"Most of our customers have literally had their synapses fried by an over-abundance of selection in the soda aisle," Draper continued. "We feel like Crystal Pepsi can attract both nostalgic hipsters who will drink it ironically and the genuinely confused. It's a winning combination for us."

Hmm...let me just click the "About" link...

Q. Are your news stories 100% accurate?
A.
 Yes, because they are 100% satirical.

Fark Surge... as a former Coca Cola bottling employee, that shiat was a biatch to make. Dumping over a thousand pounds of maltodextrin per hour of production run, I was quite happy when they stopped making it.

I do miss Citra though.


Pissed at Coke for ending production on this:

Best diet soda EVER.

I loved it and of course they discontinued it. Just like Lays did with my all-time favorite potato chip:

t3knomanser: mamoru: Well, if 90s nostalgia isn't a thing, it ought to be. The 90s were pretty good for the most part.

You're just remembering the good parts. On the balance, the 90s sucked. Mind you, that applies to pretty much any decade.


I love the 90s (Class of 96')
However for every Pearl Jam: Ten, Soundgarden: Bad Motor Finger or Alice in Chains: Dirt
There were dozens of this type of schlock

Hyper color was a late '80s fad.

Anybody remember Zima?  It was a clear alcopop beverage made by Coors brewing company during the clear beverage craze of the 1990s.  It was marketed as a "manly alternative" to wine coolers for men who didn't like the taste of beer.  It was very successful for its first year, but to Coors' horror most of its' drinkers were 20-something women.  Then it became the butt of jokes by comedians by David Letterman who portrayed it as a sissy drink for girly men.  Coors stopped advertising it after that, but surprisingly it remained on store shelves for a decade before they quietly stopped selling it domestically.  Apparently you can still get it in Japan.

I never tried it because I was like 14 years old when it came out (I didn't have my first drink until I was 19. Late bloomer, I know).  But I've heard it was farking gross.

NobleHam: FirstNationalBastard: NobleHam: "Now"? Have you SEEN BuzzFeed?

Also, Dr. Pepper has nothing to do with Pepsi. Don't journalists even do Google searches anymore?

Actually, Coke and Pepsi both bottle Dr Pepper products, since Dr Pepper doesn't own it's own bottling works, and in some markets Coke and Pepsi still distribute the Dr Pepper stuff.

Yeah. Bottle. Which is basically just wage labor, there's no stake in the profits or creative control there. So saying Dr. Pepper is a Pepsi product is very different thing, though I guess not "nothing," so kudos on a technicality.. And "Dr. Pepper," even outside the U.S., is only distributed by Snapple although many of its other brands are distributed by either Coke or Pepsi.


Well, technically correct is the best kind of correct.

But I can see how someone who didn't do the 2 second wiki check would think Dr Pepper products were Pepsi, since they were in the same bottles as Pepsi products until Pepsi's recent redesign.

/at least, they were in my area.

WinoRhino: They did. You're drinking it. You just don't realize it.


No. I assume you're talking about the switch to corn syrup, but just no. Even if you buy that conspiracy theory, what you're drinking now is bastardized old coke, not New Coke.

Weird little bit of trivia, I was in some of the initial focus groups for what later turned out to be Crystal Pepsi.  I liked it, especially when they tweaked the formula and added more citrus.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Uh... satire tag snowed in?


We haven't had the Satire Tag here since about, uh, '83, when I was the only one who used it. And I stopped because I was tired of being stared at.

The product uses the same formulation as classic Pepsi, but in the final step a few drops of a special, commercial-grade bleach are added to remove all coloring. The clear soda will be available in lesser grocery stores and select convenience stores, primarily concentrated in low-income markets and the south.

An insidious plot to wipe out the bottom feeders? Thanks Obama

I was wondering if they were going to do this when all those stories came out last month about how the caramel coloring causes cancer.
