    Something new came into my store from Pepsi a day or two ago. Manzanita Sol, an apple flavored soda. It's supposed to be aimed at the hispanic market. I haven't tried it yet, because I haven't seen a 20 oz. size yet. I've only seen it in 12-packs. I almost never drink sodas anymore, so I really don't want to drink 12 of these, especially if they aren't that good. Fanta Apple was always really good, but I don't know how good this new stuff will be.

    Shatter, Manzanita Sol is from here, from Mexico, and I can say that the taste is good, but Manzana Lift from Coca-Cola is MUCH BETTER!, also here in Mex. there's two extensions of Manzanita Sol brand: Green Apple (this one tastes damn good!) and Exotica -Tamarindo-Apple- (I don't recommend this one), for more info and pics of those products visit the FRAWG topic...

    It's really good. You can get it at most Mexi-Marts.

    I wouldn't drink anything with Tamarind in it. I tried it years ago, and i'll never drink it again. Not my kind of flavor.

    Here's an ad of the apple-tamarindo flavor of Manzanita Sol:

    I found this in 20 oz. bottles at one of my college's on-campus convenience stores (which only sells Pepsi products due to the whole "pouring rights" thing). This is the first apple soda I've tried, so I can't say how it measures up to others, but it's pretty good. Tastes like lightly carbonated apple cider, although it could stand to be a bit less sweet.

    This is the first time I've seen a Hispanic-themed product from the Big Three sold in my area (aside from the major Fanta flavors), but it makes sense because we have quite a large Latino(a) population.

    One question guys, Pepsi haven't had in U.S. an apple soda before Manzanita Sol and the new Frawg?

    in the 1980's we had Apple Slice for a few years. Then in the late 80's early 90's we had Mirinda Apple too. I only saw that in major Hispanic outlets here. Nowadays you can find apple sodas from Mexico at most stores. Still haven't seen the local version of Manzanita Sol here.

    In Mexico, before Pepsi bought Manzanita Sol (because in the past it was an independent brand, and I think that Coke used to distributed it, but I'm not so sure) we used to have Mirinda Apple, and It was damn good, it tasted like apple chewing gum.
