Has anyone tried this?
They decided to make Pepsi and Mountain Dew with real sugar.
The Mountain Dew kicks all kinds of ass and the Pepsi is pretty good too.
Per Pepsi, "Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback will be available nationwide for about 8 weeks beginning April 20″. We previously reported a release window of April 20-June 13. Technically, 8 weeks would be June 15, but again, it says "about 8 weeks", plus you have product that will be on the shelves after the release dates. (Then again, if these prove popular, they might not be around that long!)
Mark Ficher of the Dayton Daily News wrote an article where he asked Pepsi, "what if consumer response is overwhelmingly positive? Might Pepsi change its mind about the limited-time offer?"
Their response? "We'll have to see."
Where do you buy this? I must go hunting now!
Gonna have to buy some.
Fold for XS!
You know you want to
looks like we are going back to 70's style wavy colors lol
i want to try the pepsi and see if still has a lot gas and sour taste, thats i liked coke cola it was sweeter
mountain dew is definate buy
seriously, where can i get some of this?
i think i'm going to go raid my local grocery stores.
They're running this through part of summer and it's available most everywhere by now. Alternatively for those in the US, just hit the local Mexican market or even the "ethnic" aisle of many supermarket chains, where you can buy Coke made with sugar in glass bottles (imported from Mexico). Not cheap but it's worth every penny.

You know there weren't as many fat people in the 60's~70's. Why is it you only see fat people drinking saccharin/artificial sweetener filled diet drinks ?

Second Law: "You can't break even."
Third Law: "You can't quit the game."
Do you wanna Play Thermodynamics ???????? I forgot "you must"
Both drinks are great. They sell them here at Walmart in the coolers, but not the actual drink aisle.

yep..I nearly made a thread about this. Im strongly against HFCS in cola..and hunt down cola with actual surgar. During passover I stock up on Coke for passover in the 2 Liter bottles. It's almost gone now..this store near me still has a few pallets though.
then I heard about pepsi doing this promo for dew and pepsi..and drove to like 8 stores..finally found some..this was last week..when the distribution was crap..now I have seen it in more places thank god. I bought 6 cases.
during the off season i only buy soda from whole foods...their store brand made with cane sugar is cheap..and taste good..the rootbeer is the best!
Jones is another brand..but it's hard to find around here..so I just get the Whole foods cola...
I hope pepsi decides to continue Throwback..it taste much better. I didn't care so much for the mountain dew..but in end I don't really drink HFCS dew ever..nor have been a huge fan of dew period..it's good though...just nothing great.
the pepsi is really good though. The way it should be.
oh if anyone want's help finding Throwback
go onto Twitter and search for #Throwback
there is a running list of people posting locations where they found the beverage.
it's hard to find still..even after it's slowly come into markets. It seems wal-farts..is the best bet. that's where I have the most luck
Smiths, Kroger..non of them have it yet..even after 8 days.
Heck, I stopped to pick up a Mtn Dew at a "party store" as they're called here in Michigan and didn't even pay attention to the old school "Mountain Dew" label, to me it just meant I was going to get what I wanted (heck, it's a familiar look for Mountain Dew)! Then as I was carrying it up to the counter I noticed it was the throwback. I even held off from popping that peppermint gum in my mouth to experience the taste... I didn't get much out of it. It wasn't as much fun as when the fountain dispenser at the gas station near work is running rich ! yum ! LOL
Mountain Dew comeee tooo thheeee UK!!!!

I'm trying the Pepsi and it tastes a little sweeter than normal...but I still prefer coke.
Excellent. Yeah it ain't (just) the glass bottle that makes the Mexican Coke taste better.

Had another Mountain Dew throwback. Maybe a hint sweeter, but still not like that rich-running dispenser at the Speedway by work... yum !
Insulin injections, here I come !
Yeah.. With these being accessible I kinda broke my vow of only one soda every two days. It's now two sodas every one day.
