Zima Has Officially Returned To The United States, Now Being Sold At Wal-Mart

It's been more than a year since I tracked down the whereabouts of Zima to Japan. Since then, only rumors that the popular, lemon-lime adult beverage of the 1990s would return stateside.

Well, thanks to Zima's distributor, Molson-Coors, the clear malt beverage has returned to the United States, and is currently being sold at Wal-Mart.

A Wal-Mart Communications representative confirmed through email that Zima is, "hitting shelves at Walmart stores now," in a "limited edition" release.

On May 20, Zima's Facebook page changed their cover image, confirming a national reintroduction, "on or before July 4th." Talk about patriotism.

As the return of Zima spreads 90s nostalgia to the masses, Zima aficionados must be aware that unlike our unfading memories of Zima, this national reintroduction of the alcoholic beverage will not last forever.

"We'll sell as much as we have, but when it sells out, its gone," according to Wal-Mart communications.

However, if the U.S.'s Zima supply runs short this summer, there are alternatives in the form of this proxy service that will ship internationally. They hit me up on Twitter —  because they probably think I'm obsessed with Zima. I might be.

Hey, cheers 'Murica.
