Wikipedia: Sprite (drink)
Sprite is a clear, lemon and lime-flavored soft drink created by the Coca-Cola Company. Sprite comes in multiple flavors, including cranberry, cherry, grape, orange, tropical, ginger, and vanilla. Ice, peach, Berryclear remix, and newer versions of the drinks are artificially sweetened. Sprite was created to compete primarily against 7 Up.
 
Wikipedia: 7 Up
7 Up (stylized as 7up outside North America) or Seven Up is an American brand of lemon-lime-flavored non-caffeinated soft drink. The brand and formula are owned by Keurig Dr Pepper although the beverage is internationally distributed by PepsiCo.
 
Wikipedia: Teem
Teem was a brand of lemon-lime-flavored soft drink produced by The Pepsi-Cola Company. It was introduced in 1959 as Pepsi’s answer to 7 Up and Sprite.
   
Wikipedia: Sierra Mist
Sierra Mist was a lemon-lime flavored soft drink line. Originally introduced by PepsiCo in 1999, it was eventually made available in all US markets by 2003. The drink was rebranded as “Mist Twst” in 2016, but reverted to Sierra Mist in 2018. In early 2023, Sierra Mist was replaced by Starry. The brand was aimed at competing with The Coca-Cola Company’s Sprite brand and Keurig Dr Pepper’s 7 Up.
 
Wikipedia: Starry (drink)
Starry is a lemon-lime soft drink distributed in the United States by PepsiCo. Distribution first began in January 2023. The brand is aimed at competing against Coca-Cola’s Sprite and Dr Pepper’s 7 Up. Starry replaced Sierra Mist as Pepsi’s lemon-lime flavored drink, in part because Sierra Mist failed to gain market share in the growing category.
