Pepsi Next review
We found that little bottle on our grocery trip to Target so we forked over the $.80 for it and put off tasting it for a week. Finally I broke down and thought "maybe that high octane Pepsi taste is just waiting for you!" I cracked open the top and put the frosty rim to my lips...and smelled diet soda. That alone made me want to put it down but I didn't. I thought I could look past it. I took a drink. How does a higher calorie diet soda taste WORSE than a 1 calorie (or is it 0? I don't drink that crap) soda??? Seriously, I quietly put the cap back on and passed it to the Mr. who took a swig then another to confirm his dissatisfaction and put it down. It went down our disposal . $.40 per sip.
If you like diet Pepsi, you'd probably like this so I'm definitely not steering anyone away from trying it. But being a non-soda drinker 99% of the year, my palate is pretty open to new tastes. I really did try to keep an open mind too but when I can smell that diet smell before I even drink it, it's just not for me. When I see that commercial with the baby doing fantastic feats while the parents tape Pepsi Next because of how amazing it supposedly is, I shall likely point at the TV and shout 'liar!" (Liar referring to 'real cola taste')
Have you tried Pepsi Next? What did you think? What do you think of soda companies trying to change their formulas or coming up with new products with a similar taste to an already existing product?
