View Full Version : Is pepsi blue dead?

I was at a (sort of) local convenience store and I saw pepsi blue down one the bottom..The bottles he had expired in nov. 02 and he only had 3..I bought all 3 though..I asked him if he had any more and he said he still had a whole case of the crap..Before I waste money on the crap I want to know if it's discontinued or not.

I'd say they better bury it fast and put the gravedigger on overtime for efficiency's sake to prepare the spot for Vanilla Pepsi as well. These big guys' copycat plastic drinks really embarrass them, don't they?

Pepsi Blue is not that bad. I guess I am one of the few that like it. Fanta berry was a Pepsi Blue knock off anyway.

the fat lady has already finished her song, packed up her gear and left the building.

Yeah, i'm pretty sure it's been discontinued. I have been buying up any that I find, because it's next to impossible to find anymore. My store's Pepsi guy told me it was officially discontinued (at least in my bottling area anyway) to make room for Vanilla Pepsi.
So many people around here have an irrational hatred of Pepsi Blue that I just can't understand the reasoning for.

I've never tried it. I've never had the desire to, but it's not disappearing around here. It seems we're seeing simultaneous distribution of Blue and Vanilla, I guess we have that luxury since around here, Pepsi has a lot more push than they do in other areas.

Fanta Berry was actully worse. Though they were both HORRID.

Never seen Fanta Berry. In this region, seeing anything Fanta is purely coincidental. Food Lion and their pallet of FP's went out of date, and was taken out of the store. They sold maybe 2. Only sign of Fanta here ever...only Orange and Grape.

I think it lasted longer than Kuat did in this country.. both were pitched more towards Hispanic customers.
