Found some Pepsi Natural in Socal and had to give it a try. Pepsi Natural is sweetened with sugar, not high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Doesn’t quite taste like “normal” Pepsi. The coloring is a lighter shade of brown and translucent. The taste doesn’t feel syrupy and seems “cleaner.” Not bad, but worth the $1 per 12-oz bottle?
