Sobey's has a Maritimes aisle, I see it there all the time, along with Crush Birch Beer
Which Sobey's is this? I don't see that!

I also thought this too, why would you want crushed pineapple in a can?

I still don't get the connection with Maritime or Ne*fie's (are we still allowed to use that word here?...I know a few who say its not derogatory but rfd can be sensitive at times).
I would associate a pineapple drink with islanders or people from a more tropical climate.
Also what the ? is a birch beer Crush and isn't birtch a tree, so it tatse's like sugary tree bark?

I'm a pineapple connoisseur, but not really into soda, I would try it once to cross it off my bucket list.

Since ist rare + hard to find I now need to find me a can of pineapple crush, I vote for a group buy.

For some unknown reason Pineapple Crush soda sells really well in Newfoundland. Better than anywhere else.
Same with the Birch Beer, although I do beg to understand what market research Pepsi is doing to conclude this information.
Birch Beer is really good. It looks like cream soda but...heck I have not had any in so long I forget what it tastes like!

Duckdown is from Brampton so it was likely a Brampton Sobeys as I have seen it here too. I was at No Frills today and noticed the tags for the Birch Beer and Crush Pineapple all had DNO on them. I believe that means Do Not Order so it may not be available much longer at No Frills. Note these weren't hand written tags. Also someone mentioned Crush Lime, they had a shelf tag for it but none on the shelf.

I also noticed another Pineapple pop in a bottle near the Crush Pineapple. It was a Jamaican drink but I can't remember the brand name.

They are islanders. Tastes vary in different parts of the country and so does product selection. There are lots of products you find in the Maritimes that you don't find elsewhere.

Crush Pineapple is selling for $.99 a can at No Frills in Brampton, so if you want some, you better hurry up as it may not be around much longer.

I have seen Grace before and recognize their label but this was a new brand. It was on the shelf under the Grace products. I just remember it saying it was Jamaican but don't recall the brand name on the label. They are all in the same general area in the pop section.

In Calgary, I finally found a place that carries it. They are called "Billingsgate" seafood market. Unfortunately, they are Out of Stock, and will be restocking. If anyone finds some in Calgary, please let me know!!!!

i remember having crush pineapple once somewhere in the GTA and i liked it.. but never saw it again...

also, i never knew there was crush lime until about 3-4 years ago... and supposedly its been around since the 80s.. but i never saw it in stores growing up in markham.. and i hung out at the convenience stores playing arcades all the time lol
It's still around here in Quebec. The best lime drink was the old Beckers Lemon and Lime before they changed the mix to a sprite/team/7 up mix. Thats got to be going back 30 years now

I haven't tried Birch Beer but I would have guessed it might taste similar to Root beer (made from roots of a tree)


I might have to try both some time soon given this thread!

There's always going to be oddities around the world... for example, Hawaiian pizza was neither invented in Hawaii nor popular in Hawaii.

alot of our traditions come from the days when Newfoundland was a part of England, so some of the foods are quite different.

We love Toutins, its fried bread, with butter, Salt Beef, we put stuffing on fries and cover it with gravy. Roast chicken chips are very popular.
