Caffeine in Drinks

Pepsi True

Discontinued? This item may no longer be available.

Pepsi True is a cola flavored drink containing 40% fewer calories than normal Pepsi Cola.

Rather than High Fructose Corn Syrup, Pepsi True is sweetened with cane sugar and stevia, a plant-based no calorie sweetener.

This follows on from a number of attempts (Pepsi Natural, Pepsi Next) for a healthier alternative. This drink is in direct competition with Coca-Cola Life (also sweetened with real sugar and stevia and marketed in a bright green can).

Introduced in 2014, the drink began phasing out from 2018. In 2021 it was still listed on PepsiCo's corporate site - but it can no longer be found.

Ingredients in Pepsi True

Carbonated Water, Sugar, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavor, Caffeine, Purified Stevia Leaf Extract.

Includes 22 grams of sugar (per 10 ounces) for a total of 80 calories.
