    Default Citrus Blast

    I don't know if this is a test market soda or what, but I can't find any info online about it anywhere so I thought I'd bring it here.

    I was at Stater Bros. here in Southern California, and this week they were advertising selected Pepsi 12-packs on sale. Among the sodas available is a new one called Citrus Blast. I decided to pick up a 12-pack and try it out.

    Basically it's Pepsi's version of Squirt. The 4th ingredient is concentrated grapefruit juice, and the flavor isn't really much different than that of Squirt. It doesn't quite have the bite of Squirt, but the taste is sharper than that of Mountain Dew White Out, which I thought was incredibly bland. I doubt I'll be buying it again, but it's not too bad.

    Anyone else try it?

    I did a little research on this... the story behind who owns the trademark alone is interesting. Also found full nutritional facts and ingredients (diet version uses aspartame and Ace-K, 10 calories).

    20oz bottles and 12 pack cans of Citrus Blast and Diet Citrus Blast were found today in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania. I did not buy any.
