Crystal Pepsi Is Heading Back To Stores And We Hope It Brings These Friends

Please tell me that most of you remember Pepsi’s 1992 foray into clear soda and that your brain automatically plays this song whenever someone mentions Crystal Pepsi:

Competitive eating star athlete individual Kevin Strahle must have made his devotion to Crystal Pepsi known to the right people, because he received this letter:

That’s…great? I mean, I’m sure I drank Crystal Pepsi at least once, but I don’t remember what it tasted like. I don’t yearn to pour clear diabetes into my mouth, at least not at the moment. However, if this sort of ploy to bring back a failure pop worked, I would like to respectfully start campaigning for the following discontinued foods and drinks:

1. Hi-C Ecto Cooler

I do remember how this magnificent Slimer sauce tasted and I want it back in my mouth yesterday. Apparently I’m not the only one, as there is a Facebook page dedicated to bringing back this delightful drink.

2. Jell-O Pudding Pops

They just need a new spokesperson and the flavor will take everything straight to the top! Come on, Popsicle! Bring back the creamy goodness on a stick!

3. Keebler Magic Middles

It was the 90s and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were quite popular, you know. Did I eat Magic Middles on pizza back then? Yes. Yes I did. AND I WOULD DO IT AGAIN IF I COULD BUY THEM.

4. Dunkaroos

You got a tiny pack of cookies shaped like fun things and you had a side of frosting with SPRINKLES. Sure, childhood obesity is bad, but I don’t want to give these to my kid. I want them for myself so I can start working on my awesome Dunkaroos gut.

5. Flintstones Push-Pops

The commercial speaks for itself.
