    Pretty much everybody who heard about MDX back when it was in the launch phase lambasted Pepsi for the boarderline-retarded decision to go with 14oz bottles at the original high price. First the price went down and seems to have stayed that way and now they finally have realized that its gonna take more than that to keep the stuff from collecting even more dust. Starting in the next month or so MDX is going 20oz and more than likely losing the sugarless variety. If only some of these big whigs visited BevBoard perhaps they could have avoided the embarassment, and stockholder ire of a launch like MDX (or Blak, or the rest of this crap).

    Yeah, I was less than surprised when I was told that a few weeks ago.

    LOL

    In less than 9 months about $0.79 on close out. LOL

    IMO...I do not not think the size nor the price of the 20oz bottle will help increase MDX's market share. (FYI...MDX is nearly non existent in the grocery stores that I shop at in Chicago.)

    My guess is that it will be line-priced with the rest of the 20oz Pepsi products.

    Your guess would be correct, fusion. We are slated to have by the end of this month.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    All the MDX 14 ounce is finally out, just sitting collecting dust till they go outdated and the 20ounce is released, I hear they will be priced inline with other 20oz @ $1.18.

    Ok this is kind of weird. When the 14 oz. first came out they were selling for $2. When the 20 oz. come out they will be selling for $1.18? I just don't get it.

    Its called somebody finely getting a clue and realizing it is a very uncompetitive and long forgotten product by consumers who are a bit brighter than some of suits would have us believe. No doubt this will help alot but with most of the 14oz being under 80c this is really just a reimagining.
