    Drinking any soda should be in your disfavor. It rots your teeth and makes you fat.

    You people just don't get it: Soda doesn't rot your teeth and make you fat people rot their teeth and make themselves fat!
    Besides its not the soda, I'm a coffee man, it's the Quaker oatmeal I like. (Quaker and a ton of other brands are owned by Pepsico)

    I haven't had a drop of ANY "soda pop" in several years and don't miss it a bit. (I used to LOVE Coke in a 16oz glass bottle!)

    Seriously though, I dont drink soda unless mixed in my delicious adult beverages.. To which I scaled way back on but I dont drink soda straight anymore.

    Everything in moderation.

    Straight shots or mixed with fruit juice for me when its that time. Pepsi always tasted like sugary hell to me anyway. I had no idea that they had their hand in so many products in one way or another.

    Anyone who is paleo is already effectively boycotting PepsiCo.

    Just avoid buying the bottled tap water (Aquafina), orange juice (Tropicana), and buy a local jerky instead of Oberto.

    With so many unhealthy products to sell you have to wonder why they would shoot themselves in the foot on such a divisive issue? Wouldn't they be better off going with the conservatives who say they believe in personal responsibility as apposed to lefties who want govt regulation on sugar and salty snacks?

    No idea....maybe it has something to do with the Liberals attacking soda? I'm as surprised as you are to see a company openly support such a controversial issue.

    I also noticed that there were some Starbucks products on that list as well.


    Pepsi is the only thing that's been managing to keep my Cluster Headaches in check so far, so this is going to be a real challenge for me to kick it (I was taking an Excedrine a day, now I drink a Pepsi a day).

    Roast you own coffee, drink charcoal filtered water, eat organic vegetables, replace potatoes with sweet potatoes or mashed turnips and grass fed meats and poultry, consume cage free pastured eggs, drink home brewed teas, if you need sweet, use Stevia.

    Wean yourself from milk products and grains....feel better and lose weight with moderate exercise. Oh, that's Paleo!! :peace:

    Not sure if its true still in the US but if you are going to ban Pepsi you best skip a few restaurant chains like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Burger King - in most of the rest of the world they are still owned at least in part by Pepsi co.

    I'm not one who's going to piss and whine about pepsi, but most of their products are quite bad for you, cola beverages have tons of phosphoric acid in them, the acid keeps you from vomiting when you drink something with so much sugar in it (you need acid to balance the sugar). There's so much phosphoric acid in it, I use soda syrup to clean concrete.

    I've never liked pepsi, I thought their whole "generation next" advertising campaign was cynical, transparent and condescending. All of the restaurants you list are gross, I don't think I've eaten taco bell since the 1980s, Burger king? Who eats at burger king? I thought it was a welfare to work program. Gives people practice flipping burgers so they can go get a real job. Subway? Ugh, I ate at one at a truckstop a few months back, it was as disgusting and painful as i remember.

    Fact of the matter is, all of these big corporations are spending a good chunk of their shareholders money doing everything they can to "pull up the ladder" and make sure no upstart chip, or soda manufacturer can come into the market and take a chunk.

    Does anyone have a list of the products I can buy? I'm sure its a MUCH shorter list.

    Anyone check out the packagers of garden seeds? Just in case you know!

    And KFC. Oh well, the colonel puts an addictive chemical in his chicken which makes you crave it fortnightly!

    Perhaps we should email the CEO of Pepsi co and let him know that his actions are leaving a bad taste in the mouth of millions of American gun owners. To avoid this bad taste, we will not be patronizing any of their products or establishments.

    That aussie sounds like another "piers morgan". I'm glad the product list was provided. I hope all 2nd Amendment lovers will carry it as a AAAC list, "avoid at all cost' list when shopping. Just maybe, we can send him packing.

    Pepsi co makes no products worth consuming. All of them cause bad health.
