Bring Back Crystal Pepsi

Will they bring back Crystal Pepsi already? I'm starting to be tempted by 15 year old cans on eBay. At least Coca Cola still makes Tab.

I'm still waiting for 7UP Gold to make a comeback. That was some good stuff.

You could always switch to the Tropical Pepsi (WTF were they thinking?)

Pepsi made some really bad sodas. Fire and Ice (red and blue pepsi). Good old Pepsi Blue. Terrible. The fore-mentioned Pepsi Tropical. Was there a Pepsi clear? or was that the Crystal? I still have some Cool Cans somewhere.

i loved that SNL skit, had to youtube it just for kicks.

as far as pepsi blue, i found you could mix that with whatever booze you wante ie. vodka, whiskey, etc, and it always tasted like crappy blue sugar water regardless of the strength of the mix.

I loved 7up Gold back in 1988. The next best thing is Vernor's. 7up bought out Vernor's so now I guess they have no interest in marketing the same sort of thing as 7up Gold anymore. Vernor's is super spicy, it takes a little getting used to, but very refreshing.

I had some Pepsi Throwback today. It's a little hard to find, as stores don't seem to carry much of it. To me, it had a much more substantial presence than normal Pepsi. I don't know, but I normally get a kind of sharp feeling from normal Pepsi. Throwback Pepsi seemed to be much more bold to me, but lacking those sharp notes. To me, that's a good thing. It doesn't seem to hold carbonation as well though, so it's probably best if you drink it quickly. It's still carbonated after a bit, but it just tastes a bit flat. Overall, I prefer the Throwback.

And no, it's not nostalgia for me. I was born too late to drink the old Pepsi, and I'm not young enough that I grew up drinking all kinds of these weird flavored drinks (using stuff like guarana, monkey balls, or whatever they use). When I was growing up, it was Tab vs RC vs Pepsi vs Coke. I will say that I have always enjoyed older styles of soda though, like sasparillas, root beers, etc...

Since they taste the same, you could just drink a regular Pepsi and close your eyes and pretend it's clear.

I have a CO2 bottle, Reg, hose to the bottle (Soda bottle), fill with ice water, Burp the extra air out, Add CO2 til full, swish bottle, bottle becomes soft(lower presure, not leaking out), repete. But still a light fizz. So found a Soda Club tried that, real nice good and Fuzzy. But what am I doing wrong? Help!

the one that stands out to me the most was the new Coke. all they did was introduce something with a not so good flavor so they could take original Coke of the market with the real sugar in it only to say yea the New Coke is not so good and bring back the original Coke with high fructose corn syrup :(

Crystal Pepsi was the best. Has anyone here tried Pepsi Green? I just tried it today and it's nasty as hell.
