Remember Surge? It’s Back and Only Available on Amazon.com
Nothing ever dies on the Internet, right? Not even a 20-year-old soda. Very much a 1990s type of soda (very Mountain Dew-like, if I remember right), you might have had a can of Surge while dialing up some AOL while watching some Must See TV. Surge lived a short life between 1996 and 2001, but an Internet campaign has convinced the Coca-Cola company to resurrect it.
The weird part of it? You can only order it on Amazon.com. (OR at least you could -- it's sold out as of the time this was published.) You can't waltz into a store, pay a buck-and-a-half and try one out. Nope, you're committing to AT LEAST a 12-pack of the stuff in tallboy 16-oz. cans. Or, at least once they make up another batch.
And the response on Amazon's reviews are ecstatic -- as of this writing, almost exclusively 5 stars.
I am getting married in 5 days, and getting this for my first drink as a married man is better than any other gift I could possibly receive outside of gaining a wife. -- Dale Paradowski
That's pretty high praise for a soda no one's had a sip of since the World Trade Center was still standing.
I don't have any memory of Surge. I know I've had it. I think I liked it, but who remembers the 90s, right? I'm happy for these people. I don't get it, but I'm happy they're happy!
