Mr. Green was a short-lived carbonated soda offered by SoBe, widely released in the United States. Shipping in April 2002 and first available to consumers in May, it was produced in 12 oz cans, 20 oz bottles, and 1- and 2-liter bottles.[2] It was the first -- and to date, the only[3] -- carbonated beverage offered by SoBe.

The soda's mascot of the same name was described as a "cyber lizard" in SoBe's press release. This character was a modernized version of the lizard found on other SoBe products.[4]

Mr. Green was tinted green, and included ginseng for flavor and added energy.[1]
