International sighting: Sprite Remix
Posted: 17:27 Mon 21-04-2003. Price: $1.25. Location: 7-11, Maryland, USA.
"Claudia Larin" reports: I found this while I was getting gas over the weekend. Nice fresh taste, [like] someone mixed fruit punch and Sprite. They're going to start a full ad campaign tomorrow, for
the official release. But I found out that they
release it early in some cities like NY, Washington
DC and LA. Nothing quite so exciting here in the UK, though apparently we are getting a Mango version of Lipton Ice Tea (previously only available in Lemon and Peach). Here's hoping they go back to the Lipton's original TV ad campaign (from about 10 years ago?), which showed lots of trendy, sporty people drinking a clear yellow liquid without knowing what it was. Then, when the voiceover told them, "The amazing thing is, it's made from - tea!", you (the viewer) could shout out "wee!" at that point instead. "What, wee?", the drinkers would gasp, astonished. "Yes, wee!", you'd yell - and those long summer evenings would just fly by.

Comment: Just heard the following drinks are coming (to the UK and US, at least): Mountain Dew LiveWire - Orange flavoured Mountain Dew. Also, in addition to Tropical Sprite Remix, there is Sprite Ice -- the original sprite flavour with mint flavouring added. Possibly the worst idea since caffeine-free Coke. ;)

Comment: I have in my hand (and my stomach) mango flavoured Lipton Iced Tea.
Very agreeable it is too. It's been in my local (village just North of Bristol) shop for the past couple of weeks, but I've always chosen Peach instead. Thankfully my curiosity got the better of me. I paid 69p for the privilege.

Comment: Packaging Digest has the full lowdown on mint-flavoured "Sprite Ice":
http://www.packagingdigest.com/News/0503news.html . Apparently, "Canadians will be the first in North America to try Sprite Ice. Set for a late-April, '03 launch across that country, the new carbonated beverage will also be available in Belgium." What's more, "Coca-Cola Ltd. believes mint is emerging as the flavor of the moment, breaking from its traditional role in chewing gum, candies, chocolates and other confection-related products. From bar drinks such as mojitos and juleps to salsas, mint is moving into food and drink menus everywhere."
