    Coca-Cola Clear Debuts in Japan (Video)

    It’s been a while since the nation of Japan gave us another reason to be envious of their food and beverage innovations. Now, everybody who misses that brief period when Crystal Pepsi was available in grocery stories has just such a reason, with the debut of Coca-Cola Clear.  Coca-Cola Clear was reportedly conceived by Coke’s Japan […]

  • Lemon Lime & Cucumber Sprite Coming to the UK

    Lemon Lime & Cucumber Sprite Coming to the UK

    There’s a magnificent Jewish-style deli near my apartment, and I often go there for a sandwich when the mood strikes. One aspect of the deli experience I have not yet tried is cucumber soda, specifically Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray, which is considered by purists to be the perfect accompaniment to a pastrami sandwich. I might be […]

  • Coca-Cola Frozen Coming to Japan

    Coca-Cola Frozen Coming to Japan

    Japan continues to stay ahead of the western world in the realm of soft drinks. Today the internet is abuzz about just such a drink, called simply (and probably self-explanatorily) Coca-Cola Frozen. North American readers are no-doubt familiar with the concept of a Frozen Coke. But the Japanese Coca-Cola Frozen is a unique variation on […]

    Georgia Peach and California Raspberry Coke Released

    Times have been better for the big soft drink companies in the US.

    Salted Caramel Pepsi: For the North American Holiday Season

    I, like many of you, I assume, have been extremely bummed about Pepsi‘s holiday observance in Japan, recently announced by the brand, but not available anywhere outside of that country. Turns out it was a lot of strife for nothing, since now North American yuletide revelers have their own Christmastime Pepsi product: Salted Caramel Pepsi. […]

  • Pepsi Christmas Cola Tastes Like Japanese Holiday Cake

    Pepsi Christmas Cola Tastes Like Japanese Holiday Cake

    In North America, Coca-Cola is probably more associated with Christmas than Pepsi is, thanks to those iconic advertisements starring Santa Claus (there’s even a persistent but untrue urban legend that the modern visualization of Santa was invented by Coke’s advertising team way back in the day). But over in Japan, the land of food and […]

    Pepsi Light Dumbbell: Exercise While You Chug Soda

    Pepsi‘s zero-calorie Pepsi Light isn’t the sort of thing you’d want to use to replace fluids while exercising, but that hasn’t stopped the brand from developing a crazy exercise-themed novelty bottle for the soda, known as the Pepsi Light Dumbbell. You might be thinking that the Pepsi Light Dumbbell is an April Fool’s Day joke […]

    Mondrian Pepsi Can by Andrea Salamino: “World is not just Red” (Pics)

    Italian designer Andrea Salamino was evidently fed up with the monotony and repetition that characterizes the vast majority of advertising, marketing, and branding, and instead of just complaining or sighing angrily, he decided to create the Pepsi can he wanted to see in the world – and whipped up the Mondrian Pepsi can to demonstrate […]

    Diet Pepsi Recipe Change-Up Now On Shelves

    For the first time in 30 years, the Diet Pepsi you see at your local grocery store will be significantly different, thanks to Pepsi‘s pledge to remove the artificial (and controversial) sweetener aspartame from the soda‘s formulation. The change is not some fly-by-night affair, with the new Diet Pepsi recipe reported to be around two years in […]

    New from Sprite is a campaign that plays on its iconic “Obey Your Thirst” tagline – “Obey your Verse.” In this case, “your verse” means famous lyrics from some of hip hop’s most respected giants, including Notorious B.I.G. and Nas, which have been emblazoned on a line of 16 different limited edition cans.
