It’s been more than two decades since Crystal Pepsi was taken off the shelves and now Pepsi is bringing it back.

Pepsi announced that 13,000 people can win a six-pack of 16-oz bottles through their Pepsi Pass app. The contest will run from noon ET on Dec. 10 until midnight on Dec. 11 and is only available in the U.S.

Pepsi uploaded a comical YouTube video on Tuesday to make the announcement. The video played up to the soft drink’s age by giving the video a 90’s flashback theme.

“We have a lot of fans and they’re really enthusiastic and they’ve been asking for Crystal to come back for a long time,” said Linda Lagos, marketing director for the Pepsi brand. “We thought it would be special to bring a holiday treat to our fans.”

Crystal Pepsi made its original debut in 1992. Its popularity was short-lived as it was discontinued in early 1994.

It is unclear whether the sweepstakes is a precursor to the clear soda’s permanent return.
