Advantages: Never Get Tired Of It.
Disadvantages: Boring Drink
I've been drinking Pepsi for as long as I can remember. I usually only drink it when there is nothing better in a shop but however I still find it a nice drink and will always be something I'll drink.
The drink smell like sweet cola which I think is probably the only thing that can compare it to similar drinks like coke. I don't personally like the smell because it smell very sweet which sometimes puts me of because I end up thinking about all the sugar in the drink.
Now I hear alot of people saying that Pepsi taste the same as Coke but I don't think this is the case. I think Pepsi has more flavour and is more fizz they coke as coke can sometimes be flat.
The first thing you taste is sweetness of sugar, as well as the strong carbonation taking over your tongue. When you first take a sip the drink will be slightly bitter on your tongue but then you quickly get used to it. I sometimes taste a tiny bit of vanilla flavouring. There are some other flavour that I can slightly taste but I gave up along time trying to figure out what they are and just consider them as some sort of cola.
The aftertaste is of that cola taste and is quite pleasing and lingers for a minute or so sometimes the drink can be a little on the too fizzy side.
------Can or Glass Bottle------
I think Pepsi taste better in a Glass bottle I don't know why but I enjoy drinking it more when it is in a glass bottle as oppose to in a can. I think when it's in a glass bottle the drink is less fizzy and has more flavour than it does in a can. Glass bottles of Pepsi are quite expensive and I don't really see them around and when I do it's mostly out in a restaurant.
------Hot, Warm or Cold-------
I never drink Pepsi when it's hot I think it taste's really horrid and flat. I don't mind drinking Pepsi when it's warm but I definitely wouldn't recommend it as it doesn't taste as good. The best way I like drinking Pepsi is when it's ice cold because I get the best out of the drink. When I drink it ice cold it taste refreshing and it is good for the summer to cool me down.
When I buy cans of pepsi I like to poor it would into a glass and fill the glass with at least 3 or 4 ice cubes. The colder the better is my motto for Pepsi. I sometimes add lemon or put a lemon in my drink when I have Pepsi because it adds a little kick to the drink. The only time I really drink it from the can is when I buy chips and get a can with it from the chippy but most times I pour it out into a glass as I'm not keen on cans.
-------The Packaging & Price------
The packaging is pretty plain just being all blue and having a circle that is red white and blue and underneath saying Pepsi. I think they could have a better design for the drink because it's not exactly eye-catching for buyers. The can is something I would walk past and not take any notice of if the brand wasn't so popular.
Cans - £0.60-0.80
Bottles - £1.10 - 1.25
There are usually lots of sales on Pepsi Multi packs. There are usually sales of 8 can for £2 which I see quite often in various supermarkets. I think Pepsi is worth the price because it's a drink that you always know you will never get tired of well for me anyway.
Carbonated Water , Colour (Caramel E150d) , Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K) , Phosphoric Acid , Flavourings (including Caffeine) , Preservative (Sodium Benzoate) , Citric Acid , Contains a source of Phenylalanine.
Overall I think Pepsi is a nice drink but it's mainly just an alternative drink if nothing else is better on offer. I've been drinking it ever since I can remember and it's just something that doesn't really excite me anymore. Still a good but though and would recommend. The drink is all over and I'd be quite shocked to go into a shop and not see this is a good think because it's so easy to find a convenient because it's always there.
