If full-calorie soda dumps too much sugar into your system and diet drinks just don’t have the punch you want, Pepsi wants to woo you with its new 60 calorie-per-can offering, Pepsi Next. It’s been years since they’ve launched a major product, so perhaps the name “Tada!” would’ve been a fun choice. Just sayin’.
Cola drinkers in Wisconsin and Iowa have apparently given the thumbs up to Pepsi Next, the “mid-calorie” drink being test-marketed in the two states. PepsiCo plans to go national with the 60-calorie soft drink next spring.
Even though the news was leaked back in early April that (Pepsi would be trying out a mid-calorie cola called Pepsi Next), the company has only just now gotten around to confirming the drink’s existence, along with the fact that it will begin testing Pepsi Next in Iowa and Wisconsin starting next month.
In the never-ending battle to find a drink that will please both the calorie-conscious and those who crave some sugar in their sodas, Pepsi is once again prepped to go the mid-calorie route with something called Pepsi Next.
