    I think everyone remembers Crystal Pepsi.

    What a great novel concept.

    Clear.

    Non Caffinated (right?)

    supposed to taste like cola....but didn't really.


    But Man! It was cool.

    I wish I had me a bottle, that'd just be a cool thing to keep.


    So, who else misses Crystal Pepsi....or what other flashes in the pan do you miss?

  13. i hope pepsi comes out with that pepsi spice again...
     
  14. Anybody ever try Pepsi Blue? It was on the market for like a month before the Pepsi executives found out it tasted like carbonated anti-freeze. Talk about short lived. Though I think they might be trying to resell it as Mountian Dew: Baja Blast.

    didn't one of our own appear in the ad for pepsi blue?

    the ad with the monks... and then there was a band that was totally rockin', then there's a close up of a guy with strange hair?



    i also loved me some surge. the last time i saw it was at universal studio's islands of adventure. drinking surge out of a 32 oz. hulk cub just makes sense.

    How in the hell did surge tank?

    I think everyone I knew drank surge


    ...or injected it directly into major arteries.

    Seriously, everyone loved that stuff, but I bet it turned out that it gave people some weird disease and in a couple years our whole generation is going to break out with something terrible.

    On a lighter note I actually found a 2liter hiding way back in my pantry about a year ago. I was so excited. I opened it up and it didn't even make a fizzing noise. It was almost as flat as the time the carbonators broke in the soda fountain in he cafe at school.
