“ Brand: Pepsi / Type: Soft drinks „
For a while I've quite liked mixing Pepsi with a little lime cordial, although it does kind of weird I really do like it. So I was pretty excited when I saw that there was going to be a proper one - Pepsi Max Citrus Freeze. Well the citrus part is misleading because it's just lime flavouring, not lemon or other citrus flavours.
I bought a 2 litre bottle when it was on offer, but I was very disappointed with this product and was not impressed. I was expecting there to be a subtle hint of lime. Well the lime is so subtle that I couldn't even taste it! And neither could others I had round for a party who tried it, so I knew it wasn't just me that couldn't taste it!
I fired off an email to Britvic customer services who replied with a "Sorry but not all our products are to everyone's taste". It felt like an automated response that didn't listen at all to my complaint.
Well I had figured that maybe it was a dud batch, one that didn't have enough flavouring put in. So I bought another bottle (still on offer) from a different shop. But it was the same, no citrus at all.
I think I'll stick to mixing my own.
I tried this for the first time only last week. I had heard that this flavour of Pepsi was out and that they are promoting this flavour along with a new flavour of Dorito's. I don't mind to drink normal Pepsi or Diet Coke, but I do like the flavoured ones. So this one was of interest to me.
I bought this in the 600ml bottle at the Cinema and it cost me a whopping £2.60!!! I would assume that the right price of this in a normal shop would be around the £1 mark. I think this comes in a 2 litre bottle which they normally cost around £1.80, but they can often be on offer in Supermarkets.
So this has the flavour of normal Pepsi Max but with a Citrus tastes mixed through. I admit I didn't read the label of this so can't comment if this is Lemon and Lime in it, but I could certainly taste the Lime and not the Lemon - if there was any Lemon in here. This reminds me of the Citrus Diet Coke but a little bit sweeter, but I find Pepsi Max to be a sweeter Juice. The taste of this is nice enough and I do like the Lime flavouring through this. I drank this when it was nice and cold, but when it was a little warmer that I felt this didn't taste quite so nice. Best served nice and Cold.
Per 100ml this doesn't have many calories. I don't have the bottle to hand but it definitely doesn't even have 1 calorie, so good for a calorie controlled lifestyle.
I will be buying this again as it is a nice Juice and a change from the usual. Worth a try if you spot this.
