Tropicana Tw!ster Soda (Grape)

Boy, this stuff has been out for almost two years (and apparently its doing awfully) and I’ve never tried the grape flavor.

It was better than Grape Fanta. Grape Fanta is a little bit syrupy tasting.

I was eating some M&M’s while I was watching old commercials a few weekends ago.

{the last time we visited Tropicana Twister was in June of 2005}

Ah, Coke’s new balleyhooed sparking tea that is a calorie burner — but make sure not to exceed three cans a day! The can says:

drinking more than three cans a day will not have an additional effect

The berry was the best of the three flavors. Peach was too candy like and green was lacking something.

Mountain Dew Amp Overdrive

I thought this was going to taste like MD Code Red, but with an energy drink kick, but it didn’t. It was real tart.

Diet Coke cans that look like this have been spotted on the posters and downloads section of dietcoke.com:

That looks a lot better than the current one if this is true. That current can is on my “ugly can” list.

The new looks is also going to be spotted on the upcoming Diet Coke Plus:

For some reason I saved this way back in 1997 when I was in the 8th grade and Surge had only been out a few months:

Everybody who is anybody remembers Orbitz from Clearly Canadian from 1996. Well, I was bored looking for discontinued food products on Google, when I ran across this message board on cheapassgamer. From this post:

Orbitz was a very innovative and fun beverage for our consumers, however, we made the decision to discontinue the beverage a couple of years ago to focus our attention on creating more new beverages for our consumers to enjoy.

There has been some preliminary discussion on bringing Orbitz back in 2007 or 2008, but at this time we have no definite plans.

We would like to keep your email on file to contact you in the event that we do re-launch Orbitz.

If there is anything else we can provide to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Aquafina Sparking (Citrus Twist)

This was a lot better than the (reformulated) berry, but darn do I miss the original Aquafina Sparking that came out almost two years ago and was quickly discontinued by Pepsi.

Like I said, this was a LOT better than Berry. I’ll be a repeat buyer of it. I took this while watching Garfield’s 9 Lives on an old tape a friend sent me. It was an 80’s Garfield special and all his nine lives — but in three of the stories Garfield wasn’t even the cat profiled.

Coca-Cola Cherry Zero

This is slightly better than Diet Cherry Coke, but donkey sweat compared to Cherry Coke.

I won’t be a repeat buyer.
