Wegmans Announces It Will No Longer Sell This Item


You have just one week left to buy Wegmans Brand Sodas when you go grocery shopping. Wegmans said Wednesday it will no longer sell its Brand Sodas after its current inventory is gone.

The reason?

The Brand Sodas contain artificial ingredients, aspartame and high fructose corn syrup, which do not meet Wegmans’ “Food You Feel Good About” requirements, which stands for no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Wegmans says it will not be reproducing any additional Wegmans Brand Soda.

Wegmans reacted to the photo of a sign at a store in Rochester announcing the product discontinuation that was shared by Rochester television media.

“As mentioned on the sign, we are discontinuing our Wegmans Brand Soda. Our Food You Feel Good About banner stands for no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. We are discontinuing Wegmans Brand Soda because it contains artificial ingredients like aspartame and high fructose corn syrup. We are committed to our mission of helping customers live healthier, better lives through exceptional food, and we want you to feel confident in our Wegmans Brand products.”
