Notable for higher caffeine content, the citrus flavor is actually quite good. Smooth overall with a small pucker factor.

        Review: Pepsi 1893 – Original Cola

        A marketing-driven product with not enough differentiation from standard Pepsi to be notable. Buy when discounted.

          Review: 7-Select Premium by Jones – Bluesberry Smash

          Try it only if you like knockoff cherry, strawberry, and raspberry flavor. Way too sweet and fake tasting. Like a bad Fanta on steroids.

              Review: Monster Energy Gronk

              Unless you still think Deflategate was a conspiracy against the Patriots, you'll want take a pass on this flavor. It's a fumble.

                    Review: Mtn Dew Black Label

                    Despite the use of sugar, has a pretty subdued cherry taste. Nothing quite unique about it, other than the awesome can design. Meh.

                          Review: Pepsi Max Cherry Blast 16 oz. Can

                          A standard cherry flavor extension for Pepsi Max, but unlike the flagship, this iteration is lacking the inclusion of ginseng. Worth a try.
