Real-Sugar Pepsi

Posted on 20 February 2009

In the middle of April, Pepsi also will begin distributing Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback, which features those brands formulated with sugar.

This is a big deal since mainstream soft drinks in the United States are sweetened with High Fructose Corn Syrup. Typically, the only way to get soda from the “big guys” with real sugar is to import it (i.e., Mexican Coke) or wait till Passover (Kosher Coke, Kosher Pepsi).

Bev Review

I’m a diet-Coke drinker, specifically “Coke Zero”, but I hear there is a big difference between real-sugar and HF Corn Syrup. I’ll definitely try Pepsi Throwback. Even fans of Coke should support the product if they want a real-sugar version of their own favorite beverage.

Unfortunate name choice though. “Thowback?” Really?

The imagery conjured up by this naming choice is one of a man curling his lip in disgust and “throwing it back” at the grocer. Sometimes even when they get it right, they get it wrong.
