    I would have left them on bench or table or sidewalk or something if I was you. Someone would have taken it and tried it.

    Hilarious to see Pepsi copycatting Coke so closely with similar colors and marketing but people should consider that Coke and Pepsi have been copying off of each other for YEARS. Remember C2 and Pepsi Edge? Then lets go a bit further back ..remember New Coke?

    Either way, I welcome some different variety approaches honestly.

    You know what else is hilarious?

    Pepsi True's availability. Gee, wonder where they got that idea.

    ..and more hilarious is only 23 ratings on amazon.

    This is a huge success for pepsi

    They should have re-released Josta instead. It would have sold a lot more units and would have created some buzz.

    The same place that Coke gets its ideas from a lot of times. Not sure why people are surprised by these things. Your name(well the Vault part of it) exemplifies the copy cat part of the industry.

    To be honest, Vault was more of a copy of Surge than a copy of Mtn Dew as its taste is more like Surge than MD, but with a color more like MD than Surge. Mello Yello is more like the copy of Mountain Dew but that has been around for years. And you can say all you want that Surge is a copy of Mtn Dew, but it had its own flavor profile different than MD, Mello Yello, and Sun Drop and that's what gave it its cult following.

    Surge and Vault have the same base formula from what I was told. Just a different color and different carbonation.

    I bought a 6 pack of the glass bottles, and had one warm. Didn't have much of a taste to me. Maybe it will be better cold or in 20oz (which don't come out until next month). If anyone's in Boston or further north, they have 12 packs and 2 liters up there.
