Morning Start: Pepsi A.M.

Your morning start for Thursday, Jan. 26

Good morning OK! Let’s get your Thursday started!

Fun Fact: In 1989, PepsiCo test-marketed Pepsi A.M., a soda for people to have in the morning because it has 25 per cent more caffeine, to compete against coffee. A diet version was also made that was only one calorie. They were discontinued the next year.
