I definitely agree with you about it not tasting any differently. I would have to say that the mountain dew is the better of the Throwbacks.


I think the only time you can taste the difference is in the aftertaste, it just tastes a little better at the end.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Tried a Pepsi tonight. I'd have to agree the after taste is different.

I want to try that heritage dr. pepper, this time the stores around here don't seem to be stocking this stuff like last time.

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'm not the biggest soda drinker in the world, but I love this, especially the Pepsi. I'll have to stock up once I get some extra cash.

Just a nice FYI this run of Mountain Dew Throwback has orange juice concentrate added in. That should explain the better taste this time around since Mountain Dew originally had orange juice concentrate in it. The first run from last year was lacking it however.

New sig coming soon.

The ingredients list on the bottles last time around listed the orange juice. I remember thinking it strange that it was there. I thought I still had one of the bottles, but I just recently cleaned out my car. (yeah it was a mess.) I definitely remember from comparing labels of throwback to regular.

From BevReview:

Mountain Dew Throwback (April 2009 Version)
Carbonated water, sugar, citric acid, natural and artificial flavor, sodium benzoate (preserves freshness), caffeine, gum arabic, brominated vegetable oil, Yellow 5

Mountain Dew Throwback (December 2009 Version)
Carbonated water, sugar, orange juice concentrate, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium benzoate (preserves freshness), caffeine, sodium citrate, gum arabic, erythorbic acid (preserves freshness), calcium disodium EDTA (to protect flavor), brominated vegetable oil, Yellow 5

HFCS Mountain Dew
Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, concentrated orange juice, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium benzoate (preserves freshness), caffeine, sodium citrate, erythorbic acid (preserves freshness), gum arabic, calcium disodium EDTA (to protect flavor), brominated vegetable oil, Yellow 5


Looks like the current Throwback is pretty much the same as the HFCS version except for the sugar type used.

New sig coming soon.

I tried the Pepsi last weekend. I liked it better than the current shit. I saw some Mt. Dew at Target yesterday, but didn't buy any. Would like to try it.

My local Walmart has Throwback Pepsi, I bought all their stock. They had Throwback Mountain Dew but I don't care for Mountain Dew.

I'm loving these throwback drinks. For health reasons, I'm not supposed to be eating or drinking anything with HFCS. I'm hoping this stuff stays around, otherwise its back to buying specialty sodas at Trader Joe's.

Apparently the Heritage Dr. Pepper's are only available where Dr. Pepper is also bottled by Pepsi.

And stock varies as well. The release is supposed to be on an 8 week run starting Dec. 28th, but I didn't see anything appear on store shelves around here until the middle of January.

I stocked up at Target last week when they had a sale on Pepsi products. I wasn't really that impressed by Heritage Dr. Pepper, but I'm glad to have the return of Pepsi Throwback. They need to make this stuff year round.

If they can keep the Pepsi in stock around here, I'll switch from Coke.

Heritage Dr. Pepper has a really strange aftertaste unlike Throwback Mountain Dew (which I love)

My local Wal-Mart had a giant stack of 12 packs of all three. I'll need to go grab some more Throwback Mountain Dew.

So far, the only 2 places I've seen the Pepsi or Mt. Dew in Chicago are:

Jewel
Target

My Super Target is supposed to carry it, but unfortunately the Pepsi plant can't keep up with the demand.

I really don't feel like going out of town just to try it... so I'll wait and pray (not really) that we get some in.

Found the Throwback Pepsi and Mt. Dew in 20 oz. bottles yesterday. The Dew is pretty good. I only bought one, since I don't really drink Dew anymore.
