To replace the DC'd flavors. They were always intended to be "limited edition"...

My Pepsi contact said Jazz would be gone by year's end and he wasn't aware of any caramel Jazz. So, I guess we'll see.

NO guys...as a Pepsi employee who deals with new products all year round I can tell you that Jazz is NOT going away and there IS a new flavor coming in early 2007.

The store manager could have been implying that his chain will not carry the product in their stores any longer - which is alot different than the manufacturer discontinuing it.

Wonkapete - your Pepsi contact doesn't seem to be up to speed on this stuff...is he a field based employee? I only ask because they don't get a lot of this info until its much closer to happening...

Yes, he is a field based employee. He said Pepsi will be introducing numerous new products in 2007 but Jazz wouldn't be on the list. Maybe he didn't get the memo yet... or just forgot. I don't know. Thanks for the info. though!

I don't want to hate on anybody, but I propose that we have a "Discontinued" board so that Bevboard newbies don't keep coming in and creating new logins just to specifically ask if we know if something is being discontinued. Thoughts?

I agree, also it depends on your market. Here we only have Jazz in 12packs, they released 20oz and 2liters for al imited time but the 12 packs are staying around. They have been selling just as well as Dt. Cherry and Dt. Vanilla Pepsi.

Just my 2 cents worth!
