Pepsi Edge review

pepsi-edge.jpgMid-carb soda seems to be “the thing” for this Summer. We already took Coke C2 for a test drive, and overall gave it high marks. The theory behind mid-carb soda isn’t to switch diet drinkers (diet cola has no carbs), but to lure people who want to cut some carbs but won’t drink diet for the taste.

For the review, we set our tasting team up with a comparison between Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Edge. The team was all in agreement.

Pros

* Less carbs, sugar and calories than regular Pepsi

Cons

* Tastes a lot more like Diet Pepsi than we’d like
* Strong aftertaste
* More sugar than Coke C2

Like Coke C2, Pepsi Edge is not meant to be a low-carb drink. It’s just meant to cut out some of the empty carbs (half). However, in the process it ends up tasting too much like Diet Pepsi, which defeats the purpose. If we saw Pepsi Edge on the shelf, it would stay there. Coke C2 wins the battle of mid-carb soda.
