28oz gatorade is news to me..nothing about that on our end and wouldnt make sense since PBC KILLED with it in 32oz. The papa johns thing was confirmed in the news.

Period One of next year(January-ish) Jugs of Lipton Strawberry Melon, Raspberry Tea, Tea with lemonade(im sure we got this already) and an option white tea/pink lemonade that may only hit some markets me thinks. -Rockstar permanent additions..both 16oz..one is a coconut variety(no details) and the other is called Xdurance(no details).

P2 Diet Supernova relaunch in cans..2 liters and 20oz.. OODs here we come!

p3 Amp Relaunch(new cans look SHARP!) ,Muscle milk cookies n cream, Starbucks refreshers(12oz in straw lemon, orange melon, rasp pom), starbucks doubleshot energy white chocolate

p4 Pepsi next cans and 20oz expect it to be permanent.. and it will be a mid calorie cola..more to come.

p5 Lipton pureleaf is making a big change. Glass bottles going to 18.5oz carafe style PET bottles and 6pks. Lipton Natural 64oz Pet bottles coming out in reg and diet.

p6 Sierra mist LTO flavor Strawberry kiwi in regular and diet!(sounds good!)

p7 Starbucks frap LTO cookies n cream flavor, Lipton summer flavors .5 liter 12pk 100 cal bottles, -Dew LTO to tie in with new batman in 16oz cans 12pk 2l, 1lt, and 20oz..tbd.

nothing scheduled for p8 and p9

p10 cran mist is back and xfactor packaging and LTO flavor tbd. Nothing scheduled for the rest of the year.

A lot of this stuff beyond period 6 I know will change and be cleared up as time goes on. Im also sure another dew flavor or 8 will come out haha.

More diet colas? Lame.

I miss the flavored colas! I wish Pepsi would bring back Twist, Blue or Vanilla for a LTO (or longer!)

Stumbled upon two new Lifewater varieties today, both with 10% coconut water. One is unflavored, the other is Mango Mandarin. Not sure if this is newsworthy or not, but this is the first I've seen of them.

Those coconut water lifewaters came out a couple of months ago. Tried two of the flavors and was very suprised by how good they were considering I tried coconut water plain and was not too impressed by it..what did you think fusion?

I miss the flavored colas! I wish Pepsi would bring back Twist, Blue or Vanilla for a LTO (or longer!)It's weird that they make diet pepsi lime and diet vanilla pepsi, and not regular vanilla pepsi and regular pepsi lime anymore.

I'd also like to see pepsi twist make a come back. Slice soda needs to make a come back, too, I loved the orange one.

I haven't tried it yet, actually.

There is a third one that I didn't see.. here it is on Walton Beverages (Pepsi bottler in WA) website:

Thanks for the info Lordmadone. I hope your predictions come true. Looking forward to Starbucks Frappuccino Cookies N Cream, the other Starbucks extensions, Rockstar Coconut, and Sierra Mist Kiwi Strawberry. Thanks to all the new products/MD extensions that came out this year, I ended up buying more Pepsi products than Coke products this year.

Is there any word on what the LTO Batman flavor will be or is it going to be just a specialty packaging like we've seen with the Star Wars Brisk?

Two more new Rockstar flavors... Peach Tea and another one called "Relax".

Sorry to hear that - you were a great source of information to the board. Hopefully you'll keep coming here and joining in on our conversations.

On a related note, I did see tags for the Sierra Mist Strawberry Kiwi in Food Lion's new item tags yesterday.

Thank you for the kind words. Hopefully might be joining the red team in the near future if things go right.

Bought a 12 pack of Dark Berry yesterday. Can't wait to try it. Does it taste similar to Voltage or Pitch Black?

It's Pepsi Blue's blue raspberry flavoring mixed with Mountain Dew. Quite delicious.

Dark Berry is out here in Delaware as well. Found it in 2Ls.

Tried the new flavor..very unimpressed. Tastes so much like voltage. Pepsi is starting to get desperate for sales it seems..although the marketing for dew is just as good as ever..

It does taste similar to Voltage, but not exactly the same. And the flavor is very mild when compared to Voltage.

To me, it tasted like a weak Pitch Black. In any case, I wasn't impressed.

Two new Lipton natural flavors (found them in Target) - Strawberry Dragonfruit and Peach Honey. If you text HONEY or DRAGON to 827438, you will get a BOGO mobile coupon. And they're $1 this week.

Trying Pepsi Next Paradise Mango and Cherry Vanilla today. Drinking the first one now and man, it's odd. But pretty good, I guess.

I tried Paradise Mango, and I found it to be awful. Mango and Cola are two flavors that just don't mix.

Haven't tried Cherry Vanilla yet, but I'm sure it will be quite similar two the varieties they've offered in the past.

I'm trying Mountain Dew Dark Berry now, and I'm not really tasting anything new here. It's a blander version of Voltage or Pitch Black. Interesting color at least. But I won't be buying it again.

Cherry Vanilla Pepsi next was actually pretty good..I was impressed..no aftertaste and smooth initial taste.

After being in Spain for two months, I returned home to CA a couple of weeks ago. I am now looking for these limited edition flavors that came out while I was gone. I finally found Cookies & Cream Frappucino at a Target - it was sale for $4.99 for a 4-pack so I bought the last 4-pack of the C&C flavor, haven't tried it yet though. I can't find Mtn. Dew Dark Berry anywhere in cans (I see the regular Mtn. Dew w/ the Dark Night packaging) so I guess it must of sold really quickly while I was gone. I did find three 2-liter bottles left at a Vons for $1 so I bought one (although 2-liter isn't my favorite format) though I haven't tasted it yet.

I can't find Sierra Mist Kiwi Strawberry anyway. So far I have checked half a dozen supermarkets (Vons, Albertsons, Food 4 Less, Ralphs, Spencers (IGA)) plus two Targets and a CVS. I will check more stores and Wal-Mart. Maybe I should check a supermarket that moves product slower, but then again they probably wouldn't have stocked it in the first place. I didn't see SM Kiwi Strawberry before I left in June nor now. Either it sold really, really well and fast, or they barely made any. I will also check c-stores for the 20 oz bottles.

Pepsi Next Paradise Mango and Cherry Vanilla are really easy to find and are at every supermarket in my area. I bought a 12 pack of the Paradise Mango (I really wish they sold new/trial/limited edition flavors in smaller packs like 6 or 4 packs) and tried it - weird but not but bad, but I probably wouldn't buy it again except for maybe a 20 oz single. I'm waiting until I'm down to four cans before I buy a 12 pack of the Cherry Vanilla flavor as 24 cans of Pepsi Next is too much to keep in my house at one time.

Been drinking quite a bit of Dark Berry Dew. It tastes just like Revolution.
I love Dark Berry, cos i loved Revolution and was so disappointed when it didn't win.

Also just drunk Pepsi Blue for only the second time. First time was back in 2004 when my bro managed to get a bottle here in the UK and i had a taste.
I was able to buy a few cans of Pepsi Blue off ebay as it is still sold in Indonesia. It was mad expensive with shipping, but worth it.

Any idea on potential 2013 pepsi releases? I quite like Pepsi Next (brought some back from ND) and I'm looking forward to what I can get next year.
