    I have tried the vanilla coke and although I didnt like it the first time, I do now. It's more satisfying when you have it with food and not by itself. Otherwise it has a kind of odd aftertaste.
    I will try the blue pepsi. When is that coming out?

    Vanilla Coke was ok, but I thought the flavor was weak. Pepsi Blue is slated to hit at the end of the summer/early fall.

    Don't forget about Dr. Pepper Red Fusion!

    A polling by Pepsi revealed that the majority of teenagers polled said they would like to see a berry-flavored cola with an electric blue color. :eek:

    Dunno if that's what will be delivered...

    I think in true teenage fashion these kids were ticking the boxes that resulted in the most ridiculous outcome.

    I realize this is a soda thread, but I must add...I was at the store yesterday and in the frozen section, in the frozen potato section Ore Ida is selling......Blue, yes blue french fries:eek: I realize this is a tie-in for Jimmy Neutron but....I'm sorry but this is disgusting! See for yourselves! http://www.nick.com/ads/oreida/
    I couldn't bring myself to allow my son to get them even though he wanted them (and this from a kid who doesn't like any fries except McDonalds fries) which he rarely gets because we don't go to mickey d's!

    How would blue fries go with purple or green ketchup? Maybe the idea is the more disgusting to adults a product is, the more kids will want it. Fine; let the kids earn the money to buy it.

    Hey, it's all flavored sugar water at an exhorbitant cost, considering what it is. So unless the blue dye is carcinogenic, what's the diff?

    They were demoing the above mentioned french fries at a store I was in the other day. Quite rude.

    I hate Pepsi anyway. Flavored Coke only tastes good if you do it fountain style - real vanilla added, or lots of sliced lemons for lemon coke. I am partial to a good cherry coke (grenadine or maraschino syrup) every once in a while - but the rest of that **** is nasty, nasty, nasty. It's like all the so called energy drinks - Red Bull, Merlin, RockStar- that distinct aftertaste of chemical crap, no matter what color they make it. A rep brought me some energy/caffeine concotion that was bright blue (!) - needless to say it dyed my tongue, and just like beets, was definitely noticeable exiting my system!:D (Sorry about that one)
    You know what they call diet Pepsi and vodka - the supermodel
    Red Bull and vodka - wide awake drunk

    I just bought a case of vanilla coke to try. I'll see how it sells and let you all know. About the blue french fries - I had mesquite smoke flank steak and purple pomme fretes as a special last week... (my own version of blue ff).... didn't sell one. :( I guess western NJ is not ready for blue fries yet.

    As for the french fries: they also have chocolate ones and cinnamon sugar ones. Isn't there enough sugary junk out there???? Or aren't the kids flabby enough? Even the active ones are getting tires around the middle.

    Quite seriously, now, I'm suddenly less hungry! The thought of blue chips, new blue colas, and chickens with NO feathers makes me want to barf!

    Food is supposed to be such a pleasure.

    Kimmie -- I understand that by "blue chip" you mean what we down here call french fries, and I agree. However, blue potato crisps (chips to us southerners) are great! My favorite junk food company, Terra Chips, makes them as well as other potato and veggie chips, and they almost make me feel not guilty to eat them! (Althugh the Spiced Taro chips are my all-time favorites.)

    I stand corrected Suzanne, I meant blue french fries. BTW, I adore blue corn chips! :p

    I do believe there was a study done once and it showed that the most unappealing color for food was BLUE I would have to agree with one exception...naturally occuring blues. Blue corn, Maryland blue crabs, bluefin tuna, Eric Clapton, etc:rolleyes:
