ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

SURGE, the sugar and caffeine-packed soda made made by Coca-Cola is back.

And for the internet, that makes September 15 pretty much the best day ever.

The international beverage company celebrated the drink's return with a video, sharing the moment with fans.

SURGE has been on hiatus for 12 years, according to a release by Coca-Cola.

The soda that originally existed in the United States from 1996 to the early 2000s is back by popular demand, and you can only buy it on Amazon.

The citrus flavored soft drink is available in packs of twelve, 16 fl oz cans. It is also being re-released in its original formula and the same retro design from the 90s.

The product already has a 5-star rating on the site.

Recent comments from purchasing customers raved: "I just spent $45 on soda and I'm not even mad."

Another excited reviewer said, "The absolute best purchase I have ever made! Thanks to everyone who has decided to bring Surge back to the market!"

Since Coca-Cola took SURGE off the market, groups of consumers have rallied for the the soda's return.

The largest group for the cause, known as the SURGE Movement, made a Facebook page in 2011, and since then has gained more than 125,000 likes.

The page features an extensive list of Life Events for the group, that includes being featured on CNN and crowdfunding a billboard calling for the return of SURGE.

A limited supply will be sold exclusively through the online retailer at www.amazon.com/surge.

“If expectations are met, this may be only the first of a variety of efforts we explore to launch niche products through e-commerce relationships,” said Wendy Clark, president of sparkling and strategic marketing, Coca-Cola North America in a statement.
