There are a lot of people who love soft drinks but are trying to cut back the amount of sugar that they are consuming. Pepsi Max is known as Pepsi Zero Sugar. This means that it will have the taste of Pepsi minus all the sugar that you will normally associate with carbonated drinks. When you say Diet Pepsi, this still comes with sugar but in fewer amounts as compared to regular Pepsi. There are some people who will be able to take the taste of Pepsi Max, which is now called Pepsi Zero Sugar, but there are also some who say that they do not like the artificial sweeteners that are placed in order to mimic the taste of sugar.
Business is what makes a difference in this world, may that be for good or bad and that's what I love about that.

Although these two products are from the same company, there are still some differences between the two, especially when you compare some of the materials that make up their content. Diet Pepsi is the older of the two who have been around since 1964, whereas Pepsi Max was introduced in 1993 to serve as an alternative to the former. Since there are about three main types of Pepsi Max in the market, their taste actually depends on what makes up each type. For instance, Pepsi Max Punch, which is a type of Pepsi Max, has ginger and cinnamon as part of its ingredients. Pepsi Max Twist contains lime. Pepsi Max Cappuccino contains coffee.
As for Diet Pepsi, its common types or variants are Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi, Diet Pepsi Lemon Twist, and Diet Pepsi Lime Twist. Another difference between the two is that Pepsi Max has a higher calorie compared to Diet Pepsi. Also, Pepsi Max has higher caffeine content compared to Diet Pepsi.
