This is the second "batch" of Pepsi that has an abnormal taste / aftertaste.The first five 12 packs has the identifier 0144HS02075, use by date 11 09 2015.
the current batch of 5 12 packs has the identifier 0133hs02075, same use by date. The previous "good" product has the ID 0913hs01215, dated Oct 26 2015.
I was able to return the first 5 for an exchange of "good" product (10 26 2015). Has the formula changed in any way? The product has such a foul taste that if I am unable to find good tasting batches, I will switch to another brand.
I have consumed pepsi and Pepsi only since I was able to make my own purchases - about 40 years ago and i prefer not to switch.I usually buy about 7 12 packs a week.

Purchased five twelve packs yesterday (at Wal Mart on high way seventy one in Greenwood Ar). Product has a foul aftertaste almost like artificial sweetener. i contacted the Pepsi Cola bottling plant in Fort Smith Arkansas to check if the "formula" had changed recently. The pleasant sounding lady at the switch board indicated that, no, the formula had not changed and she suggested that I return the product to Wal mart for a refund.
I drink quite a bit every day so I know what it's supposed to taste like.
I am returning all five twelve packs for a refund.
