If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.

Indiana has followed New Hampshire’s lead by releasing bacon-scented scratch-off lottery tickets. However, the Hoosier state went a step further by giving players the opportunity to win a 20 year supply of everyone’s favorite meat.

If you should happen to bring home the bacon, it will be paid out in 20 installments worth approximately $250 each in order to accommodate for fridge space.

Beyond that, if you should find yourself questioning the possibility of consuming that much bacon, winners can instead opt for a one-time lump payment of $5,000.

Let the games begin.

You may recall our previous discussion of Beer Cap Maps, which are 1/4 inch laser cut veneered plywood outlines of countries and U.S. states that are purpose-made to display beer caps. Now all 50 states are available to ship immediately from HomeWetBar. You also have the option to add a dark walnut stain.

The size of individual maps will vary by state, but all measure 16″ to 22″ across, and hold anywhere from 33 to 99 bottle caps. For most this will be an instantly recognizable bit of cool on your wall – unless you live in Wyoming, in which case an explanation will probably be necessary.

If you recall that horrible commercial where stereotypical ’90s kids show extreme, radical enthusiasm for Sunny Delight, you’ll be happy to know that the company decided to revisit the concept with a 2015 update. As you’ll see after the jump, everyone’s older and the drink has a shorter name, but everything else is basically the same… the pastimes, the dependence on Mom – even the unidentifiable purple crap is still hanging out in the fridge.

Check out the original and the update after the jump.

beer can burgers

Although beer has long been associated with burgers, the BBQ Pit Boys have developed a Bacon Burger that actually makes the beer can an integral part of the burger recipe. The process involves using the can as a mold to create a bacon-wrapped meatball bowl that is then stuffed with toppings such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, meat chili, and roast beef before being grilled to perfection.

It’s the kind of flask a spy like Archer would probably love to bring with him on an important mission that requires laser-like focus.
