You don’t typically think of Pepsi as something to drink when you want to fall asleep, but the company is about to add a new water beverage to their drink lineup — and it’s specifically designed to be sipped before you go to sleep. Driftwell, which launches in December, contains L-theanine and magnesium, which are ingredients said to help you relax and de-stress before falling asleep. The drink, which only comes in one flavor right now — blackberry lavender — is sold in 7.5-ounce mini cans which, according to a PepsiCo spokesperson, is the perfect size for “hydrating before bedtime without requiring another trip to the bathroom.” (CNBC)
