The 'revived' Beep carton, 2012.

Beep is a fruit-juice-based drink brand, made by Farmers Cooperative Dairy of Nova Scotia, Canada. Originally produced in the 1960s, it was discontinued in March 2010,[2] and temporarily revived on 11 June 2012, following announcements the previous week.[3] It was revived in a vintage carton, not the carton it was sold in when it was discontinued.[4]

According to the carton, the drink contains water, sugar, fruit juices, citric acid, orange pulp, natural flavours, sodium citrate, canola oil, modified corn starch, sodium benzoate, caramel colour, annatto, and ascorbic acid. The fruit juices are orange, apple, apricot, prune, and pineapple.
