  1. I tried the Sam’s Choice Shells & Cheese. I had the Aged Cheddar, and it was by far the saltiest mac and cheese I’ve ever had and with very little cheese flavor. Then I looked and that one little cup has over 1200 mg of sodium.

    I ate it, because I hate throwing food away, but I definitely will not be getting those again.

  2. I need these Summerades.. I will stock up on this stuff, provided it doesn’t contain artificial sweetner.. oh how I miss the Sparkling lemonade made by Sunkist.

    1. For the last few weeks my ultimate favorite ‘Great Value Sparkling Original Lemonade AND Strawberry Lemonade’ has disappeared from Walmart shelves – and I admit I took the last few bottles. I emailed the company and received a ‘corporate speak’ reply that the product would return at a later time. Now this ‘Summerades Sparkling Original Lemonade AND Strawberry Lemonade’ has shown up on some store shelves. At one store I bought the last 9 bottles on the shelf (since my supply was exhausted and this is basically all the soda I drink). Will search other stores for more since it looks like this ‘rebranding’ is now my new favorite soda. Great taste! Summertime here I come – my favorite beverage with a little alcohol over ice – floating on a raft in the pool!

      1. Extremely bad news: Walmart has permanently discontinued the Summerades Sparkling Original Lemonade and the Summerades Sparkling Strawberry Flavored Lemonade from inventory for future orders! Did not try the Key Lime or Black Cherry flavors – and these too are probably not available any more. Products were made by Cott Beverages Inc., Tampa, FL, 1-888-260-3776, 1 (Walmart beverages) – please call to let them know how much you want these products added to the Walmart beverage inventory. Thank you.

    2. I LOVE these Summerades! Key Lime is the tartest, Strawberry is my favorite, Black Cherry is DIVINE, and the regular lemonade is perfect too! You can’t lose!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE The lemon and lime are from summer are. Bought all I could
    From Walmart for about a month now no where to be found! Bring it back, don’t know what to. Drink!!

  4. Was in love with the Lime Lemonade Summerades from WalMart…..They are now not carrying any Summerades anymore …..OMG antwhere else ?

  5. RE: Summerades Lemonade:
    I think Walmart has some little guy that follows people around determining when they have a product that people really, really love and then they set out to make sure that Arkansas HQ DELETES it from inventory. OMG, the IT world is being taken over by 14 year old middle schooler who, if a “percieved” problem is not resolvable by an algorithm then they are just simply “lost.” Experience doesn’t seem to count for anything any more.

  6. Oh my gosh. Got the strawberry and black cherry summerades lemonades and they were wonderful. Now I find out there is no more… What a crock. Should at least the customers before dumping the best flavor fun we’ve had in years. What a wonderful treat. Please bring it back.
