Once-Discontinued Slice Soda Now Looks Totally Different
By Elizabeth Thorn
PepsiCo's Slice Soda made a comeback in 2018, and in 2022, it got another sleek revamp that was marketed as "the first and only great-tasting natural soda in history."
Slice was first introduced by PepsiCo in 1984, during the soda giant's fierce competition with Coca-Cola over who could come up with the next big soda hit.
Unlike its competitors, Slice was made with 10% real fruit juice, giving it a unique edge in a sea of artificially-flavored beverages.
Even though its 15 flavors were a hit among consumers, dwindling sales forced PepsiCo to discontinue its production in 2005, much to the chagrin of devoted fans.
Today, it is no longer filled with added sugars, has a trendy and nostalgic look, and is full of natural flavors. The current version only has up to 20 calories in each can.
There are currently four fruit flavors available in 12-ounce cans, including the original Lemon & Lime Slice as well as Berry Slice, Orange Slice, and Cherry Slice.
