Made Us Look: Crystal Pepsi Is Clear-ly Hella Cool
Editor’s Note: This post was originally part of our 2014 April Fools’ Prank. And because we think the ’90s are all that, we decided to leave it for all you present-day readers who miss Crystal Pepsi. Keep on scrolling to keep the angsty/sparkly dream alive ;)
Pretty, huh? This soda looks like all that and a bag of Sun Chips — we can’t wait to get our straws in it. The new fizzy sipper is caffeine-free, comes in a diet variety, is, um, CLEAR and has a refreshing taste. Think of it like a “lighter” Pepsi. Say WHAT? Yeah, you heard us.
Haven’t found the clear stuff in your grocery store just yet? Right now it’s being tested in select markets around the country, from Denver to Dallas but should hit all of our shelves by early ‘93.
Crystal Pepsi cocktails, anyone? Stay tuned! We have a feeling this will be the type of pop that really changes things in the bev industry. Here’s to Crystal Pepsi 4Eva!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
