Portland Punch -- is it gone?

Sharon | Oct 18, 200105:08 AM     37

Portland Punch was a concentrated bottled punch base which seemed to be a local specialty in the Pacific Northwest. You added water and/or soda pop to make a big bowlful -- this was a standard feature on the side table at family parties. The flavor was a memorably delicious fresh natural-tasting blackberry blend. Grownups loved it and so did kids. (Hawaiian Punch isn't even in the same universe, much less the same league.)

Every time I go to the Portland area I look for it in the stores, but haven't seen it in, say, over ten years. Does anyone out there know anything about its fate?
