I despise diet soda. Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Mt. Dew, it doesn't matter. It all tastes disgusting to me. Aspartame leaves an icky flavor in my mouth, and if I drink more than one can, it leaves me feeling nauseous. In fact, I drastically cut back on the amount of soda I drink, just so I wouldn't feel the need to switch to diet.

So I was at the grocery store today, and I decided to get a soda to go with my dinner tonight. I was looking in the cooler, trying to decide between Pepsi or Mt. Dew, when I saw this. Pepsi Edge, with 50% less sugar? I was skeptical, but it didn't have aspartame listed on the label, so I bought it.

Wouldn't you know, it actually tastes like real Pepsi. I'll be damned.
