Delaware Punch (Wikipedia)

Delaware Punch was a fruit-flavored soft drink. Its formula used a blend of fruit flavors, with grape (Methyl anthranilate) being the most prominent. It was not carbonated and was caffeine-free.

Delaware Punch

Delaware Punch was created by Thomas E. Lyons in 1913. The brand was owned by The Coca-Cola Company, but has been discontinued since 2020.

Delaware Punch was named for the Delaware grape cultivar from which its flavor was derived. The grape was first grown in Delaware County, Ohio, and the drink therefore had no affiliation with the state of Delaware.

In October 2020, as part of their efforts to scale back on underperforming brands during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Coca-Cola Company had announced the underperforming regional brands such as Tab, Northern Neck Ginger Ale, Coca-Cola Life, Diet Coke Feisty Cherry, Zico and Delaware Punch will be discontinued by the end of 2020, in favor of focusing more on their popular brands.[citation needed]
