Which of These Special-Edition Flavors Are Real?

On April 23, 1985, the folks at Coca-Cola announced that they were switching their original recipe to a new and improved recipe. The resulting "New Coke" was a total flop, and production on Classic Coke began again after less than three months.

To celebrate the hello — not to mention quick goodbye — of New Coke, I thought I'd whip up a little quiz about limited-edition flavors of your fave convenience store products. I'll list the product and you tell me if it existed or not. Also, be warned, some of these might not have been available in your neck of the woods, but were available somewhere in the world, while others I completely made up. Ready to give it a try?

Except for the Altoids (I think Orbit has that flavor) and Almond Chunks, the other things came out when I was too young to properly appreciate them. The other things aren't even in America, so...I don't feel too bad.

My husband and I both remember Crystal Pepsi fondly, and I only knew about 7UP Gold through my husband, who claims it was nasty.

4/7 pretty weak. We had Crystal Pepsi here in NE. I loved it! Tasted just like Pepsi (and yes, my sis and I did blind taste tests!), but without all that nasty "caramel" coloring to stain your teeth. I was bummed out when they discontinued it.

Crystal Pepsi was test run in our area! I remember having a bunch of it in our garage long after it was discontinued, no one wanted to drink it. haha.

When I see Crystal Pepsi all I can think about is teenage sleepovers. We were all cooking in the kitchen at a sleepover and something funny happened and Crystal Pepsi went shooting out my nose. First reaction - Eewww and Owww. Now days it's definetly a special-edition I won't forget :)
