Crystal Pepsi Review
Clinton is running for president, Blink-182 is popular again, people are going nuts over Pokemon Go and Crystal Pepsi has returned...daaaamn, it is like the 1990's all over again. If you are like me and don't remember anything about Crystal Pepsi, now is your chance to try it again and unearth some deep forgotten memories.
I found a huge stash of Crystal Pepsi as a Loblaw's downtown Toronto, but from what I have been reading, it should be available country-wide and where Pepsi products are sold.
Crystal Pepsi vs. Regular Pepsi
So what makes Crystal Pepsi so different from the regular Pepsi? As far as I can tell just the lack of caramel color. The lack of this ingredient has a tiny effect on the flavor and makes it a touch less sweet and caramely (if that's not a word, it is now) and that's it! It also looks really cool.
The 591 mL bottle that I tried still had the same 63 mg of caffeine so the only difference is the lack of color. This isn't a caffeine-free drink like some made you believe in the 90's.
Soooo the hype is just about the color...still. Get a bottle and re-live your early days.
Cost - $2
Taste - meh....do I even bother? It is just a Pepsi!
