Found a weird Pepsi flavor, strange but good!

Would you believe Pepsi has a Strawberry and Cream Pepsi out in diet?

It's not bad....tastes kind of like red Twizzlers™! I'm not normally much of a Soda drinkerr, other than the occasional Dr Pepper (diet), but this ain't bad!

Strange?

Cola with lime flavoring is not strange, diet or hi-test. Cola with strawberry and cream flavoring is.

I work in San Francisco and live close to Berkeley. That makes an expert on "strange." Trust me on this one.

Yeah, I'd believe it. Here in Indiana, we get strange products all the time. Indiana seems to be a test market. Some of them are pretty bad, some aren't!

I work for Pepsi and I get to see how all the new flavors sell (or don't sell) and these Diet Strawberry and Cream Jazz colas don't sell very well. I've had people tell me it's some of the worst pop they've ever had, and I've seen people returning single bottles of it to stores because they didnt like it.

Yuck! I can't hardly stand soda anymore.

I probably drink about 5 sodas per year.

i tried that berries and cream or somesuch Dr. Pepper and thought is was not very good. I am a basic Coke guy really, but I mainly drink water these days. Started to realized how much soda I was drinking and how many worthless calories were in there. I have gout and the artificial sweetners really seemed to cause flareups, so I avoid most diet type, artificial sweetened things.

I remember the commercial parody that Saturday Night did of it: Crystal Gravy, or something like that. The words "Finally, you can see your meat" appearing to the sound of "Right Now" by Van Halen, while a cast member (Kevin Nealon?) splashed it on his face.

Just wait till Starbuck's introduces their new Broccocino flavor. All the zesty taste of broccoli combined with a rich, full cappucino!

I liked crystal pepsi. Coke II can go to hell and stay there though.
