When I was in 10th Grade Pepsi Blue was released. Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, caffeine, and Blue 1. The later ingredient was banned in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland at the time.
The flavour of Pepsi Blue was often compared to the taste of cotton candy or those blue fish candies you can get at the corner store. Yet the soda is seen as a commercial failure despite being a hit with middle school children. By 2004 it was dropped from production in and disappeared from the store shelves across North America.
Pepsi Blue has nothing to do with the couch I slept on this week or the fact that I've accomplished what seems to be absolutely nothing over the past two weeks.
It may explain why I ate Corn Pops for dinner but I'm sure it doesn't.
