The Blunders of Soda – Crystal Pepsi

As I live in an area with no apparent understanding that Lime Pepsi is absolutely wonderful, I’m forced instead to merely quietly long for it.  You know what I don’t long for?  The atrocity that was Crystal Pepsi.  It was Crystal Pepsi that cemented my sick need to try all the new flavors of soda, no matter how ridiculous just so I could fathom the development process.

I’m curious:  Who were the tongueless mutants they taste tested this horror upon that could manage to give it a thumbs up?  Sure it’s not the nightmare misstep that was New Coke, but Crystal Pepsi had about as much appeal as drinking partially diluted windshield wiper fluid.

Thanks to DHADM for the find.

    I somehow feel cheated for not experiencing the awfulness others have described when drinking crystal Pepsi, since I never actually tried it.  Or New Coke, for that matter.  *sigh* My life seems somehow less complete now.

    I, for one, thought it was deeliiciioouus. I guess it IS too much to ask for the rest of the populus to have a palette as sensitive as mine own to enjoy such an amazing beverage. It was a good thing I got rid of all of my wine and filled my wine celler with bottles of this drink.If not, I would have been quite depressed indeed when I found out about Crystal Pepsi’s termination. Did I mention that my wine/Crystal Pepsi celler is 40 SQUARE ACRES?! I believe I just have. *Giggle*
