Update 6/25/12: Read our full review of Sierra Mist Natural Strawberry Kiwi Splash
Original Story 5/3/12: Sierra Mist is making a “Splash” with yet another limited time flavor that uses that word in the title. As we hinted in our story about Mountain Dew Dark Berry, that new product is called Sierra Mist Natural Strawberry Kiwi Splash (wow, that’s a mouthful!)
Borrowing a naming convention the brand has used for 6 years on Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, as well as on the short-lived Sierra Mist Ruby Splash in 2009, Sierra Mist Natural Strawberry Kiwi Splash is slated to be around this summer, with availability from May through August.
Per a description listed on the Gillette Pepsi-Cola Companies website, this product will be available in 20 oz plastic bottles, as well as in 12-packs of 12 oz cans. A zero calorie version will also be available, under the name Diet Sierra Mist Strawberry Kiwi Splash. Like all Sierra Mist products, both the regular and diet will be caffeine free.
Following the positioning of Sierra Mist Natural, Pepsi claims that this new Kiwi Strawberry flavor features “no artificial ingredients, no artificial colors, no artificial flavor, no preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.” It’s most likely sweetened with “real sugar,” which historically has meant a combination of cane & beet sugar.
