This is a Bloomberg money minute. The latest entrant in the Cola wars is not a Cola at all, but Pepsi's new story will have to fight hard if it expects to steal fans from Coke's dominant brand. With the introduction of starry, Pepsi is retiring its Sierra missed brand. At some point, you know, you just say, let's just start over. Let's create a taste profile that fits this new generation and the growing demographic trends in the country. And then we'll build the marketing around that that's very specific to them instead of just copying what Coca-Cola is doing with Sprite. Beverage digest editor and publisher to Wayne Stanford says Sprite owns about 8% of the soft drink market overall, so starry has lots of work to do. Social media is a very important element of reaching this consumer audience. Things like TikTok and Instagram and actually speaking to people on those platforms in a way that they want to be spoken to. Despite its popularity, Sprite won't be able to just sit back and drink it all in. They're going to also have to be innovative in how they're looking at that brand. Gina server, Bloomberg radio
