HOUSTON (KDAF– A can of drink probably isn’t what you grab before going to bed, but PepsiCo is hoping they can change that with a new drink called Driftwell.

The company says the improved water will help consumers relax and unwind.

PepsiCo says the functional drink contains 200 mg of L-theanine and 10% of the daily recommended intake of magnesium. There are studies that claim that L-theanine, an amino acid found in mushrooms and black tea, promotes stress reduction and better sleep.

Pepsi employees conceptualized Driftwell through an internal corporate competition.

According to PepsiCo, Driftwell will be available nationwide on e-commerce sites in December and in supermarkets in the first quarter of 2021. Pepsi says this is the fastest drink they’ve ever marketed outside of the company.

The drink is sold in 7.5 ounce mini cans and comes in only one flavor: blackberry lavender.
