Pepsi Holiday Spice, has anyone else tried it yet?

After drinking a glass of this, I still don't know if I like it. When you first sip it you get a fruity flavor, then you start tasting the spices they added in. It might work for mixed drink, but considing I don't drink someone else will have to chime in about that.

It does taste Christmasey, I give it that. But I don't think I'll be buying anymore of it.

I didn't know it was out yet. I'll have to try it - a cinnamon-cola-flavored drink sounds intriguing.

Sounds like it might be good with rum.

After spending this last Halloween weekend in New Orleans, the mere thought of any kind of fruity drinks makes me a bit sick to my stomach. I drank so much hurricane mix on Saturday night that on Sunday morning, for a moment, I thought I was coughing up blood. Out of my eyes.

And anyway, Pepsi is nasty disgusting stuff. Can't really see how adding cinnamon can improve it.

I hate being a Pepsi fan and not wanting to drink any form of soda.

Info here

Ok, after finding out what is in it(I didn't even look when I bought or drank my first glass ) The fruityness is coming from the cinnamon and pepsi combining, then you get a strong ginger aftertaste. I might take back my comment about not buying anymore, it's kinda growing on me.

I had one a week ago. It was neither good or bad, just wierd. I wouldn't suggest mixing it with rum. Captain didnt go well with it, and neither did silver rum.

Took a lot of searching to find it, found at two stores tonight, Albertsons, and Longs Drugs.

It was in Sunday's paper as being .89 at Ralphs, but the manager there looked at me like I was a space alien when I asked about it.

My dad works at one of the local chains here, and the Pepsi distributor said it should be all over town Wednesday.

Bought two 2 liters tonight, but I OD'ed on Coca Cola this afternoon, so haven't opened them yet.

I'm a huge Coke fan, but do drink a lot of Pepsi because it's free to me at work.

I LOVE new stuff.

Hope this is better than other recent new drinks though.

7up Plus Bleah.
Mountain Dew Pitch Black. Bleah.
Diet Coke With Lime. Bleah.

The only recent new soda I like is Sprite Remix BerryClear (and it's been out awhile)...

Holiday Spice sounds like a stripper name.

I was thinking it's a really lousy addition to a washed-up pop band.

Screw them. I hate when they release a flavor only for a limited time. What if I love it? What do I do then? I still crave Pepsi Blue.

If it's that good, then it will come back as a permanent offering, like Mountain Dew Live Wire, which is awesome.

If it sucks, it will be yanked, like Mountain Dew Nasty Grape Drink.
