  • Diet Pepsi /global

CG8vjt6v_400x400PepsiCo is no longer adding aspartame to its Diet Pepsi in order to reverse poor sales. The brand will replace the much-maligned sweetener with sucralose, which will be combined with acesulfame potassium, or Ace-K.Diet Pepsi last changed its formula in 2013 when it blended Ace-K with aspartame, which had been in use since 1983, according to the trade publication.The change will be made to Diet Pepsi, Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi and Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi in the U.S. New Diet Pepsi cans will include language declaring the soda as "now aspartame free." The product will begin hitting stores in August and the change will likely be accompanied with new marketing. All other major soda diet brands contain aspartame, including Diet Coke.
