Really amazing drink


This is the best drink possible and is healthier than regular coke because of the sugar we have been purchasing this for over 5 years now because there is no sugar

Purchased in October 2019 at Caltex Woolworths.

Why can’t I purchase Pepsi Max Vanilla?


Why can’t I purchase Pepsi Max Vanilla in Woolworths or Coles at Tuggerah NSW or Coles at Wyong NSW. My wife and I are big fans of this product and prefer it to the other Pepsi Max.

Purchased in September 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Pepsi Max is the Max in our house


Since the first time I tried it, about a year ago, Pepsi Max has supplanted most of the drinks in our household. It's refreshing, keeps me focused, and totally refreshes me.

Purchased in August 2019 at Woolworths Physical store for A$19.00.

Tastes like slightly sweetened water


Had to throw most of the case of 24 Pepsi Max cans away as they had lost nearly all flavour by June. They tasted like slightly sweetened fizzy water. Won't be buying these again.

Purchased in March 2019 for A$18.00.

Pepsi Max taste change Yuck


The last few cartons of Pepsi Max I have purchased April May 2019 tastes terrible.
If this is permanent Pepsi Co I certainly won’t be purchasing your product again
Disappointing taste. Please change it back

Purchased in April 2019 at Woolworths Physical store for A$24.95.

Gone away from Max as well


I have been drinking Pepsi Max for several years until now. My question was going to be have they changed the formula and reading some of these posts they have. I changed to Pepsi Max because i was I had an allergic reaction to Coke Zero, now I have the same reaction to Pepsi Max, so what ever you changed has resulted in the allergic reaction.. .. Sorry but lost another customer.

Dislike the taste of the new Pepsi max. Good way to kick my habit .


I thought my taste buds were deceiving me when i have had the last 2 cartons of Pepsi max. Unfortunately, I loved the stuff. However, the last two or three cartons i have over the last months have left me with a tinnie taste feel in the mouth as well. I thought it must of been me and i was going to write to Pepsi to see if they had changed the formulas or if it was possible the cartons had been stored incorrectly. I have seen on this forum that they have changed the formula. Good for me I guess. Now i may be able to kick the habit because i do not enjoy drinking it anymore. I will have to find something else. Sorry Pepsi but it wasn't broken you should have left the original alone

Purchased in February 2018 at Sydney Wide Chiropractic for A$32.00.

Pepsi Max - My Most Satisfying Drink in the Australian Outback


Over 12 years, annually, I have ridden 12,000 kms through the Australian Outback on my motorbike. Pepsi Max hits THE SPOT when I arrive at my overnight stops. Nothing else comes near it.

Pepsi Max Raspberry


I LOVE Pepsi Max, I buy cartons of it. But I bought a 10 pack of Pepsi Max Raspberry, and I'm struggling to finish it. It is horrible and disgusting. The best variation of Pepsi Max was Pepsi Max Lime.

Vanilla Pepsi Max weirds taste


Recent Vanilla Pepsi Max 1.25L (from Coles) doesn't taste the same. Has a weird after taste. The 2L (from Woolies) still taste the same. Are they manufactured at different plants? has anyone else noticed this and who do we contact about this.

Great taste


Loyal consumer of Pepsi Max, adding Vanilla is great: nice taste and feels like a ice cream sundae in my mouth. Well done.

original Pepsi Max GOOD Vanilla Pepsi MAX GOOD


Long time enjoyer of Pepsi Max ..my favorite drink and just discovered the newly brought out Pepsi Max vanilla (New to New Zealand or my area of New Zealand) it has a nice enticing light vanilla smell and a just right taste that is enjoyable to drink. I will buy vanilla as well as the original pepsi max ..both different ..both good.

This isn't a question.



Pepsi max is no longer the best taste why?

No answers


Pepsi max has changed over the last few weeks. Tasteless and flat. Disappointing for a 3 - 4
cans per day over 10 years. Checked the use by dates which are June and August this year. Any reason for this as I just can't drink it now?
