Pepsi overtakes Diet Coke as US soda sales slide
Friday, 27 March 2015 - 16:03
Pepsi outsold Diet Coke last year to become the second most popular carbonated drink in the US, as health-conscious consumers continued to shun products with artificial sweeteners.
Coca-Cola maintained the top-spot, but sales of its sugar-free alternative fell by 6.6%.
Diet Pepsi sales fell by more than 5%.
Nonetheless, both companies posted a modest increase in overall sales in 2014.
Once a common sight on dining tables across the country, fizzy drinks have fallen out of favour in the US over the past decade.
