I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

I don't remember Pepsi Light. I only remember Tab. Maybe I was too little for diet soda at age 7.

Ally: I thought it tasted pretty good. I drank it alot.

Mine, too! I used to drink that stuff by the 32 oz glass bottles on ice! It was awesome!

I thought it was a shame when they discontinued it.

Lately Pepsi has brought back Pepsi and Mountain Dew made with the original sugar formula, before they started using "high fructose corn syrup." It features the original Pepsi and Mountain Dew logos.

See here: http://www.uncrate.com/men/culture/drinks/pepsi-throwback/

I was just thinking that they really ought to bring back "Pepsi Light," and other such nostalgia drinks, in the original logos too, just so we can relive the taste. (At least for a limited time.)

Here's a '60s and '70s soda I remembered fondly which has made a bit of a comeback:

I loved Pepsi Light! Do you think any actual lemons were used in the manufacturing? I know someday I will get cancer... I know it will be Pepsi Light's fault. Still, I'd drink it again in a second!

joe said...

Mountain Dew was probably one of my faves.

Chris: This was the only diet drink I ever drank because I liked it.

joe said...

I LOVED Pepsi Light! I remember drinking it in high school (graduated in 1980) and well into the 80's. Those tall, glass bottles were also the best! I will occasionally drink a Fresca or 7Up now, but Pepsi Light was the only soda I ever loved! Maybe they will bring it back!?

That would be great if they did, but they probably won't. I don't know why they discontinued it, alot of people liked it.
