Does Pepsi Natural Taste Good?


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I don’t drink much soda, to tell the truth. I won’t eat or drink anything that contains trans fats and/or artificial sweeteners. I’ve been this way for about ten years now, and that’s just the way it is. It’s not that I don’t like soda – I just don’t like all of the junk that they are loaded with. When I heard that Pepsi was coming out with a new product called Pepsi Natural… made with natural REAL sugar! I had to try it.

It doesn’t have High Fructose Corn Syrup, so it’s all good! I can give er the old college try! As soon as you uncap it, you definitely get the whole “cola” smell. You know what I’m talking about, right? Colas have a distinct smell. My first taste was – WOW! It’s really sweet tasting. Kudos to Pepsi, for coming up with something this yummy, that has no artificial sweeteners!

Did you know that those crappy artificial sweeteners can actually make you more hungry?! That is in addition to any health risks there may be (I’m not a member of the FDA, so I won’t even begin to go into any of that).

The nicest thing about this is that this is not only the first time I’ve had Pepsi in over a decade – but I’m doing so guilt-free. Yes, there is sugar. But it’s a natural sugar! It tastes great, too!
