Thank you Pepsi & Obama!(Vanity)
Vanity | 02/14/2010 | Self

Posted on 02/14/2010 5:50:50 AM PST by fuzzybutt

For most of my 53 years on earth I have been addicted to Mt. Dew, the caffeine infused drink from Pepsi with a slight hint of citrus. On an average day I could consume five 16oz bottles making me a very loyal PepsiCo customer to say the least.

But then Pepsi got in bed with the Obama worshippers and spent millions changing their well-known logo to one that paid homage to their new tin god. Then they lost me forever!

For over 14 months I have given up all Pepsi products and have not given one penny to PepsiCo. While my wife has switched my sugar intake to sweet tea, I now consume far less sugar & caffeine than I did last year.

Thank you Pepsi for worshipping Obama and setting me free from slavery to your addictive product. And BTW I do not eat at Taco Bell or KFC anymore either!

Thanks for the heads up. I had not realize Pepsi was in the Obamaloon.

I and my family are now off of anything associated with these Obamaholes.

Pepsi has been a leftist promoter for at least 30 years. Coke ain’t much better.

My brother in law did the same thing. He’s now a diabetic and grossly overweight. Do the Dew and it will do you!

Good for you !

The world does look better when you take off the ‘cole-bottle’ glasses.

Try SKI instead, immortalized by the Kentucky Headhunters, or Sun-Drop.

the usurper obama has a very close commie ally sitting on the pepsi board of directors. I have given up the crap also.

I’ve always liked Coke best of all, but sometimes you just *think* you need a Dew.

I’ve been drinking more coffee and Coke. But I also like RC and the Wal-Mart, Aldi’s and Dollar General store brands for variety.

I drink tea during the work week, as it's said to be an antioxidant.

I don’t drink regular or diet soda. Both are terrible for you. I felt great after I got over that addiction. Plus, water is free!

I don't drink soda anymore, but if I was you I'll check to see where those brands are bottled or canned and make sure they aren't bottled or canned in the same factory as Pepsi.

Be careful with the tea. It’s high in oxalates which form kidney stones. I know.

It's also high in oxalates which form kidney stones. Be careful how much you drink. Or, at least drink a gallon of water a day to flush them out like my Urologist wants me to do.

You would have absolutely hated living in DC last winter around inauguration time. The Metro stations were plastered with all kinds of O tributes (that I don’t remember for any of his predecessors), including untold numbers of Pepsi/Obama logos.

At 64, the last time I bought any Pepsi products was when I was about 12-years-old. They are too sweet.

I've been a Coca Cola fan most of my life, but when they went to over $3.00 for a 12-pack, I switch to "Big K" colas from Kroger...best thing I ever did. Less than $2 a twelve pack and I really like the taste of them better than Coke.

Many stores have their own brands that are good substitutes for "the real thing" and a heck of a lot cheaper.

Pepsi can just take a walk with obama, off into oblivion...they'll always be remembered as the soft drink company that supported communism and the demise of the United States. F***'em

Pepsi is a perfect kind of product to identify with the Obama administration - fizzy when just poured, but flat after sitting in the glass awhile. And of no nutritional value whatsoever. Finally, it is easy to end the addiction - you just stop drinking and move on.

Five 16 oz bottles? Wow, better cut back on the caffine.
Coke is the drink for me. One bottle in the morning...one at night.
Little known fact,drinks like Mt Dew, Pepsi and Coke help cause Kidney stones. I had a couple of these devils and they aint fun. Drink lots of water between those Dews.

Dew has not been the same since they took the fruit bits out of it...and went to HFCS over sugar.

Anyone else remember when Dew had the little bits of actual fruit in it?

Guess I was way ahead of my time. I quit drinking Pepsi when they signed Michael Jackson as a spokesgeek.

I thought that carbonation in drinks was bad for your bones anyway.

I’m actually drinking more water and various teas . . . LOVE Darjeeling . . . and, if I add a sweetener, as I do with Chai, I’m using a 1/2 packet of Truvia. When I go out, I drink unsweetened tea . . . after the first mouthful, I can drink it unsweetened.

I gave up the carbonated drinks to go on my Alternate Day Diet.

I have been a Pepsi freak for years and tried to wean myself off it cause when I took the cans back to the store, it would be about 250 cans and standing at the machines that only work when they want to, I was determined to leave Pepsi...Started substituding Snapple for pepsi, got down to one or 2 cans a day instead of 5 or 6.

That worked for about 3 months now I am back on lots of pepsi and the snapple sits in the refrig....SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME...:O(

I don't care for carbonated drinks and the only one I ever drink is Diet-Rite because it is made with Splenda. I won't touch anything with Aspartame. I usually only drink a mixture of water and Diet Green Tea (also made with Splenda). I hate water, so I mix it half & half with the Arizona Green tea. That way I don't get too much of the Splenda and the drink tastes good. Healthy all around. I do drink one cup of coffee in the morning.

Oh, I meant to ask, does Pepsi really have that logo on their bottles? I've never seen it, but then I don't buy Pepsi.

Get off the stuff granny. It will kill you. Drink the Arizona Green Tea and it will break the habit. It comes either with honey or Splenda for sweetener.

I’d have to try the one with honey, artifical sweetners leave an after taste with me...read an article about it once and there is a certain % of people that get that aftertaste, cannot do anything diet...but will try the one with honey......always open to suggestions thanks...

I never could use the aspartame sweeteners either. Just plain yuky. Then I tried Splenda and it does not leave that aftertaste. In my coffee, I like it better than sugar. The Arizona Green Tea with Honey and Ginsing is good. I buy it by the gallon jug. Drink it over ice. Right now I’m using the diet jug; trying to lose weight. The first time I tried the Green tea I didn’t like the taste, but I kept drinking it because I was on a diet. Before long I realized that it wa the only thing I wanted to drink.

I think you will see the difference. It is made from sugar and does not have that chemical taste. Try it in your coffee. I like it better than sugar because it is not sticky sweet.
