In Mexico Pepsi is now on sale in a blue bottle, I don't know if this is seasonal or permanent, but it's available in all the sizes:

What do ya think?...

I'm not a big fan of colored bottles. I would rather have clear bottles.

In Europe, Pepsi Light is in a translucent metallic gray-colored plastic bottle.

In Mexico, Pepsi Light also had a metallic gray plastic bottle, but not translucent, but it was just for limited time.

Well, in the pic the blue bottle is not noticeable at all until you see blue under the cap... IMO blue bottles are good for water, not for cola.

Did the blue bottles start the same time as the promotion?

Nop, when the blue bottles appeared the caps were blue as common, this is a promo only in Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche that consists in marked caps that you can change for Pepsi products, the yellow caps worths fifty mexican cents and the silver caps two pesos... Here in Ags. there's another promo that are yellow caps that you can change for Pepsi porcelain dishes...

Actually I don't know if this blue colored bottles are only for a limited time or permanent, in one side I think is limited because Pepsi Light did the same with the silver colored bottle and now it returned to the common bottle, but in the other side, this blue bottle is in all the sizes of Pepsi: 1.5 liter, 2 liter and 600 ml, but... bah, anyway...

Here's a pic of the blue bottle of Pepsi (12 oz.), to appreciate better the blue color of the bottle I scanned it empty...

I'm sure now that this bottle is seasonal, because in the ads they mention this phrase: "Discover the most refreshing color of this season"

I'm old school. LOL
I like the color of any cola flavor to be carmel brown/black. I want just about all the pop bottles to be clear. I enjoy seeing the pop as I drink it.

Except for Mountain Dew, the deep yellow bottle are part of the thrill of drinking it. It is so easy to grab a DW at a convience store, the color grabs my attention.

Is it me? In my thinking very few "razal dazzle" colors,bottle shapes ect. ever catch on. I will say Mountain Dew Pitch Black II has an excellent color and label design.
