2015 in Review--Beverage of the Year/Surge Returns to Store Shelves!

A Tasty Beverage
Previously I have at times focused more on food as a best-of post, but this year I wanted to discuss a drink I was excited to see return to store shelves. That drink? Surge!
Back in the late 1990's and early 2000's I greatly enjoyed drinking me some Surge. It was like a better-tasting Mountain Dew courtesy of the Coca-Cola company. However, it wasn't quite popular enough and Coke discontinued it. Many tears were shed as sadness engulfed the world. However, there were people out there who kept petitioning Coke to bring it back, and after enough viral campaigns it was announced back in 2014 that Coke would make Surge available--albeit only via Amazon.

It sold out, quickly.

The surge was so popular and people went so crazy for it that a year later, in the early Fall of 2015 Coca-Cola returned Surge to store shelves, as easy to find at your gas station as most other sodas. I for one welcome this tasty treat loaded with caffeine and artificial-cirtusy-goodness back and hope it is here to stay.
