Review: Pepsi Max Ginger


A quick review of the new Pepsi Max Ginger flavour. I've never been a big Pepsi Max drinker, I  do like it occasionally but I generally prefer the taste of Coke Zero. If I do buy Pepsi Max it tends to be their delicious Pepsi Max Cherry flavour. 


I have to admit that I was surprised to find out that Pepsi had released a ginger flavour - it's not the first flavour combination I would have thought of for Pepsi Max. Personally, I've always hoped that they would release a raspberry flavour one day. I also need the Pepsi Max Vanilla that was released in Australia this year - please bring this one to the UK too!


Of course I had to try the new Pepsi Max Ginger straight away but since ginger is not my favourite flavour, I decided on a multipack of cans (so I can give some away if I didn't like it). Thankfully the Pepsi Max Ginger is extremely enjoyable. The ginger is immediately evident and provides a zingy flavour and background warmth. It's similar to a ginger beer but without the heat or kick that a ginger beer can have. The original Pepsi Max flavour still comes through to give it a sweeter and milder edge. 

It's a lovely tasting drink and, whilst I don't think the Pepsi Max Ginger is as easy to guzzle down as some of the other Pepsi Max varieties, it's one that I would still enjoy in smaller quantities. I'll definitely be buying this one again but I'll still stick to the cans rather than getting a whole bottle.

    1. I really hope it's released in Germany soon. It's beyond annoying when some flavours are only available in certain countries!

    2. I feel that way about Kit Kat here. Chunky ones aplenty - but I'm pretty certain they're using a different type of chocolate. They just don't taste quite right!

  4. Good idea to stick to a can first. It's more gingery and warming than I was expecting. Worth a try though!

  6. Personally not a huge fan Pepsi max cherry is my favourite fizzy drink but I found the ginger taste of this too overpowering. I love spicy food so thought I'd love this but sadly not. But that's just me seems plenty do like it.

  7. It's really refreshing on the rocks with a slice of lime. It's well balanced and not overly gingery.
