  • Passover Pepsi 2007

    How come no one is excited about Pepsi made for Passover? I found 2 liter bottles in Target today, first time I've seen Pepsi in years. It was on an endcap with 2 liter Passover Coke. The cap was white and the wrap was design 005 with HFCS listed as the sweetener.
    Whatcha gonna do mama now that the roast beef is gone?

    Are you sure you found KP Pepsi? All of the bottles I've found this year only list Sugar as the sweetener. I would think the label would have to at least say and/or to be legally correct. The Chicago KP Pepsi has a blue cap with the CRC logo on top.

      If it was made with HFCS then it was NOT Kosher for Passover!

        The end cap display sign said "for Passover" and the symbol on the Pepsi cap was similiar to the symbol on the Passover Coke cap displayed on the shelf below. All other Pepsi caps in the beverage aisle were blue and had a different bottler code than the white cap Pepsi. For some reason even the Diet Pepsi in the display had white bottle caps.

          The cap should have a “KP” on it. The regular Pepsi sold the rest of the year will just have a “K”

            also, maybe I'm mis-remembering, but I thought that Diet Pepsi couldn't be Kosher because of one of the anti-freezing agents it contains ?
            Give me some cane sugar real Pepsi in a glass bottle... and not Throwback!

                Giant Markets in Broome County, NY are advertising Diet Coke 2 liters "Kosher for Passover".

                  There is nothing in diet soda that would prohibit it from being kosher or kosher for Passover.

                    I believe you are talking about the Diet Pepsi slurpie that is kosher, but it is dairy due to one of the anti-freezing agents

                      Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but isn't there also the issue of the Rabbinical blessing having to be performed on the machinery after it is properly cleaned of all HFCS product before any Kosher for Passover product begins production? If so, not all diet sodas can be KP automatically.

                        Fusion,
                        You are 100% correct.
                        Yes, all diet soda pop is not KP.

                          It’s not about a blessing; the rabbis are observing the cleaning and the ingredients.
                          While the rabbis do pray when they perform these tasks they are not blessing the equipment.
                          Ultra orthodox Jews pray almost constantly. They pray before they wash there hands, while they are washing their hands, before they eat and after they eat. Before they have sex with their wives and after. The prayers are never ending.
                          So no they are not blessing the machinery they are observing that it is kosher and thanking G-D for the opportunity of overseeing the processes.
                          The blessing comes from G-D for having made the mitzvah of observing and certifying the kashrut.

                            As most of you know I’m a Pepsi drinker and while Coke will do in a pinch it’s not my drug of choice.

                            This Passover season I’ve had a hard time finding reasonable sales on 2 liter Pepsi, most of the time it’s not much of a sale at all. I’ve been seeing from four bottles for $5.00 to $1.59 a bottle (as if that’s a real sale). Most all of the stores I patronize have some KP Pepsi even if it is a high price.

                            When the new supermarket circulars came I scanned them for Pepsi sales as I always do. Only one store had a good price on 2 liter Pepsi. That was the A&P supermarket in Brick NJ. We hadn’t planed on shopping at A&P this week but the price was 10 for $10.00 so I had to check it out. There are a lot of Jews in Brick and even though I’ve not been able to find KP Pepsi in that store in previous years my hopes were high.

                            I went into the store while my wife and son stayed in the car. So I went in scanning for the tell tale white caps. There were cases and cases hundreds of bottles and not a single white cap to be found, not one. Out of curiosity I looked at the Coke section just to see if they had any KP Coke but there was not a single 2-liter bottle of regular Coke to be found. Not that I wanted it any way.

                            I left the store and got back in the car disappointed but not surprised, as this store was always a disappointment. They rarely have ample quantities of any thing that’s a good sale and their produce looks like it was picked out of a dumpster.
                            On our way to Path Mark supermarket we decided to stop at Big Lots as an after thought. Just to see what they had this week.

                            Low and behold they were running a sale on 2 liter Pepsi and to my astonishment it was all KP and at $1.00 a bottle to boot. I bought 10 bottles, as this was all my lovely wife would allow in one visit. I will be sure to find my way back this week to scoff up at least 10 more.

                            Path Mark did have KP Pepsi @ $1.59 a bottle, needless to say I didn’t buy any there.

                            I also noticed that they did not have a single bottle of 2 liter coke in the store even though they were fully stocked with only KP Coke just 5 days before.

                            I found the very same thing at the Shoprite in Lakewood NJ. Just days ago hundreds of bottles of KP Coke and no regular Coke, then 2 days ago 6 bottles of KP Coke on the shelf and that was it, no other 2 liter Coke in the store. It’s funny that 3 supermarkets would be completely out of 2 liter Coke at the same, two of the stores having huge quantities of KP just days before.

                            THANK YOU BIG LOTS.
