Things I Love Thursday: Caffeine Free Pepsi
About 5 years ago I was having stress related stomach problems that required me to go off of caffeine (including, temporarily, chocolate!), among other diet changes. I like to eat. I like the food I eat. I enjoy it more with a frosty carbonated beverage. Only sprite/sierra mist/7up gives me flashbacks of having the stomach virus as a child.
I started trying the different "regular" caffeine free sodas. And while I've always been a fan of Coca-Cola products (making me the black sheep of my Pepsi family) - their caffeine free drinks taste very flat. Like a can that's been open several days.
I decided to make my family happy and try caffeine free pepsi and caffeine free mountain dew. Amazingly enough you can barely tell a difference! My stomach got better and eventually I made the switch back to the hard stuff - I recently stocked up. I figured with all the stress of the wedding and moving (and packing and painting) my nerves could use a break!
