Any nineties kids remember Crystal Pepsi? It was the sweet taste of 1992 in a bottle. Pepsi released their crystal clear soda for a year in the early nineties and then briefly in 2015. Weirdly enough, the colorless liquid was originally marketed at a “clear alternative” to other cola brands, equating the clear color to purity and health. I’m not sure how convinced we’d be nowadays.
The clear colored soda is making a comeback this summer and features caffeine. PepsiCo said that there was “overwhelming fan demand” in response to Crystal Pepsi sweepstakes held last year. This reaction from the public prompted them to bring back the thirst-quenching drink. Flick over to the next page to see when the crystal-clear elixir will be hitting your shelves.
