I recently tried the new 'Pepsi New' . I thought it tasted like diet Pepsi. I hate the taste of diet drinks, therefore; I did not like it. If they were going to remove 50 percent of the sugar, they should have done just that and left it alone. BY ADDING ASPARTAME, they made a big mistake. It tastes much sweeter than it did before.
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- I just purchased a Mountain Dew for the first time and when I opened it it smelled bad. I then had several people smell it and they also said the same. It is Feb. 07, 2012 and the expiration date on the bottle was Dec 26, 2011. This is nonsense.
I would just like to recommend that soft drink companies remove the potentially harmful preservatives like Sodium Benzoate and other Benzoates from their products so we can drink more than one can guilt free. I like to squeeze lime in my cola and I have read that Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) mixed with Benzoates forms a harmful compound called Benzene. In tiny amounts, it is not harmful but I want soda to be safe enough to drink all day long. :)
WEST HAVEN, CONNECTICUT -- I bought a 12 pack of Pepsi the other day and I brought it back.... I am a Pepsi drinker so I went to another store and it was the same thing. I saw a yellow dot on the cans which was never there before. What did they do to Pepsi to make it taste so terrible?
LIRA, UTAH -- You have done a lot of recent to increase the number of your soda products. More over your promotion activities in my country Uganda at the moment I can say, is ranking almost the best because people are winning more prizes and drinking a lot of your soda products and all these has contributed significantly to increase in your sales. You have even greatly improved the test of your drinks. I am among citizen who enjoy your drinks. However at the moment I am very much dismayed and stressed up when I got pieces of glass in a freshly opened Mirinda bottle, yet the bottle had no damage at all.
This incident has made me worried again of your products and the way your employees in the branch within my reach treated me after reporting was not pleasing at all. I needed to undergo a medical scan and other diagnosis to check whether the pieces of glass did not enter me. But being a poor person here I am only believing in my God but I think it's much better to report to you and the nearby authorities. Conclusively, I Urged Pepsi cola to quickly respond and close the gaps exhibited within the company.
AKRON, OHIO -- Ever since the company switched the bottle caps, I've had to go through a lot to get them open. I don't drink Pepsi often, but my parents do, so we always have bottles of it in the house. We buy packs of 20 oz bottles. Whenever I do feel like drinking some Pepsi, it takes forever to get the bottle caps off. They're shorter, smaller, and have more ridges, which always tear up the skin on the inside of my hand. Also, it takes a lot of strength to remove them. I've had to use pliers more than once to open a bottle of Pepsi. (: Thank you, and goodbye.
LEWISTON, IDAHO -- I purchased a case of Pepsi this month. Stored it in basement along with other cases of pop. Noticed liquid stuff all over the floor and carpet. Checked the cases of pop and one case of Pepsi had leaked all over floor. The code number is: 120170. There were no holes in the cans. The cans were sealed, but over half of the cans were empty and several other cans were less than half full. Somehow or another they exploded. I would like a coupon for another case of Pepsi to replace the one I have lost. It was a real mess to clean up. I notified a person from the Pepsi Co. and she completely ignored my email. Guess she was too important for this matter.
I hardly ever drink soda, but today I am trying to function on 3 hours of sleep. I need caffeine! Normally, I get a cup of coffee, but I took my coffee cup home over the weekend and forgot to take it back to work today. So off to the vending machine I go to purchase a bottle of Pepsi. I haven't had Pepsi from the bottle in a long time. I have on occasion gotten Pepsi from the fountain at a restaurant (I think soda tastes better from the fountain anyway).
I took a sip from the bottle and noticed it tasted flat. I double checked the label to make sure I hadn't chosen diet. I hadn't. I looked at the "drink by this date" area and it said it is good until Oct 17th. I've read a lot of complaints on here about flat Pepsi, and I now I feel their pain. I knew I should've done the Dew instead.
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE -- For three months we have been waiting on our retail account with Nashville Pepsi. Three times we have sent in our tax ID number. If we call and receive info this morning, we can call this afternoon and receive different information. Today, three different people stated they would look at the issues and return my call. No one has called and it is now after hours. What is going on with this company? Do you have enough business? Or do you not have time for small businesses? If this is the case, just say so instead of making empty promises. Your competitor has no problem providing service. What's your problem?
