Diet Pepsi Cherry Vanilla

dpcherryvanilla.jpgDr. Pepper has their Diet Cherry Vanilla, which Iíve always thought is pretty good. Now, Pepsi thinks they can successfully combine the flavors of Diet Pepsi, cherry, and vanilla. Apparently, itís not easy to do. The cherry flavor of Diet Pepsi Cherry Vanilla is very strong and the vanilla flavor not far behind. The two flavors are so prominent, in fact, that itís very hard to taste any cola flavor. I guess this could be a good thing if you donít like the taste of Diet Pepsi, but my preference would be for a more balanced combination of flavors that complement, rather than cover up, the cola flavor. According to the Pepsi web site, Diet Pepsi Cherry Vanilla will only be available for a limited time this summer. So, get one soon if you want to drink a below-average diet soft drink that will soon be long forgotten, like so many other Pepsi varieties.

Phoood rating: So-so

I normally drink Coke Zero, and there is a diet vanilla variety, which is really good. There's a diet cherry Coke Zero, also good. And Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper is excellent!

I'm so confused now!

Since January 2009 I have just shied away from any Pepsi products. Hard as I have tried, I cannot for the life of me figure out the Pepsi logo. Different style/color logo on different Pepsi types. Confused. So I quit Pepsi. I like constant, not confusion.

Please Coke, don't take away the 'Dynamic' ribbon. Or i'll choke you with it. The End.

I definitely like this new product. My other favorite is Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. I like the mixture of the cherry and vanilla flavors. Although I am not a huge fan of cherry flavored colas, I do enjoy vanilla flavor. The two together are definitely a hit with me! Sadly, I am having a hard time finding the cherry vanilla in stores.
