I wery rarely drink Soda, I usually stick to water. However when a new flavor come out I will sometimes give it a try. I finally bought a Pepsi Holiday Spice and was so surprised, it tastes exactly like Coca Cola with the faintest cherry syrup aftertaste. I mean it is so damn close to the taste of Coca Cola, especially the tast of coke from when I was a kid in the 70's. I have had every flavor of Coca Cola and Pepsi since 1977. I distinctly remember Pepsi Light. I guess this is a new era in Cola. Maybe for New Years Coca Cola will give us a new Pepsi flavored Coca Cola.

Coke already gave us Pepsi flavored Coca-Cola about 20 years ago. It was called New Coke. tongue.gif

Pepsi just took their soda and made it taste good (a la Coke) and then threw some cinnamon in it. The cinnamon ruins the drink. They should have just called it Pepsi Our Attempt At Making Our Crap Drink Taste Like Coke! OMG that would be a best seller!

It is Pepsi + Flavour = Coca-Cola + Nasty Cinnamon (so...Pepsi+Flavour+Nasty Cinnamon)= Holiday spice

I have to agree w/DC Enthusiast. The first part of the 20 oz. bottle to me tasted like nasty cinnamon, the last half just tasted like Coke, not like Pepsi.

I tried the Pepsi Holiday Spice a few days ago....

The drink mostly tasted of cola with a *slight*
hint of cinnamon(?). You really had to work to
tell if it was all that different than regular
Pepsi.

Now, if you want a cola with lots of cinnamon flavor, anyone tried Hansen's Natural Cola (do they still make it?)

Pepsi.Actually, I agree with all the Coca Cola comparisons: Coke's recipe includes cinnamon and other spices, and Holiday Spice is a similar mix, albeit in a more pungent manner. There is clear cinnamon flavor, with also a slight nutmeg bite on the finish.

Might blend well with some sort of alcohol as a holiday mixed drink, but not very refreshing as a soda ;)

I didn't think it was that bad and I am glad they are at least trying to do something different. I had fun with it.

My daugther's cousin lives up in Minnesota and she told her that Holiday Spice tasted a lot like a "Flat Coke." Not sure if this what PEP was hoping for when they concoted the product.

I've had 2 liters, 20ozs and cans. 20oz simply taste different and close to Coke but a bit different. 2-liters and cans taste like Pepsi with an array of spices. I really like both flavors much more than Coke.

aack dont diss pepsi! i like PHS but really the only reason i bought it was just to try it out, and see what it tastes like. but yes, i agree it tastes like coke with a tad bit of cinnamon. i could barely taste the cinnamon, to tell the truth, so i think that maybe it was a little bit over-hyped. scratch that, a lot bit over-hyped. give me a mountain dew any day.

...and Coke doesn't copy Pepsi? Hrmph musta been my mistake when I drank the Diet Lemon Coke that tasted like it used lemon dish soap as flavoring.
