Pepsi Introducing New Flavors

Pepsico(NEW YORK) -- Pepsi Next will be releasing two new fruit-flavored colas this month.  Available in 12 oz and 20 oz sizes, Cherry Vanilla and Paradise Mango flavors are the first to be unveiled after the original.

“This flavor is for a limited time only or while supplies last! Look for it mid July 2012,” the company’s website states.

The new flavors boast 60 calories for a 12 oz bottle and 100 calories for a 20 oz bottle.  The drinks will have less caffeine than the original flavor, which contains 27 mg per 7.5 oz can.

Pepsi’s site describes the soda as “today’s breakthrough in innovation – a true cola experience with 60% less sugar.”

The original Pepsi Next flavor contains 10 grams of sugar and is made with several sweeteners, including high fructose corn syrup and aspartame.

Pepsi Introduces the 'Next' Big Thing in Sodas

DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images(PURCHASE, N.Y.) -- Pepsi has concocted a new formula in an effort to appeal to soda drinkers who want to cut back on calories but have hesitated to switch to diet brands because of the difference in taste.

It's called Pepsi Next -- a 60-calorie variation of the regular Pepsi.  The beverage company hopes regular soda drinkers will find it's a sweet alternative to what they're used to now.

Pepsi's new venture comes as sales of carbonated sugared beverages have fallen off in recent years as adults have drifted to diet soda and water while kids opt for energy drinks.

Pepsi Next is expected to hit store shelves at the end of March.
