    Pepsi and Mt.Dew Throwback, anyone else partaking in these? Made with sugar not corn syrup, less ingredients, old formula. Taste like they did when we were kids. Seen them last summer and now they are back again. They taste great, makes it hard to drink the swill that they have become.

    Tried the Pepsi throwback saved the bottle incase it becomes a collectors item.

    Just slightly different from regular Pepsi not enough difference for me to switch.

    Yep sure can't beat Pepsi,Coke,etc. out of a glass bottle. Glad to see the Pepsi Throwback came out. Tastes like I remember as a kid. I haven't tried the Mt. Dew yet but I love the image of the mountain man with the liquor cork shotting a hole in his hat.

    And to use their own slogan: "You can't beat the real thing"

    I hate the taste of Pepsi, way too sweet.

    I'm a coke guy myself.

    The Sugar blend on the pepsi products, and most recently I had Dr. Pepper today was good, but seemed more mellow. Less of a bite.

    I need to have a real sugar coke to see how i dig it. Probably wont be too much of a night and day experience.

    The Dr. Pepper throwback is nectar of the gods. I rarely drink soda, but I bought a case of this stuff it's so good.

    A former neighbor of mine swears by the Dr. Pepper from www.drpep.com

    "Nectar of the soda Gods" were his exact words.

    That's yummy stuff -- I drank it last time I was in Texas, but it's a little pricey to have shipped anywhere.

    I'm a coke man, and if you're worried about old formulas and cane sugar, you can buy a mexican coke at most big grocery stores these days.

    Is it me or does Coke always taste better when your really hot? .I noticed quite a few years ago that when I cycled in summer and built up a red hot thirst that the energy drink I used always tasted much better than if I drank it normally .Same for Coke .It just has that added zing on my tastebuds.
