    I hear Pepsi is adding a new low carb, sugar free cola this summer called Pepsi Edge. They are going to use splenda and corn syrup. Anyone have more info on this cola? Personally, I am not a big fan of artificial sweeteners!

    I believe that the whole low/no carb craz has less than another year on its shelf life.

    Everything should be taken in moderation. Especially SUM people.

    Pepsi Edge won't be a Diet soda, (its definately got sugar in it)

    Splenda is actually made from Sugar so it may be quite tasty after all. One good thing is this will be the first Pepsi Lower calorie NOT to have Aspertame in it!

    I am looking forward to this too. But like I said in another post, they could have used a different name. But it's not a big deal. Hopefully this will last longer than Pepsi One or Pepsi Blue. Yes finally one of the big 2 brands are using Splenda!

    Anyone wanna go out on a limb and figure out what Pepsi ripped off for this product? (Think about it a minute)

    Pepsi XL? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Just kidding, Terry. If you mean the Splenda part it's obviously Diet Rite, but I think that's where all diet sodas are heading. It's not unlike the big switch to aspartame. That damn Nutrasweet swirl was on everything.

    Pepsi one did not work why would Pepsi 60 work?
    Using a great product like Splenda and still mixing in HFCS??? I guess its a start, the best thing to do would be drop the word Edge and make it Pepsi. Who needs more HFCS anyway?????

    I agree all companies will eventually use Splenda. I remember NutraSweet was out a few years before any of the 2 big names started to use them.

    If I remember correctly diet pepsi used NutraSweet first and diet Coke was still using sacharin.

    What was Pepsi Free?? Was it a caffeine free bev?? Or did it have a sugar substitute? I can't remember, it has been a long time!

    Yeah, Pepsi Free was caffeine free Pepsi. Pepsi XL was a reduced calorie soda for the mid-90's that was about half sugar and half aspartame. I don't think it ever went national though.


    "You gonna order something, kid?"
    "Ah, yeah... Give me a Tab."
    "Tab? I can't give you a tab unless you order something."
    "Alright, give me a Pepsi Free."
    "You want a Pepsi, Pal, you're gonna pay for it."
