When it comes to limited-edition beverages, Pepsi continues to rise to the occasion year after year. And just when we thought we’d seen the last of Pepsi’s seasonal releases for 2015 with their mystery-flavored Halloween range, they go and announce a special Christmas present, with the release of a new Pepsi White Cola for this year’s winter season.
On sale from Dec 8 for 151 yen, the Pepsi White Cola features silver-patterned packaging with gold-lettering, which, they tell us, is perfect for the “party season.”
The limited-edition beverage is the latest in a long line of flavors that have stepped away from using traditional, dark Cola-coloured hues. There was a green, ice cucumber variation back in 2007, followed by Blue Hawaii the following year, and even a Pepsi Pink in 2014. A white-colored, yogurt-flavored Pepsi was actually released in 2008, and was then re-released four years later in a mikan (Japanese mandarin) flavor.
It’s been three long years since we’ve seen white cola on the shelves in Japan, and this time round we’re being promised a more refreshing citrus flavor. With mikan having a more subtle zing than most citrus fruits, we’re hoping that means this one will pack a real orangey punch. A white cola that tastes like an orange? That’s definitely something to cure the winter blues this season.
