Today, Eva Longoria, actress and star of the hit TV show, Desperate Housewives, surprised New Yorkers with a first taste of new Pepsi NEXT, which, according to PepsiCo, is the first cola to deliver real cola taste with 60% less sugar than Pepsi-Cola.

To continue fueling the “Drink it to Believe it” excitement, actress and star of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Paula Patton, will bring Pepsi NEXT to Los Angeles fans on Monday, April 9, the company further announced.

“When it comes to Pepsi NEXT, tasting is believing,” said Angelique Krembs, Vice President TM Pepsi Marketing. “Whether it’s partnering with Eva and Paula to serve up free sips, sampling at local Walmart Supercenter stores across the country or inviting fans to “try” Pepsi NEXT online, it’s all about encouraging a first taste. We know that once cola lovers taste Pepsi NEXT, they’ll believe real cola flavor with 60% less sugar than Pepsi-Cola is possible.
