    According to the August 29 Beverage Digest (I use the online headlines because there is no way in hell I would pay $650 for 22 issues):

    In this issue:

    Private Label Grows, Brands Struggle. Cott Executive Cites 'Commitment From Retailers.' Beyond Beverages.

    Water War: Coke Share Way Up on Dannon. Nestlé Way Down; Attack Ahead? Dannon and PL Close in Price.

    Diet CSDs Outpace Regulars. Coke Plans Diet Coke with Lime Next Year. More New Products – Including Mid-Calorie – Ahead. Diet Coke Bigger Than Coke Classic Someday?

    Vanilla Coke Scores Highest on Trial, Mt. Dew Code Red Highest on Repeat.

    Pro Sports Pouring Rights: Pepsi Gains In Recent Moves. Coke Leads Overall.

    Plus, as in every issue: Territory Changes/Deals, People and Briefs.

    I sense a success rate of Diet Coke w/Lemon. I doubt it will go over well.

    The product was also discussed at a recent CCE meeting (I mentioned it on the "something old" thread).

    It's a good idea, but I'm kind of skeptical about how the formula will turn out. The original formulation of Diet Coke with Lemon was dreadful but the new formula they introduced a few months ago is not too shabby. Diet Pepsi Twist is still better though.

    I'm suprised they still never added a Lemon Coke to there line-up yet.

    They probably would've if Pepsi Twist had been a bigger success.

    Supposed launch for this is Spring 03. Also look for a new Sprite Remix flavor, but no word on what that flavor is (hopefully it's cherry!).
