NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Diet Pepsi is tweaking its formula to stay sweet a little longer.
PepsiCo Inc. says it's testing a new mix of artificial sweeteners that lets the soda keep its taste for a longer period of time. The problem is that the current sweetener used in the soda -- aspartame -- loses its potency faster than high fructose corn syrup, the sweetener that's used in most regular sodas.
Pepsi officials says the new version is being tested now and could be released as early as next year.
