View Full Version : 79cent Sierra Mist Free 20 oz

i was at a Hess Gas sation gettin gas and decided to get something to drink. And i noticed all 20 Oz Sierra Mist Frees were 79 cents. So I bought a bunch. Maybe its like this everywhere but i havent seen it and i thought that was a pretty good deal. It acctually says Suggested retail price 79cents on the bottle. Another thing was that all pepsi 20oz products were 99cents other then Sierra Mist Free.

Dew has been MSRP 99c here for months now to combat the VAULT expansion. Mist is 99c in most stores as well though we havent seen a drop to 79c yet- though it wouldnt surprise me with how much money they continiously pump into that brand and with the Sprite re-vamp.

Not even if Woodman's gave Sierra Mist 20oz both regular and free out for nothing, I would not take any. IMO I will not drink D List beverages if I can avoid them. LOL

D list MR Z? I would probably have it on my C list. You should post your lists of your rankings of drinks for us all to see. That would be cool to see.

Ok I'll put Sierra Mist on my C-List but on probation.LOL

Zabe, don't give in! You're the true anti-Sierra Mist zealot of this board!

And I'm your lowly squire apprentice.

yeh, i tried one of the regular, because i never had one before and it was only 50 cents, so as i was walking out of the store, i opened it and took a sip, spit it out, threw the bottle in the trash bin, and turned around and walked in and grabbed a 50 cent vault to wash the unplesantness out of my mouth...

Well to be honest it's a Sprite clone although not as good, but its drinkable. I'm anti Sierra Mist because i'd rather have lemon lime Slice or even Storm, but I don't understand how it's so terrible. I just can't taste enough difference to justify hating Sierra Mist so much. I have no problem telling differences between other drinks, but between Sprite and Sierra Mist I give the edge to Sprite although I find Sierra Mist isn't that much worse.

i cant stomach diet sprite, but i find sierra mist free to be pretty tasty, ill go either way on the non diet versions.

Ok. Old Formula 7up and Sprite drinkers love these beverages because they have some "back bone". Speaking for myself, they have strong lemon lime flavor notes. I can taste a strong tasting soda pop that has it's sweetness balanced with a strong start and strong finish.

Sierra Mist has IMO a week mouth feel. The lemon lime flavor reminds me of when my Great Aunt used to give me a wet slimy kiss on the cheek. YECK!!!
It has a light taste that seems more like a souped up lemon lime sparkling water than a lemon lime sweet soda pop.

For us old school OS 7up and Sprite drinkers, drinking S.M. is not the least bit what we recall what a lemon lime soda pop should taste like. :(

I hate Sprite and Sierra Mist. Just awful, IMO.
