    Default Sprite Blast

    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.



    Found the pic on Instagram.

    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.
