"Original Formula" Mt Dew & Pepsi

Now that I've tried both, I have to say that pepsi is just bad no matter how it's made. But the throwback pepsi is a bit more bearable.

Mt Dew on the other hand, tastes much better. I did a blind taste test and could tell the difference by a mile. I'd buy regular Dew much more often if they made it with reugular sugar allthe time.

i will have to try it again, but I think I prefer the new dew not the throwback... which is surprising.

Just found a 20 oz throwback Dew today. The new Dew with real sugar taste better than the regular but Mountain Dew is still gross.

Saw some 12 packs of Dew and Pepsi at Target, but couldn't find the 20oz bottles.

Yeah, they're part of the 3 for $10 sale here, I might have to grab a case after hearing positive comments about it.

Had to drive 20 minutes to get some. The place supposedly only had 20 oz. bottles, but turned out to have 12 packs of the Mountain Dew. I picked up 1 of those and a 20 oz. bottle of Pepsi Throwback for about $5.50 total.

I rarely drink soda, and I'm just finishing up my cherry Dr. Pepper 20 oz. from over a week ago. But hopefully the Throwbacks are worth it.

.... And I just tried some of the Pepsi. It seems smoother... less tangy and less bubbly. Pretty good, but I don't have regular Pepsi to compare it to. With Mountain Dew, I'll be able to compare.

I've got a case of the Mt. Dew Throwback and I really like it, but I like regular Dew anyway. I haven't tried them side-by-side but I think the Throwback is a little less sweet than regular.

I can't stand Pepsi in any form so I won't be trying that.

I agree. I just tried regular Mountain Dew followed by Throwback. Throwback has less zip/tang to it, but I like it better. My mom, a daily drinker of "new" Mountain Dew, prefers the HFCS formula.

Yeah I can't stand the taste of Pepsi either but the new Throwback Pepsi is pretty good, no bad after taste. I was surprise since I normally hated the taste of Pepsi.

I bought the throwback Pepsi a week ago before I knew they changed anything, just thinking it was a new case and can design and I didn't really notice a difference.

I think he means their store brand of coke. All of their sodas are made with natural ingredients (obviously)

Haven't tried them (or the new pepsi/mt dew) yet.. but really have been wanting soda lately..so I might try these all soon.

Its the store brand. 365 I think its called. It seems to have the same ingredients as Pepsi Natural. I highly suggest it. It has a great nutty taste.

Grabbed a 12 of each when I saw them, but sadly I have not seen it ANYWHERE since. So much for a 6-8 week run.

These are back for a limited time again. I've found the Mountain Dew, but not the Pepsi.

It's almost a moot point for me as I found a store that sells Mexican Coke. But I prefer Mtn Dew over colas so it's cool that it's back.

I saw 12-pack cans of dr. pepper, pepsi, and mountain dew at the Wegmans near me (they also have Mexican Coke and Mexican Fanta regularly). Hadn't tried the Dr. Pepper so I picked that one up. It's good, I'm not sure I can tell as much of a difference though.

Why are these limited? They taste so good. Why not just make them all the time?

This. Remember to sue the Fuck out of Pepsi Co./Coca Cola when we all get really fucked up due to the amount of corn syrup in everything we eat/drink.

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.
