Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola Canada Beverages are squaring off in preparation for a new round of competition in the cola wars.

Pepsi will get the first shot in this month with the introduction of Crystal Pepsi, a clear, caffeine-free soda with natural flavoring.

For the calorie-conscious, there will also be Diet Crystal Pepsi, which contains only one calorie.

Coca-Cola has yet to announce when it will counterpunch, but when it does the product will be Tab Clear, a colorless, sugar-free cola containing caffeine.

Coca-Cola has already announced it will begin introducing Tab Clear to u.s. consumers this month. PA
