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.
