Pepsi Natural

On February 19th I talked about Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback, both the original products being made with real sugar instead of HFCS. Through researching that information, I came across a website called bevreview.com. I also saw something about following the site's updates with Twitter. So, I started following and...about 30 minutes ago I saw an update from today for a product called "Pepsi Natural." I had to check it out and this is the first thing I saw. bevreview.com also quotes the press release from Pepsi saying: An all-new premium cola, Pepsi Natural is made with all-natural ingredients, including lightly sparkling water, natural sugar, natural caramel and kola nut extract. The amber-hued cola gets its color from natural caramel and natural apple extract. From the amount of bubbles to the foam that rises to the top of beverage when it's poured, Pepsi Natural offers a brand-new cola experience. Pepsi Natural is packaged in a sleek 12-oz. glass bottle and is available in single-serve and 4-packs initially in the premium and/or natural food aisles of retail outlets in the following ten regional markets; Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas and New York. and: Pepsi Natural Sparkling water, sugar, natural apple extract (color), carmel color, citric acid, caffeine, acacia gum, tartaric acid, lactic acid, natural flavor, kola nut extract. I've been blogging about my love for Pepsi for some time now. And part of my blogs have been about Pepsi's need to come out with their sodas in bottles again. Well, they finally heard me....at least I'm going to take credit for it on this site. I mean, they are making it with premium ingredients and calling in natural, and I'm betting it's not going to be found in the normal canned soda section, instead look in the health/premium foods section, but I've been saying glass bottles since.......March 10, 2008 and again on August 24, 2008. I am such a die hard fan, I'm thinking of taking a trip to San Fransisco to try and find some of this Pepsi Natural. Anyone want to go?
