    "come in" in this sentence

    [FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']Hi teachers, I want to know the exact meaning of the phrase "come in" in the following sentence:

    This is Fizzle, a popular candy from the 1950s. You can put it in water or you can put it on your tongue. It comes in Root Beer, fruit punch, lemon lime or orange.

    I look it up in the dictionary and I find the closest meaning is " to have a part in something", is it correct? Thx for your help~

    [/FONT]

    It's not the phrase that you should be looking at, RedG, it's 'come' as a verb, meaning 'available' and 'in' as a preposition.

    It means the same as,

    'available in ... '
