For weeks, Pepsi has been hyping the release of Pepsi Perfect on Back to the Future Day as the beverage was first featured in the time-traveling classic film Back to the Future Part II.

The soda company announced that fans will be able to get their hands on a bottle on Oct. 21, 2015 (the same date Marty and the Doc traveled to the future). However, with a premature release and limited instructions on where to actually buy the product, fans were left angry and confused as they clicked the refresh button profusely on their browsers only to discover that all the bottles had sold out early.

The next morning, Pepsi issued a tweet that there would still be a few bottles left for sale that day. Within an hour or so of the tweet, the bottles quietly went live on Amazon and sold out in the first minute.

Now Pepsi is giving themselves a shot at redemption.

Thanks to the righteous anger of diehard Back to the Future fans, Pepsi decided to start making more bottles.

The beverage company announced new orders for Pepsi Perfect will be taken on Nov. 3 at 9am EST. That’s 6am PST.

At least this time, they’re going into specifics. They even have a link to where fans can buy the bottles.

Thanks, Pepsi.

Pepsi Goes Retro With Limited ‘Back To The Future’ Bottles, Here’s What It’ll Cost You

Pepsi-Perfect-Cover

When Back to the Future Part II came out, folks got their first look at Pepsi Perfect. The futuristic cola boasted an elevated rendition of the classic Pepsi. Now, more than 25 years later, we’re finally getting the soda.

With Back to the Future Day coming up on Oct. 21, Pepsi will release the limited-edition bottles to the public.

Don’t expect to see Pepsi Perfect on shelves for too long, however. USA Today reports only 6,500 bottles of the soda will be produced. Each will run you about $20 a bottle.

For avid collectors, that’s not too bad if they can get their hands on one. For casual soda drinkers, however, stick to regular-priced bottles as the the soda is said to taste the same.

The first lucky few to get their hands on the bottle will be at New York Comic Con. Fans will be able to get the first 1,500 bottles of the soda if they dress up like Marty McFly at the comic book convention.

Everyone else will just have to wait until Back to the Future Day.
