    Simply called Pepsi Special, the caffeinated soft drink has the added ingredient dextrin, a natural water-soluble dietary fiber derived from potatoes. Japanese commercials touting the products effectiveness for weight loss even go as far as to ask, Why choose between a hamburger and a slice of pizza? If you choose Pepsi Special, you can have both! But does it work? Pepsi claims that dextrin slows the absorption of fat in the body by binding with it and eliminating it as waste, not reserving it as empty calories.

    Well this is a welcome addition for the holidays! Even though it contains dextrin,which acts like Olestra, it's deemed to be safe. lol

      I remember the lays chips with olestra that sent
      running for the bathroom. Just cut out the sodas all together, lose weight and not feel like you're losing your insides!

        I know someone who ate those chips for colon cleansing. They were a little more potent than she expected....

          Mmm. Olestra chips and Pepsi Special.
          Sounds like the perfect balanced meal to me.

    Now that's what we all need! 

    More artificial chemicals introduced into our body, this time to allow us to continue overeating without paying the price for it.  Great! sad

      It amazes me how much money people spend on tricks to lose weight, when all it takes is simply taking in less calories than what your body needs and exercising. But I'm sure Pepsi will suck in a lot of stupid people with this.

    I wish they would bring back cyclamate. I mean, what's a little cancer among friends...

        I just discovered that they're still selling that stuff in the UK apparently. Someone needs to poke them with a stick over there...
