Pepsi Sells Bottled Tap Water As Aquafina

WE are fools!

NEW YORK (CNN) — Pepsi-Cola announced Friday that the labels of its Aquafina brand bottled water will be changed to make it clear the product is tap water.

The new bottles will say, “The Aquafina in this bottle is purified water that originates from a public water source,” or something similar, Pepsi-Cola North America spokeswoman Nicole Bradley told CNN.

The bottles are currently labeled: “Bottled at the source P.W.S.” Americans spent about $2.17 billion on Aquafina last year, according to Beverage Digest, an independent company that tracks the global beverage industry. The U.S. bottled water business in 2006 totaled roughly $15 billion, it said.

P.W.S. will appear on each bottle. “Public water source.” Not Public Water Scam. Ok.

Dasani which is owned by Coca-Cola is next.

Coke said, “We don’t believe that consumers are confused about the source of Dasani water. The label clearly states that it is purified water.”
