Pepsi Jazz

I’m such a sucker for those newfangled soda flavors. Case in point; when Pepsi Blue came out a few years ago, I’d always look for it in stores and buy it as often as I could. Everyone else thought it tasted like blueberry flavored battery acid, but I loved the stuff. (Maybe I’d like the taste of battery acid, too?) I loved Vanilla Coke from the day it came out until the day it was discontinued. (Vanilla Coke WILL come back!)

So, when Scott and I first heard of Pepsi Jazz a few weeks ago, I knew we had to try it out. With flavors such as Strawberries & Cream and Black Cherry French Vanilla, how could I not resist? We stopped by our neighborhood 7-11 and picked up the flavors, and to no surprise, I took to the Strawberries & Cream as I had with the Pepsi Blue back in 2003. It’s gotten to the point now that whenever we’re in a grocery store, I’ll be on the lookout for the 20oz of the stuff as I’ll crave it at inopportune times. And hey, the bottles have been pretty cheap in stores; I believe I bought my bottle today for .79 at Target, and bought one at Kroger for .67 earlier in the week. You can’t beat those prices, especially since 20oz bottles of soda are costing upwards of $1.29 these days! $1.29! I remember them being .99 just seven years ago when I graduated high school! Ridiculous.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my love for Pepsi Jazz with the general internet public. Does anyone else out there love the drink as much as I do?
