    Default The Ghost of Soda Pop Past

    Over the years, lots of soda pops have come and gone while others have hung in. Which discontinued soda pop do you miss the most? Which discontinued sodas did you want to try, but couldn't because they were not available in your area?

    For me, they would have to be:

    Sodas I liked, but are gone:

    Coca-Cola Umbrella
    Mr. Pibb
    Fanta Root Beer
    Ramblin Root Beer
    Coca-Cola with Lime
    Sprite Remix: Tropical, Berry Clear, and Aruba Jam

    Pepsi Umbrella
    Crystal Pepsi (the first version that was a clear cola)
    Pepsi Blue
    Pepsi Holiday Spice
    Mountain Dew Pitch Black I
    Slice Red
    Flavored Pepsi-Colas: Pepsi Tropical Chill, Pepsi Strawberry Burst, and Pepsi Raging Razzberry

    DPSG Umbrella
    7up Gold
    Dr Pepper Red Fusion
    dnl
    Canada Dry Birch Beer
    Snapple Tru Root Beer

    Faygo Umbrella
    Faygo Diet Chocolate Creme
    Faygo Morning Mist (the red flavor extension of Moon Mist, which was ahead of its time)


    Gone sodas I wish I had the opportunity to try:

    Coca-Cola Umbrella
    Coca-Cola with the Chocolate flavor packs
    Diet Mr. Pibb
    Fanta Berry
    Mello Yello Cherry
    Mello Yello Melon
    Mello Yello Afterglow
    Tab Clear
    Barq's Floats
    Minute Maid of any flavor other than Orange

    Pepsi Umbrella
    Pepsi Kona
    Dr Slice
    Sobe Mr Green

    DPSG Umbrella
    Royal Crown Draft Cola
    Dr Nehi

    EDIT: Added a few I forgot about, but loved.

    Pepsi blue of course
    Coca-Cola Vanilla (reg/zero) I know it still exists, but I only ever see it in 20oz and 12 packs.
    Sprite Remix (I liked all 3 flavors, maybe aruba jam the most)
    dnL
    Diet Mountain Dew Code Red (Again, I see it in 12 packs, but never in 2 liters anymore)
    Slice
    Tropicana Twister Citrus

    and the one soda I wish I could try that I never really did
    Crystal Pepsi, I seem to remember as a kid my mom bringin home a 2 liter, but I dont recall how it tasted.

    I think Mr. Pibb is just Pibb Xtra now.

    Oh and I would kill a homeless man for a Crystal Pepsi.

    I think I was a little rude in my last post, I would kill a homeless PERSON for a crystal pepsi, I don't want anyone to think I'm sexist.

    Mr. Pibb, now known as Pibb xtra, is still around. It depends on the region, and if the local Coke bottler makes Dr. Pepper. Also, Pibb xtra zero(diet) is available in some markets.
    Vanilla Coke is still around as well.

    Maybe Pepsi Holiday Spice is just seasonal and not totally discontinued? Or at least, that's what I'm crossing my fingers for..

    You aren't going to be able to do much with your hands then. It is done, gone, buried.

    Then again is anydrink actually gone?? It will come back one day as the same thing with a new name like "cinnamon spice SLICE" or something corny like that and Pepsi will act as though it is the newest and greatest thing since HFCS.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    The big thing I miss (most of us miss) is having a mass market glass soda pop machine.
    I remember as a kid, getting RC,Pepsi,Coke, Dp,7up,Dog & Suds root beer, Hires root beer
    and so on....from a good old vending machine. IMO....that period of time was the golden
    age of soda pops. Cane sugar and glass, oh so good.
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba

    Pibb Xtra is not the same thing as Mr. Pibb. It wasn't just the name that changed, but the taste as well.
