According to a recent survey commissioned by Simply Spiked Lemonadejust over half (51%) of Canadians 19+ have lied to avoid conflict and/or protect someone’s feelings. New-to-Canada Simply Spiked Lemonade, on the other hand, is all about what’s real, all the time.

Made using REAL fruit juice and with an honest-to-goodness taste that’s shaking up alcohol cooler aisles across the country, Simply Spiked is bringing REAL taste to Canada this summer with a refreshingly simple shake-up and three distinct flavours:

  • Signature Lemonade: Bright and refreshing, with a perfect balance of sweet lemonade and fresh, lemony tartness.
  • Strawberry Lemonade: Ripe, jammy strawberry notes combined with an elevated, tart lemonade finish.
  • Blueberry Lemonade: Unique and refreshing, with ripe blueberry notes blended with smooth lemonade flavour.

What’s more, Simply Spiked is daring the country to ditch the fakeness by challenging Canadians to keep it REAL this summer – and leading by example by creating the Keep It Real Can: the world’s first lie-detector-in-a-can, to help Canadians to serve up some Cold. Hard. Truth. Featuring Galvanic Skin Response to monitor sweat gland activity and Pulse Rate electrodes to measure heartbeat, the Simply Spiked ‘Keep It Real Can’ spots the fakes and determines when someone is truly keeping it real.

Keep It Real Can is as a separate fun and cheeky product to help consumers get REAL, and will be at Simply sampling events where consumers can try the Spiked Lemonade and share their REAL reviews.

Visit and follow @simplyspikedca on Instagram to keep it real with the rest of Canada, and look out for sweet summer pop-ups near you for your chance to try Simply Spiked and the Keep It Real Can. Participate by July 15, 2023 and log your review for a chance to win a $5000 prize for the REALEST reviewer!
