End of Zima Marks End of an Era

Newly Chicago-based MillerCoors announced it would cease production of its malt beverage Zima. It's being pulled due to a lack of interest in the product, but vendors can still get stock through December. Frankly we didn't know Zima was still around, but -- and we're going to date ourselves here -- we remember when Zima was introduced to our college campus as a test product back in the early '90s (or was it '89? See too much Zima can kill brain cells) and it was all the rage, until its sugar sweetness made you sick. [Trib via FS]
