Went to drink my cold unopened pepsi. Took a big sip and had this nasty after taste of mold!

I did not brush my teeth prior to drinking, nor did I eat anything that would have caused this. Now I am worried that I am going to get sick. The pepsi does not smell like anything other than pepsi. It just has an after taste of mold!

I have never had this happen before, I drink pepsi often. I really do not want to have to stop drinking my special treat Pepsi but I am scared this is going to happen again.

It is gross! This can was out of a 12 pack and the expiration date is January 26th 2015.

Monetary Loss: $7.

I have been drinking Pepsi for years. I drank Pepsi One until it was discontinued.

Lately every Pepsi max I try and drink has an bad taste to it. I even bought a Diet Pepsi out of vendor machine. Same bad taste.

I wonder if the changed something. I am thinking of changing to Coke.


coca cola tastes of mold too, depending on the last thing on the tongue. Noticed this often


it smelled like alcohol and it was a non opened bottle


11/18/17 - MOLD TASTE

mmmm, sure is refreshing...

This is why I like Coca Cola, might not have the great cocaine taste it once used too, but sure doesn't have mold.


I just found mold inside under and around the bottle top of a Pepsi real sugar ! I am highly allergic and have been having trouble with allergies the last few weeks and now makes me wonder if it is this causing it ! Have contacted the company with no replies !

I also get the moldy aftertaste. Similar to when I eat dried seal meat that's covered in green mold.

Infact the last five reviews are about the exact same thing.

There are lots of reviews about this lately. About the Pepsi going bad, maybe they changed their ingredients?
