Throwback to Simpler Times - and Real Sugar!
Back in the day soft drinks such as Pepsi and Mountain Dew were smooth, delicious - and sweetened with natural sugar. Fast forward several decades and the formula has be tweaked and the sweetener changed to high-fructose corn syrup. While change can be good, it doesn't always result in a more desirable outcome. Call me a purist, but I much prefer natural sugar to high-fructose corn syrup, so when I heard about Pepsi Throwback I was very excited.
Now available nationwide for a brief stint of only 8 weeks beginning April 20 (why do they tease us like this?) in 20-oz retro designed bottles and 12 oz. cans, Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback will leave you wistful for the good old days!
In honor of this Throwback, Pepsi is giving away some memorabelia along with some of the good stuff - both Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback. One winner will receive a $150 Throwback prize pack that includes:
Pepsi Throwback Trucker Cap
Retro Pepsi Tin Lunch Box
Retro Clock Radio/CD Player
USB Lava Lamp
Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback
