Have any of you tried it? I heard it's made with real sugar and it tastes 100x better than the original Pepsi. Is this true, and do you think they should keep the new Pepsi? Keeping in mind that it hurts the corn industry.

I wasn't aware they were doing this. Is this sold as a separate product?

Pepsi what now?

From the context of your post I am guessing they have a version that uses real sugar rather then corn (maize) syrup. Though AFAIK this practise is mainly applied in northen america, perhaps Australia*. In Europe, atleast the Netherlands for certain, sugar is the what they use in cola.

So I guess I ain't missing out on anything. Carry. on. =p

*Or did the lable on those cola bottles (Pepsi, CC, ...) mention they didn't use corn syrup? I do know for sure it was in Australia - last year - that I first learned about using corn rather then sugar in northen america.

Is it actually better, or just better because you are expecting it to be better than the regular one made with Chinese industrial waste?

It is actually much better. If you ever drink Cola from Europe, or even Mexico and compare it to the one in North America there is a world of a difference. Occasionally, you can also buy "Kosher" Cola, which is very similar to the "Original" as well. Corn Syrup tastes like crap.

High-fructose corn syrup is what they use, and yes it takes away from the taste.

There's a complicated issue from a combination of sugar-tariffs and costs along with subsidies to American corn-growers that led to the rise of HFCS use in soda for the Americas.

Which led to an increase in diabetes.

I've still yet to see conclusive evidence of HFCS being that much worse for you physically then sugar is. Though I definitely agree it tastes worse. I really wish they would just make "throwback" the normal version. If Pepsi started using real sugar in their drinks they'd probably start to clobber Coke, maybe even force Coke to use sugar. Soft-drink companies have some of the highest profit margins by percent, and could certainly afford to take the hit, and a lot of it would be made up for in increased sales anyways.

If you really want to try something absolutely amazing, get some Dublin Dr. Pepper. God like... If you're in Texas you can find it in some middle-of-nowhere gas stations.
