{Pepsi Special} Soda with Slimming Power

And just when you think you’ve heard it all something new comes along — I had to share this with you guys!  Pepsi-Cola in Japan has released a  new fiber infused drink that contains dextrin, a fiber that distributor Suntory claims helps to reduce fat levels.   The new drink is called “Pepsi Special.”

Ummmm, ok.

Soft drink manufacturers in the United States have come under a lot of pressure the last few years as schools, cities, government officials and everyone else attacks their products.  Is “Pepsi Special” the answer to Mayor Bloomberg leaving New Yorkers alone and letting them have a soda?  I’m going to go with no.  Even if this item came to the United States, my guess is that it would be met with cynicism like only American’s can provide.  What’s next pizza that lowers cholesterol?

We all have to learn to have control over what we eat and drink and with exercise, we’ll be fine.   Now does this mean I’m giving up my other fiber packed drinks?  Not quite. . . .don’t judge, they’re good post workout!
