Review: Diet Sierra Mist Strawberry Kiwi Splash
Im a total diet soda junkie, and have tried pretty much every one on the market at least once. In my opinion there aren't enough fruit flavored ones available, so when I saw this last week I HAD to pick it up. I'm a fan of the regular diet sierra mist, so I knew right off the bat I'd enjoy this. The flavor starts off just like any other lemon lime soda with a crisp taste, but then all of the sudden you get that extra fruit flavored kick. It is predominately strawberry in my opinion, but maybe there are subtle hints of kiwi as well. The thing I enjoyed most about this soda is that it is very reminiscent of my all time favorite diet soda, diet mountain dew supernova, which unfortunately seems to be seasonal in my area and I can no longer find it. One key difference between these two, however, is that the diet sierra mist is caffeine free. This is actually a positive aspect in my book, because I can enjoy this at night with a late dinner, where as the diet dew (and other caffeinated sodas) I have to cut out around lunchtime or I'm stuck with a bout of insomnia (very caffeine sensitive). I definitely recommend picking this up even if you aren't a fan of most diet sodas. It doesn't have that artificial sweetener after taste that can be off-putting, and is actually very refreshing. This one is going to become a staple in my fridge for sure.
