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.
