I've been away from the board since Pepsi Blue has left the market. Is there a true alternative out there for Pepsi Blue (something close)?

I just found Jolt Blue on the net as well, is that as comparable or is A-treat more like Pepsi Blue?

A-Treat big blue is not the same at all. Neither is Jolt blue.

Pepsi Blue was a blue cola. The other two are blue sodas, kind of like a melted Icee or those freeze pops in the plastic tubes.

Maybe if you mixed one of the A-Treat Big Blues with Pepsi?

Ya but Pepsi Blue didn't taste (to me at least) like a cola, reminded me of the juice that melted from a snow-cone type flavor.

Pepsi Blue tasted like melted down icee with cola flavor.

They have blue raspberry flavor shots at 7-Eleven that you can mix with Pepsi. That might do the trick.

Jolt Blue is great and while not entirely like Pepsi Blue, is a fair alternative.

Whoa!!! Pepsi Blue may have been advertised as a "blue cola", but it did not taste anything like cola. Like the above posters mentioned, it tasted like the syrup of a melted Icee or snowcone. Pepsi Blue was not a cola.

I worked for Pepsi when 1 came out, I had a few Consumers tell me that it tasted just like Pepsi Clear.

It just goes to show ya, not everyone has the same taste.

I would not be suprised to hear someone say Big Red tastes like Pepsi Blue.

Ehm, while Pepsi Blue may have not been a cola in the sense that, perhaps, Pepsi Wild Cherry is a cola, it still had some cola taste.

Pepsi Blue was not a pure "blue" soda.

Thanks for confirming that. I clearly remember tasting cola when I drank it.

i have some Jolly Good blue raspberry (its pretty hard to find in this area, only one store carries it), and i poured it in a glass, and put a splash of pepsi in, and it tastes pretty good.

also, on a totally unrelated note, are the new pepsi designs supposted to go in any order? some stores still have 001, others have 004 and even 011... and i went to another store and saw 002, 005, 010, and 014...
