Remember Clearly Canadian? It’s Back in New Hampshire and Here’s Where You Can Buy It

Clearly, Canadian sparkling water was a real big hit back in the '90s, right up there with butterfly clips and Lisa Frank binders! I am guessing it was a little before my time, because I can't remember ever tasting this sweet nectar, and my parents are BIG seltzer drinkers. According to dailyhive.com, Clearly Canadian came in delightful flavors like Orchard Peach, Mountain Blackberry, Country Raspberry, and Wild Cherry.
The article states that for some reason back in 2009, production for Clearly Canadian stopped, and people were outraged! By 2013, some folks who missed the bubbly goodness started a movement to bring it back.
I didn't realize the hype around this beverage until I saw Kari Emily Lindstrom post to the U local New Hampshire Facebook page, saying that she spotted Clearly Canadian back in New Hampshire (at River Street Market in Jaffrey, to be specific)! The post took off like wildfire with over 350 comments and 109 shares:
Here's what the people are saying:
Andy: "All we need now is the jolt cola and the sobe"
North Conway Mountain Dreams Vacation Rental:
"Yay!!!! Black cherry was a fav"
Brittany: "Peach was my favorite"
People also mentioned other local stores where they've seen Clearly Canadian being sold! Here they are:
World Market, Salem, NH
Crowley's Variety & Grill, Farmington, NH
Park & Go, Wilmot, NH
Borderline Beverage, Somersworth, NH
Rapid Refill (on DW Highway), Merrimack, NH
Know of any others? Feel free to let us know in the comments! Oh, and you can also order them on Amazon, but I think we should try to support local businesses instead of Jeff Bezos whenever we can.
