Pepsi One!! Bring it BACK!
Posted by on
Rating: 2/51
Since I can no longer find Pepsi One, I have been trying to find a 'replacement' with No luck. I have been suffering from headaches since. I now read online that aspartame in the other colas I have been trying may be the cause. Pepsi Max tastes terrible!! Not sure what I am going to do. I did read that diet Coke, with the yellow swirl, uses splenda. I will give it a try. Pepsi One did not have a large stock at Walmart, not sure why because often they would be out when I shopped. If Pepsi thinks that Pepsi Max is going to be a big seller I really doubt it, it tastes bad. I am insulted that Pepsi thought they could make the cans look similar and I guess we were not suppose to notice. I am not that stupid guys!

Pepsi One is the only soda without aspartame
Posted by on
Rating: 5/51
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I have been to 4 grocery stores, all the major drug/variety stores, and many delis, and no one except D'Agostino's is selling Pepsi One. Why is Pepsi not promoting it as the only non-carcinogen soda. Aspartame, which is in all diet sodas except Pepsi One causes liver shutdown and cancer. FYI, Aspartame is "Equal". Don't use it!
Pepsi One is sweetened with Splenda, famous from Dr. Atkins years ago and now also distributed under the Kirkland brand at Costco. But why can't the soda makers, esp. Pepsi move totally to Splenda instead of aspartame. It's an outrage. If any soda is "good for you", it's Pepsi One. Please I need it or I will be drinking hot tea all day which is very inconvenient. I cannot drink juice (too much sugar), cannot drink other sodas (aspartame and I am already a cancer survivor and need my liver), and I cannot sit near a kettle or coffee machine all day, esp. in Summer. And water is boring and expensive and ecologically irresponsible if bought by plastic bottle. HELP. We need our Pepsi One. PLEASE, PEPSI, PUT IT BACK ON THE MARKET!

My grandmother drank diet pepsi for a good 40 years. She lived to be 92 and besides having a little bit of breast cancer (hereditary in her family), she did not have liver problems. So I don't know, it may contribute to some people but it certainly hasn't contributed to my family. The diet pepsi did not cause her breast cancer that's for sure. Most my family drink it and most of them do not have cancer.
BigAl on 04/06/2012:
The formula goes something like this:If a 1 pound rat eats 40,000 pounds of aspartame it has a 2% higher risk of developing cancer. Not really but you get the picture.
FoDaddy19 on 04/06/2012:
Alternatively you could also just drink regular Pepsi, it doesn't have aspartame. Or if you also happen to have an aversion to HFCS, then there's always Pepsi Throwback.
dan gordon on 04/06/2012:
I think if you researched a bit Aspartane would have to be consumed in the gallons per day to have an effect on the liver. Any sweetener in pop still has a negative effect on blood sugar which is far more damaging than the fake sugar.
madconsumer on 04/06/2012:
most of these artificial sweeteners gives me a headache, even from one little packet.

very helpful review!
trmn8r on 04/06/2012:
If aspartame in the amounts involved was shown to cause cancer, it wouldn't be in the product. That's my take on it.

However, I've heard some complaints about the taste of Pepsi One, so maybe it would be wise to try different ingredients.
Churro on 04/06/2012:
"If aspartame in the amounts involved was shown to cause cancer, it wouldn't be in the product. "

By that logic then is it safe to assume there's not enough tobacco in a cigarette to cause cancer?

The OP makes a great point.
madconsumer on 04/06/2012:
best comment Churro!
MRM on 04/06/2012:
Churro, I was going to state the same comment, but changed my mind.
lexophiliac on 04/06/2012:
Aspartame, other artificial sweeteners, and many other potentially harmful ingredients are found in thousands of food products, so ingesting a small, purportedly benign amount in one product does not accurately reflect the total amount ingested when taking one's overall daily diet into consideration or how long the substances are stored in the body, and how, if at all, the buildup over time could affect the body and its organs.
Kris10 on 04/06/2012:
Really, this is why I try to avoid drinking soda as much as possible. Making your own iced tea is a good way to avoid things like this.

Not to mention that Splenda isn't much better for you than Aspartame. http://www.3fatchicks.com/11-sucralose-side-effects/

Soda, in general, is bad for you
trmn8r on 04/06/2012:
Interesting point, Kris. I make homemade iced-tea year round, and put a small amount of sugar in it when it is hot, so it dissolves. I know what's in it, because I put it there.

If I drank smaller quantities, an occasional soda I might indulge. When I had one a day, it definitely had an effect on my health. Each to his own.

But there are warnings on cigarette packages to alert you to the dangers of the product (allowing you to make a more informed decision to use the product or not). Pepsi doesn't warn you (last time I checked) of any potential danger. As such, I am assuming it's okay in normal quantities.

Drink enough water and that too can kill you.
Nohandle on 04/07/2012:
Good question about the eggs Chuck. My parents went through that and I recall my mom stating the doctors couldn't make up their minds about shrimp at that time. One week they were fine to eat the next bad for your cholesterol. She finally decided you had to eat something so eat what you liked. Seriously, many have reached that point. They are weary of the warnings about everything.

If I buy one more bottle of Pepsi Max........
Posted by on
I swear, if I buy one more bottle of Pepsi Max because the labels are so similar to regular Pepsi, I'm going to scream. Brand identity and consistency are a good thing for businesses, I get that, but come on guys and gals in the art department, let's think the way a consumer thinks. Normally, in today's world, we are in somewhat of a hurry. We are distracted by the kids, the dog, the husband, whatever. We have a PTA meeting to buy treats for and a little league game to take the mother in law to so she can see little Bobbie sit on the bench. But first you have to go to the store and get a few things. You rush up and down the aisles looking through your coupon rollodex, talking on your cell phone, running your cart up on the heal of the old lady who was trying to get out of your way but hesitated a second too long trying to figure out which way would be the safest to dive for cover. Ahh, your final destination, the soda aisle. Throw a couple 2 liters in you cart and it's off to the checkout lane. Beep, Beep, coupon, swipe, unload, beep, beep, swipe, unload, coupon, coupon, total, debit or credit, do you need help out, and your off. You get home, unload the bags into the kitchen, put away the frozen items and pop open an ice cold Pepsi because you deserve it. You toss down three or four long swallows of your favorite softdrink when suddenly you realize that it doesn't taste quite right. What? What in the bloody hell is this? You look at the bottle you just opened and there, in little print, close to the word PEPSI, is the word MAX...and then the words 0 calories stare back at you like the frozen lips of a circus clown...

OK, so I go on a bit, but there really is nothing worse(except for maybe putting on a wet bathing suit)than buying the wrong item and nothing more frustrating than having to schlep back to the store to exchange it, except when you can't exchange it because you have opened it already. I'm sure my little letter won't make a difference in you decision making but if it ever comes up at a board meeting, please vote for changing the labels so they are unmistakenly different.

Thanks for your time, and have a great day.

Good review! My wife often gets me Diet Mountain Dew instead of regular, since their packaging is so similar as well!

Then again, maybe she's trying to tell me something?

GenuineNerd on 03/27/2011:
It can get confusing. Pepsi always used dark blue labels (except for the "Throwback" Pepsi, which reverted to the red, white and blue 1980's packaging), while Diet Pepsi Max (and Pepsi One before it) used black labels. Dimly lit stores or those with darker glasses or poor vision, can esaily confuse dark blue with black.

Venice09 on 03/28/2011:
I have a similar problem with Sierra Mist. Diet always had a white label and regular had green. Now they both have green, so if you're in a hurry it's easy to pick up the wrong thing. Do companies do this on purpose? Why would they want to confuse their customers?

Good review. Very entertaining.
Anonymous on 03/28/2011:
So you want Pepsi to spend tens of millions of dollars (which will be passed on to the consumer) to change the label all because you can't stop for 2 seconds and read it before you buy it? I'll just censor myself here on what needs to be said.
redmx3racer on 03/28/2011:
I agree with throwback. If it were me, and I made the mistake of buying the wrong soda more than one or two times, then maybe I would take the extra second or 2 to ensure I did not make the same mistake. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Maybe it's because I am not a pepsi drinker but the labels don't look that similar to me. Just another reason to choose coke-diet is gray, zero is black, and regular is red!
Anonymous on 03/28/2011:
I've never ever had a problem telling the difference between regular pepsi and pepsi max. I mean how can you miss the huge "MAX" that's in red and in bold? I think you need to slow down a little bit and take a look at what you are purchasing.
momsey on 03/28/2011:
I agree with Prince. I even googled the images to make sure I wasn't remembering incorrectly. I really don't think they look so similar.
trmn8r on 03/28/2011:
If a cell phone distracts someone from picking up their favorite beverage, which should have an instantly recognizable label, think about the effect it has when you are driving a car...

To select the right item, I'd suggest that what is required is to look at the label.

If the packaging had Braille added to the handle, it would be another tip of which one was selected. But the customer would have to have the presence of mind to think about it as they walked away.

I was surprised to see Braille on my Band-Aid box.
Anonymous on 03/28/2011:
I don't care what anybody says the new pepsi packaging isn't nearly as distinctive as what it replaced. Like most good hearted people I seldom buy pepsi products because they refuse to put god on their labels but once when I did I accidentally picked up a diet cherry pepsi instead of a diet pepsi because the labels were almost identical.

The best all around answer here is to quit buying pepsi products.
Nohandle on 03/28/2011:
I bought not once but twice the wrong Pond's Cold Cream. Just a slight color variation in the lids with a new product line they were carrying. Both products side by side but I double check now. Customers will sometimes move the products around on the shelf so you best have your reading glasses on. It's really hard to tell at first glance the difference what with the lighting in some stores.
Anonymous on 03/28/2011:
Nohandle, I find the lighting in the stores to be as good as it always has been (but my eyes aren't)...lol.

That's why you need your reading glasses now. I don't go into a store for a *shopping experience* since I have better things to do and I don't leisurely browse because I hate to shop.
Venice09 on 03/28/2011:
I don't even have a cell phone and am not in a hurry or distracted, but I still pick up the wrong thing. There are so many different varieties of each product that you have to look very carefully to make sure you have the right one. As careful as I think I am, I almost always come home with at least one wrong item.
Anonymous on 03/28/2011:
I will be so thankful when all stores start posting the "No Cellphones Allowed" signs. Nothing irritates me more than someone pushing around a cart with their elbows while they're gabbing away on the phone, running their carts up onto the heels of old ladies, blocking aisles, and holding up the checkout lines.
GenuineNerd on 03/28/2011:
Another example involves another Pepsi product, Tropicana Orange Juice, in which the packaging for the no-pulp, high-pulp, calcium, Trop 50, etc. only uses slight variation in the packaging. Coca-Cola's Simply Orange and Minute Maid orange juice brands also use slight packaging variations. You have to read the label to get what you are getting exactly. Same with many other products you would typically find in a supermarket...packaging so similar that you need to read the label...hard to do if you're in a hurry.
Venice09 on 03/28/2011:
Nerd, Trop OJ is a perfect example. There are so many flavors and varieties that it's very easy to pick up the wrong one because the packaging is very similar. Trop 50 is the only one that looks a little different. I think the carton is shaped differently. Tropicana has more flavors and varieties of OJ than any other brand. It's definitely confusing.
Venice09 on 03/28/2011:
I think it's a pity that stores have to ban cell phones just because people have no regard for their fellow shoppers or the employees. Why do responsible people always have to pay the price for the bad apples?
Starlord on 03/29/2011:
How does your trying to shop on a dead run translate to a problem for Pepsi? I have my own battle with Pepsi going right now over their discontinuing Pepsi One. The Coke line-up doesn't look too enticing either, and Diet RC is a hard thing to locate. We need more soft drinks (I ain't getting into that pop/soda debacle) sweetened with sucralose (Splenda). I am positive my wife and I are not the only US citizens sensitive to asparatame. I have put Pepsi on notice, they cancel the discontinuing of Pepsi One, or they lose a customer of some 40 years standing.
Neil Hallare on 08/03/2012:
Many are complaining about the scarcity of Pepsi-One. Why do you think Peopsi is NOT listening? I'm losing my loyalty to this company. Pepsi: bring back your Pepsi One for crying out loud!

Why would you stop providing Pepsi one to your loyal customers in Texas? Now what? Pepsi max sucks!!!!! I guess I have too try Coke products again. The coke people did this to me when they stopped selling New Coke years ago and then I started drinking Pepsi and loved it. Then to lose weight I tried Pepsi one and been drinking them ever since. This really sucks to have my favorite drink taken away without any kind of good reason!!

Put it back on the shelves of our stores! It sells, cause the stores I'd buy from always ran out!!!

Diet soda will not help you lose weight. One can of soda a day can pack on 10 pounds a year, diet soda included. Carbonation makes your stomach expand. If you want to lose weight, then drink water.

Carbonation does not make your stomach expand. Diet soda can make you gain weight because the aspartame may increase cravings for sugar and lead to over eating.

Pepsi One sales aren't what the marketers anticipated it to be, so they are discontinuing it. While there may be a few remote areas such as the OP's shopping locations that keep it moving off the shelves, that isn't sufficient enough sales to carry the brand nationwide.
CrystalSword on 03/12/2011:
Pepsi ONE is fantastic, and becoming harder and harder to find, and its never on sale here. All the other Pepsi products are on sale but rarely if ever does that include Pepsi ONE....plus its the only soft drink I can handle that isn't full of either sugar or aspartame, the aspartame gives me a raging headache.
Starlord on 03/12/2011:
Aspartame gives both of us raging headaches. Safeway has specials on Pepsi products, hen you see the small lettering that says selected varieties. Pepsi One is never a selected variety. If Pepsi says the sles hav beenlow as a eason for discontinuing it, how the blue Susie do they expect to sell a lot of it if the stores don' have enough of it. They can't sell what they don't have, andconersey, we can't buy it if the store doesn't have any. Pepsi Oneis the ONLY Pepsi product we can drink. All ofthe Pepsi products contain either high fructose corn syrup or aspartame, except Throwback, which has cane sugar. Between my diabees and our hadache response to aspartame, we are screwed.
Venice09 on 03/12/2011:
I don't think diet soda makes you gain weight. I'm not a big soda drinker, but a diet soda can stop my craving for something sweet. What it really does is make me want something salty! And I don't even like salt.
Anonymous on 03/12/2011:
I also enjoy pepsi one. I like Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, but Pepsi one as a slightly different taste which I enjoy. It will definitely be a shame if they discontinue it completely. I really like diet wild cherry pepsi and diet cherry coke but that's also very hard to find anywhere. when I was younger I could down a 6 pack of regular coke in a day. After gaining a lot of weight I changed my lifestyle. I can't even FINISH a whole can of regular soda, its just WAY to sweet! They put like 13 tablespoons of sugar per CAN! Ridiculous! And they wonder why America is full of obese and diabetes.

I'm also not a big fan of just plain water. As much as I know it is good for me, I just don't like it. I've come up with a compromise where I drink Crystal Light, well wal mart's version of it since its cheaper. No caffine, no calories and tastes good.

Prince, even the crystal Light would be fine as an alternative for us...but, alas, it contains ASPARTAME.

Marci on 04/09/2012:
I am not worried about the pros and cons of aspartame and Splenda--I simply LIKE the taste of Pepsi One. To me, it tastes better than Diet Coke, regular Coke, regular Pepsi, or Diet Pepsi. I am really annoyed that it's being discontinued.
Jerry on 10/17/2012:
Have you noticed the 24 pack of pepsi one says one calorie per can, but the can now says "0" calories. they took out 100% of the calories but the price is still the same!

Pepsi Stuff Promotion Ripoff
Posted by on
You know, maybe I'm just stupid. I guess that's the case, because I honestly don't remember seeing anywhere where it said that the Pepsi Stuff promotion ended on December 31, 2008. Oh, I believe it was out there...in tiny little writing so small that an ant with bifocals would have a hard time reading it. But answer me this...if the promo is over, why is there still product EVERYWHERE (like Walmart, for instance) that still contains the caps?

Okay, forget that though...my bad. My stupid, my didn't read the fine print.

But what REALLY irks, irritates, and just plain pisses me off is that THEY TOOK THE POINTS I HAD BANKED WITH AMAZON!!!!!!!!!!!! How is this cool? How does this endear Pepsi drinkers to the company, I ask you?

See, I've been a loyal Diet Pepsi drinker for a long time. And with this Pepsi Stuff promotion, I was lovin' it even more, because unlike other cola company promotions, you only had to have 5 Pepsi Stuff points to download an MP3 from Amazon. And they had some GREAT music! Walmart would have other brands on sale and Diet Pepsi would be full price and I would STILL pass right by the sale stuff to get the Diet Pepsi, because of the Pepsi Stuff promotion. I would build up a couple of cups full of bottle caps, then one day when I had a free minute, I would enter all the codes at once and then, once again as I had time, I would peruse the available music and download it to my Moto Q. And then drink more Diet Pepsi.

I don't even remember how many points I had built up with Amazon, but it was a lot. A LOT. Most companies, when a promotion ends, give you a grace period to redeem your whatever for available prizes. Apparently Pepsi, in their infinite wisdom, are not one of those companies. I called the 800 number listed on the cap (1-800-462-9900) and spoke with a representative there, who in a very bored voice said "Yes ma'am, the promotion is over and your points are gone. Can I help you with anything else?". I refrained from telling her just where she could stick a 2-litre. After all, she's just a drone in a call center. The real people responsible for ripping me off don't answer the phone. If they did, maybe they'd understand where their stupidity lies.

Because see, I'm a "fool me once" kind of girl. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. And, to quote a previous president, I don't get fooled again.

So Pepsi, you took my points and you lost a good customer. I'll bet I spent several thousand dollars on your product over the last year, between me, my husband, and the business I work for. But the cooler at work stocks Coke and Dr. Pepper just as well as Pepsi and Diet Pepsi, and customers will buy it just as quickly. And *I* make the decision as to what gets stocked in the cooler. As a matter of fact, after I finish this "rant", I'm going to go and put up a sale tag on the cooler, all Pepsi products buy one get one free, just to get them out of the store. Then, I have a shopping trip lined up anyway to buy stuff for the store, well, I'll just ad an additional item..."Coke products for store drink cooler".

I know my measly few thousand is just a drop in the bucket to Pepsi, but if I'm pissed off I'm sure there are a bunch of other people that are too. And eventually that little drop becomes a bucket full, and then a little creek, and then a river, and then an ocean - an ocean of Pepsi products rotting on store shelves. Lots of other big names have gone the way of the carrier pigeon in my lifetime...MCI, Goodys, Enron, etc. Don't think just because you're Pepsi that you'll always be around....

Nohandle on 02/02/2009:
Carolina, I wonder if the Pepsi Promo you're speaking of is anything like the Coke Promo...Save the bottle caps and/or the code printed on the inside of of the six and twelve packs of the canned drinks. I knew nothing of any promotion with Coke but a co-worker explained he had signed up and had been keying in the codes for a good long while. He had received a few nice things, at no charge, but decided to save up his unused points for, I believe a TV.

Anyway, he was notified or read somewhere the Promo was about to expire so he selected whatever he could with the points he had earned. Once he had used all he could he learned the Coke Promo had been extended. He wasn't too pleased at the time.
Carolinadancer on 02/02/2009:
No, if you go to the website www.pepsistuff.com, you can get either a wallpaper with a coupon or a pdf mail-in form to get coupons. And like I said, when I called them the CS person said it was over and my points were gone, roll credits. But thanks for the info...I do have a few Coke points as well, but nowhere near what I did in Pepsi Stuff points.
Nohandle on 02/02/2009:
Carolina, do what the employee does with the Coke Promo. Everyone in the office brings in his bottle caps and empty 6/12 pack containers and gives them to him. I think there's a limit per day as to how may can be keyed in and I expect that's what he's doing right now. LOL. Sorry you missed it with Pepsi, perhaps there's still an opportunity with Coke.
MRM on 02/02/2009:
The Coke Reward is still going on and there is a limit of 10 codes per day. At my job, we have coolers to fill up with Dasani water bottles and on the cartons the codes are worth 10 points and I will be collecting as much as 20 cartons a day. You can imagine how many points I can racked up in a month! Currently, I have racked up 15,000 points in 4 months! You can get a 19' LCD with that many points.
trp2hevn on 02/03/2009:
Got my Coke Rewards e-mail this morning...Starting on February 16th, there's something refreshingly new at My Coke Rewards. The 10 code entries-per-day limit is gone. Now you can enter your codes when you want — up to 120 points per week. Also, starting 2/17 we're going to keep all rewards under 2000 points to make sure that you get rewarded quickly and easily. But before the 2000+ point rewards go away, from 2/10-2/16 you'll be able to get some new, exclusive limited-time rewards for 2000 points and greater.
I still like Mountain Dew better!

ATWATER, CALIFORNIA -- I have been a loyal pepsi drinker for nearly 50 years now. Since I never acquired a taste for coffee, pepsi is my morning coffee. In fact, it's my coffee all day long, as there is always a pepsi by my side.

It's no big deal to come across a defective can with flat pepsi inside now and then, but lately, there has been so many that it prompted me to write in about it. To my surprise, I've noticed and read several other folks saying basically the same thing.

We know our pepsi, right folks? Us die hard pepsi fans can take the blind test against the competitor and choose our pepsi every time. Well, until lately anyway. I sure wouldn't choose these recent ones as pepsi at all.

So, what's going on at the Pepsi Company ya'll? I'm sure we all would appreciate hearing your explanation about this, and why they even made it to the store shelves. It wasn't found just in my neighborhood, we found the same problem in the next county while visiting relatives. From these other complaints, seems it's all across the u.s. How did all that bad pepsi get missed?

Then, it would be really nice if you showed how much you value and appreciate your loyal customers, by compensating them for spending their hard earned money on so many bad cans of soda, a product they've trusted and enjoyed for so many years.

We all are feeling the squeeze from our economy these days, and it doesn't help to be pouring money down the drain, literally! Then to quickly find something to get that awful taste out of our mouth. It's SO yucky!

Come on Pepsi corporate people, show the world what a great company you are. Led by example and show how a major company can, and will, do right by those who made them successful in the first place.

Make us Pepsi People Proud.

Have you contacted Pepsi about your complaint?

Drinking soda for 50 years throughout the day prompts a few questions. Do you still have your teeth? Do you have Type 2 Diabetes? Are you overweight?

Being an occasional Pepsi drinker I haven't experienced this problem. Perhaps it's not that the Pepsi is flat it could be that you are getting morbidly ____.
Try an unsweetened tea or a power drink.

pepsi is too sweet and syrupy.

50 years with a Pepsi always by your side... wow
Ponie on 10/24/2008:
Drinking something else or questioning the poster's health doesn't solve the problem. Ya' know, you can die from drinking too much water. 'Tis so! I almost fell off the bar stool reading that story and watching it being aired on TV.

Pepsi-holic, your last statement sounds like a campaign slogan. :)

I once got some flat Pepsi, but it was my own fault. I picked up four 24 oz. 6-pks without checking the 'use by' date, which was about five months prior. Took it back to Kroger, along with my receipt, and they replaced it.

I'm not a big fan of pepsi. I like coke or dr. pepper. It's more bubbly.
Mrs. V on 10/24/2008:
I really wish people would not pick on other people.

You don't know if this person is overweight (and, really, so what if they are) or has diabetes (again, so what, they may have had diabetes their whole life, as in born within) or has all of their teeth (or not or lost them in an auto accident, again, so what).

Please, people, think about someones feeling *before* you just type out anything that comes to your minds.

Thank you (off soap box, now)
TGT101 on 10/24/2008:
I prefer to drink water. It's cheaper and healthier.
Mrs. V on 10/24/2008:
That was my post, I believe, MrG ^_^

DebtorBasher on 10/24/2008:
It's POP...POP...POP...not SODA....JUST POP!

Anyway, give up the Poopie and drink Coke!
old fart on 10/24/2008:
Pepsi just tastes like flat Coke to me.... too sweet...
Starlord on 10/24/2008:
I also have been drinking Pepsi for about the same amount of years, as I am 62 years old. I think I can count on the fingers of one hand the times I have gotten a flat Pepsi and still be able to snap my fingers. Pepsi, coke, Dr. Pepper, 7-Up, they are all liquid candy, and intake of them should be controlled.
Ponie on 10/24/2008:
OF, now that's my main reason for being a Pepsi drinker as compared with Coke. (IMHO)It's the Coke that's too sweet. 'Course, I drink the diet Pepsi so there may be a difference in taste.

Right, TGT. After all, who wants 'sick' water? :)
music4life75 on 10/29/2008:
Coca-Cola number one soft drink for 8 years running!
DebtorBasher on 10/29/2008:
Coke has always been #1 to me! Hey... If you leave your Coke sit in a glass for 12 hours, then it will taste like Pepsi.

...oh...and it's POP...not soda...POP, Just POP!
Anonymous on 10/29/2008:
Holy crap! You'll drink Coke soda POP after its sat in a glass for 12 hours?
I've heard about the guy that turned water into wine, and now I've heard about the gal that turned Coke into Pepsi. My life is complete....
what is wrong wiith people on 06/22/2013:
it seems some people miss the point its not about how much someone weighs its about the quality of a product we have purchased with our hard earned cash. get it right people don't be so ignorant.

P1 is the best

MIAMI, FLORIDA -- Pepsi One is the best diet product I have ever tried. It has Splenda and the taste is not matched by any other diet soft drink. It is very important for PepsiCo to clarify what is the issue with some cancer produced in lab rats and related to the amount of certain ingredient in Pepsi One. This is a good product, but I need to hear the truth about the studies and consequences of drinking this product. I drink 3-4 cans a day !

There are people talking about a class suit against PepsiCo because of some label warning not used in California.

Please clarify.

I Get Disgusted/nauseus Whenever I See a Pepsi Commercial

ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Every time I see that disgusting excuse for a woman( Beyonce) doing a commercial for Pepsi, It makes me sick and disgusted. She is a nothing who just shakes what she was given. She disgusts me now as much as she did in her earlier years. Myself, my family and all my friends have seen that commercial so many times in sheer disgust that even looking at a bottle or can of Pepsi, we can no longer even drink it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have lost so so many customers as well as families, that you should truly care !! You need to use normal people, everyday people to promote a truly family recipe as well as a family drink. Normal people with normal family values so much more true to life, if you even care......Like a man like myself, my family members. I am in a wheelchair but that's life. My family is normal and just well taken care of and clean shaved. Think about it........

I'm a pretty normal guy and I don't have a problem watching Beyonce in a Pepsi commercial. Actually Pepsi's ads are pretty tame compared to the likes of Hardee's/Carl Jr's, or Go Daddy's older ads which I also don't have a problem with.

Chaparrita on 06/05/2013:
Using celebs in ads is a popular and effective way of advertising. Maybe Pepsi lost a few customers who don't like Beyonce, but I've bet they've gained even more customers who are fans of Beyonce. I don't like her music, but I think she's an amazing singer and dancer. And a heck of a lot classier than some of the female singers out there.

It's always been available in a bottle as well as a can in my area. What choices other than bottles were available to you and how long has it been unavailable in your area?
GenuineNerd on 06/18/2012:
Are you referring to glass bottles? Soda/pop has been available in plastic bottles for many years now...it's the "boutique" brands, as well as Mexican Coca-Cola, that come in glass. Glass bottles were pretty much phased out by the early 1990's, when the soft drink companies phased out the 16-ounce returnable bottle. And soft drinks do taste better in glass than in aluminum or plastic.
Cwazychicken on 06/18/2012:
I haven't seen pepsi in a glass bottle in at least 20 years. About the time when plastic took over lol.I do see coke sell in glass bottles but very tiny ones, the ones I am talking about were huge glass bottles *long and tall*..they were cool.

OREGON -- I would not of bought Pepsi "next" as I am a die-hard Diet Coke fan but my daughter loves it and bought some for our herself and I ran out of Diet Coke so because this is my source of caffiene I had one of hers LOVE it. This in my oponion is by far better than any other Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. I could without a doubt change but I am afaird if I start loving it you will take off the shelf as this on time release item. So Please keep making this product. My daughter and I would love it but I am not blind in thinking we are 2 people out of so so many but hope we are heard! Thank you, Kathy & Michelle DeRoo.

OP, I know EXACTLY what you mean! Happens to us all the time. We love a product, and bam, they take it away.

Great review. I'll have to check it out. I'm not much of a soda drinker, but we do keep Coke Zero in the house, and it tastes just like regular coke. I've just added Pepsi Next to my food shopping list.
Anonymous on 04/20/2012:
I tried Pepsi NEXT, its good but I don't think it will be a hit. The complaint I have about it is with the 4 different sweeteners it contains.
Starlord on 04/22/2012:
I must agree with Wally on this one. I can't figure out why the blue Susie you need HFCS, aapartame and sucralose and another sweetener in the same recipe. Normally, we are Pepsi One fans, as it is sweetened with Splenda (sucralose), but we both tasted the aspartame aftertaste, Crystal got the headache, but I escaped it this time. We will pass on Next.
ED on 07/04/2012:
I never thought I'd do this, but I just realized that after 50 years of drinking, I cannot go a day without a sip of Pepsi.

I have had many situations in restaurants where I specificaly ordered Pepsi, and was served your Competor's drink instead. On one occasion the server said "they're both the same". Can you imagine say hat to a severe Pepsi drinker????. I received a free dinner after I confronted the Manager advising that we consumers know the difference between Pepsi and C. LOL LOL When I ask for Pepsi I want Pepsi. Luv u

DebtorBasher on 07/04/2012:
I'm the same way with my Coca~Cola, Ed.
I HATE when I order a 'Coke' and they bring me a Poopsie without even telling me ... I send it back and tell them I didn't ordere Poopsie and of course, like you said, they say, 'It's the same'...We know our colas, don't try to tell us there's no difference!!!
