It was as popular as the clear tie in Back to the Future

What was one piece of my '92-'93 college dorm decoration?

A label from a bottle of Crystal Pepsi. Yes, the clear cola, immortalized by Homer Simpson: "It was the magical summer of 1992. The clear cola craze gave us all a reason to live..."

From the label:
Clear Cola
Crystal Pepsi

You've never seen a taste like this.TM

Right now, there's a new taste loose on the planet... A completely different kind of soft drink with a unique cola flavor. Absolutely clear, wonderfully refreshing, it's everything you want...and nothing you'd expect. What you get is purely the best -- all natural flavors, no preservatives, no caffeine and no artificial colors.
Is this a fairly short ingredients list for something as unnatural as cola? "Contains: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar, phosphoric acid, natural flavors and citric acid (for tartness)."

Thus I must admit that I actually drank some Crystal Pepsi (its name shares a word with crystal meth!). There's a time and place for everything, and it's called college...
