Pepsi is releasing Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback, which are sugar sweetened like beaner Coke. If you live in England then you've had this for a while and it's called Pepsi Raw.

Apparently they dropped in April but I have not found them yet.

Does the * represent all other mainstream sodas?

It was discussed on NPR today (with audio, including mini review). (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103825807&ft=1&f=2)

I was going to look for it today but bought beer instead since it's Cinco de Mayo.

I saw it at Target several weeks ago, it was like a 4-pack of bottle and the color scheme was all tan/brown.

it gave me 3 cavities just walking past it.

^ coding fail

if (!sircEnjoysBeverage)...

OR LESS GHEY -

beverage = sircEnjoysBeverage ? "good" : "SUPREME FAGGOTRY" ;

(I even fixed your logic error)

it needed to be slightly readable for others on the forum. "beverage = sircEnjoysBeverage ? "good" : "SUPREME FAGGOTRY" ;" is too cryptic.

but i don't see the logic error. edumacate me.

Thing is, Pepsi fucking sucks.

Also, Mexicoke still comes in Glass Bottles.

Beaner Coke FTW.

The only difference is the real sugar too.

And the glass.

Nearly all drinks taste better in the glass vs. metal.

I saw the Mountain Dew at a Meijer two days ago and I got really excited.















Then I remembered that I was diabetic and that "Diet Mountain Dew Throwback" wasn't a possibility.

got mah hands on this shit today
it's basically the same pepsi flavor, but with a subtler, less offensive sweetness than HFCS Pepsi has. I'm still a coke man, how long before passover coke comes out?

i hear that we don't use HFCS much in australia. the coke and pepsi here have always used cane sugar.

couple of crappy links to back this up (don't have the time to find better sources):

From what I saw, drugs, hormones, additives, etc are met with broad public scorn downunder - its not just the granola-crunchers who get upset.

There's a lot of cool things about the Australian Food Culture. Which is good, 'cuz you bastards still have to make up for Fosters and Marmite.

We don't eat Marmite, we eat Vegemite.

They are both horrible. Your national dish is Crap spread on toast (or Shrimp on the Barbie, take your pick)

I've never seen an actual australian drink Foster's, though.
