So, what actually is Nitro Pepsi? And where can you buy it? Read on to find out…
What is Nitro Pepsi?
Nitro Pepsi is a new Pepsi cola drink that has different bubbles. It will be released in two flavours, Draft Cola and Vanilla Draft Cola.
The soda has smaller bubbles that are infused with nitrogen to create an “unbelievably smooth, creamy texture”.
There is what Pepsi calls a “unique widget” at the bottom of every can, like you would find in beer, that creates a “frothy, foamy, smooth texture”.
Pepsi recommends that the drink is served cold, without ice, poured into a tall glass and sipped directly from the glass rather than through a straw.
Nitro Pepsi release date
Pepsi has revealed that Nitro Pepsi will be available in newly designed cans in both single serve and 4-pack varieties.
It will be launching across America on March 28th 2022 alongside a marketing campaign and new national television commercial.
