Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi and Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi will also make the switch, which the company said is in response to customer complaints about aspartame. The change also comes amid a sales drop for the diet drinks. Sucralose is the same artificial sweetener that’s typically in yellow packets, branded Splenda, while aspartame is the artificial sweetener usually in blue packets, branded as Equal or NutraSweet.

Artificial sweeteners have been the subject of bad press, largely due to a s study linking them to cancer in lab rats.
