Product Information

Pepsi is one of the few beverage companies that offers to over-compensate consumers who are unhappy with their drink by sending a mass of coupons. Their dedication to providing fresh and high-quality taste is paramount; the company sends enough coupons to compensate consumers at least five times over for a defective product.

Pepsi is a carbonated beverage made with water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, caramel color, Phosphoric acid, citric acid, caffeine and natural flavors. The most common forms of products are plastic 20-ounce bottles and 12-ounce aluminum cans. In a 12-ounce can of the original Pepsi drink, there are 41 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fat, 30 milligrams of sodium, zero grams of protein and 38 milligrams of caffeine.

There are 350 calories in one can. Diet Pepsi contains artificial sweetener and has zero calories, while caffeine-free Pepsi contains the same ingredients aside from caffeine.

Additional Products

In the United States, Pepsi also makes Mountain Dew, along with its variants. They also produce Mug Root Beer, Sierra Mist, Citrus Blast, Tropicana Twister Soda and Patio Ginger Ale and Qui.nine Tonic. In Mexico, Pepsi produces the same beverages, along with Mirinda sodas, which are fruit-flavored caffeine-free sodas. They also produce one of Mexico's best-sellers, Manzanita Sol, a red-apple-flavored soda.

Pepsi's History

The original Pepsi drink came into existence in 1898, originally called "Brad's Drink." It was named after the creator, Caleb Bradham, who produced the beverage from his home. Later in 1903, it was named "Pepsi Cola." This name was chosen because the drink contains the digestive enzyme called Pepsin.

It is also made from kola nuts, hence the name "cola." Bradham's vision was to provide a refreshing and delicious beverage to the public that would aid in digestion, increase energy and please the palate. During Pepsi's first year with it's trademark name, nearly 8,000 bottles of syrup were sold.

Since it became so popular, the next year the drink was sold in individual six-ounce bottles. For nearly two decades, Pepsi was sold and advertised as "healthful and delicious."

Pepsi During the Great Depression

Later in 1931, the Great Depression took its toll on Pepsi, forcing it into bankruptcy. This was due to the increase in price of sugar that took place following World War I. The Pepsi Company was purchased by Roy Megargel, but the company experienced bankruptcy again eight years after that. Charles Guth became the new owner. Pepsi was close to losing existence entirely between 1922 and 1933.

During these 11 year, the famous Coca-Cola Company had the opportunity to buy Pepsi three different times, but declined each one. During the Great Depression, 12-ounce bottles were released. When sales were slow, the prices were cut in half, making it the most popular drink during that time period.


The 1940s-era president Walter Mack brought the company even more success, targeting minority groups in advertisements and gaining thousands of more regular customers. Throughout the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s, Pepsi continued to top record sales, using their slogan "Pepsi hits the spot."

Pepsi Versus Coke

A longtime rival of Coke, Pepsi gained significant ground on Coke by using a blind taste test where people would prefer Pepsi (due to it having a sweeter flavor). Coke went so far as re-branding to create New Coke, in a move their customers loathed. Today, Pepsi continues to thrive and is Coca-Cola's most fierce competitor.

Special Events

Pepsi takes part in a wide array of annual and seasonal events, which vary each year. One yearly event is the annual Pepsi Cola Collector's Club convention, which meets in Las Vegas in late October or early November. During this time, collectors of Pepsi products and memorabilia from all over the world gather to share their collections.

Pepsi also takes part in charitable events, fundraisers and other special events for good causes. The donate products, time and money for cancer research, low-income students and the less fortunate residents of third-world countries.

To keep their marketing, taste and production ideas fresh, Pepsi encourages the public to submit their ideas, often holding promotional contests with prizes for the most attractive ideas. Their goal behind this idea is to make the world "one" by using ideas from everyone in every place.
