…as Lemon Pepsi, a NFL Kickoff Limited Edition flavor! I noticed it at work tonight and just HAD to have it! Sheer joy was pumping through my veins at the thought of a lemon-flavored Pepsi (promised on the bottle to deliver a “kick of lemon”). I’m a sucker for gimmick flavors of, well, anything, as my fiancee can attest to.
Although I now remember Pepsi Twist, that drink never popped into my mind when seeing this lemon Pepsi at first. I was blindsided, sacked, if you will, and perhaps my brain fumbled by the event of a new flavor arriving on the shelves, so I did not make the connection. Honestly, Pepsi Twist never appealed to me though. I never drank it. But ladies and gentlemen, as of 10PM eastern standard time, I can tell you I have tried Pepsi Twist and the flavor is…
You can definitely smell a lemon aroma coming off the drink and it’s nothing I’d ever care to drink again or want to see restaurants serving, but it’s alright. It’s almost like drinking Pepsi with a lemon drop in your mouth– not something you want to do everyday, but something that you might feel like doing on a whim… or a dare.
