No more Cran•Mango???

I'm tellin' you, for the past 6 months or so I've been going crazy. I've looked high and low for this stuff cuz it was one of my favorite drinks. My wife will tell you that's it gotten on her last nerve how I run to the Juice section of whatever store we're in. It didn't matter if it was Superfresh, Giant, Safeway, Shoppers Food Warehouse, Target, Walmart, Weis, whatever. I used to make random stops at stores all over the DC area in search for Ocean Spray's Cranberry Mango juice. After searching endlessly for this product, I finally gave in and emailed Ocean Spray directly. The response received back was not what I had desired. I had sort of given up hope a while back that they still carried it and their answer confirmed my suspicions.

Hello G. Mo,

Thanks for contacting us over here at Ocean Spray, where we pride ourselves on more than 75 years of taking great care in harvesting and manufacturing our products. It’s nice to hear from people who are as into cranberries as much as we are.

We’re glad to hear you chose us, but we’re very sorry that you were disappointed you couldn’t find us at your local store. We immediately shared your feedback with our marketing department.

Unfortunately we are no longer producing Cran·Mango® Cranberry Mango Juice Drink. Although we considered it to be a very fine product, consumer demand was not what we had anticipated. Consequently, a marketing decision was made to stop production. We are sorry that our answer could not be more favorable.

Thanks again for choosing Ocean Spray. Be sure to visit us sometime at, where you can get all the latest information on our products, find delicious recipes, and join the Cranberry Club for special news and offers. And don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any more questions or comments. Or if you just want to say hello, we’d like that too.

Tastes Good. Good For You.
Signature of Mr. Robert Stuve
And Your Friends at Ocean Spray

This sucks. I like a few of the other Cran drinks, but this one was my favorite. All I got for them is one more question. If it's discontinued, why do you jokers still have it on your website then??? Huh????
Cran•Mango® Cranberry Mango Juice Drink

Don't you hate it when a manufacturer discontinues something you really liked? I can't tell you how many things I used to eat/drink that are no longer with us. RIP Ocean Spray Cranberry Mango

I've never tried the Cran-Mango but it sounds like it was tasty.

You could always make your own cran-mango mix. Buy a bottle of cranberry and some mango juice, it might even taste better.
