Pepsi is going tropical with its latest flavor: Pepsi Mango.
The new mango-flavored drink is Pepsi’s first new permanent flavored cola in five years. Pepsi Mango, also available in a zero sugar variety, will be available nationwide on March 22.
Customers will be able to get the beverage 12-packs of 12-ounce cans and 20-ounce bottles.
“Mango is one of the most popular fruits in the world, and it serves as the perfect complement to Pepsi, creating an irresistible combination that our fans can enjoy everywhere throughout the year,” said Todd Kaplan, vice president of marketing at Pepsi.
To promote the launch, the beverage company announced a matchmaking social media series in April to help singles find a partner. The series will feature single people with personality intros and contact information to facilitate introductions.

In November, Pepsi launched an apple-pie flavored cola that was only available via sweepstakes. In 2020, Pepsi also planned to launch Pepsi Café, but said in a statement to USA TODAY that high consumer demand for its core and existing portfolio impacted the launch.
In January, Coca-Cola launched Coca-Cola with Coffee and Coca-Cola with Coffee Zero Sugar in three flavors: Dark Blend, Vanilla and Caramel.
