Click pic to view comments International sighting: Sprite Ice
Posted: 18:15 Wed 14-05-2003. Price: $1.70. Location: Melbourne, Australia. Sub-flavours: Sprite. Nutritional unusualness: It has a very faint mint aftertaste.
"Adrian Furby" reports: Sprite Ice - it looks a little bit like diluted blue Listerine, and it tastes mostly like Sprite. However, about 3 minutes after your last mouthful, there suddenly appears a faint aftertaste of mint. It's really not very good. According to the ever-reliable Packaging News, Coke were supposed to be testing their mint-flavoured lemonade in Canada and Belgium (in a "clear-blue, 591-mL polyethylene terephthalate bottle"), but these new products always end up in Australia no matter where they start off. Packaging News also has the - perhaps predictable? - headline New Coke, Pepsi Soft Drinks Products See Sales go Flat after Strong Debut, with both Vanilla Coke and Mountain Dew Code Red failing to prevent the overall long-term decline in soft-drink consumption as buyers move from carbonates to "healthier" alternatives like bottled water.

Comment: I can not talk for Belgium, but here in Canada Sprite Ice is indeed on the shelves and, as reported, is really not very good.

Comment: Had some on the weekend -- oh my lord, that stuff's awful.

3 minutes after your last mouthful, you say? I had it nearly 48 hours ago and I'm still waiting.

It tastes just like regular Sprite, but it's blue. What genius at Coke HQ came up with this crap?

Comment: sprite ice is not only on the shelves here in canada, but it is thrust at you on the street by tanned twentysomethings in company SUVs.

what initially seemed like a welcome respite from a hot day turned out to be a less-viscous version of cough syrup, or that mint-flavoured fluoride that the dentist made you use as a kid.

ugh. i couldn't finish my free sample, regardless of its being in a supercute half-size can.

Comment: I drank nothing but this stuff in Australia over the summer - as you can tell from that, I really love it. Wish I could get it here in the UK. It's particularly good with vodka and a lot of ice.
