No soda rivalry is greater than that between Coca-Cola and PepsiCo. When it comes to the lemon-lime variety, however, Coca-Cola's Sprite has been the clear winner for decades.
PepsiCo is hoping to establish a worthy competitor, however, with the introduction of Starry. This lemon-lime soda will replace Sierra Mist in the drink titan's arsenal, according to CNN.
To make it stand out compared to Sprite, PepsiCo is banking on a stronger, more aromatic lime-lemon flavor. It's also attempting to make Sprite seem more old-school, as the new Starry brand will target Gen Z audiences through advertising, can designs, and their slogan, "Starry Hits Different."
Whether Starry could stand up to Sprite, Sierra Mist, or even 7-UP (Pepsico's other lemon-lime soda offering) remains to be seen, however.
Standard and sugar-free versions of Starry are now available in grocery stores nationwide.
