From the Beverage Aisle: Slice Cherry Cola

Slice Cola. I think we all remember it (and by "all" I mean us old people, and by "remember" I mean have a very slight recollection, mostly due to our age and our brains already being at max capacity with all this glorious pop culture stuff. Some things just have to be forgotten, such as short lived 80s sodas, and math.)


I think we all remember Orange Slice, and of course, Lemon Lime Slice (the OG), and possibly even that punishment we didn't deserve known as Apple Slice (I just threw up in my mouth a little).

But do you remember that there was a Cherry Cola Slice? I didn't. Not one bit. I tried to remember back and visualize a shopping trip with my mom......strolling down the soda aisle. That would have been back in the mid 80s.....years ago....I'd tell you exactly how long ago that was, but you know....math.

I think the funniest part of this old Newspaper ad is that they are touting how they beat Cherry Coke in a taste test. Maybe they should have been looking over their other shoulder, as Cherry Cola Slice was discontinued in 1988 due to the popularity of Cherry Pepsi.

Hind-sight is always 20-20...or 40-40.......or some other numbers? 

Stupid math.

  1. I remember Slice and its various more popular flavors and being "meh" about all of them. I don't recall Cherry Cola Slice at all either. Sounds like someone's been tampering with the space-time continuum again.

  6. I don't see a place for general comments under "cereals" so i'll place one here. What about "Quisp" and "Quake" cereals? Quisp & Quake were two combative characters I think Quisp reminded me of kazoo from the Flintstones and Quake was sort of a viking or something and they always at odds about ... whose cereal is better !!! Please start a section for these ...
