Surge was Soda…to the Extreme!!!

Woah! Woah! Woah! Did you just use 3 exclamation points in that title? Was that really necessary? Yes it was! Because we ain’t talking about your Nana’s soda pop, we are talking about Surge!!

Surge, which was a citrus soda that started out in Norway as a drink called Urge (it is still available there), but in 1997 the Coca-Cola company brought it to the United States and added an S to the front of Urge and it became Surge. Well as it turns out that the US was not as extreme as those crazy vikings up in Norway, and Surge was discontinued after 4 years. Even when Coca-Cola tried to kill this drink in Norway, they demanded its return and they did so in 2008.
