Yeah, I remember this. Pepsi's blunder as they tried to ride the wave of the "clear beverage" trend in the mid to late '90's. Dreamnt up by some idiot in a suit, no doubt, FAILED because people were expecting the flavor of Pepsi BUT CLEAR (just like the name suggests, right?) -- NOPE, it was a weird artificial berry-fruity flavor if I can remember correctly from the ONE time I tried it. Pepsi could have simply omitted their caramel coloring agent, saved money (and consumer spending on teeth whiteners), increased market share, and created a "new" product etc. A crystal cleat failure.

I agree with Beavis Christ, if they had just took out the color it would probably still be around today. However, it doesn't fail on the sociality side, here we are,almost 18 years later, still talking about it! (1992-2009)

Too bad it wasn't flavored like Pepsi, it would have still been popular :(

The original Crystal Pepsi was a clear version of reular Pepsi, When it failed they re-introduced it as a Clear Berry flavored drink. That failed then they dumped it.

I was in college when this was introduced and that summer I worked in the information booth at a local mall. Pepsi did a big promotion for this stuff, giving away free cans to shoppers. I can't tell you how many almost full cans were found left on benches, etc, all over the mall after people took a sip, got grossed out, and ditched it.

Ew! I just saw on TV that Pepsi is gonna bring back Crystal Pepsi...really? I don't remember this soda as much as Pepsi Clear, which was kinda weird in itself. Why bring this back when it obviously sucked.
