I have heard about the release of single serve glass bottles sometime in the future...called Pepsi Raw made with pure sugar...


is this anything any of you know anything about or was it just his wishful thinking.

Unless the price of cane sugar drops significantly, or the FDA bans HFCS, I don't see it happening.

it seems to me like something like this came out on a postcard within the last few months no longer than a year ago

Never going to happen. I agree. Look at all the Coke and DP rumors this past year.



it seems to me like something like this came out on a postcard within the last few months no longer than a year ago This was regular old HFCS Pepsi

I don't believe it, but the ingrediant listing does list some sucrose (sugar) in Pepsi. They are using a mix now, which is good news. Purhaps they will be the first to switch back to sugar.

They need a cane sugar Mountain Dew, I would be all over that. But they make their crummy lemon-lime with cane sugar instead :(
And of course theres 7-up, "all natural" with it's unnatural HFCS...

I read this too... I hope it isn't a "limited" product, as I love cane sugar Pepsi.

Pepsi Natural & Sierra Mist Essence - Spring 2007!

Is Pepsi Natural a ripoff of Coke Plus, and what is sierra mist essence? And that was a year ago, or was essence lemon squeeze?

Does Pepsi Raw taste any better than when it's cooked?

I can tell you that in the last Marketing Meeting about everything new for 2008 we were told it was put on hold so it won't likely be this year either. :( . (Although thats what they originally told us in '06)

Did they mention why Pepsi Raw was not being launched for approx another year?

Maybe Pepsi is decided to wait and see how strong the anti-HFCS movement gets or something. Or how the market for "natural" products develops. I want it today though, but for me it's about taste, not the purported health issues with HFCS. Sugar is just plain better!

I believe the sugar tarriffs end at the end of December. It will be interesting to see what happens with HFCS being so high in price now and sugar about to plunge.

Basically the way they made it sound was that they weren't releasing something they didn't feel had the right taste, etc. So it was still being worked on, and no release date was even mentioned so it may be a while.

Right taste? ooookkaaayyyy.....
I never had no problems with what AD Heusing's product. They must be trying more than just sucrose instead of fructose.

Pepsi Raw is the real deal... at least in the UK. No word on international:


http://www.bevreview.com/wp-content/image_pepsiraw1.jpg (http://www.bevreview.com/2008/02/13/coming-soon-pepsi-raw-uk/)

It looks like The Press Association has the main story:
Pepsi is the latest brand to launch a new "healthy" option.

Pepsi Raw is said to be made from natural ingredients and contain no artificial preservatives, colours, flavourings or sweeteners.

The calorie content of a 300ml bottle is 117 compared to 126 for normal Pepsi.

Pepsi Raw has only natural ingredients including apple extract, plain caramel colouring, coffee leaf, tartaric acid from grapes, gum arabic from acacia trees, cane sugar and sparkling water. It is paler in colour and less fizzy than other cola brands.

..."By launching Pepsi Raw in bars and clubs, we hope to engage with customers in a new way and are confident that they will enjoy its sophisticated cola taste."

Initially, Pepsi Raw will only be available in selected bars and clubs in seven cities - London, Manchester, Glasgow, Brighton, Birmingham, Leeds and Liverpool, although a wider roll-out is expected later in the year.Full story (http://ukpress.google.com/article/ALeqM5g7ufKNhEJ3eXd2DKHlgmrv73rsqQ)

Here is a link to another news article (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/food_and_drink/article3353671.ece)which includes a video of people tasting Pepsi Raw and regular Pepsi.

I'm not sure if I'm liking the description of it. Apple and coffee added to it? Less carbonation? Hmmm....
