With the low-carb craze sweeping the nation, it was only a matter of time before the world's largest soft drink companies jumped on the bandwagon. Coca-Cola’s low-carb option, C2, is already in stores. It offers great flavor with half the carbohydrates and half of the calories.
Pepsi Cola will be launching its version of a low-carb cola tomorrow. It's called Pepsi Edge and it’s already in local stores.
Clinical dietician, Cheryl Martin of the Ingham Regional Medical Center says it is not the carbohydrates that matter, it’s the calories. She says the fact that the sodas have half the calories is a step in the right direction.
We did our own taste test in downtown Lansing. Most people could notice a small difference between the regular and the low-carb options, but many said they would drink either the C2 or the Pepsi Edge.
In the ultimate challenge, Pepsi Edge beat C2 when three out of four people choose Pepsi Edge in a blind taste test.
