In “let’s combine the worst of both worlds” news, PepsiCo has announced the upcoming launch of a “mid-calorie beverage” known as Pepsi NEXT , which will offer 60% less sugar and 60% fewer calories than regular Pepsi. Iowa and Wisconsin are scheduled to be the first two victims states to try the new carbonated concoction. Despite the forthcoming pomp and circumstance, this is far from a new concept. And, above all, it is yet another beverage chock-full of unhealthy chemicals.
