Story 1:  Pepsi Has Created a New Relaxation Drink to Help You Sleep

After a century of trying to keep you awake, now Pepsi wants to put you to sleep.

Pepsi just announced a new product called DriftWell, which is a relaxation drink that’s supposed to help you de-stress and go to sleep.  Basically, it’s non-carbonated water in a can with a little bit of blackberry and lavender and some vitamins.

It’s set to go on sale in December.

Story 2:  Taco Bell Released Its First Custom Wine Called “Jalapeño Noir”

It’s already been a huge week for bad wine.  First, Franzia debuted a new backpack that can hold an entire box of wine.  Now TACO BELL is getting in the game.

Taco Bell Canada just debuted the brand’s first custom wine, called “Jalapeño Noir.”  They say it has “notes of wild strawberry, cherry, and beetroot.”  And it pairs well with their new Toasted Cheesy Chalupa, which won’t hit menus in the U.S. until November.

They’ve been selling bottles on the Taco Bell Canada website for 25 bucks, or about $19 American.  But it doesn’t sound like they’re planning to sell them in the U.S. anytime soon.  So if you want a bottle, get ready to drop lots of dollars on eBay.
