I remember all the whoop-de-doo about "New Coke" -- went to the corner store on the day of the "reveal," bought a can, and didn't really notice much difference from "old" Coke. :rofl:

 

It was pretty funny watching all these angry people on the news waving protest signs in front of Coke's headquarters, pouring bottles of "New Coke" into the gutter, etc., etc.... ridiculous... it's a f*cking Cola drink for cryin' out loud... one is pretty much the same as any other...

 

Now, Crystal Pepsi... there was a bad idea.

:lol: Remember the commercials for that stuff, with Van Halen's "Right Now" playing in the background? EVH and company were the only ones to profit off of the Crystal Pepsi debacle. Betcha they got paid stoooopid $$ for the use of that song.

:rofl: I do remember a lot of people saying New Coke tasted like Pepsi. I dunno, I honestly never understood what the big deal was. Maybe I am just not that picky when it comes to colas.

 

Personally I like RC Cola better than either Coke or Pepsi... but I can't get that stuff very often in this area... so when it comes to cola shopping, most of the time I just buy whichever one is cheapest, be it Coke, Pepsi, or (most often) the store brand. I've been drinking Shop-Rite brand cola forever!!!

Are you kidding me?

 

That was Coke's answer to Budweiser :lol:

I thought New Coke tasted like bad Pepsi. I remember my buddy's dad went ballistic when they stopped making original Coke. I was at their house and he threw a massive fit, stormed out of the house and came back with a trunkload of Coke. I thought the guy had a screw loose! I really have no preference whether it's Pepsi or Coke, just depends what I'm in the mood for that day.

Speaking of long forgotten soda's, I wish the Coke A Cola company would bring back OK Cola, I loved that stuff... reminded me of when I was a kid and we would mix all the soda pop's together and call it a "graveyard". :)

My buddy used to do that every time we went to 7-11. He'd take a Big Gulp cup over to the self-serve soda fountain and squirt a little bit of each soda (Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Root Beer, Orange, etc.) into it till it was full. It always looked nasty as hell and I'd say "Dude, that is just not right." :lol: Never heard'em called "Suicides" tho.
