I’ve put my mouth where my blog is and sampled the limited-edition Pepsi Spice. Below are my tasting notes.

Pepsi_spice_in_snifter_1Particulars:

  • 20 FL OZ plastic bottle
  • $1.29
  • Purchased at 7-11

    Color:
    Clean, peach-amber reddish-brown hue

    Nose:
    Crisp, sparkling sweet aroma with hints of ginger and cinnamon

    Flavor:
    Initial burst of cola effervescence which gives way to a rush of ginger infused sugar sweetness. The flavor mellows in its medium body that is accented by slight cinnamon overtones. This cola closes with a lingering spicy ginger intensity finish.

    Impressions:
    Pepsi Spice tastes less caramel sweet than regular Pepsi and because of its spiciness, its flavor is reminiscent of Coca-Cola Classic. I don’t taste Red #40 and that’s probably a good thing. I was hoping the taste would be more adventurous with stronger cinnamon and ginger flavors.

    Verdict:
    There is not enough of an interesting flavor to make Pepsi Spice remarkable. Nice try, but Pepsi Spice only hints at having uniquely delicious taste appeal.
