    Probably never a very popular drink, but I used to love this stuff. Do they still make it in any region?

    Nope. Long gone. It was dumped to make way for Sierra Mist.

    It was only test marketed in certain areas. Pepsi Pennsauken NJ was one of the test bottlers.

    If you search there are a few other topics that are fairly recent in the past 6 months about Storm.

    From 1/20/06:
    Well before they even brought out Sierra Mist as their lemon-lime soda, they tested Storm.

    For everyone who doesn't know...Storm was a soda test-marketed by Pepsi introduced in 1998 in select test markets(much like Vault). Storm however was never released nationwide and quickly went away. Storm was a Caffeinated Lemon-Lime soda. So think 7-Up's dNL without the fruit flavoring. A caffeniated lemon-lime is a rare combination, so that could have contributed to its failure. Eventually Pepsi then developed and tested the current lemon-lime on the market, Sierra Mist.
    There was also a diet version called Storm Light.

    It was known to be test marketed in: Colorado (Denver/Colorado Springs), California, Indiana (Indianapolis), Philadelphia, PA, Omaha, NE, and Southern New Jersey.

    Usasoda.com has been under repair for a while, so all the pics on the site don't work.

    There's a picture of a Storm can. Looks like it is from the Star Wars, Ep. 1 promo from 1999.

    By the pin it says caffeine free for the fountain. That's really cool. Was caffeine free the only fountain form? I can imagine because Sprite and 7-Up were both caffeine free that many did not want Storm because of the caffeine.
