Say “Pepsi Please”, Here’s A $$$ Hint To Pepsico…..
Or even Coca-Cola for that matter. On my infrequent stops at 7-11 (not to be confused with 9-11), I go to the soda cooler section and grab a Pepsi, only to find out when I’m back in the car with the top off that I picked a Wild Cherry Pepsi or Pepsi Max or Pepsi Lime or Pepsi Jazz or Pepsi Raw or Pepsi Gold or Caffeine Free Pepsi, or Pepsi whatever else that was stuck in error into that wrong row in that dark corner of the cooler.
But, this problem made me think.
I’d gladly pay an extra 50% over the street rate for a Pepsi that was sweetened with some plain old sugar, one that isn’t using the allegedly poisonous (and very addictive) high fructose corn syrup, or some other workaround. I’m sure that Pepsi is saving some fractal part of a penny with each soda that they sell with that corn crap or other stuff in it, or perhaps getting a kickback from Monsanto (another story here) to keep using their GMO corn product, so perhaps a simple request that could pay off for them on the financial end could cause the bean counters to go old school on us, and deliver one that has the taste of the, oh let’s say, the 1960’s or 1970’s version.
It’s not like there would have to be any long and laborious, expensive R+D period involved, someone somewhere must still have that original U.S.D.A. vetted formula stuck in a drawer someplace. And I’m willing to bet there are others like me (at least in this respect) that share that wish.
Ummm, could it be that someone working in house in Purchase, New York has screaming nightmares about being the one to take the hit for the creation of another “New Coke”?
