Ranking of the classic Capri Sun flavors

Does Capri Sun live up to the nostalgia hype?

Video transcription

KATIE MATHER: Did you know that Capri Sun is the first juice drink that has been sold in a bag that can stand up on its own?


Also by chance, Capri Sun has been in space, which is strange when you consider that I just said it can stand up on its own. But the real question is, does Capri Suns still hold up today?


So in the end, what we need to do is rank five Capri Sun flavors and decide, out of two factors, whether these hold the test of time. Of course, we go with taste. Am I repulsed immediately or do I enjoy it?

And then the second factor, which I think is probably the most important, is nostalgia. What memories do I associate with each taste? And our Capri Sun lineup includes grape geysers, strawberry kiwi surf, wild cherry waterfalls, fruit punch and Pacific cooler.

OK, the first one we should try is the grape geyser.


OK, that’s pretty good. And this has unlocked a deep-seated memory that I know I’ll have gymnastics class next time and I’m so excited, but I’ll have to run a mile in the clothes I wore to school and then I’ll have to sit in a classroom in the clothes I’ve just run a mile in.

Next, strawberry kiwi surf. Oh God. (VOCALIZES) You can just taste it – feel it afterwards – it’s so sweet. This makes me think my mom wrote an embarrassing note on my napkin for lunch and everyone reads it and laughs at me.

Next, wild cherry waterfalls.


Oh God. Practice! It does not unlock any memories, for I certainly never had when I went to primary school because I hated it.

OK, now fruit punch, a classic. Some Mario ad there.


Oh God. Oh God! This is so disgusting! (laughs) This one is so bad! It makes me think that next period will be the English class and we should read popcorn, which I always hated.

OK, Pacific cooler.


Yes, this is like a spicy fruit punch. But this just tastes like going on a class trip and either being separated from your friends or not being able to sit with them. This is how it tastes here. Bad. Hate it.

So in terms of location, we go from best to worst, because I think we had a lot more bad ones.

OK, best– grape geyser, closely followed by wild cherries. The strawberry kiwi was absolutely disgusting. It becomes the middle ground because the nostalgia factor is really huge for this one. Finally, we have these two absolute abominations that also have ads on them. Fruit punch and Pacific cooler are so disgusting that I do not know what to do with the rest of this juice in here.

Here you go. Should you ever be in trouble or have a craving for a Capri Sun, you now know that not only do they unlock a lot of dangerous but amazing memories, but some of them are really, really disgusting.
