Considering the apparently unending supply of unusual refreshments and odd pop flavors still accessible today, it appears to be difficult to trust that the 1980s and ’90s created such a variety of scandalous and discontinued drinks. In any case, that is the way it goes. While some unpleasant soft drinks keep on being created for over a century, other stunning beverages have a deplorably short timeframe.
We have here 12 drinks you’ll never again see on store rack for better or worse reasons.
12. Hi- C Ecto Cooler (1987 – 1997)
This was a splendid green orange-seasoned beverage released in 1987 as a product tie-in into the toon “The Real Ghostbusters.” Considering that item tie-ins go back and forth significantly more much of the time than TV series, the beverage shouldn’t survived for whatever length of time that it did. However, it was popular to the point that it outlived the toon series by six years, which was scratched off in 1991.
In 1997, the Slimer character turned out to be totally unrecognizable to an era of youngsters born well after the toon ended. The item was rebranded as “Shoutin’ Orange Tangergreen,” and later as “Insane Citrus Cooler.” It was stopped out and out in 2007.
11. Surge (1997 – 2003)
Talking about brilliant green refreshments, Surge was a shining, wiped out hued neon fluid that was like Mountain Dew. However, at the same time, it was “really unique and astounding.” This was as per the online fan club that sprung up in the 2000s, asking the Coca-Cola Company to bring back the valuable fizzy sugar water.
Accessible from 1997 to 2003, Surge was absolutely amazing as confirmed by their TV ads including a bundle of rebel children moving down slopes in oil drums and trampling over pee-stained lounge chairs in a race to persuade what seems to be the main remaining jug of Surge on the planet.
Coca-Cola presented a similar pop in 2005, called Vault, which amazingly contained half more caffeine than Surge or Mountain Dew. Vault stuck around for a long time and was suspended in 2011.
