Happy Memorial Day! We thought we would celebrate this important holiday with another reader-requested review. We received quite the response to our Sierra Mist Free Cranberry Splash review, and amongst them were several requests for a review of Diet Sierra Mist Ruby Splash. We actually had to look for a while before we found them in stores, but they have arrived and we’re hapy to make wishes come true. There seems to be some evidence that the Ruby Splash flavor will stick around as a full-time edition of Sierra Mist, unlike the Cranberry Splash. If you’re a fan of both, and want to raise you voice to have both as full-time options, make your opinion known at Sierra Mist’s Facebook Page.
If you like grapefruit, then you’re going to like Diet Sierra Mist Ruby Splash. We’re not generally fans of sugar free drinks sweetened with aspartame and acesulfame potassium, but we’ve got to make an exception here. The distinct tartness of a pinch of grapefruit seems to completely mask the aspartame aftertaste. The marriage of the traditional lemon-lime flavor with the grapefruit flavor is a good one. In our opinion, this rendition of Sierra Mist is also much less carbonated than the others, which we think is a bonus. It’s cool and refreshing, and would make a great addition to those Memorial Day cook-outs this afternoon. With only 35mg of sodium and 65mg of potassium, it’s also a pretty healthy choice!
