You know there is always that one thing in life you regret. Right? If you could go back and change it you would. Right?

The one thing I always kicked myself about was not trying New Coke when it came out back in 1985. I always thought "hey it's New and it will be around forever." So what is the big rush?

Well of course it was a big FLOP. It was taken off the shelf way too soon before I ever got to try it. So....I did always regret it. Though luckily Stranger Things brought it back this summer and I was not going to let another chance pass me by. I got the opportunity to fix my regret.

Here I am trying New Coke:

So am I glad I can mark that off my lists of regrets? Yes. I can now not feel like I missed out. It wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. It tastes like Pepsi. It really does. I like Pepsi too. To be fair that was probably the first soda I have had in a long time.

I am glad to have tried it. I have one can still left in my fridge of the New coke and 2 bottles of the Limited Edition Stranger Things Cokes.

Oh and I was so afraid I wouldn't get the cokes in the mail. I did have a problem at first with my Coke online order. I went ahead and ordered it again off eBay. So I have another 2 New Cokes on the way. I am OK with that.
