    pepsi max alternative ... 28th Mar 12 at 9:13 PM
    Hi
    Not sure if this is the right place but here goes ....
    I am a bit of a pepsi max freak
    I only ever buy pepsi max and i dont really like the taste of diet coke .... well i went to morrisons yesterday to get some and the shelf was bare so i noticed that morrisons do there own version called cola xtra hubbie pushed me into trying it, and guess what, its not half bad
    Its 2 for 1 and it does taste like pepsi max
    I normally drink at least 2 ltrs a day so this is a massive saving !
    I am also going to just fill up my smaller pepsi bottle for on the way to work as it 1.70 for 2 in boots

    Just thought i would share for any other pepsi fans out there

    Found the Morrisons alternative this morning as have a son who will only drink pepsi max. He came home and looked at the bottles and said "urgh I won't drink that, I only drink pepsi max".
    Managed to convince him to try it and he was pleasantly suprised and said its nice and he would drink it. Told him I will now buy this one as much cheaper.
    Thanks op for the find.....

    Do you have any peer reviewed journal papers on the "dangers" of aspartame?





    Thought not.

    It's only a game

    Biological effects on bone calcium and kidney health
    Phosphoric acid...........

    I don't understand the point of your post when the thread itself was meant to help save people money by mentioning a cheaper similar product. Why post that?

    Its not just coke by the way, its not just phosphoric acid either, caffeine salt and lack of exercise can also have the same leeching effect on bones and lead to bone conditions. Coffee, Red Bull, strong tea all have caffeine in, lemonade, even fizzy water also have phosphoric acid in, many foods have other bad things in them (too much salt, trans fat, too much sugar, alcohol, industrialised cities, lack of sleep/exercise...etc etc)

    Most people encounter at least one of these things on a daily basis and most people manage to make their own minds up, it is the choice of the person and the responsibilty of the person making that choice. (This is something which comes with age ) applying a counter effect exercise to help minimise any damage caused or live with the issue.

    Either you are trolling or you really do not realise that the choice is really down to the person themselves, why post that?!

    my picky husband says that RC cola from Asda is almost the same as coke if anyone is looking for a replacement for that rather than for pepsi. I can't taste the difference between any of them but he can, even in a blind test (and yes, I did blindfold him and try it )
  • mumofthetwins
    Thanks Jenniewb
    I did post hoping that someone else can save money too.
    I do excericse for 1 hour 6 days a week, have a mega helthy BMI, dont drink alcohol, dont smoke and cook most of my meals from scratch ... so apart from the pepsi i do live a healthy lifestyle. The kids also wouldnt thank me for fizzy pop as they much prefer milk, water or cordial and as they see me drink it its not something thats taboo and like alot of there friends they dont drink as much as they can when we arnt around.
    Peanuckle - i know exactly what you mean about the blind taste tests, i am the same with pepsi max. Hubbie has even tried putting something different in the pepsi bottle, but i was all ready to write a complaint to pepsi before he told me

    I have also found a Tesco equivalent too for those not near a Morrisons. It's called "Xero Cola" and is packaged very similarly to Pepsi Max / Coke Zero. It doesn't taste *exactly* the same but it's good enough for my fussy boys so yay!! Think a 2L bottle was 56p so bit of a difference from the branded stuff!
