No, and why would I want to?

That site is a freakin' huge rip off. $16 for a 12 pack of Coke made with sugar rather than corn syrup. Or I can go to Costco, find the Coca Cola that says hecho en Mexico and buy it for $3 a twelve pack.

wtf is Josta?

Josta was a soft drink brand that was produced by PepsiCo. Josta's flavor had been described as predominately fruity, with a hint of spice and a touch of the key ingredient guaraná. It was marketed as a "high-energy drink" with guaraná and caffeine.

Josta was introduced in 1995, but PepsiCo pulled the drink from its lineup due to a change in corporate strategy in 1999

I mercifully forgot about Josta.

Thank you sooooooooooooo much for bringing those demons back to light, subby.

Aw. I used to love that stuff as a teenager. It was my favorite soda, and I was bummed when they got rid of it. Bawls tastes better, though, so meh.

Oh. And if we're bringing something back, I pick Surge.

No, Vault is not the same.

I actually have a few bottles of that stuff.

I think they should bring back Crystal Pepsi as a "throwback."
 
2010-04-24 5:54:15 PM  
Personally, I'd love to see the return of Mr. Pibb proper.

Pibb Xtra just ain't the stuff. I don't buy that it's super-radical to the xtreme.
 
2010-04-24 6:00:13 PM  
I do remember Josta and would not even pay $2.50 for it. It was un ultra caffeinated, overly sweet, tastes like ass drink.
 
2010-04-24 6:01:24 PM  
However, I would pick up some 7-Up Gold. I LOVED that stuff.

Wasn't it loaded with Guarana? I remember going through 2 or 3 cans in a day.
 
2010-04-24 7:42:56 PM  
Josta was disgusting.

ArkAngel: Bring this back


THAT was even MORE disgusting!
 
2010-04-24 7:45:02 PM  
I'm looking at these prices, by the way, and I want to murder myself for not investing in a soda-heavy portfolio.

Let me know when I can get some OK soda.

I remember buying some Josta when it first came out. I thought, "Huh, so that's what guarana tastes like". Think guava fruit with a hint of strawberry. So, it was cola with that flavor added. Totally unremarkable.

The advertising revolved around the belief among South Americans (unspecified as to the nationality) considered guarana fruit to be an aphrodisiac.

Ahhhh...Cola.

We built out an old Double Cola bottling plant for our office...it was JUST featured on ThisAintNoDisco...Farkers mind to help a fellow farker out who is trying to avoid entirely pissing away a perfectly good Saturday night doing an rfp...would you run over and rate (5 stars preferably) our space (Access Advertising and PR) at

Funny thing is there's a cola sold in Puerto Rico called Ok! Totally different stuff but there you have it.
 
2010-04-24 7:56:21 PM  

try fect taa daa: clearly canadian was good. never realized they killed it.


i'd give a kidney or a testicle to get some of that stuff.

supposedly, it's on it's way back.

barely remember surge, don't remember josta, but i too would love to see crystal pepsi make a return.

snapple white tea is another rare commodity round these parts. the nectarine i can dig around for, but WTF happened to the green apple flavor?!

anyone remember hy-5? use to LOVE that stuff too.

Naman: To hell with Josta, really. I want New York Seltzer back!


I loved New York Seltzer. It was way more carbonated than any other drink. My favorite was the cream soda. Other cream sodas are too sweet.

I actually found a six pack of it about 2 years ago at a Big Lots. I was excited, opened a bottle, drank a mouthful, and spit it out. In my excitement I hadn't noticed it was diet. And not nutrasweet diet, but saccharin. That stuff tastes like motor oil mixed with roach poison. I don't see how anyone can drink saccharin.

I liked $30 for a 12- of Pepsi throwback which I still find in stores from time to time, and $12 for Grape Crush, which I always have on hand.

If this works I'm going to starts selling Dublin Dr Pepper and Mexican Coke online.
 
2010-04-24 8:04:03 PM  
God, I miss Crystal Pepsi, DnL, Clearly Canadian (especially the Cherry flavor) and 7up Gold!
Josta and Surge were the 90's answer to Jolt Cola.
 
2010-04-24 8:04:35 PM  
When I was in high school, Pepsi came and handed out tons of free Josta. Most of us took a drink and spit it out, but one guy collected every can he could get his hands on. We asked him how he could drink the stuff, but all he said was "Tastes, like piss, but it's pop."

This was so good. I worked at coca cola at the bottling plant when they discontinued it. I worked in the "recoup" area of the plant, so we would receive, among other things, discontinued product to be disposed of. Well I disposed of it by taking as much of it home as I could.

/Cool Story Bro!

Oh man...I remember that stuff. Tasted like someone carbonated Dimetapp cough syrup, but that shiat was my jam in 8th grade.

/I'd buy a bottle if it was still around
//not for $250 though
