Sprite in the UK is getting an ingredients revamp, Coca-Cola announced last week, altering its recipe to include healthy sweetener stevia. The new formula will be made with a combo of stevia and sugar and Coca-Cola is exploring the possibility of altering the U.S. recipe as well. (The soda giant is rolling out a global anti-obesity campaign). But the new product will only erase 30% of the original calories from sugar so HuffPo wonders today - how much healthier will this new recipe be? And - is stevia in soft drinks the wave of the future when it comes to combat the obesity epidemic? Let us know what you think in the comments.

  1. Good, but not good enough. I'd like a 100% Stevia version, especially of Coke or Pepsi, with no Sugar or Aspartame
