Crystal Pepsi May Return as Pepsi Clear

There is a Trademark filing for "Pepsi Clear" on the United States Patent and Trademark Office, according to BevReview.com. Pepsi Clear (77553297) Filing Date: August 22, 2008 Published for Opposition: December 30, 2008 Date of Status: March 24, 2009 I guess this is something that was in Mexico in 2005. Now it might be a new product here in the USA. I hope so. I remember loving Crystal Pepsi, and I hope this is a similar product. I do hope that Pepsi makes it with real sugar and other natural, healthier ingredients. I love the concept of clear soda being made with less chemicals and more "real" ingredients. Sodas from Whole Foods, for example, are all natural and still taste good. Maybe one of the largest soda companies in the world can offer a healthier more natural soda. Either way, it's so fun for a fan of Pepsi like me to see some of the old products be "refreshed" in Pepsi's "Refresh Everything" campaign. Once again, I will mention glass bottles, hoping they will see one of my blogs about glass and think about putting more Pepsi products in their glass. Pepsi Natural is in a class of its own, and I think is a great start to an opportunity for Pepsi to stand out over that other big soda company.
