If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have missed the devastating Capri Sun news. More than 5,700 cases of Capri Sun’s Wild Cherry flavored juice pouches are being voluntarily recalled due to possible contamination with cleaning solution. According to a statement from Kraft Heinz, “Diluted cleaning solution, which is used on food processing equipment, was inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of our factories.” The affected products are ones with a “Best When Used By” date of June 25, 2023. If you have purchased these items and they fit this criteria you can bring them back to the store you purchased them from for a refund.

Capri Sun Flavors

This story got us thinking at The Getup Crew. Now Ramiro says he hasn’t had a Capri Sun since before he had pubic hair. Pebbles said she gets them for the kids in her life but doesn’t necessarily drink them. Melissa doesn’t like or drink them at all. But Leroy and producer Aaron consider themselves Capri Sun experts and have a lot to weigh in about the situation, more so which Capri Sun flavors are their favorites.

This has become a pretty heated debate in the studio this morning. When determining their favorite flavors, they took into account: deliciousness, enjoyment and according to Leroy “drinks that make you feel like summertime.” Leroy says he actually puts his in the freezer so some ice chips can form. “I’m not a fan when they’re warm. They HAVE to be cold.” Leroy also adds that Capri Sun also makes a great mixer for alcoholic beverages. Speaking of, you can check out the ratings for IPAs in Massachusetts. Leroy’s only gripe: they’re too small. Aaron’s gripe: the straw is impossible to get in.

And now, without further ado, we present to you Capri Sun flavors ranked by The Getup Crew. (Well actually Leroy and Aaron.) Enjoy your Capri Suns!

  • Leroy: #5 Splash Cooler

    Splash Cooler: Clean taste and very refreshing.

  • Leroy #4: Pacific Cooler

    To me it’s the same as the Tropical Punch flavor, but I use this to make drinks that end up in red cups.

    1. I want to be somewhere tropical but I’m stuck in cold New England weather, I close my eyes, take a sip, and in my mind I’m on the beach.   
  • Leroy #2: Strawberry Kiwi

    1. I love summertime and this tastes like summertime in a pouch.
