Dewey Stevens Wine Coolers

Am I the only one who remembers Dewey Stevens wine coolers?

These were around back when Seagrams and Bartles & Jaymes still made wine coolers, as opposed to the flavored malt beverages they mostly make now. Even though people still refer to them as "wine coolers," most of the ones made today don't contain wine.

Anyway, Dewey Stevens wine coolers were good. I'm pretty sure that the flavor was passionfruit, but I can't find any proof of that. In fact, I can't find much information about them at all.

Made by Anheuser-Busch, these coolers were billed as a lighter alternative to traditional wine coolers, and they had 1/3 fewer calories. The commercial even depicted women working out at the gym.

I thought Dewey Stevens wine coolers were great. They were sweet, but not overly so--very refreshing. As I recall, they weren't around long.

My wife and I loved Dewey Stevens coolers, it was the only wine cooler that I have ever liked. Since I can't have a Dewey, I don't drink wine coolers any more. Why, oh why, won't they make them again? PLEASE!!!
