Pepsi Next - Product Talk By Nuffnang

When it comes to hot, sticky summer days, I tend to always crave a icy cold drink that can quench my thirst and gives me a sugar rush to continue through out the day. So you could only imagine how excited I was when Nuffnang offered me the opportunity to take part of "Product Talk by Nuffnang" to try / review the new Pepsi Next. 

Love making new memories through out  Summer as its a great to spend time with the family and friends, enjoying the outsides and beach drives. This Summer my partner, few friends and I had packed the car up and headed down to our local Waterfall / River and enjoyed the bush walk, BBQ and later cooled down with some Pepsi Next.





What is Pepsi Next? 



Pepsi Next (please make sure it is not confused with Pepsi or Pepsi Max) is a great tasting and “relatively better for you" cola, as it contains NATURALLY LESS SUGAR than regular colas. It contains 30% less sugar but, most importantly, is sweetened naturally using Stevia (unlike other Pepsis that are sweetened with aspartame). Pepsi Next brings all different sorts of sweetness. Pepsi Next isn't sickly sweet like any other cola drinks. 

As for the taste test, at the very first sip it tastes just like any other Pepsi cola drinks but then after a couple more, you could sense the taste was lighter than the regular Pepsi and You could definitely recognise the artificial sweetener taste as well. The color for the Pepsi Next looked exactly the same as your regular Pepsi and same as the texture. 



The ingredients for this New Pepsi Next include:  Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Natural Flavor, Phosphoric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Caffeine, Potassium Sorbate (Preserves Freshness), Aspartame, Citric Acid, Acesulfame Potassium and Cucralose. Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine. It also contains 60 calories, 60mg of sodium, 15g of sugar and 43mg of caffeine.

Pepsi Next tastes so good that Pepsi are inviting people from around Australia to take part in a blind taste test of naturally less sugar Pepsi Next vs full sugar Coca Cola to see which taste they prefer. Don't forget to check out their facebook page to see where you can take part.
