Thanks to their sponsorship of the NFL Seattle Seahawks, Jones Soda has released a special Seahawks Collector Pack, featuring 5 new, football-related flavors: Natural Field Turf Soda, Sports Cream Soda, Perspiration Soda, Dirt Soda, and Sweet Victory Soda.
From the rumor mill… a recent trademark filing indicates that a new mojito-inspired flavor of Sierra Mist may be in the works, under the name Sierra Mist Mojito Splash (and Sierra Mist Free Mojito Splash). You may recall that Jones Soda has had some success with limited edition mojito soft drinks, so there might be some merit to this filing.
Mountain Dew Amp Energy Drink hits the big time, as Pepsi uses the obscure brand to sponsor Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2008. That’s NASCAR, folks. You know, stock car racing? Anyway, it’s a big deal for a brand that is currently only #5 in energy drink sales overall.
Putting to shame the other lame flavor extensions found in the Tropicana Twister Soda lineup (Tropicana Twister Soda Citrus, Tropicana Twister Soda Orange, and Tropicana Twister Soda Strawberry), Tropicana Twister Soda Grape was surprisingly “not bad.” That doesn’t mean it was great, but I also didn’t spit it out of mouth when I drank it.
Like the rest of the Tropicana Twister Soda line from Pepsi (which also includes previously-reviewed Citrus and Orange flavors), Tropicana Twister Soda Strawberry is underwhelming and poorly executed. The flavor is extremely fake and syrupy. It’s not a pleasurable experience to take part in consuming this soda.
