I agree! I have always been an avid Pepsi drinker, don't ask me why. I guess, I like the sweeter taste. Every since maybe 6 months ago, something has changed about the product. Something has changed so drastically that I have switched to coke (or Cherry Pepsi, but it's just not the same). Something to do with the carbonation of Pepsi. I used to be able to open an can and it would stay carbonated for at least a hour, but not anymore. Now, I open it, take one drink and the choice is either chug it or sip it, but if I sip it while I do what I am doing, half of it will go to waste. Pepsi goes flat within 20 minutes of it being opened, without carbonation, it tastes just nasty. Seriously, with today's economy I can not afford to drink Pepsi and have it go to waste like it does.
What has changed? Something has to have changed, it wasn't ever like this before. I think the Pepsi company is going to loose a lot of business unless they figure out something pretty quickly. I have been looking all over the internet for some sort of answer to this puzzle, but really there is nothing, at least nothing that makes much sense. I found this website: (http://www.garybeene.com/pepsi/pep-temp.htm) Although this wouldn't be the deciding factor as to why all of the sudden Pepsi only last one drink or two, it does give a little information (from some people that must have a lot of time on their hands) to what you might be able to do to prolong the life of your can of soda. I feel, in a way, that this information is absolutely ridiculous because, I have always drank my soda room temperature, something that is mentioned on the website is that you should drink it almost at freezing temperature. I don't like cold soda, the website mentioned that too. That people who always seem cold, do not enjoy cold soda. TruFax! Odd though, such a strange generalization, unless there really is some study out there about drinking soda?! Well anyways, I think the website, no matter how ridiculous it may sound, is a good read, interesting and even funny if you think about it.
Pepsi! I miss you. Please don't make me permanently switch to COKE! Bring back the carbonation! (Starts a riot with picketing and signs): "What ever floats your boat! Carbonation." "Bring back bubbles!"
