PepsiCo (PEP +0.6%) launches a new soda in Australia that uses stevia for the first time as a natural sweetener. Pepsi Next will contain some sugar, but the company will be sure to boast that the new product for the nation contains 30% less calories than regular Pepsi. For now, the company doesn't plan to use stevia in its U.S.-version of Pepsi Next.

    Reuters is reporting that "While in New York Mrs. Obama met with Mayor Bloomberg and they agreed that once the ban on large sodas has been habituated 'by the masses, we'll roll out the asparagus soda and mandate only asparagus and the new refried-bean sodas will be allowed to be sold in the city's movie houses.'"
