Tonight on my lunch break I made a run to Kroger's because they have their bottled pop on sale. I usually take a couple of bottles to work because it's cheaper than buying it out of the machine. I actually thought the coke was on sale and would have preferred the Diet Coke because it's easier on my stomach, but when I got there I found Diet Pepsi is actually what they have on sale four six pack of 24 oz bottles for eleven dollars through Wednesday. In looking for my Diet Pepsi to buy I almost didn't recognize it. The new bottle as you see above is nothing like the old one. It seems that Pepsi has a new look. One that almost makes me want to toss my cookies. I understand their thought process was to go back to basics and to make the moon like circle seem as if it is a face with a smile. They figure simple is better. I think they figured wrong. I hate this new look and found myself wondering if I really wanted to spend money on what I thought was a hideous looking bottle. Then I thought don't be silly it's the taste that matters not the look. I wonder how many people will turn it down for looks though. I also wonder if it is just me or if others think this is absolutely ugly. I also found myself wondering what went through the minds of the people who came up with it and with the people who looked at it and thought it was a good idea. Either way, I hate it! What do you think? Good or bad?
PS... These pictures of the bottles look a lot better than the actual bottles do.. just so you can brace yourself when you see them in the stores.
