Not To Press My Luck, But…..

Someone in Purchase, New York has read this blog.

Someone who works high up at Pepsi-Cola.

Someone who can green light an idea.

Someone who’s reading this now?

Several months ago I wrote this and not too long after I found on sale at my nearby Food-For-Less,  the basic regular Pepsi (below),

pepsi-regular

and now it was in a not-so-colorful dark 2 liter bottle that wasn’t so easy to mistake for the Diet Pepsi / Wild Cherry Pepsi / Diet Cherry Pepsi / Pepsi Max /Pepsi Lime / Pepsi Jazz / Pepsi Gold  / Pepsi Whatever, especially when you’re in a hurry for something cold to drink and the cooler’s interior light at the 7-11 is defective and blinking.

Then, only a few months later, I wrote this and lo and behold, tonight in a commercial on TV I saw an ad for “Pepsi-Throwback”, and guess what, it’s made with real sugar.

Just what the doctor (a.k.a. me) ordered. Or at least requested.

Son-Of-A-Bitch!!!!

Now that their ox (that ox would belong to the high fructose corn syrup industry) has been gored, here’s a hint if for those who don’t get the connection between the corn industry and the product “High Fructose Corn Syrup”.

But wait, there’s more! You’ll have to scan your way down that link’s page to get to the slurs against that ingredient from hell that we know as Sugar!

Mr. Pot (AKA: high fructose corn syrup), I’d like to introduce you to Mr. Kettle…….

So Mr. or Ms. Pepsi Person (is it you Frank Cooper?), when will I get my cases of product, and maybe a little of that oh-so-hot Pepsi-Promo stuff?

Or a little visit from the promo pusher?

The next request to pass along?

Get rid of those aluminum cans.

Why, you ask?

If you’ll do your due diligence research about aluminum * and Alzheimers now, perhaps you’ll be able to avoid a ton of law suits somewhere down the line.

*  “We should also consider the other studies that blame aluminum deposit/exposure to human environments ……….”  found on many sites including:  <http://www.500health.com/how-is-alzheimers-caused/&gt;

    I can disagree with getting rid of aluminum cans completely. Why? Plastic bottles and such arent that recyclable. If nothing else, move to stainless steel for the cans. Or, even go back to glass 🙂

    It’s called Alzheimer’s disease. There’s no t. Aside from that, I completely approve of what you’re doing here.
