Hey, soda drinkers, listen up! Word on the street is that Diet Pepsi may be getting a formulation makeover. Don't worry -- it doesn't sound as out there as New Coke or Pepsi Clear. Instead, they're reportedly changing the soft drink's sweetener ahead of a major rebranding for next month.

I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case, given the bad rap they've acquired in the past few years.
