      • "Cheaper than Diet Coke"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not as nice as Diet Coke"

      Marymoose thinks it's not as nice as Diet Coke!

      Thought I''d have another attempt at trying to post a review, and since I''m drinking a Diet Pepsi, it makes sense to review it.

      I like to have a can of Diet Coke every day, particularly now I'm pregnant and it's one of my few treats (I'm not drinking any other caffeine, so it's fine). However, Diet Coke can be expensive, so we get whatever is on special offer - whether that is Diet Coke, Pepsi Max or Diet Pepsi.

      Cans weren't on offer this week, so we got a couple of 2 litre bottles for 99p each. I keep these in the fridge as it tastes much better cold. I believe it tastes best out of a can, but this is the next best thing.

      I find that Diet Pepsi is quite sweet, and has a slightly sickly after taste. I don't like non-diet drinks as I don't like the feeling they have on my teeth. I do prefer Pepsi Max to this, but since my boyfriend prefers Diet Pepsi, we tend to get this.

      Obviously being a diet drink this isn't going to make you fat like normal Pepsi would. However, it does contain artificial sweeteners, and I know that a lot of people have a problem with the evil Aspartame. I don't! I can't be bothered to list any ingredients. I will be amazed if this review posts full stop!

      In terms of packaging, it's nothing special. The drink itself is cola coloured.

      Anyway, I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars as it's my third favourite cola drink (Diet Coke wins by a long way followed by Pepsi Max, and then this).

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice light drink!

      Even though I love Pepsi and Pepsi Max...although I do try to limit how much of the stuff I drink, I had never actually tried Diet Pepsi until recently when I started this Weight Watcher's diet. Just so you know, this Diet Pepsi has 0 Weight Watcher's points! Woo hoo!!

      The taste is very likeable. It is very light and tastes very similar to Pepsi. One good thing about it is that it doesn't have that awful 'watered down' taste than Diet Coke has, which means that this Diet Pepsi is full flavoured. It is not as sweet as Pepsi Max (which I love) - although this is just as good and the fact that it isn't as sweet as Pepsi Max is not a problem for me.

      Obviously, whilst this is diet and has no points, it's not exactly good for you as they use sweeteners (which are said to be cancer causing) rather than sugar and so I don't drink too much of this - only now and again when I am out or when I fancy something sweet.

      This is good if you fancy something sweet but don't want to waste any points. It's particularly nice with a few chunks of ice. I find that it tastes much nicer out of a can than it does the bottle and so I tend to buy the cans rather than the bottles.

      All in all, I would recommend this Diet Pepsi!

      Thanks for reading!

        A nice refreshing fizzy drink

        Pepsi or Coke? When it comes to this debate I'm more of a Pepsi girl and while sitting in a hospital waiting room last week I bought a 600ml bottle of diet Pepsi from the little kiosk in there.

        The bottle is the same as most other soft drinks bottles and made from clear plastic with a screw top lid, there's a silver coloured label around the bottle which displays the Pepsi logo
        Apart from the usual information such as the ingredients, nutritional information and a brief description of the drink most of the label is taken up with a promotion Pepsi is currently running.

        Diet Pepsi is described as a " low calorie cola flavoured soft drink with sweeteners".
        I find it hard to describe the flavour of Diet Pepsi, how do you describe a cola flavour? I would say it has a very slight fruity tang to it but apart from that its just Cola flavoured!

        Diet Pepsi is lovely and fizzy and I find tends to hold its fizz longer than its rival Coca Cola, being diet its ideal for people like me who are diabetic or those who are slimming or just cutting down on sugar. A 250ml serving of Diet Pepsi contains just 1 cal, no sugar and no fat so there's no need to feel guilty. I personally prefer it chilled from the fridge and that's how Pepsi recommend you drink this but this is down to the individual.

        Diet Pepsi is available from most shops that sell fizzy drinks, Tesco and Asda currently have 500ml bottles on sale for £1.00, it can also be found in most drinks machines but is nearly always more expensive from these.

        I really like Diet Pepsi, I find it really refreshing especially in the warm weather, its nice and fizzy and leaves no nasty after taste in my mouth like some diet drinks can and best of all it contains no sugar so doesn't affect my blood sugar levels. If you like cola flavoured fizzy drinks I certainly recommend Diet Pepsi, in my opinion it beats Coca Cola any day and makes a great mixer for Vodka.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        It's good for me as i'm on a diet

        I drink this drink as it is better for the waistline compared to regular Pepsi.

        Diet Pepsi contains very little calories, so you can consume it as part of a calorie controlled diet without you having to feel guilty. The usual size of the drink (that I consume the most of) is the 500ml bottle. You can sip it on the go as it has a screw top lid. The drink is a normal diet cola with minimal sugar and only trace fat. The drink can be consumed as it is or you can add a slice of lemon as an extra kick.

        The drink tastes very crisp and refreshing. It is a carbonated drink but it isn't too fizzy. It is quite light and you can drink it on the go. I find that I can drink the drink with or without food. Drinking it with food helps to wash my food down and it doesn't leave me feeling bloated and/ or uncomfortable. The drink leaves a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth after drinking.

        The only bad thing is the fact that it doesn't taste as sweet as regular cola. You can taste the difference between diet Pepsi and regular Pepsi. This drink is obviously better for you but it doesn't taste as good as the regular cola, hence the low calorie content.

        I would recommend this drink but I still miss the taste of regular cola.

        It's such a shame that i'm on a diet... :(

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great for drinking on its own or as a mixer, love it :)

        I tend to prefer diet drinks to full fat thesedays, I found that once I had stopped drinking the sugary drinks I really didn't miss the taste and find them now too much to handy, especially with Coke and Pepsi drinks. I am enjoying drinking a can or two of Pepsi Diet a lot at the moment, it also tends to be cheaper than Diet Coke which is a bonus too.

        Diet Pepsi was originally created in America in 1964 and came to the UK in 1983, with its competitor Diet Coke coming into the running in 1982. The Pepsi branding is a notorious logo being red, white and blue in an almost tennis ball like pattern on the product and is easily recognisable around the world. The Diet Pepsi appearance is traditionally silver with the logo and title clearly visible on its label.

        Like most carbonated drinks is is available in an array of sizes and containers, traditionally in glass bottles, more commonly now in 330ml cans, 500ml, 1l and 2l plastic bottles in all newsagents, corner shops and supermarkets. I don't tend to drink it in the bottled variety if I can help it as I prefer the freshness and fizz you get from a can.

        The colour of the soft drink is a typical caramel or light brown cola appearance, with lots of bubbles produced from the carbonated drink. It has a very fluid consistency and unlike its full fat siblings in my opinion doesn't taste either thick or sticky. The lack of sugar leaves a nice refreshing taste in your mouth and is lovely on a hot summers day with ice and lime. Zero sugar content also makes the drink taste less sweet than the normal Pepsi drink, perhaps a bad thing as it tends to make me want to drink more of it! The cola taste is sharp and crisp everytime and tastes even better with the knowledge that there are zero calories, zero sugar and zero carbs in the drink.

        As mentioned I personally prefer this drink straight from a chilled can as I find it is at its optimum fizzyness and you tend to drink it all in one go. As with all carbonated drinks resealable plastic bottles will often lose their fizz over the period of time they are open and one of the main reasons I drink carbonated drinks is for the fizz factor. This is nothing worse than a flat, sugary glass of coke!

        Diet Pepsi is often competitively priced to Diet Coke in supermarkets and you can pay anything from 50p a single can to £1.20 for a 500ml bottle. It is commonly on offer in supermarkets particularly in multipacks which are both stocking up on.

        The Ingredients are for 8 fl oz:
        Calories 0
        Total Fat (g) 0
        Sodium (mg) 25
        Total Carbs (g) 0
        Sugars (g) 0
        Protein (g) 0
        % Juice 0
        Caffeine (mg) 24
        Potassium (mg) 20
        Phosphorus (mg) 27
        Low Calorie Sweeteners
        Aspartame (mg) 118

        CARBONATED WATER, CARAMEL COLOuR, ASPARTAME, PHOSPHORIC ACID, POTASSIUM BENZOATE (PRESERVES FRESHNESS), CAFFEINE, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVOR

        Given the choice I really wouldn't say I prefer Diet Coke over Diet Pepsi at all, they both have a unique refreshing and crisp taste to them, I would probably choose the cheaper or coldest at the time of purchasing!

          Diet Pepsi

          I'm a definate addict of both Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi, but which is better?

          Personally, i prefer Pepsi. Pepsi has a much sweeter taste to it, and even though it's diet, it doesn't taste too artificial nor does it leave a nasty after taste like some diet drinks can. Pepsi has the same appearence of coke; a caramael brown liquid which is nice and fizzy. The packaging is also similar; it comes in the same forms as Coke does - 330ml cans, 500ml bottles, 1 litre bottles and 2 litre bottles. The design of the packaging is blue on the non diet products and silver on the diet.

          I love the cans of Pepsi and much prefer them to the bottles as i think they keep the fizz for longer for some reason. The can is allumineum and is a shiney silver with the Pepsi logo (a white, red and blue circle - i have no idea what it actually is!), and underneath the logo it says 'pepsi diet'. At the minute they are running a promotion called 'Are you the world's best mate?' so there is a red band around the top with competition details, this isn't usually there and is a one off. Overall the packaging, although basic, is pretty stylish and is instantly reconiseable to most people.

          I buy my pepsi from Tesco or sainsburys, and a pack of 8 cans sets me back around the £3.80/£4 mark which in my opinion is quite expensive (although it does actually work out at around 30p a can which is cheaper than buying the cans seperately rather than in a multipack.) I usually stock up on the cans when they're on offer which is usually 1-2 times a month and they are either half price for buy one get one free.

          When the cans aren't on offer i make do with a 2 litre bottle, which i'm not too fond of as i find the pepsi goes flat unless it's drank up within 2/3 days. A 2l bottle is £1.57 and is also often on offer. The 500ml bottles in my opinion are overpriced at 97p-£1 each in most supermarkets and i rarely buy them, although my local pound shop does do them at 2 for a pound which isn't too bad but i personally don't see it as very cheap when a 2l bottle can be bought for 57p more.

          As i said before Pepsi is much sweeter than Coke, and i find it more refreshing. It is equally as fizzy and contains almost identical ingredients to Coke.

          The diet version which i am reviewing contains artificial sweeteners so is only 1.3 calories per can, which is around 155 calories less than a full sugar can of the same drink.

          I'm not sure if i would reccomend Diet Pepsi. I have personally found it to be pretty addictive due to the artificial ingredients and the caffiene it contains (which is used as a flavouring), and in the past i have had withdrawl symptoms after just 1 day of not drinking it - i was shaking and had a really bad headache. It is one of my goals to drink less Pepsi and Coke (i drink pepsi more though!) as i don't think it's a healthy habit to have.

          According to many people it can even strip the bones of Vitamin C and there's lots of other horror stories too such as it preserves fat cells making it impossible to lose weight. I'm not sure if this is true as i have lost around 4 stone in the past and i was still drinking pepsi daily. The aspartame that both pepsi and coke use to sweeten the liquid is apparently linked to cancer and brain tumours, however many scientists have dismissed this but it's not for certian that it isn't true which is slightly worrying and there are also claims that it builds up in the human body which can't be good.

          Overall, it's up to you if you want to try it. I will admit it tastes good and is low calorie but at what cost to our health? Even though it does have a stigma around it, i will take chemicals over calories any day; the sugar in non diet drinks are ridiculous so for anyone dieting who can't resist a can of fizzy pop, this is for you.

          Disadvantages

          A lovely thirst quenching drink for the summer

          Years ago I remember being in the Metro centre and there being a competition where you had to drink out of two cups of coke and decide which of the two was Coca Cola and which one was Pepsi, I wasn't able to pick out the right one and from then always thought they tasted the same.

          Over the last few months the supermarkets have been putting Pepsi on a £1 for a 2 litre bottle so I decided to pick that up instead of the usual Coke, a 2 litre bottle of Pepsi is usually £1.79 when not on offer which considering how long a bottle of pop lasts in my house I try not to pay full price. I always buy the diet version of carbonated drinks as I find that beside the fact the full sugar ones of full of empty calories I think they taste very syrupy and don't quench my thirst.

          Pepsi was invented in North Carolina in 1898 however the Pepsi Company wasn't launch until 1902. Diet Pepsi comes in cans of 330ml and bottles of 500ml, 600ml, 1 litre, 1.25 litres and 2 litres, the 2 litre bottle does tend to be the best value. The bottle has a grey screw top cap on it and a grey, red and blue label which indicates the diet variety, on the front of the bottle is the Pepsi logo and across the top of the label at present is a strip advertising the chance to win £300 or 4 festival tickets every hours. Around the back of the bottle you have a list of ingredients on of which is Aspartame which has caused a lot of controversy and has been banned in some countries from being in food and drink, you also get the nutritional information which is 1 calorie per 250ml and nothing else apart from a trace of salt.

          After buying this because of the offer I have decided that it does actually have a very different taste to Coke and I much prefer it, the drink is sweet yet refreshing and I can drink it either cold or at room temperature. I have found that Pepsi actually quenches my thirst for longer than Coke but once it starts going flat the sweetness seems to increase so I have to drink it whilst still fizzy.

          I am now converted and unless Coke is on a really good offer my first choice is now always Pepsi, if you want a nice refreshing drink with a great taste try this.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A nice refreshing drink

          ==Diet Pepsi==

          As an avid coke drinker I like to call myself a bit of an expert when it comes to the taste and drinkability of coke type drinks. My favourite coke drink is actually Coca Cola and I prefer to by the boxes of the cans. Not only are they doing a long term promotion where you can collect Coke points and for this then exchange them for prizes but the cans themselves seem to keep the coke the right temperature and keep the fizz better than a large plastic bottle.

          This said drinking cans at home often works out far more expensive per glass than drinking the coke out of a bottle and because I am watching the pennies to save for a new house I have been branching out and trying any brand in any form it comes. So because the large 2 litre bottles of Pepsi were on offer in Morrison's the other week at 99 pence for a bottle I decided to stock up and thus save myself a fair bit by not buying the boxes of the cans which are usually on a special offer but still work out far more expensive than a bottle of this Pepsi would do.

          The design of the bottle for Pepsi is more or less what it has been for years and instantly you can recognise it as the brand. The plastic bottle has a relatively easy to open screw cap which must be replaced tightly otherwise the fizz from the coke will be lost pretty quickly. The bottle fits well into my fridge either in the door or laying down on one of the shelves.

          The Pepsi cola looks just like any other cola in the fact that it is a very deep brown colour and as soon as you pour a bit from the bottle you can see the ton of bubbles which the cola has inside it. I would say that Pepsi seems to be a little fizzier than its competitors because you have to tilt the glass and pour very slowly to allow for easy pouring otherwise the cola fizzes up and you have to wait for the bubbles to subside before pouring any more otherwise the cola will spill everywhere.

          The taste of the Pepsi is really rather nice. The diet Pepsi or the Pepsi max is probably the one I would always opt for as drinking a fully loaded sugar content coke is not my idea of a good way to waste a ton of calories! However when comparing the diet to the max variety I can say that I much prefer the lesser sweet taste of the diet type. There is not too much fake sweetness going on with the diet compared to the max taste one and I find it just about the right sweetness. However when comparing the Pepsi Diet to the Coca Cola Diet I still find pepsi to have a much faker sweetness and all said I find it a less nicer taste.

          The fizz is wonderful and it is most certainly a nice refreshing drink especially when served mice and cold. The Pepsi is a much better taking cola than a lot of the stores own brands but I'm not quite sure that it measures up to the real Coca Cola. I do however class this as my second favourite cola to drink and I am not too fussed about drinking this from cans or a bottle as the fizziness is great when getting it from a bottle.

          All in all I can't say it is the best but it is most certainly up at the top as far as cola drinks go and for that reason I feel a score of 4 out of 5 stars is in order and a recommendation.

          I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.

          Many thanks for taking the time to read.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Well worth buying; ok for you healthwise, just dont drink loads re caffeine.

          I often buy diet pepsi; its fantastic if you are watching those calories and fantastic if you are not! It has a really refreshing, sparkling, fizzy taste and i will always buy diet pepsi when it is on special offer (which is usually is in Iceland). At present, its only £1.00 per 2 litre bottle in Iceland, along with regular Pepsi. Some supermarkets frequently charge far more than this (about £1.80 per bottle). I simply refuse to pay this amount; it is not necessary and a rip off in my view. Take my advice, when you see it on special offer, buy it in bulk; think of how much money you will save.

          To be honest i do have a slight prefernce for coke/diet coke myself but i have noticed that it is rare for that to be on offer, so i stick to pepsi. It has a lovely taste and flavour, wont go flat and my kids drink it; the diet pepsi is better for them than regular pepsi. Its great with ice and a slice too and of course must be drank chilled.

          There is only 1kcal per 250ml serving with no sugar, no fat, no saturates and only a trace of salt. Now that can't be a bad thing. There is caffeine in it of course, so i dont recommend you drink loads of it; it also contains aspartame, regards it being a diet drink.

          I am not quite sure why Britvic (the makers) decided to introduce Pepsi Max! There is very little difference; however there is more caffeine in pepsi max and more aspartame in diet pepsi; i always stick with diet pepsi and i slightly prefer the taste. There are various other types of pepsi around too, though many dont seem to be available in the uk, but you can order them on line. (These include wild cherry pepsi) Personally i never liked cherry coke so i would give this one a miss. However, theres a great website called american soda, which gives you details; americansoda.co.uk (you can also get some really yummy usa products on there too!)

          This is a great fizzy drink, well worth buying on special offers!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good distraction from snacking

          Since I started my 'new' job back last June, I've started drinking a lot more Pepsi, as work are kind enough to provide a drinks dispenser with a selection of drinks that are free.

          I've been trying to eat healthily since new year, and although I know that diet drinks such as Diet Pepsi are filled with chemicals and sweeteners, they are often a good way to avoid eating. Particularly as work also provides endless supplies of free muffins, flapjacks, chocolate, biscuits, pastries, crisps and numerous other things which I find impossible to resist!

          I would have to say that I never normally buy Diet Pepsi when I'm out and about; I'm much more likely to pick Diet Coke, Sprite or Coke Zero given the choice. However, now I've started drinking Diet Pepsi I do find I like the actual taste more than Diet Coke. There's a famous study which shows that people base their perceptions on packaging between Coke and Pepsi, and even when they changed the packaging without changing the flavour, people claimed it tasted different. Since I'm drinking it without any packaging to influence me, I do like the taste more than Diet Coke, although I wouldn't be surprised if there are slightly addictive elements to it.

          I'm finding it difficult to find of words to describe the taste of it, because there's no one distinct flavour I can pick out. Compared to Diet Coke, though, I would say Diet Pepsi is a bit sweeter and almost fruitier tasting, so it's probably not a good choice for those who don't have a sweet tooth!

          Diet Pepsi can be bought in various forms, including 330ml cans, 500ml bottles, 1l bottles and so on. In many places, including fast food takeaways and cinemas, it's dispensed into a paper cup from a drinks dispenser which mixes the syrup with water. It's averagely priced in the market, so to get the best deal it's better to buy in bulk from cheaper supermarkets or places such as Makro or Costco.

          Diet Pepsi is also known in some countries as Pepsi Light. It contains the following ingredients: CARBONATED WATER, CARAMEL COLOR, ASPARTAME, PHOSPHORIC ACID, POTASSIUM BENZOATE (PRESERVES FRESHNESS), CAFFEINE, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVOUR.

          It's not good for you, let's face it, but it's a nice treat compared to just drinking water all the time.

            Sugar replaced, but so is the taste in this low calorie version of pepsi

            I don't often go for sugar free, or diet versions, of carbonated drinks. I find they taste rather manufactured and chemical ridden and are a far cry from their original drink. Coke is one such drink, and its main market rival, Pepsi, also has a diet version.

            If I had a choice between Coke and Pepsi, I'd usually opt for the former, although to be honest my decision is nearly always based on price at the time. Currently, it seems as if one brand is on offer and then the other is, and you can usually find some cola based drink on a 2 for 1 price or a reduced price offer. Recently, Diet Pepsi was on offer in my local supermarket, and so I picked up a couple of bottles.

            The carbonation is quite good. There's no need to worry about a bottle of this losing its fizz quickly - even if you buy a 2 litre bottle of this then chances are you'll still have quite a bit of gas in it by the time you reach the bottom of the bottle. I find that the taste, though, leaves a lot to be desired. Initially, you can tell from the very first aftertaste that there is a sugar substitute in the drink, and that this is low in calories. There's that artificial taste to it that you don't usually get with the regular version; although again, Diet Pepsi has this artificial taste moreso than Diet Coke does.

            After a few glasses of this, it gets a bit sickly. It's like having a cup of tea or coffee with Canderel in it instead of sugar - the difference in taste rather changes the whole perception of what the point in having the drink is in the first place. I find that Diet Pepsi goes okay if you have it mixed with a strong tasting spirit such as whiskey, and include some ice, for example. With less potent spirits, perhaps vodka or something a bit sweeter like a Schnapps, then the artificial taste is more prominent and sort of ruins the drink.

            Diet Pepsi is not something I'd really recommend, to be honest. I don't know why I keep bothering with buying it. I tend to have the occasional glass of rum and coke, and with this, the Diet version is okay, but not quite as nice as if I had added regular Pepsi or even Pepsi Max to it - it's all about the taste. This is low in calories, for sure, promoting less than 1 calorie per 250ml of the drink, but this to me seems to be the only reason to go for it, and it's not enough to permanently change. I may continue to occasionally choose this if it's on a good offer, but otherwise it's not something I'd go for.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Diet Pepsi has taken a strong position in the market and tastes great on its own or as a mixer!

              Diet Pepsi has recently taken a leading role in the soft drink industry in the UK. It combines the healthy message of not having high volumes of sugar with the cool and young appeal and has definitively beaten Coca Cola on the price front which has made it the preferred choice of an ever growing number of pubs, bars and restaurants as well as many households.

              I have personally switched over to buying Pepsi a couple years ago ever since their prices plummeted in comparison with the Diet Coke alternative. I'll always be buying a Coke-based product for general recreation and for mixing with alcoholic beverages. Diet versions are nice as I prefer the taste and at the same time, these are supposedly better for you if you are trying to keep off the pounds.

              I definitely prefer the taste of diet pepsi, although this is a view which is not shared by most of my family. On tops of this, Diet Pepsi works very nicely as a mixer - I am a fan of Rum and Disaronno cocktails. I am no scientist, but it makes a great crackling noise when poured over very cold ice cubes.

              Last, but not least, the prices on Coke products has been a tense affair ever since the two entered into the never-ending competition. Most recently, Pepsi has typically been 1/3 or thereabouts cheaper than Coca Cola alternatives which in my mind is a great reason to choose Diet Pepsi seeing as there is objectively so little to choose between the two!

                Fizzy thirst quencher!

                I really hate drinking, by this mean I just don't really drink - anything. I know this is really bad and I do suffer really bad migraines because of it, however, the one drink that I would happily drink is pepsi.
                Now knowing, that this isn't good for me I decided to swap in my normal pepsi in for diet pepsi.

                The thing that I love about this drink is how refreshing it is, I think it really has to be drank cols as this is when it has that cold, fresh taste to it.

                Pepsi is quite similar to Coke, however I personally feel that pesi seems to be a bit sweeter and often is found cheaper.
                I just bought a 2 litre of pepsi in Sainsburys, however it is also avaliable in other large supermarkets and some local newsagents.

                The drink itself I find to be quite fizzy, but not too much so that it is hard to drink. I don't find it to give me hiccups and fo find it a very pleasant drink.

                I can not describe the flavour, as it is very unique and other than that it is quite similar to 'coke' I unsure of an actual flavour I can use to describe it.

                It defintley works well to quench first, and although knowing it is not the best drink for you and has many sweetners in it , I do find it to be refreshing and also has that little bit of caffiene in it, which is just enough for me.

                On the bottle it says it has less that one calorie per 250ml, however I think it is the sugars and your teeth you should be watching!

                  A great tasting drink that is bad for your health

                  mmm Pepsi, it might taste the same as Coke, but it actually tastes better...or is that my mind playing tricks on me?! I was first introduced to pepsi a few years ago on one of my trips to India, when it comes to fizzy drinks in India, I've always found that pepsi and fanta top the popularity list. On first taste I thought, 'hmm...this is basically coke with a different label slapped on the bottle.' During my university years, when I basically lived on fizzy drinks and kept switching between coke and pepsi, I started noticing there was a difference in their tastes. Pepsi feels a bit sweeter and it mre refreshing on the first sip than coke does.


                  While I'm not particularly health conscious when choosing drinks in terms of diet or non-diet, I mean let's face it either way they are still not good for you, I have noticed the taste of diet also seems sweeter than non-diet, which is surprising considering it's diet, you'd expect it to be the other way around. Anyhow that's the story of how I came to drinking diet pepsi...all the time.


                  So diet pepsi is a cola drink, if you have tasted any cola drinks it basically tastes the same, just sweeter and fizzier. What I love about diet pepsi is the fact that it feels refreshing and awakening...possibly due to the caffeine. It makes a good social drink, if you don't drink alcohol, I mean it won't get you drunk or tipsy, just slightly more energised. It is also a good substitute for coffee or whatever other drinks or tablets you may take to stay awake as you plan to pull an all-nighter for that essay due in a few hours time!


                  The downside is that much like most other caffeine products, it can make you feel a bit tired and sluggish after a while, and it definitely gets very addictive. I remember trying to not drink pepsi for a while, for the sake of my teeth and bones, but found after a few weeks all of sudden out of the blue I found myself in desperate need of just one sip of pepsi, which I didn't have at the time. I was so desperate it was almost painful, I went and indulged myself with some ice cream instead, but that did not make a good substitute. Needless to say, I went out the next day and bought some diet pepsi. Anyway addiction equals rotting teeth and bones which equals not good.


                  Diet pepsi is available in various sizes and cans, but I tend to buy the 500ml plastic bottles from poundland, where you can get two for a pound. Overall it is a great drink but like anything else try not to get hooked onto it, it may not be good for you in the long-term!

                    .

                    I do like the odd Pepsi, and Diet Pepsi I think tastes nice and sweet but without all the calories. Not really a manly thing to say, but I could do with losing a few pounds and if you've read any of my other reviews then you will see that I like all the bad foods out there. So I have to compromise with the Juice sometimes.

                    This is nice in a non Diet tasting way. It doesn't taste tasteless in the way that some Diet Juice drinks, so it's nice.

                    You can get this in numerous ways such as 330ml tins, 500ml bottles (which I think have now changed to 600ml bottles and apparently for the same price), 2 litre bottles and so on. Prices are just the usual prices for brand named Juice from around 65p for a can to around £1.60 for the 2litre bottle.

                    The label or outer part is blues and whites with the Pepsi symbol on it and it looks ok for what it is.

                    The Juice is a very dark brown colour, looks black.

                    It is fizzy but I don't find it as fizzy as Diet Coke. It goes flat quick as well, and not so good when it is flat.

                    There is only 0.3 calories per 100ml in this juice.

                    This is a nice lighter version of normal pepsi. Although you don't get all the taste from the full fat one, it is just as nice and you can have loads of this and not even match up to 1 can of Pepsi calorie wise.
