Hey there, 7-Up with antioxidants: While many of us may love to watch you leave, we certainly hate to see you go. It’s just that your Mixed Berry and Pomegranate Antioxidant flavors, despite having their pretty labels festooned with sporty pomegranate and dew-droppy cherries, do not contain any real fruit. You do have added Vitamin E, we know that, we understand, but it’s the world that won’t listen. And now you’re being taken off the market, they say for the sake of regular and diet 7-Up, so there can be “consistency across its brands.” Does this mean boarding school? Blame your parent company, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. Life is unfair. [AP]
