Diet Pepsi Jazz...?

Mother just brought some of this home the other day from the commissary on base... Never seen it before!

Have you guys over the pond got it? If so, how long has it been around?

For those of you that don't know what it is... It's Diet Pepsi with strawberries and cream flavouring.

And before anyone goes 'yeuch!'

It's actually very nice and incredibly addictive..!

Re: Diet Pepsi Jazz...?

It's addicitive because PEPsi put stuff in it that shouldn't be in a cola. And that has nothing to do with the coca plant nor the taste. I've always amazed myself over the colored film you get when you swirl around a half full Pepsi bottle.
I really love strawberries and cream flavouring so this stuff must taste SUPREME.

Re: Diet Pepsi Jazz...?

Yes, I've had it here across The Pond. I like it. It's a neat new "twist" on cola. I wouldn't drink it all the time, but it's great for variety. I think we've had it over here for about 6 months.

Here in Holland we don't have it AFAIK. It sounds really weird!

We have Coca cola Zero here since recently.



It has 'zero' sugar. I like it. It tastes very well.

Interesting...

In the states Zero's come and gone. Don't think there was a market for it. They gave us that Jazz stuff a couple of months ago and personally, i hate the stuff

What I wish they'd bring back is Vanilla Coke. Haven't had that in a while, so when I was in France, I indulged on great snacks we used to have, including the aforementioned Vanilla Coke and Crunchy M&Ms!

CC Zero is still here. Just bought a pack yesterday.

Apparently Vanilla Coke is being reintroduced this year though.

I hope it's true! I loved that stuff.

Re: Diet Pepsi Jazz...?

New soft drink flavors happen every six months.

what i'm jealous of is... my buddy went to Amsterdam for a week or two not too long ago and brought back (among other things... heheheh) a bag of...

lay's potato chips. but not just any lay's potato chips. Chicken 'n Thyme potato chips. And damn if they don't taste just like it!!! he also said they had curry chips and brought back Heinz curry ketchup! i'm so jealous!!!!

hopefully they'll have this stuff in the states!

and in the olestra/olean form! (yes, i know it doesn't agree with everyone (yes, we all know the package's previous 'anal leakage' warning'), but that stuff has never bothered me)

We still have Vanilla Coke here. And diet Vanilla. And another Vanilla derivative.

All these different flavours are so confusing these days. I seem to remember about 7-8 years ago, all there was was coke, diet coke, pepsi, tango, sprite, etc. Nothing fancy.

What I meant was that, as far as I know IMHO means 'in my humble opinion'.

I'm going to Paris in less than a month! Je vais ŗ Paris dans une mois plus ou moins! That's great news they have vanilla coke there. I haven't had it in like forever, since it's no longer sold in The Netherlands. Coca cola Zero kind of replaced it , I guess. Vanilla Coke is still my all time favorite flavour.

Yeah, we have tons of cool flavours. My personal favorite is Mexican peppers and cream. It's heavenly!

The naffy? Is that an English supermarket?
