ATLANTA -- October 10, 2013

With a chill in the air and the holidays around the corner, people across the
country are working up a thirst for the tastes of the season. This year,
Sprite is doing its part to help make everything “berry” and bright with the
introduction of an all-new flavor: Sprite Cranberry.

The new Sprite Cranberry and Sprite Zero Cranberry will be available for a
limited time through the holidays. Both products take the refreshing taste of
traditional Sprite and combines it with a splash of sweet and tart cranberry
notes. It is the first flavor innovation from Sprite since Sprite Remix in
2005.

“We’re incorporating one of the most popular flavors of the season with the
No. 1 lemon-lime brand to celebrate the holidays,” said Kim Paige, Associate
Vice President, Sprite Brands, The Coca-Cola Company. “Over the years, our
fans have increasingly demanded Sprite with cranberry flavor, and we’re
excited to give it to them with the crisp, clear, caffeine-free, naturally
flavored taste they already love about Sprite.”

Sprite Cranberry and Sprite Zero Cranberry are perfect as stand-alone
beverages or mixed in specialty holiday-themed recipes. For example:

Sprite Cranberry Sparkle combines four cups of Sprite Cranberry with three
cups of orange juice, one cup of pomegranate juice, ¼ cup of lemon juice, one
teaspoon of nutmeg, one teaspoon of cinnamon and fresh or dried cranberries as
a garnish. (makes two liters)

The new flavor will appear on store shelves nationwide for a limited time
only, arriving in mid-October and available through the New Year. Sprite
Cranberry and Sprite Zero Cranberry will be available in 2-liter bottles,
Fridge Packs (12-ounce cans) and 20-ounce bottles (Sprite Cranberry only), and
will be sold in mass market, convenience and drug stores nationwide. You can
