Sprite Soda is a caffeine-free citrus soda made by the Coca-Cola company.
It originated in Europe under Coke's Fanta brand but was brought to the USA in 1961 as competition to 7-Up.
Although Sprite has never contained caffeine, there seems to be a lot of confusion in regards to its caffeine content. Sprite is the 22nd most popular drink entered into our Death By Caffeine web app.
