View Full Version : Where the F... is Mr Green?

Even though I can't drink it anymore, I have been keeping my eyes open here in SF for Mr Green... but many months after lauch, it's still not here.

I have seen it 60 miles north of here, but it appears that the Bay Area seems to have the anti Mr Green shields set at maximum.

Check in your Calla/Bell stores or in some other grocery chains. I have seen Mr. Green in the Bay Area before, I just can't remember were cause I never bought any.

This post brings out my opinion that of all the new products in 2002, I feel Mr Green will be the first to fail.

Both have tanked miserably. Pepsi is reportedly leaving them out there until they have some new products ready to go.

Look for Mr Green in area's where Pepsi does not sell Dr. Pepper. They have just rolled it out near me. I don't think it is going away.

Pepsi Blue sale are very poor, have to wonder where it was test marketed at.

One of my dist. who sells Sobe said he was told that Mr. Green was going to be pulled. I have not tried it, so I don't know what it tastes like. Although Pepsi Blue is nothing short of horrible.

no, there are still area were Pepsi has not picked up the brand. It is mainly Franchise areas, but some Corp. areas I believe as well.

Mr. Green is getting pulled? it never made it past the 20oz. bottles size here... never even seen it advertised or anything. The thing I do like about Mr. Green is the graphics and the green color.

The thing I like most about Pepsi Blue is the type of blue they used in the drink. Are these 2 products getting pulled at once or what?

What's weird is Mr. Green appeared here for a short time.....and in Western MD beyond Hagerstown, Dr. Pepper is a Pepsi product, whereas non Dr. Pepper areas for Pepsi never did see it. Very peculiar. Pepsi Blue shall die and never return.

Pepsi Blue isn't going away here yet, still plenty of it in 20 oz, 12 packs, and even 2 liters :(

I never got into Mr Green because I don't like my beverages looking like I put my yard in the blender!
