PURCHASE, N.Y., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Made with real sugar and nothing artificial - no preservatives, no artificial flavors and, as always, no caffeine, Sierra Mist Natural is being touted as the reinvention of lemon-lime soda made with only five simple and natural ingredients.  And to prove it, PepsiCo is giving away 10 million cans of Sierra Mist Natural this weekend at 2,800 Walmart Supercenters nationwide.

Every person who visits a Walmart Supercenter today, October 9 between 9am and 6pm will receive a free can of Sierra Mist Natural, while supplies last.  The Sierra Mist Natural "free for all" is the largest sampling event in the history of PepsiCo or Walmart.

Responding to consumer demand for products made with natural ingredients, Pepsi-Cola North America Beverages transformed Sierra Mist, its popular lemon lime soda, into Sierra Mist Natural.  A recent study by the Hartman Group confirmed the demand for natural, revealing that the majority of Americans say natural is an important driver of food and beverage choices they make for themselves and their families.(1)
