PURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCola North America has added two new products to its beverage line-up, Dole Sparklers and Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. Both products will debut this fall.
Dole Sparklers are low-sugar sparkling juices made with real fruit, B-complex vitamins and 50% less sugar and calories than regular juice drinks. The new beverage comes in four flavors: pomegranate blueberry, orange tangerine, cranberry raspberry and pink grapefruit. Dole Sparklers will be available in October, packaged in single-serve, 16.9-oz proprietary plastic bottle with a distinctive "bubble" design embossed into the packaging.
Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash is a limited edition flavor extension to the Sierra Mist lemon-lime soft drink line. The flavor will be introduced in November, as a tie-in to the holiday season, and will be sold in 20-oz and two-liter bottles as well as 12-packs of 12-oz cans.
Pepsi-Cola North America also plans summer launches of Jazz, a new low-calorie cola from Diet Pepsi, to be available in Black Cherry French Vanilla and Strawberries & Crème flavors; and Ben & Jerry's Milkshakes in classic Ben & Jerry’s flavors.
