Cactus Cooler, distinguished by its orange, yellow, and green label, is an orange-pineapple soft drink sold in the United States, mainly in the Southern California area and surrounding Southwestern United States.[1][2] It is part of the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, and was previously distributed under the Canada Dry brand name. Cactus Cooler was inspired by the 1960s cartoon show The Flintstones in which a fictional Cactus Cooler was the favorite drink of character Fred Flintstone.

Cactus Cooler is also seen on the popular television show Weeds. It is also referenced in season 4 episode 2 of the television show "Psych". The main character Shawn requests a mini fridge filled with Cactus Cooler.
