Pepsi Caribbean Gold
Famous for annually releasing eccentric new flavours like cucumber, baobab, and mont blanc, the new product we've all been waiting for from Pepsi and this year's topical flavour is "Pepsi: Caribbean Gold". A shining gold soda that will be flavoured with white sapote.
White Sapote is harvested when it is still young and relatively hard and then allowed to ripen after picking. It is soft and easy to eat. The very strong sweetness of the fruit makes it easy to forget that it's a member of the citrus family and the flavour is something like a mix between a banana and a pear.
