As far as I know, it hasn't been released yet. The bottle shape is very similar to the grip-type bottle that was used by All-Sport when Pepsi owned it.

It's just going to be out this summer, for the new Matrix movies.

I'd post a picture, but most of the ones I have seen are really small and unscannable.

On a side note, if you go to CCE's website (http://ir.cokecce.com/medialist.cfm) and look at the PDF presentation for April 2, 2003, you can see pictures of the new Diet Coke w/ Lemon graphics (page 8) and Sprite Remix (page 14), including a fridge pack picture of Remix.

Is this the Poweraid in the metal type bottle or a different poweraid package?

Just saw it, AWESOME BOTTLE!!! All Powerade flavors should be put in this new package.

We started shipping it in Maryland the other day. I bought a few bottles. I agree, it does look pretty awesome. The taste leaves a bit to be desired, though it is ok. The black cherry is the strongest of the three flavors (black cherry, lime, anise).

Here's a pic:

Anise Powerade?

Judging from all other Powerade flavors I've tried, that has to be one of the vilest things I've heard about in a while.

No, Matrix has all three flavors in it. There aren't three separate flavors/SKUs. Sorry for the confusion.

I was taken aback when I saw it had anise flavor in it, but you can't even taste it.

Phew, that sounds a little better then. If I see a bottle I'll give it a try.

It is a cool looking bottle.
