A few months ago, I was one of the first to sample Pepsi Next before it hit the shelves. It was so much fun receiving a box of ice-cold soda delivered to my door. I was totally psyched when another box of ice-cold soda arrived, but how would Pepsi top the last delivery?
With some flavor yo!
Pepsi Next has kicked up summer a notch by adding Cherry Vanilla and Passion Mango to the Pepsi Next line. Because nothing says summer like fruity flavor after all.
I was certain the Cherry Vanilla would appeal to my sweet-loving tastebuds, which it totally did. But I seriously questioned the Paradise Mango move… I love mangos, but I am not a fan of most mango-flavored foods/beverages. I suggested to my mango-loving husband that we should split the beverage as a taste test. After one sip, I regretted my suggestion. I should have kept the Paradise Mango Pepsi Next all to myself! It was soooo good. I am seriously considering hiding the remaining can. (Shhh don’t tell my hubs.)
It may not taste like it, even to my hyper-sensitive taste buds, but like the original Pepsi Next the new summer flavors boast 60% less sugar than Pepsi. I am NOT a diet-drink girl, I go for the real stuff. So it is shocking, but would actually choose a flavored Pepsi Next over the real deal. That says something.
Here’s the skinny:
- Pepsi 41 g sugar – Pepsi Next 15 g sugar
- Pepsi 150 calories – Pepsi Next 60 calories
- Pepsi 30 mg sodium – Pepsi Next 60 mg sodium
- Pepsi 41 grams total carbs – Pepsi Next 16 grams total carbs
Here’s the bad news, you knew there would be some. Like all good summer flings, the summer flavors will only be available for a short time. Boo hoo!
Look for the summer flavors on shelves later this month. While you are waiting, print this BOGO coupon so you can stock up. Which flavor will be your sweet summer fling?
