Did you know Pepsi used to make yoghurt flavored coke for a short while?
Whenever large snack food-producing corporations release a new treat, flavor or branding, and label it “limited edition”, I always wonder if that’s what they truly are, or they’re just testing the waters. I see absolutely no reason to spend months investing in the invention of a new snack and then intentionally keeping it on the shelves for only a few months, so the latter seems more likely.
Still, it’s odd when they do eventually pull ’em. Sure, something new won’t be making companies as much of a profit as more familiar products do, but I always feel betrayed when my favorite odd flavor gets replaced by something more bland. Luckily, a few months later, a new oddity finds its way into the supermarkets, and we get to experience the same “learn to love and then let go” cycle all over again.
Now, I can’t say chocolate covered chips sound like a great idea, but there’s some gems out there.
