PURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCo, Inc. will expand its Pepsi Next line of beverages this month with the launch of two new fruit-flavored varieties: cherry vanilla and paradise mango.

The beverages with the new flavors will have 60 calories in a 12-oz bottle and 100 calories in a 20-oz bottle. PepsiCo said the beverages will have less caffeine than the original flavor, which contains 27 mg per 7.5-oz can.

Pepsi’s web site describes the soda as “today’s breakthrough in innovation — a true cola experience with 60% less sugar.”

The original Pepsi Next flavor contains 10 grams of sugar and is made with several sweeteners, including high-fructose corn syrup and aspartame.
