Crystal Clear Pepsi

Heard they brought this back for a limited time this summer. Anyone know who carries it?

I saw it at my local grocery store (HEB). Didn't buy any though.

Interesting web app. Unfortunately I know that several of the places they mentioned definitely do not have it, as I go to those regularly. But I will check out a few of the others.

I saw it at 7-11. Last time I saw it on the shelf I think Zima was being sold. Lol

Your beverage choices change by the day and sometimes by the hour and PepsiCo is there for you every sip of the way.

Why do they keep coming out with (and retreading) bad Pepsi products?

(1) Free publicity. The media loves to cover these "news" press releases.
(2) Shelf space. The more product shelf space the less room for competition. (The "big boys" pretty much control the shelf space of the major supermarkets.)
(3) Even if they sell XX million units and call it a "failure" it is XX million units that they sold (not at a loss) and XX million units of CocaBarfa that you didn't buy.

I remember the first time they marketed that stuff. Didn't like it then.

I can't see where you are located from my phone, buy in the PNW, they have it at Fred Meyer and a lot of other places. I bought some a few weeks ago right when it came out. I actually like it. I rarely drink soda so it's a nice, more subtle flavor. Not that I would make a habit of it, but it was okay for once in a while.

I saw it at my local grocery store earlier this week. IIRC, I also found it at Wal-Mart.

Has anyone ever tasted it? It's supposed to taste identical to original Pepsi.

It didn't (at least the stuff in the 90s didn't). It was like a foul cross between Dr. Pepper and bubble gum. Did. Not. Work.

That sounds disgusting.

They are all bad in my book.

Pepsi just tastes too sweet and goes flat very quickly. I don't drink soda much but when I do I would like it to keep its carbonation.
