I wouldn't be surprised that stuff just sits around at all the store I have been too, and it's super gross.

I wonder if the person/people who pitched this to the higher ups still even works at Pepsi? This was one terrible line of drinks. I'm sure all the Pepsi BCRs won't be sad to see this one go.

The great thing about being Coke and or Pepsi is that these mishaps actually aren't that bad. It gives the consumer time to relaize that thier coveted CSD isn't so bad after all while it gives the big guys a new angle to learn from.
Innovation is great and usually comes from a smaller group that gives it time to nurture only from the fact that it is all the smaller group has. With that being said, sometimes the big guys don't give the new products an honest life cycle because if it doesn't hit hard and furious it is deemed a failure. Furthermore, , the rollout form a big guy is somewhat sloppy. Sure they have great POS and man power on the street, however, an identity has not been established and therefore the brand kind of just "is".

Yeah I complained left and right about the stuff..and then they had a national price drop to 2.50 for four packs..and it still did crappy. The Half liter bottles sell ok though. I never saw one advertisement with the tava stuff. My boss compared it to dole sparklers.

Dole Sparklers...damn, I kinda liked those, yet I never really noticed that they disappeared until now.

I do have to agree that Tava was a terrible line of products. The drinks tasted terrible, the prices were way too high, and the product positioning was questionable at best.

Gone from Target fountains.

i work for target in dade county, fl and sadly its still in almost all of our fountains and the packs of 20ozs just sit on the shelves collecting dust. i tried them and initially they taste ok, and then they give me major heartburn. just like coke zero and pepsi max. they must all be using that ace-k as a sweetener??
