  • Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback

    It appears Pepsi Bottling Ventures will be releasing versions of Pepsi and Mountain Dew this spring made with sugar instead of HFCS. They'll be known as Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback. It's mentioned in this article: Bottler of the Year: Pepsi Bottling Ventures - Cover Story - Beverage Industry

    and also in this message board post, four down, by ffmariners: Target: Four 12 packs of Mountain Dew for $5.51 + tax (YMMV, of course!) - Page 6 - SlickDeals.net Forums

    although his information is somewhat dubious, as he includes Diet Pepsi and I don't believe Diet Pepsi would have ever contained sugar. Nonetheless, it appears to be real and coming soon :-).

    LOL, maybe for Diet Pepsi they'll go back to the sodium saccharin and cyclamates formula from the mid 1960s!

    Throwback is going to the be name of the sugar-versions? Okay.... Maybe it won't be that odd Pepsi Retro formulation that is in Mexico after all.

        Excellent find and background info, ThePieHole! For those of us who never got to experience Raw or Retro, this is a nice thing!

        Ramon posted the Pepsi logo. I found the Dew logo as well:


        Per my research jumping around USPTO, it appears that PepsiCo locked down both "Mountain Dew Throwback" and the new logo spelling, "Mtn Dew Throwback". By the looks of this image (and duh, because it's retro), looks like they went the sensible route.

        I couldn't find any other products with a "Throwback" moniker. I was sort of hoping for "Slice Throwback", but given Pepsi's new deal with Crush, that wasn't a realistic hope.

              Finally something that is actually interesting from Pepsi. Those tall aluminum bottles are cool too. I wonder if this throw back stuff will be packaged in a unique manner.

                Well, it pretty much goes without saying what type of package I'd like it to be in...!

                  I certainly hope these products make it to the Boston area. Is there any info confirming the various Pepsi bottlers from all regions of the country will be producing the Throwback lines?

                  Now let us wish for Dr Pepper-Snapple to bring back RC Draft Cola and for Coca-Cola to do the right thing and have all bottlers produce sugar-sweetened sodas again.

                        Now that's a good batch of news. Ruby Red Sierra Mist? Interesting.

                          Interesting... it felt like I was the only person in my area buying Diet NFL Kickoff. The regular version seemed to do a bit better.

                          Looking forward to Ruby Red Sierra Mist and the return of (no longer Undercover?) Orange as well. And of course, the Throwbacks.

                            I like how Pepsi is continuing to introduce new sodas and re introduce seasonal sodas as well. It would be nice if Coca-Cola did the same.
