O.J. Simpson is in the headlines. Nintendo brought back the NES and is soon bringing back the Super NES. It seems only fitting that Pepsi will bring back Crystal Pepsi to continue fulfilling our cravings for all things from the 1990s. And they’re going all out to promote the return of Crystal Pepsi and its limited run.
Pepsi is launching the Crystal Pepsi Throwback Tour with three stops in New York, Miami and Phoenix. The tour will include appearances and performances by Salt-N-Pepa, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, and Busta Rhymes. Each artist will perform at one of the concert sites starting August 1 in New York. The free concerts will be held prior to Major League Baseball games at Yankee Stadium, Chase Field, and Marlins Park as Pepsi leads up to the launch of Crystal Pepsi in mid-August. The concert events will be free, but you will have to get your hands on some tickets.

It's seriously absurd how news stories from the 90s keep popping back up into relevance! I guess once crystal Pepsi came back, anything goes

What ever happened to low rider pickups? Crystal Pepsi, low riders, Trapper-Keepers. This new generation doesn't stand a chance

Crystal Pepsi is one of those beverages from the 1990s that still has fans talking about it today. There are people who have craved for this return of their favorite clear carbonated beverage, so expect the drink to fly off shelves in August. After a highly successful holiday run, Pepsi realized they should do it again. The drink will return to stores on August 14.
If I could go back in time, I'd go back to 9/10/01 and buy a whole case of Crystal Pepsi just before they got discontinued.

For those of us who prefer Coke, there is still no word on whether or not Coca-Cola will reissue New Coke anytime soon, and that’s a very good thing.
