Worcester’s Polar Seltzer celebrates a limited run of seasonal flavors twice each year. Last fall, as we were bundling up, we had some chilly-weather flavors to look forward to. Now, with the weather getting sunnier and the temperatures heating up, the beverage company is revealing its summer flavors for 2016.
After the wild popularity of the extremely limited Unicorn Kisses last month, Polar is keeping the fruity flavors coming: four of this year’s summer seltzers are brand new, one is a repeat from last year.
Starting Sunday, in addition to releasing the seasonal flavors in the standard one-liter bottles, Polar will sell three of the styles in cans for the first time ever.
Tangerine Limeade (available in cans)
This light but vibrant citrus combo would make quite the poolside pal this summer. Its flavors are a bit more subtle than other seasonals, but quite refreshing nonetheless.
Watermelon Margarita (available in cans)
A classic summer fruit in beverage form (without any seeds). Watermelon Margarita is a warm-weather treat that could be mixed as easily as it could be taken straight-up.
Raspberry Pink Lemonade (available in cans)
One of the most pronounced flavors of this year’s seasonals, Raspberry Pink Lemonade puts just the slightest twist on a classic summer beverage while letting the sweetness outshine the hints of tartness.
A repeat flavor from last summer, Pomegranate Sangria is a juicy fan favorite. Don’t worry: just like with Watermelon Margarita, you don’t need to be 21 to drink it.
Perhaps the most fragrant of the bunch, Mango Berry is just as pleasant on the tastebuds as it is on the nostrils.
Also, as a bonus this year, Polar released a special Cinco de Mayo flavor last week.
Jalapeno Citrus Margarita
Nicknamed the #FizzyDevil, Jalapeno Citrus Margarita is a bold seltzer that encompasses the jalapeno flavor without actually being spicy. The peppery flavor is kept at bay by the lemon and lime hints that accompany.
