For the past week everybody has been blogging about Pepsi White, Pepsi’s new Yoghurt flavored Pepsi drink. It appeared on conveni store shelves on Wednesday, and there were blog responses to it within minutes- but how many of those people actually TESTED the drink?
The answer is, none! So here I am, with a light-hearted taste comparison test.
Here is my hypothesis:
This is not Pepsi’s first foray into wacky flavor madness. On these pages I’ve covered Pepsi’s Blue Hawaii, and elsewhere there’s been Pepsi Cucumber, and of course Pepsi NEX zero you see pictured above.
A side-test I had running was whether real yoghurt and real Pepsi together would make ‘frogspawn’. I remember drinking this frogspawn on bar crawl nights at University- an unholy union of creme liquer and Pepsi, resulting in thick viscous gooey bubbles that blurpily popped in your mouth as you downed them as quickly as possible.
Here is video of the experiment:
So- I didn’t have much luck with the frogspawn creation- there must be some secret ingredient in Baileys that bubble-izes the Pepsi into bubbles of gross goo.
As for the taste- well, like I say gulpingly in the video- it’s not bad. At least- not terrible. I’ll never mix that particular cocktail again, but it wasn’t revolting. Consider though- I had expected curdled bubbly milk. So…
But down to brass tacks people- how does Pepsi’s version of a yoghurt drink compare?
Well- again I had to say- not bad. It wasn’ revolting. It didn’t taste anything like any yoghurt I know, but still. Perhaps it tasted more like a mouthful of bubbly pot pourri. Not my idea of delicious, and odd, but not awful.
Here- the suspects in line-up format:
Pepsi- keep on innovating!
