Paradise Mango Pepsi Next!

Earlier this year I wrote about Pepsi Next, the new flavor of Pepsi that sort of tasted like Coca Cola. I enjoyed the drink when I wrote about it and continued to purchase it up pretty much every time I went to the store. I had hoped that Pepsi Next would catch on with the general public and sell well enough to have it either stick around full time or make an appearance each and every summer.

What I did not expect was to start finding alternative flavors of Pepsi Next mere months after its initial release. Paradise Mango feels like a strange offshoot flavor that should have happened next year, sometime after Pepsi Next achieved a better firmhold on the soda market and solidified itself as a long term player in the game. Instead we are getting Pepsi Next: Paradise Mango rightthefucknow ...  my theory is that Pepsi panicked and thinks the world is coming to an end this December. Better to release Paradise Mango now... just in case.

The name of the game is Mango flavored Pepsi Cola... Pepsi Cola Next.... Mango flavored Pepsi Next Cola. To say that this flavor is a little on the 'busy' side is a bit of an understatement. Paradise Mango has like seventeen different things all going on at the same time and somehow, it still manages to work.

Do not even attempt to understand it. What we are looking at defies all logic. A limited edition flavor of a soda that is probably already a limited edition. It should not be any good, yet Paradise Mango is totally worth checking out. It reminds me of a long defunct flavor of Dr. Pepper called 'berries and cream'. One of those offshoot brands that by all rights 'aught to make you vomit into the toilet ... only it doesn't. It is actually somehow better than the original flavor.

Next time you are at the store be sure to give Pepsi Next: Paradise Mango a look. The months of Summer are very quickly starting to come to a close. Before much longer we'll be smack dab in the middle of fall with winter quickly closing in on us. It's best to celebrate all things Summer while we still can. Paradise Mango is a fantastic flavor of soda that seems right at home here in late July and early August!
