I stumbled upon a fridgepack of Live Wire today (slightly expired, of course), much to my delight...Any people in the know at Pepsi have some info on when it might be brought back?

12pks & 20oz here - Doug, your local distributor must not have been able to sell enough to justify keeping it around - sorry

There's still a few 20oz bottles, but a lot less compared to Code Red and reg. Mountain dew so I kind of worry.

Catch-22. At a number of stores in my area Livewire was never stocked like the other sodas. Some only carried cans, some only 2L, and some not at all. I also noticed that some places that did have it only stocked it on an end display and it never had a spot in the soda aisle even during the summer. Both Pitch Black and Pepsi Holiday Spice received much better placement.

I live in Alabama and I cant find livewire ANYWHERE. I ended up having my friends dad bring a few cases last time he was here but they bought them in a gas station instead of in bulk at the walmart or something. Is there anyway to find out where the closest place is that still sells livewire?

I have tried going down to the local distributor but when I asked about livewire she looked at me like I was crazy and said she had no idea what that was.....lol.

It's in upstate New York.

And didn't it come out in in the summer of 2003, and return the next summer, and then shortly after it became a permanent product in some areas?

Seems like they are trying to push Livewire at the lcal store,they have a big display of 12 pack at the front of the store for only $1.99 each.

Some markets have stopped carrying it. We're on our way out of it here in SoCal. It sold pretty decent...but we have to make room for new items somehow!

Did they ever have a diet Livewire?

David J.
05-17-2006, 01:59 PM
Nope. I have a friend who wants to try one. I guess maybe it COULD come in time, since in some areas it's now a staple of the Mountain Dew brand.

There never was a diet Pitch Black or Pitch Black II, so I'm not going to hold my breath for one.

There were rumors that Pepsi Americas in the Midwest produced diet Livewire but I've never seen anything to confirm it.
