Food: Crystal Pepsi Is Coming Back Again . . . Briefly

Crystal Pepsi Is Coming Back Again . . . Briefly

Can you believe it's been 30 years since the failure of Crystal Pepsi?

Pepsi is celebrating this "milestone" by launching a Twitter contest, where they're asking people to post photos of themselves from the '90s with the hashtags: #ShowUsYour90s and #PepsiSweepstakes. It ends tomorrow. 300 winners will win some Crystal Pepsi, but there's no indication it'll be made available in stores.

Crystal Pepsi was only around for about a year in the early '90s. It didn't sell well and they stopped making it. They've brought it back several times in the past few years, but only for very brief runs.
