New Pepsi True, First Taste
Introducing Pepsi True, the latest Pepsi recipe made with no artificial sweeteners. Pepsi True currently comes in 7.5 oz cans, clocking in at 60 calories. With no artificial sweeteners, the drink uses a combo of real sugar and stevia leaf extract… yup, no high fructose corn syrup here.
I found Pepsi True to be reminiscent of the original Pepsi flavor, but it’s very obvious that the HFCS is gone. There’s no caramel-sugary qualities to coat your mouth like a traditional soda (btw it’s got 30% less sugar than regular Pepsi). The result of this is a cleaner tasting Pepsi product. Also unlike most diet sodas, Pepsi True manages to keep that chemical taste away with the use of natural sweeteners.
What’s your interest level at with using natural sweeteners in soda? Do you avoid sodas that currently contain HFCS? Right now Pepsi True looks to only be available on Amazon, but keep an eye out for wider availability in the future.
