Nope! It's the real thing. I heard some were accidentally sold early and the rest sold out in minutes.

But you can get as many as you want. On ebay. Selling for up to $450 EACH....

If you wanted to but a Pepsi Perfect bottle, you missed out.

AFAIK, If you actually want to drink "Pepsi Perfect", find a store that has "Pepsi Throwback", at the same price as Pepsi. They're both Pepsi sweetened with sugar in lieu of HFCS. Pepsico is not reluctant to use sugar now, since the price of sugar is no longer greatly different from the price of HFCS (there were also geopolitical reasons for the use of HFCS in the US that I won't go into).

For my money, I'll take Diet Pepsi Wild Cherry over either of them any day.

I think I fell for a total hoax.

Thanks, Pepsi, for making me feel like a total goofball.

I won't be drinking any Pepsi products for a while, that's for sure.
Your location is Atlanta. I'll bet you actually work for Coca-Cola which is based in Atlanta and are creating this entire "problem" to try to make Pepsi look bad. There is absolutely no conceivable reason why a sane person over the age of ten would otherwise be concerned with such insignificant nonsense.

What gets me why they would only produce 6500 of these when they could have sold a million or more.

At least I'll have another chance on November 3rd - I wonder how many they'll sell then...lol.

That would probably be a big mistake on your part, based on my own investment experience with PepsiCo.

I have held shares in PepsiCo since 1993, and as of yesterday's market close, my gain on those shares is 247%.
And, that doesn't include the gain on my shares in Yum Corp, which I received--gratis--when it was spun-off from PepsiCo in 1997.
As of yesterday's market close, the gain on my Yum shares is 655%.

This is a weird post.

Darn you sports arenas that only give the free promotional baseball caps to the first 500 people through the gates! They should be available even if I arrive there halfway through the game!

I'm sure there are plenty of people who think that since they paid for a ticket they are entitled to the free giveaway no matter when they show up. Who cares if it was previously announced as limited quantities. Who cares if the giveaway actually happened two weeks ago. All stadiums everywhere should have an unlimited amount of every giveaway ever.
