Crystal Clear Pepsi. Slice. OK (from coca cola). Coke II. Life Savers.
What do all of these names have in common? They are the titles of fallen carbonated beverages. Sodas that didn't make the cut, and ended up on the bubbling room floor.
I mean, we remember some of them, surely. Who can forget the gigantic ad campaign Pepsi underwent for their transparent bubbly treat?
But there are far more failed sodas than you may even remember. Recall Pepsi Blue? What about Josta? Or the odd overseas versions of Pepsi?
Alright, this one may be cheating a little bit. Yes, these flavors did exist, but you could fill pages upon pages full with weird variants of any soda. Particularly Coke and Pepsi, which have had numerous flavor variations, many of which were only available overseas or for limited times. For example, did you know there was a Pepsi Ice Cucumber? Other odd examples include Pepsi Twist Mojito, Pepsi White (with yogurt flavoring), Pepsi Holiday Spice, and Pepsi Carnival. So why single out these two?In the end, there's all these soda sob stories and a ton more at A Tribute to Fallen Sodas. One of the greatest compilations of carbonation I've ever seen.
