    Many years ago, Pepsi had an apple flavored soda called "Aspen" which my brother & I liked a lot. After they discontinued it, they brought out "Apple Slice" which was similar, but not as good as "Aspen" I hope that someday they will bring it back out. I hope companies will consider that low sales figures do not say a product is bad. It just says the competition had something the public favored at the time. Thank you.

    Just my two cents.

    The market is driven by the tastes of the consumers. Chances are if a product is not doing well it is due to the quality of the product and not the popularity of another similar product.
    A good soda pop in most cases will do well in head to head competition with a similar/same good soda pop. The classic example is that of Pepsi and Coke. They tend to share (approximately,regional differences) the market.

    As a kid, my favorite soda was Welch's Apple. Remember it?? It was the best... long gone now.

    Apple has not done so well as a flavor. There also used to be an Apple Slice, but it went away around here in 1989. There was also an Apple Kool Aid, but that went away 20+ years ago.

    Yes, I also remember Welch's Apple.
    Life is too short to drink crummy sodas...

    I always wanted to try Apple Soda, but now since I had that Seven Eleven big gulp apple soda, man I don't know.

    There's also an Apple Fanta, but its hard to find. I think one of my "computer friends" found it in Texas once.
