Found the 20oz Dew today at Walgreens. It was the last bottle they had in the fridge which was right next to at least six-seven rows of the "regular" artificial sugar based Dew. Forgot to check if they had any cases in. No signs of Pepsi either.

Taste wise compared to the artificial sugar based Dew its not as ultra sweet tasting but its much smoother. Its very enjoyable and certainly worth trying out. If you are looking for something with cane sugar that still has that ultra sweet taste to it I'd recommend the Green Apple flavor from Jones Soda. It does have a little of a sour to it which you would expect given the flavor. But it certainly hits the sweet spot.

:puke:

That stuff tastes like chemicals, not soda.

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


Yeah, tasty chemicals!

I hope this becomes the new standard, like how General Mills switched to whole grain.
Besides, sugar is healthier than HFCS, just remember to take sweets in moderation, fellow Americans.

Bought a bottle of both last night.

Wasn't a fan of the Pepsi.

The Dew was thisclose to having me drink non-diet sodas again

That's not what the commercials from the corn refiners association say!

Just found 12 packs for both Pepsi and Dew today at Super America. They actually had a print out saying "THESE ARE NOT REGULAR PEPSI" and "THESE ARE NOT REGULAR MOUNTAIN DEW" above them. I guess its either because they feel people can't read the Throwback on the box or so people will know right away that neither of these are part of whatever Pepsi product sales they run.

Just put a few in the fridge. Will give a review on Pepsi in a bit.

I had a mountain dew throwback last night with a regular mountain dew and the taste difference was pretty obvious. Hope they keep throwback around forever. :0)

We have had them here in the glass for a long time with Pepsi, Coke, Squirt, and a few others here in So Cal at most Mexican food places. They are good. I can taste the difference more with coke then Pepsi with the real sugar. It is much better. I have read that Coke is going in the other direction they want to make sure that none of the real stuff makes it into the US anymore cause it sells better then the regular stuff they don't like that to much. Most of the states are here in the Desert Southwest but they want to stop with the real stuff down here very soon from what I have herd.

Likewise, I can't find any in Southern California. Are these only in some states or something?

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?


Bought a few 20ozs from Wal Mart. For some reason they were on a random aisle about as far way from the soda aisle as possible.

Throwback Mt Dew tastes like a less carbonated version of Mellow Yellow

Got most of the HFCS out of my diet as hard as it is these days - I might have to give this a shot.

I don't know what the Fuck you just said, little man, but it was special. Reached out, and touched a brotha's heart.

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.

I'm glad to find others are as happy about this as i am. :)

I enjoy the "Throwbacks" for both Pepsi & Mtn Dew, they actually taste like i remember from my childhood. I had forgotten how much the taste changed.

Hoping these stick around for a while. Maybe they'll eventually make Livewire with sugar! ;)

Just wish they would bring back the short 16oz glass bottles with the styrofoam labels that acted as insulation....

I picked up a 12 of Dew this afternoon and I'm very happy to report that it is not only made with real sugar but also with WIN! Its really good! Its a bit more subdued than regular Dew. That is to say it greets the palate smoothly. I'm very pleased and I hope they keep it around for a while. Pepsi, you're next!

I tried the Pepsi today, couldn't find the Mt Dew.

The taste difference isn't huge, but it's there. Good stuff.

I got to try some of the pepsi throwback yesterday. I thought it was good, but I couldn't notice a huge difference. I hope they keep it around for a while.

I got some of the pepsi over the weekend, there is definitely a difference in the taste, it seems less sweet. I like it.

Had a bottle of the Mountain Dew over the weekend as I drove up to C-bus. Color me impressed. The flavor was different enough, yet similar. The biggest difference to me, and I may be wrong since I don't drink Dew often and nobody else has mentioned it - this drink seems "thinner" than standard Dew.

Like, it didn't feel as heavy/syrupy, nor did it feel like it left a sugary coating on my throat. It tasted good and then disappeared.

That was the best part about it, honestly.

If it tastes as different as Coke Light tastes as opposed to Diet Coke, then I'm in on this.

I hope they're testing this out to see if people like it, maybe if it sells well they'll keep making it.

My thoughts exactly. I want to try a bottled version though, I had a can and felt that drinking it was more to the liking of flavored water, than say heavy syrup soda.

It went down smooth, and didn't have a heavy sweet, just a regular sweet. Like what sugar is!

I am hoping they will release it to other stores, so far only one WM has it... and it makes me sad... out of the way to get there.

I think if they got rid of the brominated oil, Mt Dew would taste better... but that's just an opinion...

Let me know if anyone in So Cal spots this. I tried my local Ralph's and got bupkus. I'll look at Target or Albertsons if I know the ones in the area might be stocking it.
