    That's the way Pepsi is made here in Texas. I asked my store's Pepsi rep about it when they changed the logo last year. He said that Pepsi was trying to get more sales in the hispanic market, and Texas is now 47% hispanic. Pepsi is a distant third in the soda marketplace, behind Coke and Dr Pepper, so they're just trying to appeal to the booming hispanic population.

    Here's a bright idea, switch back to cane sugar and get the majority of the Hispanic market.

    Texas is not "47%" Hispanic. Anyway, recently arrived Hispanics in the USA, tend to favor Coke products by a very large margin, reflective of the major marketing lead that Coke has over Pepsi in Mexico, and throughout Latin America.

    This marketing gimmick is an attempt to catch up.
