The Slice brand is dead, and has been for some time. The exception is a diet Slice One product produced by some pepsi bottlers for Wal Mart only, apparently.

Cherry Cola Slice and Apple Slice came out in 1986, both of them did not last long 1-2 years tops.

I heard at one time there was a Slice cola, I thought that that was strange since Slice Drinks have Fruit juice in them.

I do remember the slice cherry cola. What where the marketing wizards at Pespsico thinking in coming out with a cola that was not part of the flagship Pepsi?

Well, Pepsi did have a history of introducing flavor extensions under an alternate brand. When they tried a diet cola in the early 60s, they put it under their "Patio" sub-brand instead of as Diet Pepsi. It was successful enough that Diet Pepsi was soon introduced. I wonder if the Cherry Cola Slice wasn't a similar tactic on their part.

I really miss some of the slice flavors. Good stuff, I much prefered them to Fanta.
