Woe is me. Pepsi Vanilla is no more.
Pepsi Vanilla, which I’ve fondly referred to as “The Nectar of the Gods,” has been discontinued.
I am deeply depressed.
It began to be hard to find in local grocery stores several weeks ago. But I could always find a 12 pack here and there. Occasionally I’d find a bottle in a corner store. Then 2 weeks ago it was gone. Nowhere to be found. No notice, no warning. No chance to stockpile. I didn’t even get to truly savor the last can (though I can tell you it was consumed sitting in the parking lot that’s also known as the Superstition Freeway. I remember it well. I only wish I had known then it would be my last chance to experience Nirvanna.)
I just called the Pepsi Consumer Hotline and a nice young lady named Teresa informed me that it has been discontinued due to poor sales. That certainly isn’t my fault, as I would often drink six or more a day.
Despite discontinuing production of this wonderful elixir, Pepsico still flaunts PepsiVanilla.com in my face!! I can download a Pepsi Vanilla wallpaper for my PC, but I can’t buy a can to drink?!? Does Pepsi understand what this is doing to me? Oh the humanity!
I ask my local readers to keep their eyes peeled for Pepsi Vanilla (Regular, NOT diet!). Should you locate any, BUY IT ALL. I will gladly reimburse you and pay a handsome finder’s fee as well.
At this moment, I can’t imagine life without Pepsi Vanilla. I know, I know, life will go on. Somehow.
Today is one of the saddest days of my life.
