Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Pepsi Max Cherry Confirmed sighting: Pepsi Max Cherry
Posted: 16:33 Sun 19-Jun-2011. Price: 1.49. Location: Asda, Benton, North Tyneside.
It's something of a free refill to last week's beverage bonanza, as first-time spotter "Kris Stobbs" has discovered possibly the UK (or world-wide) debut of Pepsi Max Cherry, restricting his comments to: "Found this last night, delicious stuff" - which means there's also space for "Chester's" photographic evidence of the previously debated Fruitizz from McDonald's, lamenting: "Somehow it's not a mainline product. It's the only drink I have in McDonald's as I don't drink diet due to the [allegedly] deadly sweeteners. Also listed on McDonald's site under Drinks, Fanta."

...Thanks guys - my own McDonald's-monitoring saw me suitably impressed by their new Double Taste Shakes, even though it's something like 1.59 for a normal-flavour shake in a seethrough cup with either mango-Solero or fudge-sundae sauce squirted onto the inside (and the Tropical and Vanilla one was reminiscent of Ben Elton's 1980s routine about needing an industrial suction pump to get it up the straw).

Elsewhere: Foodstuff Finds has been supping on Kenco Millicano Whole Bean Instant Coffee and Dreamy Coconut Drinking Fudge; I've hardly seen any sign yet of Volvic Touch of (Summer) Fruit; but maybe that's because the shelves will soon be full of Levi Roots' Reggae Reggae ambient juices (in Orange, Papaya 'n' Lime; Blood Orange 'n' Pomegranate; or Spicy Reggae Reggae Tomato Juice, 1.59), the perfect complement to his Reggae Reggae crisps, Rasta Pasta sauce, and all your other reggae-related needs.

Comment: I've tried the 'Double Shakes' and you're right about them being very hard to suck up through the straw - especially the excess syrup... have a look: http://www.gobblemonkey.com/2011/06/mcdonalds-double-taste-shakes.html

Comment: hey Gobble Monkey, great reviews - I've added you to the increasingly less-out-of-date link-list on the left-hand side :)

Comment: Cherry Pepsi Max is fantastic... I tried the Cherry Pepsi the other day... and for a Sugar Free alternative, its not as bitter as Pepsi Max and puts up a good fight with the other 2 Cherry drinks... Cherry 7UP and Cherry Coke (has Cherry Coke Zero been released here?)
