What happened to "Pepsi Blue"? remember that? ?!

Question: What happened to "Pepsi Blue"!? remember that!? !?
It was really good!. I used to buy it as often as I could!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I remember it, but I tend to shy away from blue beverages!. LOL
I hate it when they introduce something new like that, and you love it, and then all of a sudden they take it away! I was like that with the Dr!. Pepper Berries & Cream!. It became my favorite when it came out, then all of a sudden I can't find it anywhere!. Same with Coke w/Lime, and other flavors!. There's been a lot of new sodas that disappear like that and it drives me nuts!. And it's not fair!

EDIT - I looked on Wiki (thanks to the source from an above answer) and my beloved Dr!. Pepper Berries & Cream was most certainly discontinued! How sad!.!.!. :(
I wonder why they introduce new flavors only to take them away after such a short time!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Oh my god! I loved that drink! I'm with ya man! I really want that drink again!. Here's some info on Pepsi Blue's fate!.

Pepsi Blue, launched in mid-2002 and discontinued in 2004, was the result of taste-testing over 100 flavors over a 9-month period!. Designed to compete with Coca-Cola's Vanilla Coke, it is considered by some to be the company's second equivalent of New Coke, after the much maligned Crystal Pepsi!. The flavor of Pepsi Blue was thought by some to be similar to cotton candy with a berry-like aftertaste (it resembled that of blueberries or raspberries to some, though Pepsi itself simply described it as "berry") and much more sugary and syrupy than regular cola!. It was tinted using Blue 1, a highly-controversial coloring agent banned in numerous countries at the time!. The move to make a brightly-colored version of the flagship Pepsi brand was spurred by 2001's introduction of Mountain Dew Code Red, which had bumped PepsiCo's Mountain Dew division sales up 6%!.

You can still get a bottles of it on eBay, but it's not exactly Pepsi Blue, but something else!. It might have the same taste! I'm not exactly willing to pay $10 for a bottle of soda!. Here's a link to that website!.
