Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Red Bull Simply Cola/ Pepsi Boom International sighting: Red Bull Simply Cola/ Pepsi Boom
Posted: 19:39 Thu 15-May-2008. Price: About 4 Swiss Francs. Location: Shell Garage, Allschwill, Switzerland. Nutritional unusualness: 100% Naturell. Pasteurisiert. Lots of ingredients.
Two caramel-coloured beverages today, though "Stewart" doesn't go into too much detail about Switzerland's Red Bull Simply Cola, describing it as: "Quite nice, kind of somewhere between Pepsi and Classic Coke I think. I guess this area is a cola test-marketer's dream as it was just over the border in France I found Coke Blak." Still, he sounds a bit more energised than "Chubworth", who paid 85 euro-cents for a can of "Senza Caffeina" Pepsi Boom (Standa supermarket, via Pietraspana, Florence), only to postulate: "Caffeine-free Pepsi, which has no real reason for existence given that, without sugar or caffeine, there is never going to be any sort of boom going on here."

...In other soft-drink targets: apologies for this rubbish phone photo of Selfridges' (frankly terrifying-looking) Diet Coke In The City promotional tie-in; I'd have to make an effort to tell the difference between Barr's Originals Ginger Beer (99p/750ml, Tesco) and Schweppes' new Classic version (currently 1.49/1.25 litres BOGOF, Sainsbury) - though Sainsbury's own brand now makes the intriguing claim "We don't use Aspartame... this product is sweetened with Sucralose"; and Nestle are catching up with the increasingly crowded cold coffee market with their Nesfrappe Chilled Lattes, in Classic or Mocha, 250ml for around 1.69.

Comment: is pepsi boom sugar free? we just got back from mallorca and they had it but i didn't bother because i don't like sugary drinks. they also had full fat coke caffeine free, which i've always thought was missing from over here.

Comment: Red Bull sent over a load of Cola to the Sci-fi London film festival (http://www.sci-fi-london.com) a couple of weeks back and I grabbed a can - more Panda pop/soda stream than regular coke and with a bit of a red bully kick. Not great, but seemed to go down quite well with the all-nighter showing goers.

Comment: I've tried the Nesfrappe classic iced coffee, very yummy, think it has been revived as I remember it in cartons in the 80's although it was UHT then and not in the chilled section. My only gripe would be to say it's too small. Taste-wise it's pretty much like a Starbucks coffee frappuccino without the ice.

Comment: Found Red Bull Cola some at my local newsagents in Mile End, East London, the other day - it tastes a lot like fizzy cola bottles as opposed to 'real' Coke.

Comment: I am actually really enjoying the Red Bull Cola. Very refreshing, especially when ice cold. I also love the full ingredients list, so you can sit there trying to see if you can actually taste the Mustard seeds, or Cinnamon in it as you drink it.

Comment: If you buy a bottle of Panda Pops, let it go flat, you will get exactly the same taste as Red Bull Cola.
