Advantages: NICE COLA DRINK
I have recently tried out the Pepsi Max cola flavoured soft drink and this is my review.
I often drink cola flavour soft drinks as mixers in my vodka but I am not keen on Coca-Cola as I think it is far to sweet and tastes very sugary to me. I usually end up buying a diet cola drink as I think they are not as sweet and sickly when mixed with my vodka.
I had not tried the Pepsi Max for a long time but I gave it a go recently as it was on special offer in my local off license shop. I paid only £1.50 for two large plastic bottles which are 2 litre in size. The plastic bottle can be recycled which is good for me cos I like to do my bit for the environment.
There is a label on the bottle which goes all the way round the middle of the bottle. I do not think that the Pepsi logo has changed much over the years but it does not look to dated to me. The Pepsi Max cola is a dark brown colour and it looks very nice to me.
I thought that the taste of the Pepsi Max was very good. The drink mixed well with my vodka but I also liked drinking it on its own and I liked it best when it had been allowed to cool in the fridge. The Pepsi Max tasted like a good quality drink to me. I have bought cheaper brands of cola and coke before and they have had a sort of bitter taste to them but the Pepsi Max did not taste bitter or have a sharp aftertaste to it.
There is plenty of fizz in the Pepsi Max and I did not think that it went flat to quickly. I have bought cheap brands of cola and coke before and they have went flat quite soon after the bottle has been opened but the Pepsi Max did not do this and it had a nice fizz to it.
The Pepsi Max is a low calorie option of cola drink which might make it a good drink to have if you are watching your figure as there are a lot fewer calories in this version of Pepsi than in the full sugar drink. There is sweeteners in the drink but I do not think that you can taste them and the drink does not taste to false or bitter to me which can happen in some drinks when artificial sweetners are used instead of sugar.
You can buy other types of Pepsi cola such as the full sugar option and diet Pepsi. You can also buy the Pepsi Max in smaller plastic bottles or in cans as well as the larger size bottles I bought for myself.
I would suggest giving the Pepsi Max drink a try and I really liked the taste of the cola drink. I will buy it again for mixing with my vodka.
Summary: A NICE COLA DRINK WITH LOW CALORIES
