SPOTTED: Pepsi Zero Sugar with New Improved Taste (2023)

I find absolutely nothing wrong with the old Pepsi Zero Sugar, much like I found nothing wrong with Pepsi Zero. What is up with Big Cola tweaking perfectly fine formulas? (Spotted by Robbie at Walmart.)

  1. If Pepsi found a way to keep their drinks from going flat so quickly, that would be a worthy improvement to their products.

  2. I was an avid Diet Pepsi Wild Cherry drinker then it suddenly disappeared in 2021; all I could find was Pepsi Zero sugar cherry but I refused to buy it because of the caffeine and ginseng which I found was just rebranded Pepsi max. I’m sure they lost a lot of customers because of this. This new version has no ginseng and the caffeine content has been lowered to match the other cola products. Now I just need the new cherry version…

      1. I’d beg to differ with Diet Dr. Pepper. I’ve tried Dr. Pepper Zero Sugar and it was gross and tasted flat.

  3. Guh…all of these never-ending reformulations/rebrandings/name changes make me much more annoyed than excited about yet another rollout.

  4. This “new improved taste” is disgusting! It’s flat. No carbonation whatsoever. The taste is bland. Pepsi Zero Sugar was my GO TO but they blew it. Back to Diet Pepsi now. Pray to God they don’t change that!!

    1. So disappointed with this change! I was a Pepsi Zero addict almost—friends laughed and said I must have Velcro in my hand as a Pepsi Zero was always there. I ‘ve tried the “new-improved “ version and it doesn’t seem to have same carbonation and is definitely too sweet. Overall, not a bad taste, but not good, either, so I’ll not being buying anymore. As soon as I get through my last 2 12-pks , I’m done! I’ve already given one 12-pk away. I loved Pepsi Zero and don’t understand WHY it needed to be changed. This is just so disappointing to me and I’m sure many, many others.

    2. So disgustingly sweet I can’t take it in the mouth. I returned 4 cases to the store.

  5. I wish they would have left pepsi zero the way it was . It was my favorite drink by far and now it taste just like Diet Pepsi ???. I have never been a coke fan but from now on I will be buying Coke Zero until u bring back the old flavor. I can’t believe u ruined a good drink.

  6. New Pepsi improved taste diet equals New Coke. BIG mistake. Lame is the best I can do. Disgusting and disappointing is more apt. Bring back Pepsi Max or just get out of the business. I’m from near New Bern; but come on folks. Even my loyalty can’t cover rubbish.

    “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

  7. The new improved Pepsi Zero Sugar is anything but improved. I agree with another poster who said it is too sweet and the carbonation is lacking. I noticed one thing in particular. I have personally never liked caffeine-free colas. They have a distinctly negative taste to me and I can identify one even blindfolded. There are elements in this new and improved Pepsi Zero Sugar that reminds me of caffeine-free drinks. The sweetness and lack of fizz has unfortunately made me an ex-Pepsi Zero Sugar drinker, which makes me sad. Now I have to find something new to replace it as my go-to soda. I wish they had left a good product alone.
