The Return of Crystal Pepsi Proves the 90s Really Are Back

Tastes like nostalgia


Summer 2016 is turning out to be awfully nostalgic as far as beverages go. First Hi-C resurrected its garishly green Ecto Cooler, and now another 90s icon is poised for a comeback: Crystal Pepsi.

A press release from PepsiCo reveals the clear soda will return for a limited time this summer in 20-ounce bottle form; expect to see it both on store shelves and at select restaurants starting July 11 in Canada and August 8 in the U.S. The company says they're bringing back the beverage, which originally launched back in 1992 and was only sold for a year, due to "overwhelming fan demand." (It was briefly offered again in December 2015, but only via a sweepstakes on the Pepsi Pass app.)

And if that wasn't nostalgic enough, Pepsi will also launch its own version of the wildly popular 90s computer game Oregon Trail to coincide with the drink's launch. It's called the Crystal Pepsi Trail; hopefully the clear drink won't give your character dysentery.
