I just tried Pepsi Blue, the new cola variant from the folks who brought you Code Red. I’m a big fan of Code Red. I love it so much, you could call it an addiction.
Pepsi Blue, on the other hand, is crap. Think, carbonated blueberry Kool-Aid with all the sugar removed and replaced with vinegar. It’s that bad.
The cola industry is batting 0 now on their new cola “fusion” products. Vanilla Coke tastes like cough syrup and Pepsi Blue is even worse. When will they learn? Cola is best when it’s just cola. Cherry and Lemon are acceptable variants. Blue is not. Vanilla is only acceptable if fresh.
Why didn’t they ask me before they did this? I could have told them.
