Actually, Pepsi always used either Corn Syrup or HCFS, even outside of the US, except for during Passover. This will certainly be interesting, as I've been saying that doing this will be a great boots to their business by the health nuts.
Thus the point of the press release, right?
Nature sugar, i.e. cane, or some bleached crap???
I'm guessing cane sugar since that's about the only type I see used in soda any longer, but due to Pepsi's size, maybe they will just use table sugar.
Natural sugar from sugar beets using that chemical process to produce a sugar.
Cane Sugar, usually as cane syrup, is used by most companies that use sugar. Outside of that, it is cheaper to use natural sugar, not white sugar.
All the people boycotting the highly
unhealthy High-fructose corn syrup (often used as a cheap substitute for sugar in low end foods)
must be making a difference.
Pepsi Throwback? What's so special about it being any different from Pepsi Natural?
I was wondering that myself.
That's the one that's only out for a few weeks...
I guess someone at Pepsi had a look in the organic section of their grocery store and saw "organic cane juice" on some of the organic pops and a light bulb went off over their head.
But it looks like the bulb quickly dimmed, I mean how long will it take for dissenters to lable this stuff Pepsi Throw-up.
Dr. Pepper has the same thing here in Texas, and it is much better than the HFCS crap.
Dublin Dr. Pepper, correct?
Actually, reading more on Dublin, it does seem to be the same, only it isn't labeled Dublin like some are. Weird. Some of their cans say Dublin Dr. Pepper, and others just say Dr. Pepper and look like the one below.
Looks like a blend of sugar from cane and beet.
If it was pure cane, they would have advertised that and they aren't.
And some people talking to some Pepsi people said it was a mix -- though it shouldn't matter much anyhow and we all know how easy it is to get the whole story from the peons at a company.
They haven't always used it. Or at least, they started using HFCS sometime after 1983. According to my 85th anniversary commemrative can, made in 1983, the ingredients are: carbonated water, sugar, caramel color, phosphoric acid, caffeine, citric acid, and natural flavors. So, they switched sometime after 1983.
Oh, and by the way: Dublin Dr. Pepper rocks! I hard ordered online from them in the past. Last time I visited my brother in Dallas, however, I made the trip to Dublin to tour the bottling plant/musuem and to bootleg some Dublin Dr. Pepper back home. I brought home 2 cases and a "Dublin Dr. Pepper Bootlegger" TShirt.
Yeah, living only 45 min from Waco, they have it everywhere here.
It pops up every now in then down here near San Antonio. Good stuff.
What people always miss is that in order to use sugar in soda, you have to use more of it for equivalent sweetness. But I'll all for it, considering that HFCS is this decade's wolf-in-sheep's-clothing.
But, IIRC, the Dublin Dr. Pepper has less calories per serving than HFCS DP.
It must be Pepsi's return salvo for bottled Coke. It's weird, but here in CA bottled Coke has gained quite a following, and is quite oddly very popular merely by word-of-mouth advertising.
Does bottled Coke not have HFCS in it? I thought it did...
Want to mail me some??
I bet I'd be able to find some in one of those specialty soda shops. There's one not too far from me.
If I remember correctly, you can order it by mail directly from the bottler on their website... (Shipping was reasonable, as well.)
