You can’t name the top 50 beverage drinks in the world and not have Pepsi on there.
It’s almost impossible if you ask me because these guys have been around for more than 50 years.
According to Wikipedia Pepsi is a carbonated soft drink and it was first introduced into the market in 1893.
It was rebranded to just Pepsi in the 20th century, so as you can see these guys have been around for quite some time, right?
