NEW YORK (AP) – Americans are cutting back on both regular soda and diet soda. So Dr Pepper is testing something in between, with natural sweeteners.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group said Wednesday that it plans to test versions of its sodas this year that have about 60 calories a can. That’s less than half the 150 calories in a can of regular Dr Pepper, but more than the 0 calories in the diet version.

The sodas would use sugar and stevia, rather than the artificial sweeteners used in traditional diet sodas or the high-fructose corn syrup used in most regular soda.

The beverage industry is trying to figure out ways to stop a years-long decline in overall U.S. soda consumption.
