View Full Version : Pepsi and Mountain Dew back in 12 ounce glass bottles
04-09-2013, 12:05 PM
Just bought some 12 ounce Pepsi and Mountain Dew in Glass Bottles. Pepsi in their new bottle and Mountain Dew in long neck, both with sugar only (no HFCS). They are in in 4 packs NDNR., except for Deposit States. It is great to see these return to stores, I have been without since 2001 when A.D. Huesing shut down their glass returnable line. The code on the bottles are PK.

These showed up at the Wegmans and The Wallys Mart in Frederick Maryland this week. They taste good. Real sugar, MMMMMMmmmmm.

This stuff sure is great, clean and crisp taste. I am glad it is the original Pepsi recipe and that it is not Throwback, since Throwback is missing citric acid.

I wonder which regions these will be sold in. Actually the normal Mexi-Pepsis in the "special import" bottles, which are what are found around these parts, are quite good. I'd like to sample these new ones, but as to when/if they'll appear around here, I'm not holding my breath.

Right now there seems to be three different 12oz glass PEPSI bottles. The new bottle design with original formula from plant PK in 4pks., 6 Pack Long Necks from DR Pepper West Jefferson (original formula), and Mexican 12oz the same as Throwback. West Jefferson can be found from smaller bottlers like Memphis, MO (on their website). Anyone know where plant (PK) is located?

Bought some more today, this time from plant (GB). This is good as it confirms there are at least two plants bottling these.

Does anyone have pics of the new Pepsi and Mtn Dew glass bottles?

What the heck happened to this place? In fact what happened to the soda junkies in general? They seemed to have disappeared.
I remember people going crazy over little insignificant changes to some random soda, but now we have the holy grail mountain dew in a glass bottle with sugar and nobody seems to care. (Yes I know West Jefferson is the best but that's not sold in many places outside NC)
Not to mention Pepsi in a glass bottle with sugar possibly in the areas not covered by the imported mexican pepsi. I would think this would be getting more interest.
I'm dying to get my hands on this without having to pay some ungodly shipping charge. Anybody have any idea when this will hit california if at all?

Anybody seen these Mountain Dew bottles in the Phoenix, AZ, area? I've tried several Wal-marts and Targets, with no success.

Anybody seen these Mountain Dew bottles in the Phoenix, AZ, area? I've tried several Wal-marts and Targets, with no success.Some gas stations and convenient stores might have it. I've had Pepsi and Mountain dew from those glass bottles before, and they were awesome.

I saw these glass-bottled Pepsis and Mountain Dews in the Wal-Mart in High Point, NC last week. Those bottles also had the code "PK" on them.

I found both the glass-bottle Pepsi and Mt. Dew at the Walmart in Tappahannock, Virginia, tonight, both with the "PK" code. They were on a special display near the produce section and near another special display of the Pepsi "Special Import" from Mexico.

Confirmed in Wilmington DE as well.

Could I trouble someone to possibly ship me a 4 pack of this?
I talked to Pepsi main office and they have no idea when california will get this, same with the local bottler.

They've made it into Wyoming now. Just bought some (99 cents each) at the local grocery store a couple of blocks from here. Looks like we get the GB code. Jan 30 born on date?

Made its way to UT found in local convenience store PK code.

Maybe we'll get them by Fall here in California.

By the way, grabbed this snapshot of the wood rack they had set up at the local grocery for these:

Those Dew cans are something I've never seen.

You know, I noticed them, but didn't pay that close attention. I think they had some Pepsi ones the first time I was in there, but didn't think to take a photo at that time. The local Pepsi merchandizer is a friend of mine, we both worked for the same railroad contractor a couple of years ago, and as I used to work for Pepsi back in the mid 90s, I talked to him for about an hour or so last week when I ran into him at a local store. He asked me "did you see those aluminum bottles??" and he also noted that he unboxed and assembled that wood rack pictured above. Since aluminum is my least favorite container for Pepsi, and I don't like Mountain Dew at all, I paid only scant attention to the non-glass selections on that rack.
This is about the best I can do for a picture right now - I have like five decent digital cameras but all I had when I was in the store was my crappy cell phone.

Dr Pepper also used the aluminum screw-cap cans last year, though the distribution was very limited.
I also remember Powerade using them for two specialty flavors a long time ago, and Coke used them for canned Caribou Coffee a few years ago.

These 12 oz glass bottle cane sugar sweetened original recipe Pepsi-Colas in the new glass bottle are excellent!
I picked up 6 four pack cartons (case equivalent).. not sure about the twist cap though, I prefer the old style cap which has a different bottle lip.

I just spotted these here in PA in a hess gas station. I picked up a mountain dew. I havent tried it yet though. I also found this wallstreet journal article: http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20130620-708512.html

Found Sundrop in aluminum bottles at a 7-11 in eastern Maryland.

I've seen the four pack in Target stores in Kissimmee florida.
Also see the Mexico coke and pepsi here and plenty of other real sugar brands

These are finally in Southern California. Saw them at a local Wal-Mart but nowhere else.
As far as the dew I never had West Jefferson, and was too young for sugar dew in the 80's, so no idea how it stacks up.
Also it's been awhile since 1st run of throwback, but if I had to guess that's what this tastes like from what little I can remember of it.
The pepsi is more like mexican than throwback cuz my g/f hates throwback and likes the new 4 packs.
Like it, hope the dew is permanent at least, as I can't stand throwback dew in it's current form.

What date and bottler codes are on the ones that you've found? I posted a photo of the ones sold around here, and those were the ONLY dates I ever saw. If you scroll up and look at that image, you'll notice the expiration date was a couple of days ago. I bought out the last few at the local grocery store, leaving only Mexi-Pepsis on the shelf.
