Crystal Pepsi is coming back to fulfill your '90s dreams of a see-through soft drink

Did you weep when Crystal Pepsi was discontinued in the '90s? 

Brace yourselves and cry no more. If the possibility of a Clinton in back at The White House wasn't enough of a throwback, you will now be one step closer to recreating that decade with the resurrection of the soda that's transparent for some reason. 

Starting July 11 in Canada and August 8 in the United States, Crystal Pepsi will be available to guzzle down for a suggested price of $1.79 for a 20-ounce bottle. That's a little more than the average cost of gallon of gas back in 1992, when the clear cola was first released. It eventually disappeared in 1994, with one brief resurgence in the form of a 2015 sweepstakes prize.

"We've always had a special place in our heart for Crystal Pepsi, and there has been a huge groundswell of support to bring it back," the senior director of marketing at Pepsi, Stacy Taffet, said in a statement. 

To announce the re-release, Pepsi launched "The Crystal Pepsi Trail," an online game based off of the 90s hit "Oregon Trail." The game will be available on crystalpepsi.net starting July 7. 

The reactions have been mixed. A lot of folks are thrilled about the relaunch, others are a bit skeptical about reliving the 90s, and some just don't want to have to explain what Crystal Pepsi is to the next generation.

Soon, you can relive that sweet time in your life when you drank a normally brown soft drink, inexplicably turned mostly transparent.
