The new look is part of the “This is MY World” campaign, which encourages those who love the outdoors to enjoy their favorite pastimes with a refreshing Mello Yello®. And while the product’s packaging will look different, the delicious lemon, lime and orange flavors inside will remain the same.
“Our fans are passionate people, from their loyalty to the smooth citrus taste of Mello Yello® and 300 mph of drag racing to the gritty adventures of the outdoors,” said Bobby Oliver, director, sparkling citrus brands. “This fall, we’re bringing Realtree’s camouflage revolution directly to Mello Yello® packaging for the perfect partnership between two lifestyle brands.”
