Pepsi next, Not bad!
Posted by on 04/15/2012
Everywhere I go I see the new Pepsi next advertised. I was thinking it was another nasty diet drink. But, with all the hype I picked up a 2 liter to see what it was all about.

It actually tastes pretty good! its pretty much regular Pepsi with 60 percent less sugar. I was pleasantly surprised with the milder taste. I don't think I'll pick it up regularly but I do recommend to folks who like regular Pepsi.

Only thing I don't like is that they mix 4 sweeteners in it, Gives it a slight off taste.

Good info, Wally. I drink soda as well although I know I should cut down. I was thinking about trying this instead of diet pepsi/diet coke. I'll go ahead and give it a try now.

Pepsi NEXT is another new one we can't drink...it contains ASPARTAME, and we both get raging headaches from it.
Posted by Anonymous on 2012-04-15:
Fodaddy, it has a slight aftertaste not as bad as a diet soda. I don't think Pepsi NEXT is gonna be the next big thing. But its worth a try if your a soda enthusiast like me.

Posted by Anonymous on 2012-04-15:
I consider it the Frankenstein of sodas, because it contains 4 different sweeteners.
Posted by JISCal2 on 2012-04-15:
Four sweeteners? Dang!
Posted by Anonymous on 2012-04-15:
High fructose corn syrup as a sweetener, but also aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose.

lol addy change my compliment to informative. It
tastes good but I don't feel comfy drinking something with 4 different sweeteners in it.

Back to drinking my lovely Dew!!

Posted by GenuineNerd on 2012-04-15:
Had it once, only because a store was selling 20 ounce bottles of it for 99 cents. I'll stick with Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke. Pepsi Next reminds me of early-1970's diet sodas, which were made with a blend of sugar and saccharin. At the time, saccharin was the only artificial sweetener out there, since cyclamate was banned, and aspartame wouldn't hit the market until the early 1980's. Because saccharin had a bitter aftertaste, sugar was added.

LOL Wally! Do the Dew!

I always call it pop myself :D. I admit im a coke person though but i will drink pepsi every so often (i do say its better in fountain than in a bottle.)

I finally realized how bad cokes were when I quit drinking and adding booze to them.

All those added sweeteners = 60% less real sugar, 60% increased chemicals. Stay away from the Next, Wally.

Cans Were Leaking

When you took them back for replacement, what were you told?
Posted by Starlord on 2012-04-14:
I have noticed they are using lighter gauge aluminum cans, I imagine as a cost-cutting move. the cases get jostled in shipment and the slightly weaker cans get leaks. This is not peculiar to Pepsi, as there are only a small handfull of makers of the cans, who sell to major bottling companies according to the program, 'How'd They Make That?' The only problem is, it is almost impossible to find out the manufacturer of the cans. Complain to Pepsi, Coke or whoever has cans that you find leaks in and have them complain to the can makers.

Pepsi One is the only soda without aspartame
Posted by Terrygrace on 04/05/2012
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 dont know, it may contribute to some people but it certainly hasnt contributed to my family. The diet pepsi did not cause her breast cancer thats for sure. Most my family drink it and most of them do not have cancer.
Posted by BigAl on 2012-04-06:
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.
Posted by FoDaddy19 on 2012-04-06:
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.
Posted by dan gordon on 2012-04-06:
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.
Posted by madconsumer on 2012-04-06:
most of these artificial sweeteners gives me a headache, even from one little packet.

very helpful review!
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-04-06:
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.
Posted by Churro on 2012-04-06:
"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.

Posted by MRM on 2012-04-06:
Churro, I was going to state the same comment, but changed my mind.
Posted by lexophiliac on 2012-04-06:
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.
Posted by Kris10 on 2012-04-06:
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
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-04-06:
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 affect on my health. Each to his own.

The real problem is man, madc. Man cannot simply let things "be". Nature has provided the biosystems of earth with the perfect foods, but man, in his infinite arrogance, thinks he knows better than nature and has sought to pervert it, and has, to his own detriment.

Posted by Anonymous on 2012-04-06:
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.

Are eggs good or bad this week?

Drink enough water and that too can kill you.
Posted by Nohandle on 2012-04-07:
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.

Pepsi New/new Taste
Posted by Pepsijunkie on 03/30/2012
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 ASPARTANE, they made a big mistake. it tastes much sweeter than it did before.

Being a "Pepsi Junkie," as your name suggests, tells me Pepsi makes other products that you love. While this new product didn't work for you, count your blessings that you probably have another Pepsi product to return to.

While I don't - and won't ever - drink Pepsi, thank you for your quick review of this new Pepsi product. I'm sure other Pepsi lovers appreciate it.

Flat And Too Sweet With A Aftertaste
Posted by Marshalex2 on 03/25/2012
Couldn't wait to try the new Pepsi next. Should have got Coke. It's suppose to have less sugar, but this has a VERY sweet taste and no carbonation, and a diet drink after-taste. YUCK !!

We tried Pepsi Next the other day, and a look at the ingredients showed something interesting. IT contains HFCS, aspartame AND sucralose.. It had a definite aspartame aftertaste, and we both suffered headaches. It didn't seem to have very much carbonation,and usually, I have to shake it a few times and release carbon dioxide because it has too much.

I Bought a Mountain Dew and It Was Expired
Posted by Cmckean12108 on 02/07/2012
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.

This complaint should be made towards the store that sold you the expired product
Posted by Anonymous on 2012-02-08:
I remember getting a few expired Mountain Dews before. I contacted Pepsi and they sent coupon for a free 12 pack. Do let them know
Posted by Starlord on 2012-02-08:
The expiration dates on food and drink items are not carved in stone. the product doesn't just suddenly turn bad on the expiration date. You are talking about a time frame of maybe two weeks, and the Mountain Dew will not, or should not, go bad in that short a time span. My wife just completed training as a home care aide, and expiration dates were discussed. IMHO, Mountain Dew smells bad anyway, and tastes worse.
Posted by Venice09 on 2012-02-08:
I don't think soda goes bad. It just goes flat after the expiration date. But that doesn't mean there isn't something wrong with the Mt. Dew. There could be. Call the 800 number on the can and let the company know. You can also take it back to the store for a refund.

In most cases, expiration dates are guidelines. I've done some experimenting, and it takes a long time for most products to actually go bad. They might lose some flavor but they are still safe to consume.
Posted by Inat on 2012-02-08:
I would contact the store and Pepsi as they are usually responsible for product rotation, etc.

Sometimes expiration dates matter - I jsut got a jar of pickles from our pantry. They were sooo mushy and gross. I looked at the expiration date on the jar... April 2008 :) guess I need to rotate my own stock!
Posted by Slimjim on 2012-02-08:
I would check with the store first. They'll probably just exchange the bottle for a fresh one to make life easier for you. many times soda companies stock and maintain the shelves themselves within a store though. The retailer may ask you to take it up with Pepsi after all. I wouldn't consider that very helpful of them though when just giving you a new bottle wouldn't kill their margins.
Posted by clutzycook on 2012-02-08:
Venice, have you ever had expired soda? I once drank some Pepsi that had expired 2 years earlier? It still had fizz, but it tasted like mud. Probably wouldn't make you ill like expired milk, but it sure doesn't taste good!

Clutzy, I've had expired diet soda, but not by two years. Maybe that will be my next experiment.

Harmful Soda preservatives
Posted by Turkeyfootgameaddict on 01/30/2012
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. :)

It is interesting that you bring this up and mention Dew. A friend of mine drank two 2-liter bottles of Dew a day for years, and wound up with liver damage.

Sodium benzoate performs an important function in soda - maybe they could find a substitute. But I'm not sure soda could ever be made so that you could drink it all day - too much of a good thing, you know.

Posted by ChuhBaca on 2012-01-31:
I saw that article. I lost a lot of weight after high school and one of my strategies was to not drink anything that had calories. It carried over to a habit now and I think I'm a healthier person for it. Once in a while, though, I just have to have a Coke.

I find that Yahoo article interesting in that the engineered ingredients have only been in place since the 90's? Given that, it would seem that the soda companies could go back to making a less harmful product, but it probably isn't good for their profits.

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.

The primary reason that Pepsi tastes terrible is that it's chemical composition tends to decay at a much faster rate than other competitors. Let's take a quick look at its root ingredients:

Quality of your products
Posted by Devpcot97 on 12/05/2011
LIRA, UTAH -- You have done a lot of recent to increase the number of your sada products. more over your promotion activities in my country Uganda at the moment I can say, is ranking almost the best because people are wining more prizes and drinking a lot of your soda products and all these has contrbuted significantly to increase in your sales. you have even greatly imporoved the test of your drinks. I am among citizen who enjoy your drinks. However at the moment I am very much dimayed and stressed up when I got pieces of glass in a fresly opened Mirinda bottle, yet the bottle had no damage at all. This incident has made me warried again of your products and the way your employees in the branch within my reach trated me after reporting was not pleasing at all.

I needed to undego a medical scan and other diognosis to check wheather the pieces of glass did not enter me. But being a poor person here I am only beliving in my God but I think its much better to report to you and the near by authorities.

Conclussively, I Urged Pepsi cola to quikly respond and close the gaps exhibited within the campany
