Kickstart Black Cherry was released in Canada on February 22, 2016. This is most likely due to the success of Fruit Punch and Orange Citrus newly launched in Canada in 2015. Additionally, Kickstart Black Cherry and Kickstart Orange Citrus were both launched in various Arabian countries (including Saudi Arabia and Qatar) the following year. Canada and Arabia currently the only other areas outside of the United States that have Kickstart. Black Cherry Kickstart was discontinued in Canada in February of 2018, shortly after the release of Mango Lime.
