Pepsi Was Never Going to Pop the Question to SodaStream

PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP  ) was quick to deny Thursday's published story out of Israel that it was offering $2 billion to acquire SodaStream (NASDAQ: SODA  ) . 

Pepsi stock has some growth concerns these days, but this certainly isn't the way to kickstart that growth if it means cannibalizing its larger soft drink category and angering bottlers. However, there's an even bigger reason that Pepsi and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) won't buy the company behind the fast-growing carbonated beverage maker. 

In this video, longtime Fool contributor Rick Munarriz explains why Pepsi -- and Coke, for that matter -- will never seek a carbonated boost through SodaStream.

    Pepsi and Coke could steal a share of their market if they would offer their syrups to use with a SodaStream. From the reviews I read their cola and Mt Dew copycat flovors are terrible.
