PepsiCo is bringing back the 1990s this summer with an eight-week release of Crystal Pepsi, one of the iconic beverages of that decade.
The clear cola was originally rolled out nationally in 1993 with a high-profile campaign that included Super Bowl ads featuring Van Halen’s “Right Now.” The product was widely regarded as a flop along the lines of New Coke after missing sales targets. It was soon reformulated with a lemon flavor and renamed Crystal.
Crystal Pepsi was brought back briefly in December as a prize in a two-day online sweepstakes. Purchase, New York-based PepsiCo says it will return to store shelves in the U.S. on Aug. 8.

How about some pre 1984 coke. When it had real sugar and real flavor.
US ARMY MSG says
I agree with IEN,
I grew up during WWII and lived on a farm where food was real. We had cane or beet sugar for sweetener. and real butter from cow’s cream and cooked with lard. everything today is made with plastics, and you can barely tell where the food leaves off and the container begins. Most food that comes in a cardboard box does not have as much nourishment as the box that it comes in. Todays food tastes like the sewage waste from a chemistry lab.
