Lemon Lemon and Izze Fusions, launched in early 2017 as part of PepsiCo’s “Next Gen” CSD push, have been mostly phased out of the U.S. market. Both sodas were formulated with a stevia/sugar blend and less than 70-calories per 12-oz can. Lemon Lemon, a sparkling lemonade, contains 6% lemon juice. Izze Fusions contained 5% juice.
