Pepsi brand soft drink. Slice (original lemon lime,) Orange Slice are still available. I was in the fifth grade (1987) and loved Apple Slice. I must have been the only person who like it since it disappeared very soon after it was first available.

Does anyone remember what company made the Slice beverages before Pepsi? It came with real fruit juice as an ingredient(usually white grape) until Pepsi cheapened the product!

I found an unopened 16 oz bottle of Apple Slice. It's probably from 1987 when pop was still sold in those bottles. Anyone want to buy it?

I agree. They need to bring Apple Slice back. It was the bomb. We should start a movement to bring it back.

I remember this product. As everyone says here no one remembers it besides my siblings and parents when I ask. Now I hated apple juice but loved apple slice. I really wish they would bring it back.
Marlin - October 06, 2008 - Report this comment
The only way to get it back is to scream, shout, and stomp your foot with Pepsi! If you love it, make a commitment to contact Pepsi. And get your friends to contact Pepsi as well. And not just once--write them, telephone them, e-mail them. Keep it up, and they'll soon find out there's more demand for it than they think. And then we'll ALL have Apple Slice once again! (By the way, actually dreamed that Apple Slice came back to the market tonight. What a wonderful dream!)

Apple slice was the best drink of my time. I tried to forget it, but it keeps haunting my taste budds. I would most willingly help with the fight for the return of this delectable drink, that was way before it's time.

I too loved apple slice when i was a teen. I was told that they quit making it because it had real fruit juice in it and if you openend it and let it sit out for a long time it would ferment and turn into alcohol, i never tried that but i heard that from many people ??? God, i would love one right now !!!!!!!!

Apple Slice was ama-za-zing!! My sister and I absolutely loved it! I, like others on here, have always gotten the goofy looks from people when I ask if they remember it. Oh well...their loss. Unfortunately it is my loss too *sighs*

my dad worked at pepsi, there was 4 slices at one point in our area, the "regular" being lemon lime like sprite, mandarin orange, cherry cola, and in my opinion, the best by far was the apple slice. its a shame they didn't keep making em.

I can't believe you guys are talking about this! I've been asking around for YEARS and could not find anyone except for my sister that remembered this drink! It was the best ever!!! Perhaps contacting the Pepsi Co. will help to bring the drink back.
Tommy - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Well why don't we all contact Pepsi and try to convince them? Either that or make a petition and get however many signatures necessary in order to make it happen and then show it to them?

I was in high school in the late 80s and used to do yard work for my grandmother's cousin. She would always have an ice cold Apple Slice for me when I finished. If anyone ever asks what is my favorite soft drink, Apple Slice is always my answer. You can imagine the response.... What?

I'm glad to see that I'm not crazy,,,I was beginning to think that my memories of Apple Slice were all a dream,,,I was young (probably 8 or 9 years old) but I remember that I loved it! I also would love to taste it again.

I bought cases of Apple Slice when I was in college. The best ever! Now the closest thing I have found is a drink I found in Mexico and now they sell it in the US called, "Manzanita Sol" which is a Pepsi product. We buy it at Walmart or on a trip to Mexico. Its really good. . .try it.

My-coworker and I were just talking about how good Apple Slice was a a kid. He is 30 and I and 29...this was the best drink ever!! I think a petition is a very good idea.

Wow, for years people have called me crazy for remembering Apple Slice. No one has any clue about and I have randomly googled it over the years and little if anything until this!!!! I am so glad to know that there are other people who remember this wonderful taste. Sadly, I had only one experience with Apple Slice as a kid. My mother drug me to a small town we never shopped in and I went to the coke (used in the vernacular sense) machine and there it was so I had to try it. Man, I used to have the empty can for years too. I just wish there was some specialty site where you could order it.

ok... i was in mexico a few years back and they had this AMAZING apple soda that was just like apple slice.... it was just as tasty. downside? i only brought back 4 cans. i believe it is called manzana lift..... there is another one too called manzanita sol, although i have not tried it.... i miss apple slice....
marly - September 09, 2009 - Report this comment
The apple flavor was the only kind of Slice that I liked. The others had a sickningly sweet almost pineapple taste. I was mad when they discontinued this. I couldn't figure out why since it seemed to be very popular.

YEs! I remember apple slice! Been looking for a can to show everyone that I'm not crazy! Know where I can find 1? I also remeber Kool-Aid had a apple flavor too....
Nix - September 23, 2009 - Report this comment
Yea, tried the mexican apple soda, & its not bad. About the closest thing your going to find, But what made apple slice the best was the real apple flavor, and it was light & crisp. I had left a a half open bottle sit for like 2 weeks, and the only thing I got outta it was mold. The manzanita sol is a little, I guess heavy, or syrupy, although good flavor.

Apple Slice FTW! Favorite all time soda! I have Manzanita Sol in my vending machines, but Apple Slice was more tart than Manzanita, which tastes of sweet red apples instead of tart granny smith. If I didn't HATE PepsiCo (I refuse to have them in my machines) I would love to get it back. But now I drink Martinelli's sparkling apple juice.

Apple Slice was fantastic! My one-a-week after school treat was an Apple Slice and a Zero bar. I clearly remember drinking it as late as winter 1989 (in Pennsylvania) and sometime after that, as I discovered that mixing Apple Slice with gin or vodka produced a deliciously sweet drink.

People think I am crazy for saying that Apple Slice is my favorite soda. I haven't had one in over 20 years but it does not matter. I can still taste it. I also wish they still made Fruit Wrinkles. I have recently tried some apple soda that came in a red can. It was a sad day. I got my hopes up thinking that it would taste like Apple Slice and finally put my craving to rest. But Noooooo!

I agree with the earlier comment that drinking apple slice made you feel like you had sparkling wine or champagne. It totally seemed cool and adult for me as a teen. I really miss it. All these comments over 3 years suggest they should revive it.

Another wonderful product that seemed to have been killed by retail store buyer training gone wrong: stop ordering anything you don't sell enough of, never mind that you never ordered enough to sell that much, let alone to meet the demand, considering the product ran out almost immediately every time it was placed on the shelf.

LOVED Apple Slice...I remember having it (briefly) in the 80's. The first time I had it, it was relatively new, and in small "sample size" glass bottles that were available in a display case near the front of our local grocery store for $0.25 and a buddy bought about 12 of them. They were wasn't around long in our area. I would petition for them to bring it back, but of course it probably wouldn't be the same now...soda bottling is a lost art. Even cracking open a bottle of Coke is a lesson of inconsistency. Anyhow, was searching to see if perhaps Apple Slice was available and found this site instead....

My daughter just came back from a camping trip with friend's raving about an apple flavored soda that they had bought at Wal-Mart. She and I searched our local Wal-Mart and found it in their soda isle and after tasting it I was immediately reminded of the old "Slice" soda. It comes in a 1/2 case orange box of cans with a picture of an apple on it and it's called "Manzanita Sol". Hey,guess what? It's made by Pepsi. On the down side it contains no apple juice, but it does taste similar to the old Slice soda. Not quite as good but very similar.
