Artifacts of the Analog Age: Clear Pepsi
This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. Clear Pepsi
While I was too young to remember New Coke, I was not as lucky to miss Clear Pepsi when it came out.
Clear Pepsi (also known as Crystal Pepsi) was made at a time when everyone thought that clear soda was better for you then soda that had color in it. My Dad was a big fan of Pepsi, and my Mom thought it would taste better without color. I for one thought it was going to taste like a mix up of 7up and Pepsi. When it came out, we ended up getting a 12 pack of it, and after all 3 of us tried it, the remaining 9 cans of it sat in the back of the refrigerator for weeks! Yes, it tasted that bad. We did have one friend that did like it, so we gave the rest of it to him.
Did you ever try Clear Pepsi when it came out? And if so, what did you think of it? Do you think color=taste?
