When I go to work I always pass in front of the PBG warehouse, and they hang some vinyl canvas where they announce new Pepsi products, and Pepsi Clear was one of them. Also when I stopped to a grocery store, there were already advertisements announcing Pepsi Clear... I saw the bottle and it's weird, like a traslucent WHITE bottle, and it's obviously a limited edition because the slogan says: "It's Pepsi but transparent, discover it before it disappears"...

Well... to be honest, I don't know for sure if this release will be nationwide in Mexico, but if where you go the Pepsi distributor is a PBG bottler you'll probably find it... I think that the most probable point of sale are grocery stores or like we say: "Abarrotes", you'll see easily what grocery store sells Pepsi Clear, if you see a poster of Pepsi Clear in the grocery store or "abarrotes"... it's surely on sale there...

I tried PEPSI CLEAR today... the cola taste is too artificial, tastes like the Pepsi Blue from here...

I wonder how this compares to old Crystal Pepsi. Does this Mexican Clear stuff have caffeine in it? Crystal Pepsi didn't. The original Crystal Pepsi I liked a lot (but not the lemon-added reformulation)

I don't know if Pepsi Clear has caffeine or not... they don't mention it on the ingredients list...

yeh it is pretty good
great thing about it that it doesnt have that normal pepsi taste which is good and they used sugar not those nastey sweetners.

I wish that Pepsi Mexico would launch it after all that crazy combinations and weird extensions they have been releasing (Manzanita Sol apple-tamarind, Mirinda orange-mango, Mirinda Narangotica Orange-grape, Pepsi twist, Pepsi Clear, Pepsi Fire, Pepsi Blue, 7UP Ice) all that weird line extensions sucked with the exception of Mirinda orange-grape, I hope that Pepsi would release Samba also here.

I am drinking some right now and I LOVE it. My cousin was living in AU for 9 months and he brought me a 1.5 litre bottle. Very fruity and refreshing. Tastes like when you were a kid and you would mix half a glass of pop with some juice. My Pepsi rep wants to try it tommorrow
