Sierra Mist Natural Lemon-Lime Soda With Real Sugar

33

PepsiCo has just launched their newly reinvented carbonated soft drink Sierra Mist Natural lemon-lime soda nation-wide. This time, the Sierra Mist is made with real sugar with other natural flavors, rather than HFCS and caffeine free. Also, there are no artificial ingredients, but only five natural ingredients to make this soda. Since its natural, I assume it will give you at least a bit of essence of the natural taste right?  Well, you have to try it to find out.

The newly designed logo is definitely better looking and more attractive than the previous versions. It gives more vibe to it. As for the color and the texture of this newly reinvented Sierra Mist Natural is almost same as water with the exception of carbonation. Up one busting the cap, there’s no any distinguishing aroma coming out from the soda except with a lightly sweetened soda scent. The first couple sips were not sweet as I thought it would be and I couldn’t taste any lemon-lime flavor as well. As you drink more, the carbonation in the soda seems to be a lot less than other carbonated soft drinks that I had before. The crisp and refreshing taste could only be grasped after you’ve put the soda in the fridge for over an hour. Also, the sweet taste dominates over the lemon-lime flavor, but the sweetness tasted way better than high fructose corn syrup sweetener. The lemon-lime flavor was quite unrecognizable due to overly sweetened taste. Some how, there’s a bitterness taste after you chuck down few sips of Sierra Mist Natural soda. As for the aftertaste, it leaves a mouth full of sweet taste.

For those who are concerned about the health benefits, this new look carbonated soft drink Sierra Mist Natural contains 100 calories, 25g of sugar, and 25g of Carbs and 20mg sodium. The natural ingredients that make this Sierra Mist Natural include:  Carbonated Water, Natural Flavor, Sugar, Citric Acid, and Potassium Citrate.

Overall, it tastes a little bit better than previous Sierra Mist and could be an alternative if you can’t find any good carbonated soft drinks. The reason I want to try this so called natural flavor is because my family has always been a fan of 7-Up and I wanted to know if it tastes better than 7-up. The new look seems very attractive and could be the real deal. Right now, I’m looking forward to try their Sierra Mist Naturally Sweetened Cranberry Splash.

    In the picture above, I can’t see the ingedients as stated in the link that sent me to this site. Only the nutritionals statement is shown. can you please share the ingredients below the nutritionals before i get a free sample? Also, how are the ingredients processed for low acid heat resistant mold and mycobacterium “are they still considered natural at that point?? Or does the carbonation”kill” or only “suppress” these micro-organisms? Just curious, I have a compromised immune system and need to know that they won’t grow in my intestines…

    I did drink sierra mist as my all time refesher. And I bought a case thinking it had just changed the box it came in. Well, I like the old sierra mist much better. This taste like a diet soda. I will change to some thing else. Can’t you sell both. And see what the people like. I will try 7-up or sprite. Sorry

    Thank you for the new Sierra Mist soda with sugar! I love it and have recommended it to my family and friends who are also enjoying it. I had all but given up drinking soda of any kind until I tried Sierra Mist. Its clean, fresh, crisp taste and thirst quinching quality have made me a fan. My first sip took me back to my childhood and the way soda used to taste. Great work!

    Great drink, love Sierra Mist and love it even more now without the HFCS. Now if they can get more sodas this way it will be even better for all soda drinkers. Thanks Pepsi…..

    The old Sierra Mist tasted much better. I thought they just changed the label. When Sierra Mist came out, I thought that it was better tasting then either 7up or Sprite. Not anymore. DUMB IDEA!

    I absolutely am thrilled that I now have Sierra Mist Natural to drink. Because of food allergies and an ammune deficiency disease I have been drinking – for YEARS – only water and green tea. I love the taste of this drink and it makes great slushies! Thanks PepsiCo

    This has to be the NASTIEST tasting drink I have ever put to my lips! It tastes moldy I thought my taste was just off when I tried the first one. Took in about 1/3 of the stuff. So, tonight I got another, and it still had that bitter moldy taste. I think Immuno compromised has a great point, is this stuff heated enough to take care of any mycobacterium that it might contain.

    Again, my take on this is it is nasty and I will not ever drink even one sip of this stuff again! Please. I would rather have the fructose or what ever else it was sweetened with before and some natural taste from the lemon and the limes…heck, I’ll even put up with the preservatives. Just so I know it is heated until all bacteria are taken care of.

    Please go back to the old stuff, please, please! This stuff is GROSS!

    Alternative to high fructose and * citric acid* is a cola by the name of “blue sky organic soda, new century cola.” It taste like the original coca cola that I drank as a kid.
    also citric acid in most products is not made from fruit, but is processed by frumentation of CORN! this is the same source as high fructose corn syrup.

    I think the new Sierra Mist Natural is VERY much better than regular Sierra mist and 7-UP!!! Much better flavor!

    Sierra Mist Natural tastes MUCH better than originally and better than 7UP! :*)

    What is meant by “real sugar”? Fructose is a real sugar, as are lactose, glucose and sucrose. Which is it? Is there any fructose in Sierra Mist?

    Well, sadly it still has citric acid and the ever ambiguous “natural flavors” which in this case could either be lemon and/or lime, or something completely different that just happens to taste correct after processing. One could debate at what point an ingredient is no longer natural, but my real concern is that citric acid is a major migraine trigger, as is citrus in general.

    A lot of people who get headaches and migraines don’t actually realize what chemicals and food substances are the triggers because they don’t always hit with identifiable timing. Or, they just haven’t seen the list or tested products themselves to see what sets things off. I’d like to see a soda come out that has no migraine triggers, no hidden ingredients (“natural flavors” *sigh*), and is also friendly to people allergic to gluten (no caramel color please unless a safe source is given). Sadly I don’t see this happening any time soon… and well, water is the healthiest thing anybody can drink anyways. And it’s free.

    I stumbled a cross Sierra Mist just recently and I love it warm or cold, especially the smallest bottles which can sometimes be hard to find.

    I like the fact that there is much less carbonation than any other drink of the same ilk. It tastes different also. Given a choice between the smallest bottle, cans & the large bottle (don’t remember the ounces at the moment) I would pick the small bottle or nothing. The others seem to have more carbonation.

    I do have a question though. Would the amount of citric acid interfere with say a blood pressure pill or any other medication? I don’t see any warning on the bottle, but I just personally want to know as the doctors don’t know what they’re talking about, but nonetheless I rely on sometimes, because they can be useful.

    Thank you for your helpfulness,

    Carolyn

    I Think you should do some research on the internet and ask other qualified doctors to answer your concerns. Sorry that i can’t help you with your concern.

    7up isn’t “all natural” like the claim, if you read the ingredients. High fructose corn syrup. Fucking gross.

    As for Sierra Mist, I love the new soda, but I recently got a bad batch or something. Has a slightly plastic taste to it, which is really creeping me out. The first 6 pack I got of it didn’t have that at all. :(

    I think Sierra Mist is one of the best drinks ever.I think this because it has this really good taste and because the label is very “moving”. Yes, it does have a sort of strange taste but its not bad. I would recommend sierra mist to anyone and everyone!

    I highly support Pepsis move to make a soda without that subsidized, destructive high-fructose corn syrup. It tastes better and is less bad for you than traditional American soda, Bravo!

    At last! WE love your new Sierra Mist, we prefer the diet, but if the regular is as good as the diet, you have a winner.
    The crisp, fresh flavor is delicious in itself. And also great for
    mixer for adult beverages.
    Thank you

    I think they upped the sugar. That bottle says 25 grams. The current Sierra Mist has 37 grams per serving. I’m assuming that may be the diet version.

    I just started drinking this yesterday again. I KNOW it is helpful to my digestion. Coke causes problems with my digestion. This is what I have been looking for, for a LONG time. 7UP causes my lips to crack (I wonder if its the calcium preservative), this does not. 7UP can have a gritty after taste. (Again is this the calcium persevevative). 7UP also CONSTIPATES me. That IS calcium!!!! I Sprite has a sort of bitter, strong not so clean taste. Again, it is probably in the choice of preservatives used. It doesnt have the calcium, so it doesnt crack my lips, or cause constipation, but it doesnt actually HELP my digestive tract. I have drank Sierra Mist (I drink regular, not diet), and have always recognized how it makes me feel regular. Coke actually causes a gummy build up in my colon. Believe me on this. Now for the skin effects-cola moisturizes the skin, but can cause too much oils and reactions there after we dont want. 7UP as I said is a bit too drying, Sprite is sort of neutral on the skin, and Sierra Mist actually clears my skin and seems to cause it to go thru the right cycles. I also notice it HALTS cold sores and/or seriously encourages them to retreat/heal up. I hope this write helps lots of you. Im going to research a little on potassium citrate. It might be what the big benefit is in it. By the way, this stuff works for all above mentioned BETTER than lemonade or lemon in water.

    This is all garbage. Blended Genetically Modified high fructose corn syrup and Sugar Beet, Nothing Natural about it other than the process of you pissing it out naturally. Disgusting to believe you can put “Natural” on something and by law have that be so vague. What a society catered by big corporations. I pray there is a heaven and hell.
