I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

I don't really buy soda, I have it maybe once a week or so mainly because I don't really like the intensely syrupy/sugary taste... but I really like the pepsi throwback. Tastes very naturally sweet, very good.

Subsidies for American corn growers + Tariffs on foreign sugar imports to protect America's small sugar industry= Crappy soda for America.

On a side note, has anyone tried the Dublin Dr. Pepper with cane sugar. I've heard it's very good. For my money, though, nothing tops Ski in a glass bottle.


Dublin Dr Pepper is awesome... I believe that bottler is the only one in the country that still makes Dr Pepper the original way... had someone in TX ship us a case of it a couple years ago... delicious

Looking forward to scoring some of the throwback Pepsi and Mt Dew as well...

I like sodas, but generally drink them in evenings as a sugary pick me up from my workout, favorite current sodas are Cheerwine (cherry soda popular in carolinas) and Manzanita Sol (apple soda from Pepsi thats sold in southwest, and tastes like sparkling apple juice... a reminder of an old soda: Apple Slice)

Please remember: Natural sugar can settle. If your soda has been in the fridge for more than 48 hours, you need to shake the can well to mix the sugar properly.

Well I have looked at several places for this now and I have not found any of them at all.

But I did buy a 6-pack of Dublin Dr. Pepper just now. :drool:

The distribution for this doesn't seem very well implemented. I've gone to about 6 stores in my area and only one of those stores every got a significant supply of the 12 packs. One of the Walmarts in the area had 4 12 packs last week, and they still haven't restocked.

Yep, epic fail ... kinda similar to the dewmocrocy voting on the new flavors... only 'that' one WM would get them, while 2 others... nothing.

It sucks!

are you referring to this?

Never had that but, I kind of agree. I found Cheerwine to be abit boring.


I can only find the throwbacks in the 12 pack cans. Are they shipping them in 20 oz bottles too?

I'm not in the market to ingest dick at this time. If that were to change, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't eat dick with spots on it.

I agree. Also, shake vigorously as the sugar can never be too blended. I also advise opening the can directly in front of one's face to ensure no sugar particulates can be spotted grouping.


(I can't help but think of the Simpson's episode where Bart puts the can of beer in the paint shaker at the hardware store.)

they make a coke during passover, or whatever, that is koscher.....that is really good. Had the pepsi throwback the other day, didn't care for it....tasted kinda like hat pepsi zero stuff


Actually, they make it year-round. Coke has a longstanding bond with the orthodox Jewish community because they were willing to sell into the Israeli market when all of the Arab markets boycotted anyone doing business with Israel. Back in the 70s, a Coca-Cola bottle with Hebrew text and logo was a popular souvenir of a trip to the region.

So if you have a heavily Jewish neighborhood within convenient travel, you can find kosher Coke throughout the year.

I tried to order the Dublin Dr. Pepper but shipping for a 2 -24 case was $25 plus an extra $5 for packaging, grand total $50!!! Shit I rather get a case of beer instead!

Well I tried some yesterday, while it's much better, I really don't like Mountain Dew at all. And the Pepsi didn't taste much different, but than I don't drink much Pepsi at all.

Kmart here forgot to put deposit on the 12-packs of Mountain Dew Throwback, so I was walking out with the equivalent of $1.80 12 packs of cans :D Stockpiled like a fat man at McDonalds.
