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).
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?
