in venues such as clothing and music stores and piercing parlors, candy stores, sporting equipment shops. Jones Soda was available nationwide in larger chain stores such as 7-Eleven, Safeway, Hy-Vee, Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Barnes & Noble. Recent business distribution deals have further expanded the company, placing some basic flavors in stores such as Meijer, World Market, Panera. On March 17, 2004, it announced a deal to distribute Jones Soda in over 3900 Starbucks locations in the United States, though Starbucks does not supply Jones anymore in the United States.
On October 12, 2004, Jones Soda introduced 12oz cans for the first time with an exclusive distribution deal with Target, though other stores now sell the cans. Jones Soda was sold at Ruby Tuesday. Since the original seven flavors were introduced, 25 additional flavors have been created: No Longer Listed Retired There have been dessert specials available, including such flavors as Apple Pie, Blueberry Pie, others. In January 1999, Jones introduced the "slim" line of diet sodas, but discontinued it in 2003 in favor of a sugar-free line, its sugar-free formulas contain sucralose of the Splenda brand and acesulfame potassium, but no aspartame. Though they were not labeled sugar-free, four flavors were considered "Mid-Calorie": Twisted Lime, Watermelon and Blueberry; these flavors still included 21 grams of sugar. In 2019, Jones introduced two new sugar-free flavors: SF Cream Soda; these flavors join sugar-free Cola on the current zero sugar menu. In October 1999, Jones introduced Jones Soda WhoopAss.
Jones Energy was the second entry into the energy drink market and included three flavors in 8.4oz cans: Mixed Berry, Lemon Lime, Orange. Big Jones Energy and Sugar Free Jones Energy were available. Jones Energy was discontinued in late 2008. Jones Juice debuted in 2001 with such flavors as Limes with Orange, Berry White, Black, Purple Carrot, Fu Cran Fu. "Dave" was a tea named for Dave Dafoe, founder of Flavorman, the company which developed all of the Jones brand's original flavors. The line was renamed Jones Naturals in 2002 and expanded to include Betty, Bananaberry, D'Peach Mode, Bada Bing!, Bohemian Raspberry, Strawberry Manilow. Naturals do not have the fortunes under the caps. Naturals are sold in 20oz glass bottles, making them twice as big as Jones Soda. Naturals contain between 10 percent juice depending on the flavor. AÇAI=MC2, Bada Bing!, Berry White, Black, Dave, Fu Cran Fu, Purple Carrot, Your Momegranate have since been retired. In 2005, Jones announced a new line in its series: Jones Organics.
The blends consist of six different tea-based flavors -- two each of green tea and red tea. The bottles have a clean, minimal label, as opp
A milk float is a vehicle designed for the delivery of fresh milk. Today, milk floats are battery electric vehicles, but they were horse-drawn, they were once common in many European countries the United Kingdom, were operated by local dairies. However, in recent years, as the number of supermarkets, small independent grocers and petrol stations, convenience stores stocking fresh milk has increased, many people have switched from regular home delivery to obtaining fresh milk from these other sources; because of the small power output from its electric motor, a milk float travels slowly around 10 to 16 miles per hour although some have been modified to do up to 80 mph. Operators exit their vehicle before they have stopped to speed up deliveries. Electric milk floats come in three wheel and four wheel versions, the latter larger, they are quiet, suiting operations in residential areas during the early hours of the morning or during the night. Most electric milk floats do not have seat belts, the law in the United Kingdom only requires wearing seat belts where these are fitted in the vehicle.
While there was an exemption in the law meaning those making local deliveries were not required to wear a seat belt, which would in theory have included drivers and passengers in milk floats with seat belts fitted, the law was changed in 2005 to deliveries less than 50 metres apart. In August 1967, the UK Electric Vehicle Association put out a press release stating that Britain had more battery-electric vehicles on its roads than the rest of the world put together, it is not clear what research the association had undertaken into the quantity of electric vehicles of other countries, but closer inspection disclosed that all of the battery driven vehicles licensed for UK road use were milk floats. Glasgow has one of the largest working milk float fleets in the UK. Most of the vehicles operate from the Grandtully Depot in Kelvindale; some dairies in the UK, including Dairy Crest, have had to modernise and have replaced their electric milk floats with petrol or diesel fuel-powered vehicles to speed up deliveries and thus increase profit.
There were many manufacturers of milk floats in Britain during the 20th century. Brush Electrical Engineering Company had been established in 1889, had manufactured electric cars between 1901 and 1905. In 1940, Brush required some small electric tractor units, but as none were commercially available, they asked AE Morrison and Sons to produce a design for one. Morrisons produced a 3-wheeled design, which Brush used to manufacture a number of units for internal use, they began selling them to customers, shipping a large order to Russia in 1941. They expanded to producing battery electric road vehicles in 1945, when they bought designs and manufacturing rights from Metrovick; the Metrovick designs were for 4-wheeled vehicles, but they produced 3-wheeled vehicles, which were marketed as the Brush Pony. In early 1949, they reduced the prices of their electric vehicles by around 25 per cent, in an attempt to make them more competitive with petrol vehicles. All of their road vehicles were sold through the motor trade, in order to achieve a good standard of after-sales service.
Production of 4-wheeled battery electrics ceased in 1950, although the company continued to manufacture the 3-wheeled Brush Pony, their range of industrial trucks. By 1969, Brush were owned by the Hawker Siddeley group, which owned half of Morrison-Electricars, manufacture of Brush electric vehicles moved to the newly established Morrison factory at Tredegar. Most were industrial trucks, but the transfer included the Brush Pony, a number were manufactured at Tredegar subsequently. Electricars began trading in Birmingham in 1919, although they made heavy duty electric vehicles, suitable for payloads up to 6 tons, they soon diversified into smaller vehicles suitable for doorstep delivery. In 1936, they became part of the business group Associated Electric Vehicle Manufacturers Limited, but during the Second World War, few electric vehicles were built, due to a shortage of materials, they ceased producing them in 1944. Graiseley Electric Vehicles were produced in Wolverhampton by Diamond Motors Ltd, a company which had made motorcycles, which bought the sidecar business from AJS when that company was liquidated in 1931.
Included in the sale was the Graiseley marque, this was used for a range of three-wheeled battery-electric pedestrian controlled milk trucks. They soon found. In 1937 they produced a ride-on four wheeled vehicle, suitable for a payload of 8-10 cwt, with a range of around 35 miles, it was for their pedestrian controlled vehicles that they were best known, their range included the Model 60, with a payload of 8-10 cwt, the Model 75, with a 12-15 cwt payload, the Model 90, which could carry 22 cwt. Because the primary focus was on the dairy industry, the model numbers represented the number of imperial gallons of milk that could be carried. Between 1948 and 1952, the company sold a large number of Graiseley PCVs to United Dairies, diversified into stillage trucks and pallet trucks for use in factories; the company was liquidated in 1960, but the Graiseley marque was used by Lister Graiseley in 1969 and by Gough Industrial Trucks Ltd of Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent in 1971. Harbilt electric vehicles were produced by the Market Harborough Construction Company, formed in 1935 as a manufacturer of aircraft components.

Citra was a clear lemon- and lime-flavoured soda sold in India in the 1980s and early 1990s. Citra was owned by Parle Bisleri. Along with other Parle brands, Thums Up, Gold Spot and Maaza, Citra was sold to Coca-Cola in 1993 in a deal, worth $40 million. At the time of sale, the Parle brands together had a 60% market share in the aerated water industry; the brand was strong in South India. Citra was phased out by the year 2000 to make way for Sprite. In 1998, Coke introduced a new drink in the US market called Citra, renamed Fanta Citrus. Although the brand name was similar, this was a different grapefruit-based formula. In February 2012, Coke announced that it was reviving the Citra brand in rural areas of Maharashtra and Gujarat on a pilot basis, on a price strategy that will be 20% cheaper than other Coke and competitor brands; the relaunch is aimed at competing with smaller regional brands.
