I just got to thinking about this now absent soda (Crystal Pepsi). I loved that stuff! That is before they added the citrus flavor that completely killed any desire for me to drink it. Do you think that if I bought a can/bottle off ebay the stuff would still be good? Would there be any harm in tasting/drinking it? I would love to be able to taste it again.

Yep...a reallly slow night......

I too stopped drinking it when they put the lemon shit in it

I thought it was pretty cool. Was only 13 at the time though.

No, it wouldn't be any good. CSDs start to lose thier flavor and carbonation after about 10 months, and would taste like shit by now. There would not be anything harmful it it.

I used to drink it. I liked it better than regular Pepsi, and it was a bit of a novelty.

My all time favorite soda that isn't around anymore is Apple SLICE! I could drink that stuff all day!

I remember Crystal Meth...at least I think I do.

+1 on it being good before they gave it the horrid lemon flavor.

That stuff was NASTY!

Crystal Gravy, anybody?

Link Posted: 10/26/2004 5:08:16 PM EST
I remember it, though I was probably only in middle school at the time. Certainly liked it though.

The non-citrus blend ofcourse.
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 5:10:30 PM EST
No, but I rememebr Miller clear. It was a clear beer. I actually liked it. It never made it out of the 3 markets where it was being tested. Richmond, VA was one test market.

it was ok; mixed it with moonshine
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 5:35:26 PM EST
I was a big fan. Again, the non citrus style. I had some on a family vacation in CA and about a year and a half later it made it to MO. Drank it till they put the lemon shit in.

Other good (now gone) sodas:

Josta
Karizma

That New York Seltzer stuff, the APPLE SLICE was the sheezy,
Clear pepsi was cool, it was still in the days of glass pint bottles.

Aren't they still making it in some parts of the country?

I was amazed when I went to Chicago for the first time and saw that they were actually selling Coke 2.

Citrus Crystal? Can't say that I remember that.

I LOVED that stuff. I too miss it.

What about Tab?
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 5:56:32 PM EST
I liked it and thought it was cool. I was only a kid at the time though.

I still have an 8 pack of the 20 oz plastic bottles if you are interested. e-mail me if you want me to send you 1.
BTW Thanks for giving me something to help get my post count up

I liked it the first time, the 2nd time they brought it back with the changed flavor it sucked.
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 10:00:35 PM EST
yeah i loved that stuff!!! i remember drinking it last around 2nd or 3rd grade!

damn, i wonder where it went. i guess not too many people liked it, though i knew many who did.

oh well.
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 10:01:58 PM EST
I thought it was cool, even though I prefered the regular pepsi taste. But I was just a young teenager at the time.

Ok what is crystal gravy ?

n/m found out nasty but funny

If you want turkey gravy soda.. look no further

Stuff tastes like thanksgiving dinner in liquid form, after sitting around three weeks on the kitchen counter. It was so popular as a collectors item. Bottles sold on ebay for hundreds of dollars.

dammit troy, you beat me to it.

+1 on the new york seltzer.

i also liked clearly canadian (not that i have any particular love for the canucks themselves). but then again, i've got a nice pic of a girl with a clearly canadian bottle up her pooper, so i might be biased.
