Throwback Sody Pop

Sody pop with real sugar is super duper healthy!

Wow, I feel like I'm power-blogging with my pretty regular and absolutely whopping one-post-a-week schedule. You'd almost think it was 2007 or something!

I know Throwback Pepsi and the other retro beverages are old news. I'm not trying to be some soda hipster breaking the news or bragging that I'd bought it X many years ago.

There are two types of people in this world: Soda pop connoisseurs, people who're indifferent, and people who can't count. A friend, a self-proclaimed pop connoisseur, always offered me a Throwback version of Pepsi, Mountain Dew or Dr Pepper. And I always accepted. After all, they contain less sugar than their high fructose corn syrup counterparts, yet taste better. It's like magic!

Ah, if only we could infuse the retro magic of the 80s into everything we eat, drink, touch and drive. I'm about to go off on a small tangent about how cars today have the most uncomfortable fake "sporty" suspension and the numbest steering in history, so if you don't want to read about why I love my iconic 1980's sports car more than anything any manufacturer is putting out today, you can skip to the next paragraph.

Too late.

Oh I nearly forgot. I'm also mad. My Throwback supply is nearly diminished and there have been no reinforcements sent to Canada from PepsiCo.

A press release I read somewhere indicated PepsiCo applied for and was granted permission from the FDA to add Throwback soda pop to its permanent product line. So they'd better make haste and ship those bitches up here soon. I need a premium product to mix my musty Maker's Mark with.

I have a secret to tell you. The Dr Pepper and Mountain Dew cans are empty. They were the only ones I had. But I still have Throwback Pepsi. It expired in Feb. That's the downside to real sugar.

It's not always available, but look for it. The packaging is pretty obvious because of its retro-ness.

Mexico uses real sugar in the Coke. My son got a hold of one from a friend (who's mexican). It tastes SO much better than the crap the US produces.

I haven't seen any "Throwback" stuff here. Yet.

That's very interesting! I have heard that Cke still makes limited production of real sugar Coke for Kosher purposes. HFCS can't be deemed Kosher.

I gave up soft drinks years ago, but drank them a lot in my youth. I recall the "New" Coke!
