I just found some in 20oz and tried one, it was pretty good, tasted sorta like Jazz except not diet. I was really surprised to see it this early, found it at the Cumberland Farms cs!!:)

so, for the people who tried it... does it taste like pepsi blue?

04-18-2007, 10:44 AM
From what I can remember it doesnt taste like Pepsi Blue, more like the Strawberry and Creme Jazz except without the diet taste.

Pepsi made a flash page for it :

Tried it today-something I might drink every once in a while but not everyday. It tastes like skittles and Pepsi!

Gee sometimes I wonder just what the Pepsi and Coke flavor designers are smoking. LOL

I swear if they got a dozen of us board mates together in
a flavor lab;we could design a pleasing (commercial "sell-able")
soda pop for the mass market. :)

I found 12 packs, 2 liters, and 20 oz bottles of this today at woodmans. I got a 12 pack.

04-24-2007, 08:39 PM
I checked both Atlanta's market and Columbus' market today, nothing.

04-24-2007, 11:04 PM
VONs in the SoCal. area has them in 12 packs, 20 oz and 2ltr. According to Pepsi, Stater Bros is next.

Hello! I am new to this bulletin board but as an avid fan of different pops, I am glad that this is here. I am drinking a 20oz of Summer Mix right now that I found at a local CVS here in the metro Detroit area. Maybe I'm crazy or my taste buds are off, but the first thing it reminded me of was Pepsi Holiday Spice from a few years ago, any concurrence?

04-29-2007, 10:11 PM
I am trying this now, I kinda actually like it, its tasty.
Also first time I have had the new 20z pepsi bottle with the pepsi globe on it!

I Love It!!!!!!

I found it yesterday. I was so pumped. I thought it tasted a bit like pepsi blue. It's a pretty good summer soda. But sadly, I don't think it'll last. Much like the other pepsi varieties that I loved i.e pepsi blue and crystal pepsi.

05-03-2007, 05:13 PM
Adding to the collection of photos, here's one I shot:


I really wanted to like Pepsi Summer Mix. The concept seemed pretty unique. But it was too sweet of a drink (http://forums.tannerworld.com/showthread.php?t=9215) for me... not enough "tropical" flavor, whatever that is supposed to be. I would agree with the folks who thought that there was some overtones of Pepsi Blue.

05-03-2007, 08:33 PM
It was sweet, but then again, so is Pepsi. I get the lifesavers comparison, maybe a hint of Blue.. but certainly not tropical.

05-03-2007, 09:33 PM
Yeah this isn't Tropical at all but it's like a Pepsi Blue Jr. and I freaking love it. Bring back the Blue!

05-03-2007, 11:41 PM
found it here in Diet 2 liter bottle...WHAT was Pepsi thinking? Tastes like medicine.

I just found the 12 packs of this yesterday. It hasn't hit wide here yet. I also found the 2 liter just this morning. The pepsi stocker said that the 20oz won't show up until tomorrow. I haven't tried it yet.

Did someone say there is going to be a Diet version of this? Really?

I hope they release it soon in Mexico, I saw the 20 oz. bottle at Flickr and it looks great...

theres a diet version? i want a pic :'(

05-04-2007, 09:28 PM
I really enjoy the Pepsi Summer Mix it has a different flavor to it that is unlike anything else!! If only they could do that in Mountain Dew then I would really enjoy it. The berry infused Vault energy soda is awesome as well!!

05-05-2007, 11:09 PM
I finally found this today at my local Cub Foods here. And I have to say I love it! I'm usually not one to love a soda right away sometimes it takes me at least two cans or bottles before I go ga-ga over it. Iv'e already had two cans since Iv'e been home. My boyfriend had one can and said it's ok. (He's a Coke fan so we will excuse him.Lol) I think it has a pineapple/mango or papaya taste of some sort. I swear I taste cherry but I know that's not a tropical fruit so it can't be in there. It does taste like Pepsi too. I guess a Pepsi/pineapple taste. I hope it sticks around. I like it. Kudos to Pepsi. I'm drinking one now. Dang I like these. Lol.

05-05-2007, 11:19 PM
Oh, I forgot to mention I don't think it tastes like Pepsi Blue. I hated Pepsi Blue and would never drink it again.This tastes like something else I have had before but can't put my finger on it. My boyfriend says it almost tastes like Pepsi Holiday Spice without the ginger or whatever. Maybe he's right. I'm not sure.I did love Holiday Spice. Wish they'd bring that one back.

05-06-2007, 11:30 AM
I had a 12 oz. can this morning and, like SplashofDew, I loved it right away. I think it's actually less sweet than the Cherry Pepsi and the flavors seem to blend better. It does, also, remind me of the "berry" flavored Vault, only mixed with a cola instead. I think they really outdid themselves on this one! I just wish it would last!

05-06-2007, 11:33 AM
Also, I forgot to mention one thing. I noticed on the can that it had the caffeine content of 38 mg listed. Is this a new thing for Pepsi - listing the caffeine content? I know Coke was supposedly going to start listing that on all their products, but I hadn't heard anything about Pepsi.

05-06-2007, 04:25 PM
I think it has a bubble gum flavor too it. If you really think about it, it tastes like pepsi with a slight bubble gum flavor added. I actually think it's pretty good.

05-07-2007, 03:39 AM
tastes like Pepsi with SKITTLES to me. Hands down.

05-07-2007, 06:34 PM
One word. Yum. :D

05-07-2007, 09:33 PM
I found one at the local K-Mart, the taste immediately reminded me of a flavor I recognized but couldn't quite put my finger on it. So instead I put my tongue on it and now I got it.

It tastes exactly like mixing a handful of different flavors of the Bottle Cap candies they sell during Halloween.

Now that I've got that figured out, i can quite drinking it...just like the candies, I only need 1 or two packets and I'm good for another year.

05-08-2007, 12:44 AM

LOL. BTW-they sell them more than just at Halloween. They sell them by the box at Walmart and other places. I get them fairly often.

05-08-2007, 01:03 PM
This kinda taste like Coca-Cola Blak to me.

05-08-2007, 01:05 PM
And oh, I probably won't buy this again.

05-08-2007, 01:30 PM
This kinda taste like Coca-Cola Blak to me.

Really? I think I am going to call shnanagans on that.

Though, after trying it myself, I will say it does taste like Pepsi Blue, or Pepsi Skittles, like some have suggested.

it somewhat resembles pepsi blue. wheres my diet pic?

05-09-2007, 02:21 AM
I tried Summer Mix the other day and I thought it was pretty good. The thing was, I knew I had tasted that flavor in something before and I just couldn't figure out what it was. Then, I had Summer Mix again tonight and I finally figured out what it tasted like: Capri Sun's Surfer Cooler (and Pepsi, obviously!). Since that is my favorite Capri Sun flavor, it made Summer Mix even better than it already was!

05-10-2007, 06:13 AM
i got a 2 liter tonight threw it in the freezer for a bit, once it got all slushy i took it out for a taste and all i could think was coconut pepsi. which i basically liked other than i usually prefer to drink high octane unleaded. (lotsa caffine no calorie):D

I found 20 oz. bottles of Summer Mix at the local Wal-Mart yesterday, so I bought one. Whoever said that this stuff tastes like Jazz was right, except that Summer Mix doesn't have the artificial aftertaste that Jazz does. Kind of like a fruit punch flavor mixed with Pepsi. Not that bad at all, really. I don't really think it tastes like Blue though. Blue had a one of a kind taste, and I still miss it! I'll probably get another bottle or two of this over the summer, why not? The Doomite Is Out! :eek:

05-12-2007, 04:11 AM
I think it is good the flavor is between jazz and Pepsi blue. Personally I think it is best really cold.

05-23-2007, 08:46 AM
I love the way everyone is saying the same thing... "It tastes like something I have tasted before but I can't quite figure it out." That's the same thing that I thought when I had it over the weekend. I wonder where they got the formula.

05-23-2007, 04:31 PM
I taste Sprite's Aruba Jam Remix flavor mixed with Pepsi. But, hey, that's just me!

05-23-2007, 06:28 PM
Tried it a few weeks ago and like it pretty well. Will buy it again ... but then I'm a flavor wh*re.

06-28-2007, 04:01 PM
I see the last guy has a Josta avatar... which leads to my question. Does anyone think this Pepsi Summer Mix tastes a little bit like Josta? I used to love Josta and as soon as I has some of this Summer Mix, it brought back those memories.

06-28-2007, 05:11 PM
"It tastes like something I have tasted before but I can't quite figure it out."

tastes like Tropi-Cola....old beverage. Known in the puerto rican community...

08-17-2007, 08:10 PM
Anyone still have this available in their area? It was no longer in my area by June 16th. Pretty odd releasing and ceasing production of a summer themed cola before summer even begins.

08-18-2007, 09:44 AM
Yes, Buffalo Rock has tons here.
