Pepsi co Complaint - Where is the pepsi? - 24 pack pepsi

Review by Pepsi lover on 2010-07-06
I just returned from shopping at my local Air Force Base commissary where I have shopped for over 30 years and have always bought Pepsi. Today I was told I could nolonger buy 24 packs of Pepsi because they where nolonger carried and 12 packs are so expensive I would not but them. It seems that Pepsi Co. will not give the military the same deals that they give other stores like Walmart so our military has to pay more and charge more. Why would Pepsi be so anti military? Why would Pepsi hand over the military market to Coke? I have always bought Pepsi but not anymore. I will not change to coke but until Pepsi gets its head out of it's bottom and shows some respect for our military I will find something else to drink.

A little bit of an over reaction here? I prefer coke, but doubt seriously if Pepsi is anti military. Just buy two 12-packs and call it a day. They cannot stock every product every person wants can they?

And yes, after 21 years in the USAF, I too shop the Commissary

is it no longer carried because of Pepsi or because your Base Exchange chose to no longer carry it?

WalMart being the biggest retailer in the world probably buys more Pepsi than any other company, so they get a huge discount. Local commissaries just don't have the volume to warrant getting the same price. This is not anti-military, just pro-capitalism.

If the commissaries pushed the volume of pepsi that Walmart does, they could get the same deal that Walmart does. It's not an anti-military thing.

Yeah, this definitely shows how anti-military Pepsi is! They're also anti-God, haven't any of you heard how they refuse to put "In God We Trust" on the cans?!?

Why should Pepsi put "In God We Trust " on their cans, momsey? The cans are not US currency or coins. If you are referring to that ridiculous rumor that makes the rounds once in a while about that. You are talking about A can that Dr. Pepper had one year about 8 years ago. BTW, "In God We Trust" is NOT in the Constitution of the United States, nor the Declaration of Independence. No other manufacturer of goods emblazons their product with that sentence, either.

It's better than having communist red cans like Coke does.

Is this a known fact that Pepsi no longer supports the military or is this an assumption based on your anger that you no longer can purchase 24 packs?

LOL momsey!

If 24 packs are all you are willing to purchase, why not just go off base for it?

The PX is not the only place you could buy Pepsi. Obviously there's a supermarket or supercenter nearby where you could get it. However, I did hear that military PX/commissary stores don't charge state or local sales taxes-whether that's true I don't know offhand, but you still have to be military to shop at such a facility.
