Retro: Buzz Cola

buzz cola
Buzz Cola circa 2007

Back in 2007, when The Simpsons Movie came out, there was a lot of products from the animated show that became real products. Like Buzz Cola.

Burst and spilled in storage

The cola in the cans was pretty much RC Cola [or some slight variant] and I ended up getting a couple of six-packs of it. Fast forward to this week when I found that my last two cans I had held onto finally did the leak and burst. Turns out soda doesn’t keep that long in aluminum cans, eventually expiring in many ways.

Real cola based on a movie product

I got lucky with these last couple of cans in that they lasted over 5 years [has it really been over 5 years since “The Simpsons Movie” came out?]

Read the label before consuming

Nutrition wise, Buzz Cola was no more healthier than most other colas on the market

Nothing like a cola almsot 5 years past it’s expiration

These last two cans were kept to save them, but once they burst, I had to finally believe the real expiration date. I did pour a bit of the remaining cola in a glass and took a sip. Pretty horrible since it had lost it’s fizz.

I wish they would have made some Buzz Cola in bottles for memorabilia purposes.
