Mist Twst (pronounced "Mist Twist") is a lemon-lime flavored soft drink. Introduced in 2016, it follows Sierra Mist, a similar lemon-lime soda PepsiCo introduced in 1999 and eventually made available in all United States markets by 2003. Mist Twst and its predecessor Sierra Mist have competed with The Coca-Cola Company's Sprite brand and Dr Pepper Snapple Group's 7 Up.
Teem (1966-1984) Edit
1966-1977 EditCans of Teem were the first to include the phrase, "From the Makers of Pepsi-Cola."
The logo was redesigned differently; how the Teem name is written remains the same, only it's in italics.
Lemon-Lime Slice (1984-2000) Edit
With the product sold as Teem in other countries, the US market Teem got its name changed to Lemon Lime Slice, and a diet version of it was added.
The cartoon-ish typeface of the logo was replaced with an all-lowercase typeface in 1990.
In 1990, cans and bottles were redesigned again, making the logo tilted.
All Slice cans and bottles were redesigned four years later, and the dot of the "I" is now a normal dot. The Slice name is against a zig-zag edged abstract shape with a clip-art style image of a lemon and a lime below it.
In 1997, along with a reformulated Orange Slice, the background was blue and the typeface is now switched. New is a a twisted/crooked letter "S", serving as the brand's logo.
Sierra Mist (2000-2016) Edit
The discontinuation of Lemon Lime Slice made PepsiCo change said product's name to Sierra Mist.
A year after its launch, Sierra Mist's logo was redesigned, featuring three-peak mountains.
2006-February 2009 Edit
The logo got redesigned; areas of the word "Mist"'s letters joining together, forming a single piece. "Sierra" also got its font changed to Brush Script.
February 2009-March 2010 Edit
Sierra Mist was one of three Pepsi products to get redesigned in the same year; its logo is all lowercase letters (in the fonts of DIN Next and a blurred Helvetica Black) on a green-tinted forest.
March-August 2010 EditAppearing the shortest time period than any other logo, this Sierra Mist logo was an abstract green background with all-lowercase letters.
August 2010-October 2014 Edit
With a new formula excluding high fructose corn syrup, Sierra Mist Natural, whose logo (unlike the others) was a white background with a water splash, a lemon, a lime and the Sierra Mist name in green, succeeded regular SM."Natural" was dropped from the name and green was re-introduced as part of the background.
October 2014-March 2016 Edit
This is the first, and to date only, logo to feature an all-uppercase wording. The "M" in "Mist" was also redesigned to look like mountains.
Mist Twst (2016-present) Edit
In December 2015, Pepsi announced that Sierra Mist would get its name changed to Mist Twst; a teaser of a bottle showing the new name was revealed to the public.
PepsiCo confirmed the name change to occur. Mist Twst's logo is a green background with a yellow lemon saying "MIST TWST" with a grungy-designed lemon accompanying it. On cans and bottles, is a caption saying "Proud Sponsor of the National Basketball Association", where the logo for the National Basketball Association (NBA) is part of the cpation.
