I don't know how many of you guys remember SURGE soda, the citrus soda drink that came out in 1996 and was discontinued in 2002 but I sure do. It was my favorite drink hands down and for the past decade I and others have been pleading with the Coca-Cola company to finally bring it back to market.

I thought the off topic section would be a good place to bring this up but for those of you who wish to help this cause please take the time to get on facebook and to "like" the Surge Movement page. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/surgemovement

Getting as many likes as possible is important in forcing Coca-Cola to take notice. If you are dedicated and wish to assist we have been bombarding the Coca-Cola facebook page with SURGE related posts. So far we've only managed to get the usual company line type responses but I feel like we're starting to get a head of steam. Here's the Coca-Cola official FB Page link:http://www.facebook.com/cocacola

With Vault having been discontinued back in September 2011 there is no time better than now to ride Coke's case and to force their hand in listening to their consumers. I've been wanting this Soda back for some time now so any help from anyone on here is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance! For the SURGE lovers FEED THE RUSH!

Well it's been about a year since I updated this but in case anyone might of joined the SURGE Movement by liking the SURGE Movement page I thought an update to be necessary. I also thought it would be good as well, for those who may not have seen this thread before.

The SURGE Movement is currently sitting at just over 15,000 members. Coupled with the SURGE Soda page we are at over 23,000 members in total. We've recently raised over $3,600 and have since purchased a billboard in Atlanta, GA just up the road from Coca-Cola Headquarters. We have also managed to get featured on Yahoo, Business Insider, and Buzzfeed. The movement is becoming more an more active everyday and I encourage anyone to join who wishes to do so. Whether you were a 90's kid or not, or if you're just curious about what SURGE is join the movement and we'll get Coca-Cola to bring SURGE back to the market so that everyone can have a chance to enjoy it once again.

I also wanted to ask for a bit of help. I'm currently entered into a photo contest on the Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated Facebook Page. It's a photo contest and I need votes to win. Please stop by here: http://bit.ly/YUui4F and vote if you wish to help me out. Any votes will be greatly appreciated.

SURGE Movement is now up to nearly 29,000 members. It is currently the largest group dedicated to bringing back a discontinued product. Just thought I'd share with everyone a bit of an update that the group is continuing to grow and that we're not giving up on our goal of getting SURGE back on store shelves across the United States.

If you haven't heard of us and you remember the soft drink SURGE please head over to www.facebook.com/surgemovement give us a "Like" and help us get Coca-Cola to finally start listening to consumer demand.

Yeah that's what I thought at first but I think it honestly just came from so many people sharing in one day. You'd think with the biggest group ever having been dedicated to bringing back a discontinued soft drink that Coca-Cola would finally listen...

A handful of people gripe about Pepsi/Mountain Dew Throwback and Pepsi brings it back on a full time basis. 10 Years later people are asking Coca-Cola Company for SURGE and we can't even get a limited release. :banging:

Got my SURGE yesterday morning. Was a little sick still so I didn't drink any until last night. Blast from the past though! Poured mine ice cold into a frosty mug over ice so it had a nice layer of slush at the top. Absolutely exactly how I remembered it. Still has that same darkish green color to it and the flavor is impeccable. Very refreshing citrusy taste with a nice initial bite and a smooth finish with a hint of orange juice at the end. It reminded me of why I loved SURGE so much, and proved to me that all my efforts for the SURGE Movement were worth it!

When it comes back in stock if you haven't had some, or if you have and you're looking for some nostalgia buy some up. Right now some douchebag scalper is trying to sell a 12 pack of 16oz cans for $250.00 through their Amazon e-store. Definitely don't buy that. Wait until they come back in stock as it's only $14.00 a 12 pack which is reasonable.

Coca-Cola has stated that the sales of this product on Amazon will determine the future of the brand. Coca-Cola needs a product that appeals to a younger demographic as the average age of a Coke product drinker is around 56 years old. Right now SURGE is the #3 top selling product on Amazon despite being sold out for the past day or more. It'd be #1 if they had more to sell.

Weird to think that a product that's as established as Coke could finally hit the end of the rope. I don't drink classic Coke, but I still drink the variations and side brands.

It is weird but not a huge surprise. Coca-Cola has been severely out of touch with what it is their consumers want. The discontinued SURGE and kept Mello Yello despite SURGE destroying it's sales numbers. It took them twelve years to finally listen. 150,000 people on the SURGE Movement page later and they're just now testing the waters... Coke has shot themselves in the foot more than anything. Pepsi actually listens to their consumers.

I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Surge, and it has to do with the first time I tried it. I was about 12 or 13 when my twin sister and I went to King's Dominion with our Hebrew School. We were waiting in line for the new Outer Limits: Flight of Fear roller coaster and there was basically a wall of Surge vending machines.

The only picture of a Surge vending machine I could find

I was intrigued as I had never heard of it before, so I had my sister save our spot while I went and purchased one. I took my first sip and was instantly transported to a sugary Nirvana. The whole day was a blast, but that memory will always stick with me.
