Britvic Pepsi Max
Advantages: No calories but full taste, comes in different sizes, versatile drink
Disadvantages: Too fizzy for some, unhealthy
I always drink Pepsi Max when I come to my sisters house as it is her favourite and she likes to keep some available in her kitchen. I used to prefer Coca Cola to Pepsi but she has now converted me to this.
Pepsi as most people will be aware is a coke flavoured drink, and I actually was not aware until recently that the Max version is actually the zero calorie diet version. There is also diet Pepsi, which has that typical diet taste to it, but Pepsi max is the one which tastes the same as normal pepsi but just with less calories. Thats why I didn't realise, as it does have a full flavour and does not seem watered down or weaker at all.
It is quite sweet but I do find it refreshing. It is very carbonated and fizzes a lot when you pour it out, so sometimes you do need to be careful not to let it overflow, but it is not so fizzy that it makes me feel sick. It can make me feel a bit full, but not too bad.
Even though it is low calorie it has got sweeteners and probably is still bad for your teeth but I think it is fine to drink every now and again.
It can be bought in different sizes such as 500 ml, 1 litre or 2 litres. I bought a 2 litre bottle today for £1.85 from Tesco to bring to my sister's house. This price is okay but not the best as you can occasionally get it for £1.
This can also be used as a mixer for alcoholic drinks such as vodka or rum, and in addition it can be used to make an ice cream coke float dessert so it is somewhat versatile, although I normally do just drink it on its own.
Overall it is a good drink to have at times, as it does have a nice full taste but still has no calories.
Summary: I like it but not every day
