Of course, if everything goes off without a hitch, the original Perfect Pepsi fans will complain because their bottles are not worth as much as before the second sale date. It is a vicious cycle and it is hard to keep everybody happy.

I am just glad I switched many years ago to ShopRite's $.88/2 liter bottles. By this time I have easily saved more than the $999 that E-bay wants for one bottle of the 'Perfect Pepsi'!
That is unless the owners of the original Pepsi Perfect sell it as a first-run collectable. Remember the rookie card of say a Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, Pete Rose, Lebron James, Michael Jordan, Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky are worth more than cards when they had their career stats on them. If there is a distinguishing print on the November release, it still makes the initial line worth more because they came off the line first.

I'll let you worry about those issues and I'll stick to saving my money on cheap soda. as a matter of fact; I think that I like the generic sodas better and I was addicted to Pepsi for forty or fifty years.

Oh, I didn't buy it at all. 20.17 for a soda is asinine even for a collectible bottle. At most I get the single 20 onces and that's it. I'm much more of a green tea and Arnold Palmer guy.
