Summary
Carbonated soft drinks face an increasingly hostile environment, with consumer health concerns continuing to pressure sales across the board. This includes the diet segment, with consumers being lost to non-soda categories both on health grounds and due to perceptions that diet sodas are experientially inferior to their full-calorie siblings. This has led a number of major producers to experiment with so-called mid-calorie sodas, which offer a taste/flavor experience closer to the original full-calorie product but with a much reduced (but not zero) calorie count. Results to date have been mixed, however, showing a number of weaknesses in the concept.

Key Findings
Although not a failure in the fullest sense of the word, TEN has not been the all-out success that Dr Peppers investment in the brand suggested the company hoped it would be. Midor low-calorie soft drinks sit in an uncomfortable position between the options consumers are most likely to choose zero-calorie or the standard product.

The audience for low to mid-calorie soft drinks like the TEN range may be a transitory one; companies rely on capturing sales from those looking for lower calories but not satisfied by diet soft drinks tastes. However, those consumers are still likely to migrate to zero-calorie drinks or ultimately out of the perceived unhealthy category altogether.

As the original marketing campaign for TEN demonstrated, poorly judged demographic clichés can be very damaging to a products chances, and hurt the overall umbrella brand. It can call into question the strategic decision-making of the brand owner and the values it may (or may not) have as a business.
