It can’t be coincidence people, it must be DESTINY! Just yesterday I was riffing on high-fructose corn syrup on the blog, and today there is an epic story released by AdAge regarding high-fructose corn syrup and its perception.
“Consumers are asking manufacturers to remove ingredients they believe are harmful, and high-fructose corn syrup is near the top of many a mother’s hit list. Some major manufacturers have responded by removing the offending syrup, and the Corn Refiners Association has staged a full-fledged media assault aimed at what it perceives to be ‘misinformation’ in the media” See the full post »
Yahoo News reporting on Coca-Cola and PepsiCo’s environmental impact on China: “among the top 12 factories causing major water pollution in China’s capital, the city government has announced.”
Both PepsiCo and Coca-Cola have been aggressively expanding into Asia, and apparently their presence is being felt on the environmental front. See the full post »
In the second of my non-alcoholic blog trifecta (cocaine isn’t alcohol people!), Pepsi is still trying to shoot down rumors that Pepsi released patriotic themed cans of cola after September 11. Ironically enough, I heard about this on Pepsi’s website, under the “false rumor alert” tab in the company section of the website. Does Pepsi have to refute so many rumors that is has a dedicated section of the website for it? Can I sign up for Pepsi “false rumor alert” RSS feed and get up to the minute false rumors delivered to my iPhone? Weirder yet, the rumors stem from as far back as 2001, yet for some reason are still being publicized on Pepsi’s site. See the full post »

I haven’t seen Pepsi Raw available for sale in the United States. As far as I know, it is only being sold in Europe, but I do hope it makes it over here soon. It’s basically everything you love about Pepsi, just with more awesome.
For starters, it is made from all natural ingredients, including cane sugar, apple extract, caramel color…you get the idea. It comes in a super futuristic bottle, and the website has spiffy recipes to point out the full potential of Pepsi Raw.
Consider this, the “Tequila and RAW”: No salt, no lime, just the distinctive taste of Tequila unmasked by Raw’s unique natural flavours. A slow drink to be savoured.
This stuff is for real, I just hope it survives the British gauntlet and makes it over here to the good ol’ US of A.
I can say with confidence that Crystal Pepsi is one of the main consumer products that defined my childhood (that, Ken Griffey Jr. Crunch Bars, and hypercolor shirts). In my childhood home of Waterville, Washington, summertime temps would get up around 110 degrees, so having a quenching beverage you could rely on was crucial, and at the tender age of ten, this palate was already becoming particular about what it wanted.
