Pepsi

(owns Gatorade, Soda Stream, Quaker Oats, Mountain Dew, Tropicana, Sabra hummus, Aunt Jemima, Naked Juice, Aquafina, Kevita Kombucha , GameFuel, and endless other products)

 

Boycott this far 'woke' company

 

THE BAD:

Left-wing CEO, Indra Nooyi said that people were in mourning after the 2016 election.

 

Pepsi began severing ties with the Washington Redskins and even asked others to sever ties because the sports team would not change their name.

 

Pepsi promoted a hate video of Tucker Carlson mispronouncing Kamala Harris' name, but felt no need to address Joe Biden's mispronunciation of her name.

 

Pepsi gave rabid Trump-hater, Snoop Dog a starring role in their Soda Stream commercial.

 

Pepsi employees and PAC's donated 42% more to Democrats than Republicans in 2020.

 

Gatorade donated $500,000 to various groups including the ACLU and the violent Marxist group Black Lives Matter.

 

THE GOOD:

Pepsi has no redeeming qualities.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Avoid buying any Pepsi and Coca Cola owned products that you can. Unfortunately, Pepsi and Coke have a virtual monopoly on drinks and junk food. But, one Pepsi product that Pepsi and Coke don't have a virtual monopoly on, is sparkling water makers.

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

 

1. Discover a new cola. If you're a Pepsi addict, then challenge yourself to stop drinking Pepsi for 2 to 4 weeks!

 

2. Stop drinking or scale back sugary soda. Wean yourself off, by drinking 0 calorie carbonated soda such as Waterloo or LaCroix -- but not Bubly, which is owned by Pepsi, or AHA, which is owned by Coke. In short, sugar gets stored as fat! You gain weight when you take in more calories than your body needs, and sugary drinks contain a lot of calories. You are more likely to become diabetic if you are overweight.

 

3. Boycotting Soda Stream is easy! We recommend KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker because KitchenAid is owned by Whirpool, one of our favorite companies. Otherwise there's other brands.
