Colin Powell Selfie Shows Crystal Pepsi Importance

Colin Powell, born April 5, 1937, is an American statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army. He was the 65th United States Secretary of State, serving under U.S. President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005, as well as a decorated military dude from waaaaaay back in the first Persian Gulf War. The one with George Clooney from “Three Kings.”

What you might not know about Colin Powell, besides that he invented the clicky-top pen, is that he used to hit that Crystal…Pepsi. And hard!

Just one more reason we should try to bring back Crystal Pepsi. Here’s a selfie of Colin showing off his Crystal and 3D Doritos.

Bring Back Crystal Pepsi

Crystal Pepsi was marketed as a caffeine-free “clear alternative” to normal colas, equating clearness with purity and health. Its marketing slogan was “You’ve never seen a taste like this“.

In case you were not old enough to have the privilege, a word we use loosely, you can be assured that it was a funky soda with a lingering Pine Sol aftertaste. Can’t wait to see it come back. I think it would pair well with a Cheeto Burrito from Taco Bell.
