Here’s Absolutely Everything You Can’t Eat If You Boycott Pepsi

People got a little pissed at Pepsi’s Diet Woke commercial, where Kendall Jenner brought about world peace with nothing more than a sexy walk and a can of Pepsi.

While boycotting Kendall Jenner is easy, things get a little more complicated should you decide to boycott Pepsi.

PepsiCo’s reach is pretty deep and they own products that you probably wouldn’t even think were associated with the brand.

Let’s start with the big names such as Pepsi-Cola, Lay’s, Tropicana, Quaker, and Gatorade. All of these brands are global and household names that are all owned by PepsiCo.

Let’s dig into Yum Brands, which isn’t owned by Pepsi, but has a lifetime contract to carry Pepsi products. That’s why every time you walk into KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut or Long John Silver’s, they are exclusive Pepsi drink slangers.

Then they have the “Good for You” division, with brands that they deem healthier alternatives. These brands consist of several favorites such as Kevita, Naked Juice, Sabra Hummus, Aquafina, and Sunbites.

Then we get a little deeper with the “Better for You” PepsiCo division, with healthy-ish brands such as SoBe, Stacy’s Peta Chips, Alvalle Juice, Grain Waves Chips, and Propel Water.

The “Fun for You” division has a lot of notable names such as Cheetos, Doritos, Mtn Dew, Fritos, Tostitos, and the most unlikely item of all, the Starbucks Ready-to-Go beverages.

That’s a lot of brands to memorize. Even if you tried your hardest, you’d probably accidentally eat or drink something Pepsi related. It’s not impossible though, and if that commercial really pissed you off, give it a shot, player.


Ocean Spray Hits the Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot Center is getting a special treat from the folks over at Ocean Spray. The cranberry purveyors are showcasing a sight that most people rarely get to encounter — a cranberry bog.

Ocean Spray will be featuring Disney cast members exhibiting the site filled with over 1500 lbs of cranberries in Lake Buena Vista for Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival spanning from September 30 to November 13. On-site kiosks will be featuring Ocean Spray dried cranberries called Craisins.

The real show, however, goes on October 11 where Chef Ming Tsai of Simply Ming will be making a special appearance to show the culinary versatility of cranberries with a cooking demonstration at the  World Showcase at Epcot.

Ocean Spray’s cranberry bog is just one of many of the healthier alternative food exhibits at Disney World’s Food and Wine Festival this Fall.
