    Sounds like a step in the right direction.

    Now when they get to sweetening sodas with Stevia, that's the time I'll really stock up. I love Pepsi but am trying to quit it..must be something in it to make me addicted.

    And yes, I have heard that if you want to GAIN weight, drink diet sodas!!!!!! I believe the thinking behind this is that the artificial sweetener makes your body expect food, and when it isn't there, it makes you hungry to eat the food your body expects and now wants.

    I was glad to see it in my grocery and grabbed two 12oz bottles thinking "now this is the way Pepsi used to taste". Well if it is, I don't like it anymore....lol. It just doesn't taste right to me.

    My sister loves this Pepsi. It's not always easy to find, so the whole family knows to buy it for her when we see it.LOL

    Lol, I've also thought about this. There's also a Sonic commercial on TV saying their burgers are now made with real beef. What were they made of before?? :lol:

    This is off subject but about another use for corn. A little factoid about corn and ethinol. The amount of corn it takes to fill a gas tank one time with E-fuel can feed one person for a year. This doesn't seem rational to me. Corn should be for feeding people!

    Exactly. This is one of the many reasons Egypt had all those riots - the cost of food went up. Between corn being used for fuel and QE2, the price of food worldwide exploded, and third-world countries around the globe are feeling it. Very sad.

    In our area they have Pepsi, Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper made with sugar. Our local grocery store (HEB) also carries their own brand of sugar-sweetened sodas. I like them...they taste like the soda I drank as a kid!

    Has anyone tried it? Do you notice a difference?
    I've been buying it for over a year now when I can find it.....it DOES make Pepsi taste like the Pepsi we had years ago. :) :)
