Pepsi Throwback

Postby GoogieHowser » Thu May 28, 2009 2:18 pm

Anyone had Pepsi Throwback yet? If you haven't heard, its a limited edition version of Pepsi that uses sugar instead of corn syrup like the used to do before they switched in the late 70's.

I much prefer the taste of Throwback Pepsi and I hope they decide to keep it. I think it doesn't taste as sweet and crisp as regular Pepsi. You taste more cola instead of the crisp corn syrup. I tried Mountain Dew Throwback yesterday and it too tastes much better, not as sharp.

I haven't been to mickey d's lately so I wouldn't know about the difference in flavor.
Mexican coke is disgusting.

I did a side-by-side comparison of the Mexican Coke vs. the American Coke recently. They both tasted the same to me: way too sweet. I'll stick to my chemical-laden diet sodas instead.

i took the "pepsi challenge" back in 'the day' and remember pepsi was waaaay sweeter then coke. the coke tasted like medicine in comparison.

but although i rarely if ever drink pop anymore - these days i still like coke better and somehow - mexican coke with its sugar instead of corn syrup just tastes more well rounded to me.

so i am interested in trying the throwback now - thanks for the heads up.

I've been looking for Pepsi Throwback on store shelves for the past month. Any tips on where it's for sale in the San Diego/Southern California area? I've been to all the usual suspects (Ralphs, Vons, Albertsons, etc.) and have yet to find it anywhere!

I can't find it in Los Angeles. The bottle I found was in Bakersfield!

It's a documented scientific fact that they'll drink anything in Bakersfield... :wink:

Shame that I was just out there. Had I known, I'd have run out and grabbed a case.
