All-natural Hotlips sodas have been named ‘Best New Carbonated Beverage’ by beverage connoisseur Bevnet. Its flavors include cherry, raspberry, boysenberry, blackberry, black raspberry, apple and pear.

Hotlips soda is a locally-made fruit-based soda from McMinnville, Oregon. Besides being made with lots of real fruit and natural ingredients, the Hotlips folks even used locally manufactured bottles made of recycled glass.

Implications - "Big soda" has been vilified for its use of high fructose corn syrup and negative effect on consumers' waistlines; however, Americans aren't yet ready to end their love affair with pop. Niche soda companies are making moves within this emerging market by using traditional soda-making techniques and natural or organic flavoring components.
