I scoffed publicly about the limited time return of Crystal Pepsi. I remarked that it was great that I could now reflect that I hadn’t cared about it when it was out the first time back in the early nineties. I drank it then, but I didn’t really care. It was just Pepsi without the artificial coloring. What was the big deal? However, then I happened to be at a Walgreens where they had some…and I bought a small bottle. Limited time, right? Why not at least try to revisit the nostalgia?
Yup, I didn’t like it any more than I remembered. I drank about half the bottle before realizing I didn’t want all that corn syrup for something that didn’t taste any different than normal Pepsi but looked like 7Up. I just didn’t care enough…and threw the rest of the bottle away.
Just like back in the early 90s.
