Crystal Pepsi

You read that right, fans of the clear concoction from the 90s can now rejoice! Crystal Pepsi is officially returning, but only for a limited run, until summer 2016, when it's set to hit retailers in the US. For now, they're releasing 13,000 six-packs of the beverage that can be won via the mobile app or online. If you've never heard of the beverage, initial sales were good, but quickly fell. By the fall of 1993, Pepsi pulled the drink off the market, and the final batches were delivered to retailers during the first few months of 1994. Pepsi returned several months later with a reformulated citrus drink titled Crystal From Pepsi, but this was short-lived as well.

Now splitting this evenly, and dipping them in milk might be a problem, but we're sure a cup of frosting on the side is a fair trade off. Click here to view more pictures of Oreo Churros.
