Pepsi is a solid drink with good flavor. Like Coke, it has a long history. Compared to Coke it’s sweeter and has less bite. Coke has more of an acidic element. I like the taste of Pepsi, but I don’t drink it often. A 20oz bottle contains 66 grams of sugar. That’s about 16.5 teaspoons of sugar. It’s a good pick me up if your blood sugar is low and you need immediate calories, but I rarely consume this beverage, it is too sweet.

Sweetener: high fructose corn syrup

Vanilla Coke


This is a classic with a twist, it’s vanilla flavored Coke! The vanilla flavor is pleasant and mellows out the acidic or biting flavor of Coke. I think this is a good tasting drink, but I drink it very sparingly just a few times a year (and not all at once). The 20FL oz bottle contains 70 grams of sugar. That is no joke. It’s about 17.5 teaspoons of sugar.
