New Limited Time but Fabulous Product Alert!
Back before the corn allergy, I remember not liking Vanilla flavored Pepsi/Coke very much. It tasted like toothpaste to me and I couldn't understand why people liked it. Of course, I also thought diet Pepsi/Coke tasted like pure bitter acid.
However, this is delicious. It tastes like cream soda almost. I *love* it. You can easily taste the vanilla but it does have some citrus acid in it to give it that bit of lemon/lime kick.
I was so excited when I heard that Pepsi was going to do Wild Cherry and Vanilla Pepsi with real sugar this summer. I can't have the wild cherry, unfortunately (stupid cherry/berry allergy!) but Vanilla is completely on the table. I've bought one case to try and I'm going to get a bunch more before Pennsic.
Pepsi, thank you! Not only can I drink Sierra Mist no matter where I go (it's always sugar based), and the throwback Pepsi, but now I can see if this Vanilla Pepsi is an option too. PLEASE keep these around. I'd love to see what this tastes like with gingerbread at Christmas. :-)
To other corn allergy sufferers, I know those with the most severe kind might still have issues because of the caramel coloring. I have no idea if it is corn based or not but I haven't have a reaction. My corn allergy is mild compared to the other food allergies I have so I don't always have a reaction if it's a very small amount. (Like if it says 2% or less of dextrose, a corn based product, I can have the recommended serving without any issues.) So, please, double check.
Now back to your regularly scheduled Pennsic madness...
