What’s Next for Pepsi NEXT? Pepsi NEXT Cherry Vanilla and Paradise Mango

Back in March I shared with you my impressions and pics of the soon-to-be-released-nationwide new drink from Pepsi called Pepsi NEXT.  Another package has been delivered and it’s the next in the Pepsi NEXT line of products… Pepsi NEXT Cherry Vanilla and Pepsi NEXT Paradise Mango.

Since I’m away from GrubGrade HQ at the moment, I had Alfred Pennyworth snap a pic of the goods I’ll be trying soon.  Cherry Vanilla has been done a bunch, but a mango flavored Pepsi?  Thoughts?

    While I haven’t tried the basic NEXT yet, I’m quite eager to try Paradise Mango. I love the oddball flavors. Although knowing Pepsi I’ll become addicted and then they’ll take it off the market and never bring it back (Holiday Spice).

  2. Daniel N says:

    IMO Both flavors sounds disgusting

    well first off I don’t think a mango flavored pepsi would work…and second, I wish the cola makers would consider the no caffeine people when they do flavored colas…. I love cola but can’t have caffeine, and would love cherry cola..

    mango and cola don’t go together…mango sierra mist or mountain dew? now that would be a good idea…

  5. MP says:

    Pepsi is gross in general.

    I fail to see the point of the whole “next” concept. If you want fewer calories, you drink nasty Diet Pepsi (BTW- Diet DR Pepper is the only tolerable diet soda on the market). If you want the good flavor of Pepsi, you drink the regular stuff, Throwback if you can find it.

    So this neither tastes good like full-on regular Pepsi, nor does it have few enough calories to make it worthwhile as a diet cola. Its taking the best aspects of both regular and diet pepsi, and getting rid of them. It is kind of like having a salad to eat light, then drowning it in ranch dressing.

    How about a Margarita-Lime Pepsi Next? (alcohol optional)

  8. Athena says:

    Yeah, the caramel color will probably overpower the mango taste anyway. Mango Sierra Mist…good suggestion!

    I tried a bottle of each and liked them both. The Paradise Mango Pepsi NEXT is reminiscent of the old Pepsi Summer Mix. The other reminded me of every other Cherry Vanilla flavor on the market.

    I hope they stick around.
