With the tagline ‘Sweetened naturally’, Pepsi Next with stevia features 30% fewer calories than regular Pepsi Next.
Pepsi Next, which has around half the calories of regular Pepsi with only 60 calories per can, was launched in the US earlier this year, where the product features a mix of artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup.
Pepsi Next was developed to win back lapsed soda drinkers who want to cut back on calories but don’t like the taste of diet soda.
Dr Pepper Snapple Group and The Coca-Cola Company have released lower calorie versions of their leading soda brands over the past year.
