Pepsi-Cola North America has unveiled an addition to its diet CSD portfolio in the US.

The company said yesterday (22 February) that Diet Pepsi Max will be available nationwide from June. The zero-calorie cola contains extra caffeine and a hint of ginseng, and will be offered in 20-ounce and two-litre bottles as well as in 12-packs of 12-ounce cans.

"Diet Pepsi Max will bring invigoration to the masses," said Cie Nicholson, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Pepsi-Cola North America. "Adults have told us that they're constantly looking for the right balance to get them through their day and Diet Pepsi Max is uniquely formulated to give the mind and body a boost."

The national rollout will be supported by a full slate of advertising, marketing and in-store activity, Pepsi added.
