Celebrate the 90’s With Re-Release of Discontinued Soda
The 90's are hands-down my favorite decade, so you won't hear any complaints from me that the fashion, music, food, and beauty trends of my teen years have made a comeback. I actually found a can of Surge at Five Below the other day and was so excited that a squeal accidentally slipped out of my mouth people stopped to stare at me.
I bought two cans and put one in the way back of my pantry. My husband asked if I was going to drink it and I went all Poltergeist on him. No, I'm not going to drink it. At least not right now. I'm going to store it in a dark, dry and cool place in case they stop selling it again and I have a dire need for a taste of my youth.
Do you remember Crystal Pepsi? Crystal Pepsi was clear Pepsi that tastes just like the regular stuff. People sort of had the same reaction to it as they did purple ketchup (circa 2000)- they didn't love it and I can only guess it's because of the lack of coloring because it didn't taste any different to me.
Although Crystal Pepsi was discontinued in 1993, it had a cult following and it was actually an online petition that convinced manufacturers to bring it back. That's right, Crystal Pepsi is being re-released sometime in August of this year.
Now that Surge is back (for how long, I don't know) Crystal Pepsi is on the way, Hi-C has re-released their 'Ecto Cooler' drink for a limited time (by the way, if you know where I can get it locally, please let me know!), I think we need to try to get some of our other favorite snacks from the 90's back. I don't know about you, but I'd love to see Doritos 3D, Dunkaroos, Shark Bites and Melody Pops back on store shelves. But let me warn you, if they bring back Melody Pops, you're going to have to fight me for them- those were my favorite!
What food or drink would you bring back from the 90's?
