Cadbury Schweppes PLC is preparing to roll out a low-calorie version of 7 Up fortified with vitamin C and calcium, giving the company its own new combatant in this summer’s soft drink wars. The product is likely to be called & Up Plus, and will have 15 calories per 12-ounce serving.

The company has not announced what flavors the new drink may come in.

Both Coke and Pepsi are introducing new mid-calorie versions of their flagship colas.
