Discontinued: Coca-Cola BlaK

After being on the market just 17 months, Coca-Cola BlaK has been discontinued in the United States. Perhaps it was the poor taste or the bad concept that killed the drink. Or perhaps no one was stupid enough to pay $2 for an 8 oz. bottle of Coke! Why didn’t you like it?

Update: Mountain Dew Game Fuel

Mountain Dew Game Fuel - Official Image

While we have already extensively reviewed Mountain Dew Game Fuel… and found it to be lacking, that hasn’t stopped the marketing machine from kicking into full gear.
Pepsi has released an official press release about the new beverage… and it’s funny to see what they talk about vs. what they don’t talk about. (Hint: It’s not about the drink!)

Review: Mountain Dew Game Fuel

Mountain Dew Game Fuel

Another limited edition from the folks at Pepsi, Mountain Dew Game Fuel is a cherry-ish version that contains the highest amount of caffeine for a currently-available Mountain Dew product. Marketed specifically at video game players, notably with a promotional tie-in for Halo 3 on the Xbox 360, the drink is similar — yet substantially different — from Dew siblings Mountain Dew Code Red and Mountain Dew LiveWire. Still, as our beverage review denotes, the drink starts out with a lot of potential, but finishes with an poor aftertaste experience.
