I was there in 1993. The original Crystal Pepsi has touched my lips, and like a lot of Americans, I found the experience weird. Up to that point we had been conditioned to expect clear cola to taste like lemon lime or seltzer water. This didn’t taste like either, nor did it taste much like Pepsi. A new flavor might’ve been fine if it was delicious, but that wasn’t the case either. My parents had similar feelings and only bought one bottle.
