It was a 20 oz. This wasn't a repeat of the blackberry ginger ale incident.

Eh, wasn't that bad to me. Like, I wouldn't buy a case of it, but I certainly found it more palatable than the Pepsi with Liquefied Red Hots they had earlier this year.

Black tea and Pepsi reminds me of Moxie.

Maybe it's just me, but the packaging and name makes me think it's supposed to trick people into thinking it is a "protein soda".

Anybody try Mt. Dew Ice yet? Tastes like sparkling water to me. Mt. Dew continues to dominate shelf space.

Sierra Mist isn't caffeinated. This Mtn Dew Ice is actually pretty good! Weird as hell that the two liter bottles at my store are currently cheaper than the 20 oz bottles, though.

It tastes like Mountain Dew made Sprite but had to make sure make it legally distinct so the flavors they added were carbonic acid and moist ass.

It tastes like what you'd replace the tonic in a gin and tonic with if you were trying to sell it to someone who calls a radio station to win tickets to a modern Skrillex concert.

I am unhappy that Diet Coke with Lime is effectively discontinued.

La Croix: when Diet Coke is too spicy.

Coke is rebranding a bunch of their packaging and itís throwing me off.

I liked Mountain Dew Ice when I tried it. Caffeinated Sprite is an accurate descriptor.

How have caffeinated versions of fruit sodas in general not been a thing yet? Aside from Mountain Dew (and its different flavors and clones) and Cheerwine, the closest fruit flavors and caffeine get together is usually as flavors added as an extra ingredient to colas or Dr. Pepper.

Oh, right. Energy drinks. Slipped my mind there. Yeah, easy way to sell a fruit soda for a few more dollars, add a bunch of stuff with weird names and all.

I do like me the occasional energy drink, though.

Pretty sure it's older than that. I remember seeing it when I was living in the college dorms so that would be... older. Let's just leave it at that.

So this is pretty tasty. Basically, a Sunkist but the flavor is dialed down a notch and isn't quite so overwhelming.

Is Pepsi trying to stealth switch back to their old logo? Wawa had a brand new vendor supplied Pepsi rack topped with it.

Huh.

Decent design if it's not too expensive and wasteful.

Worst promo video ever.
