New Sprite LTO exclusive to 7-11.

Supposed to be like an intense version of Sprite. Pepsi did a similar thing in Japan with a mini can of Pepsi. I think it was discussed here, somewhere.

I tried it...not bad. Pretty lemony.

I just finished one. Very lemony. more sour than sweet. for me, it really hit the spot. i found it inside the glass door of a 7-ll, inside the suction cup holders that cling on the inside of the glass.

^Same place I saw it yesterday also. I haven't tried it yet but will soon enough. I was trying to find the free Big Gulp coupon on the 7-11 app but couldn't, got frustrated and went to AM/PM to get a 99 cent MM Strawberry Lemonade Freeze. Apparently the 7-11 app crashed from so many people downloading/trying to use it the day after the free Slurpee Day. 7-11 had to postpone their 7 days of deals until they fix their app.

Does the Sprite Blast only come in the tiny can size? This is the complete opposite of the 19 oz Lebron James Sprite Remix size.

Yeah, Sprite Blast is only 7.5oz single cans. It's meant to imitate what has been done in Japan with small cans and intense flavors.

The store I found it at, the suction cup was on the outside of the door. Didn't make any sense to me. Plenty of room on the inside for it. I think more people would try it if it was already cold.

I just tried a can. Definitely more sour than sweet. And more syrupy than carbonated.

I tried the Sprite Blast yesterday. It was very good and has a sour kick. It tastes a lot like the Fanta Limon they have in Spain (and other European countries). It also tastes a bit like the S. Pelligrino Lemon soda. I'd like to see this one become a permanent edition.

I had a can when it first came out. One sip was all I could handle. I thought my head was going to implode as my face sucked into a little ball caused by the extreme sour flavor. Yuk!

It's completely unnecessary. Just come out with a cherry Sprite already. Damn even.

After the success of the Sprite Remixes, you would think they would have done cherry. But everything was quiet until the Freestyle came along.

Six Mix is cherry-orange, I guess that's as close as we are getting. I think we will see more of it next year. Cranberry will be back in late September, if you liked that.

I loved the Cranberry Sprite. Glad to here its coming back. On another note Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale is already back in stores where I live (but only in 2 liter bottles).

We have Canada Dry cranberry 2 liters year-round around here (regular and diet). And 20oz regular showed up a few months ago. I went northwest of where I live and found it in 12 pack cans from a different bottler.

And in the NE where Coke still has Canada Dry, cranberry was also seen year round. Polar Beverages carries Seagram's up that way, and they produce raspberry year round, but only in 2 liters. We are getting raspberry back this year in early October. Don't think it will be national, though.

Canada dry here is under pepsi. Thus, there are little to no flavor extensions. I think a cherry variant is all there is. I want to try peach. Oh well.
