New year, new resolutions, and a new Diet Pepsi to boot? Huffington Post reports that the long-standing drink will be seeing a change as soon as new product hits the shelves.
Up until recently, Diet Pepsi featured one artificial sweetener, aspartame. Newer bottles include an additional sweetener, acesulfame potassium. The combination of sweeteners will allow the drink to taste fresher longer, as aspartame breaks down with time and heat.
Alongside the new sweetener, a new logo (imbued with a heart) will arrive with the slogan and theme of “Love Every Sip”. Sofia Vergara will be the spokesperson for the revamped Diet Pepsi, but the brand will not advertise the change in sweeteners.
Some store shelves already have the new formula, which is intended to not change the flavor at all. If you like the current Diet Pepsi, you should like the new one.
