I was at my local grocery store today and saw a display of Throwback Mt Dew & Pepsi. It claims to have natural sugar instead of corn syrup as a sweetener like olden times (or south of the border). I've had Coke with natural sugar and that stuff is damn good. Has anyone seen/tried either of these yet?

I heard that was coming, but I really haven't looked for it. When did they stop using natural sugar? I'm wondering if I've ever had that version.

Someone posted a blog about it yesterday, I'm keen to try it as it does taste much better. I would be willing to pay a small premium for it, so hopefully they keep it around instead of just having it for a limited time.

Teh interweb sez: many food makers switched to HFCS in the late 70's/early 80's because it was cheaper than cane sugar.

I'm drinking the Mtn. Dew Throwback right now as I type this. It's pretty good, but it doesn't really taste all that different from the HFC version

Maybe Coca-Cola will go back to their original formula from before 1903. It'd make my caffeince addiction go away, that's for damn sure.

It's pretty delicious. When I had it, I thought it honestly tasted a little like kool-aid.
I went around to a couple stores last night trying to find a 12 or 24 pack of it, but it appears they were only released in 20 oz bottles. Has anyone seen it in can form?
Also, all the places I went to last night didn't have the pepsi.

The 12 and 24 packs are usually in stores within a few weeks after the 20oz bottles are first out.

New sig coming soon.

With the increasing popularity of cane sugar based pops I doubt they'll end the run on this after six quick weeks. It would be very dumb on thier part.

New sig coming soon.

I bought a 12pk can of both Dew and Pepsi today. It was the same price as regular ones. I'd imagine if it sells good they'll keep it on selves at a 10-20% price increase. It's pretty good and if they keep making it ill keep getting it even with a higher price.

Got a 12 pack of the Dew a few days ago, fucking love it. Was about to stop drinking dew since everything else I drink is natural sugar, but now dew won me back.

Oh man, I'm gonna have to try some of this - however, I doubt it'll dethrone the best soda ever made, Diet Mountain Dew.

...as a result of corn farmer lobbyists. Yet something else we can blame on politics. :lol:

I haven't tried Mountain Dew throwback, but Pepsi throwback is good stuff. I found some last week and have almost finished off a 12 pack. I'm just waiting until has a slightly better price on Pepsi products so I don't have to pay $4.50+ per carton.

That stuff tastes like chemicals, not soda.

I'm interested to try the new mt. dew though.

Saw these at my local Publix. Have the 8pck cans and 20oz. bottles of both the pepsi and mt. dew. It's nice to see the classic dew logo again instead of the crappy new one as well.

Despite having mostly given up regular soda in favor of diet , I might have to try these. Now if only Pepsi would hurry up and come out with that much rumored Diet Pepsi with stevia.
