Mexican Pepsi Retro Glass Bottle - 355ml
Mexican Pepsi is the only Pepsi in the world that still uses natural cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup! This popular recipe gives Mexican Pepsi a unique taste that is enjoyed all across the world.
But what's the difference between the Pepsi that they have on the shelves in the United States, United Kingdom, etc. and the popular Mexican beverage in its iconic elongated glass bottle?
So what is the secret to Mexican Pepsi? There's no denying its distinct flavour does differ from the standard recipe known the world over, but just what exactly makes the difference? It all comes down to the different ways in which Pepsi is sweetened around the world. The sweetness in modern-day soft drinks comes from a very common, but often unknown, ingredient called high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup, or HFCS, is made by breaking down the carbohydrates in corn maize and adding special enzymes to encourage the starch to turn into sugars. Then after some purification and filtering, you are left with the thick and sweet syrup known as high fructose corn syrup. Whereas this Mexican variant still uses proper cane sugar, to give it that incredible naturally sweet flavour!
