Soda Companies Turning Back to Sugar? Not Likely. JT October 14, 2009 News, Soft Drinks 7 Comments InÂ what will likely be good news to soft drink connoisseurs out there, Pepsi has announced that on December 28th, they are bringing back a version of their recipe with cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup for a couple months.Â While I am not a big fan of soda in general (or â€˜pop,â€™ so I can speak to the whole country), I am much less a fan of HFCS, which I think was originally made by the devil.Â Regardless, I know how people love Mexican Coke as well as Dublin Dr. Pepper, both made with cane sugar, so I am sure that a portion of folks will be super into this product.Â But donâ€™t expect this drink to be around long, as Pepsi surely will want you back on the HFCS train, per their agreement with the government and corn producers.Â Until then, have fun.

Reply Lis October 16th, 2009 I’m going to have to stock up on this… I’ll build a fort out of it. Reply Hans October 16th, 2009 I really dont think it tastes that great myself. I enjoy the passover coke. But the thing that is the best of ALL times is Coca Light. You can purchase it in Mexico, seriously tastes like regular coke, but its Mexican diet coke. Dang, them mexicans are good. Reply harleytexas October 17th, 2009 Still have a case and a half left and will stock up on more Reply tim October 20th, 2009 They launch this AFTER one of the biggest “eating” days of the year? Launch it December 22. Do another promotion just before New Year’s Eve re mixed drinks be HFCS-free. Do it right or don’t bother. Reply tim October 20th, 2009 *being HFCS-free Reply kiya October 22nd, 2009 December 28th? This has been available all over California for a year now.
