OREGON -- Is it just me, or is there a problem with the packaging process at the Pepsi distributor for Costco in Portland, OR? We've been purchasing Pepsi products for many months from Costco without any issues, but now, THREE times in four months we have purchased 36-packs of Pepsi from Costco and like always put them in our firm's kitchen cupboard only to notice weeks later some leakage in the cupboard, with many of the soda packs (including the affected one) soaked with dark sticky soda.
Upon inspection, it turned out that several cans of Pepsi were EMPTY, right there inside the UNOPENED case, having slowly leaked the contents through super-tiny pinhole puncture(s) along the bottom rim of the can! It looks like there was some roughing up going on in the packaging process, possibly by faulty machinery. The leaks are slow enough to be undetected at the time of packaging and even purchase until they've been sitting for weeks, which is a FAIL for the consumer.
I have cleaned up huge, sticky spills in our kitchen three times because of this, and so I am hoping the Pepsi corporation takes notice and looks into all packaging facilities in the Northwest, especially the Portland area, to find out what is causing this mess! HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM? Why does it seem to only happen to Pepsi cans?
So trying to get off the bottle cap on these Pepsi 20 oz bottles (today's was an Aquafina) really hurts my hand and I still can't get the cap off. I was able to break the seal pretty cleanly using scissors at my desk. I'm at work so I don't have access to more sophisticated tools like bottle openers. After breaking the seal I still can't get the stupid cap off. Ever since Pepsi made their bottle caps smaller this has been a problem. I realize that we're probably saving plastic with the smaller caps, but I can't get the bottle open so it sort of defeats the purpose.
It's really frustrating. Can someone working for Pepsi please make it possible to open the stupid 20 oz bottles again? I just wasted a $1.25 on this bottle that I can find no way to get open after further adventures with the scissors. I'm really annoyed (and thirsty). Thanks. Edit: Actually upon further thought I think this problem may be more specific to the Aquafina bottles. I don't think I've ever had this much difficulty with the Diet Pepsi bottles.
Unfortunately Pepsi Cola allowed some very violent commercials to be produced and presented during the Super Bowl. I am an Early Childhood Educator and enjoy watching football games as well as discussing them with the children. It is my understanding the Pepsi allowed the viewers to create the commercials, who apparently have no regard for the content, violence presented or the inappropriate material presented: an abusive, jealous wife, a bully who gets hit in private parts by a can of pop.
These commercials were not only offensive, but did nothing to enhance your product. Think someone spent some big bucks for nothing but smut. Hope your sales decrease. Actually will boycott your products for the time being for the "bad taste" in your commercial presentations.
To whom it may concern, my family has always been avid Pepsi drinkers here in Florida and Michigan. But for the last 2 months when I have bought Pepsi from two local party store which has the same delivery truck (which I have seen the same driver deliver at both party store on the same day) they have all been out dated. I know that these party stores go through a lot of Pepsi. SO the Pepsi driver is not checking to see if the product is out of date before he delivers it to the stores. When I took the Pepsi's back to the party stores and was told to exchange it it was found out to be that all the Pepsi that was delivered to that store was out of date, and with each time I have had to get Coke cola instead.
Now I am not going to tell you that that Coke was not good because it was, especially after all the hassle of buying, returning, and returning again. If you do not do something out of this world to keep me and my WHOLE family and I am not talking about 4-6 people, more like 26-35 people, we will switch to another soft drink. If this is what you want then ignore this review. Thank you.
I am an avid drinker of diet Pepsi & consume about 2 cans a day. I opened up a 24 pack of diet Pepsi to put in my refrigerator. On the top layer the normal 12 cans but on the bottom there was just 11 cans. This is just a small complaint & the weight of the carton is not affected by the lack of one can & probably a consumer would not notice 2 cans missing from the carton. Anything over 2 cans would most likely effect the weight & the consumer would notice. I wonder why this happened & if I can expect more of this in the future.
BAY CITY, MICHIGAN -- I have been buying Cherry Pepsi for years, since it came out. I drink more than 24 cans a week, and what upsets me is you don't make it in 24 packs, because when they run specials on the 24 packs (which is quite often) the cherry Pepsi is not included. And when you buy the 12 packs the cherry Pepsi is the same price as the other Pepsi products. So I think since you do not offer the Cherry Pepsi in the 24 packs, when the 24 pack Pepsi products are on sale, you should offer two 12 packs for the sale price. I buy it every week just like people that buy other Pepsi products and should be given the sale price on the 24 packs like the other Pepsi Products users do.
I have drunken Pepsi since the 80's and love the taste but recently I noticed the caps are smaller and harder to remove and also the same complaint of the sticky bottles. Seems like Pepsi has gone cheap and decided to make the caps smaller and in the process obviously creating some leaks in the process. Smarten up Pepsi and pay a little more for the proper lid. I buy your product because it is a good product. If you don't change the cap back I am afraid you will lose some good customers and they are the ones paying your CEO's paychecks too.
I am legally blind and diabetic. When I go to the store I ride a cart and can see enough to pick out my own groceries. I bought what I thought was 3, 12 packs of Diet Sierra Mist. After I got home after consuming 3 cans, I realized my sugar level was spiking. I couldn't figure it out until my friend Tom who had shopped with me noticed there was no "Diet" on the boxes or cans. The colors appear identical and with my limited vision, the word diet is way to small (I had some empty cases in the back room to compare to). Pepsi Diet caffeine free is a white case, regular is blue. This makes sense.
You need to change the Sierra Mist labeling immediately. I could have died had we not caught this in time. I can't taste the difference. As it is my blood sugar went up over 600 for a short time until the extra insulin I took kicked in. Please try and resolve this. Thank you.
I have had a lot of trouble with flat, strange tasting Pepsi also. I've gotten at least 12 cans in the past 6 months. I've also found empty cans in my cases too. I heard from a reliable source that a lot of the Pepsi ingredient is made overseas and then shipped to America. I heard it was in Asia, where we tend to get products that are unfit for human consumption.
Is that the problem with the taste and the flatness? How safe is the water they use over there? Is our American jobs over there? Are the Asians making most of the Pepsi? I am not against the Asians, but I am against Pepsi Cola charging us a fortune for a product that's mostly made overseas and the quality has gone downhill.
While the bottles are easier to hold and fit better in the refrigerator, I could not help but notice that the bottles have gotten smaller. The price unfortunately did not decrease proportionally. For a person that drinks as much Pepsi in the course of the day as I do it was a real blow to my wallet. I finish a 6 pack in under three hours. My work day is 8 hours so now I have to have 2 6 packs just to get through work. This does not even touch the surface of what I need to get the rest of the evening and night. I understand that we are all facing hard economic times but I would appreciate either having the price reduced or the bottle sizes restored to the original size.
