Pepsi Next Review

I am a BzzAgent. I signed up for free several years ago, and now get free samples of products to try and review. I usually get a sample of the product or a coupon for a free item and coupons to share. (For more info on BzzAgent, check out my Freebies For Adults post.)

This week, I received my bee covered box for Pepsi Next. It's supposed to have 60% less sugar than regular Pepsi. Inside my box was a can of Pepsi Next, a coupon for a free 2 liter of Pepsi Next, $0.50 off coupons to share, and a pen (Woo-hoo! I am a pen freak. I love pens, especially ones with a comfy grip. I know..I'm a little weird).

It seems to be a mix between regular and diet soda. Diet soda of course has 0 calories, 0 carbs, 0 sugar. Regular soda...not so much. Pepsi Next has 60 calories, 16g carbs, 15 g sugar. It has high fructose corn syrup and aspartame listed under the ingredients. It tastes smoother than diet soda, although I did notice an extremely slight bite like a diet soda. (I probably wouldn't even notice it except I was concentrating on the taste to review it.) After trying it, I would be willing to buy it again for special occasions like parties. However, I probably would not drink it every day due to the aspartame. I have been trying to steer away from products with aspartame in the ingredients due to some of the long term health concerns that have been linked to the artificial sweetener.

These are just my opinions. I receive free samples from BuzzAgent, but am in no way compensated otherwise.
