pepsi throwback is not as sweet as regular pepsi; so pepsi throwback tastes almost exactly like coke to me

Pepsi Throwback: Sweetened with sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup and in retro-styled packaging.

Well, I guess at least it's "healthier"?

Haven't had either, but there's a place I get tacos that has Mexican coke and I prefer the US version.

i had heard that the cane sugar has close to the same amount of fructose as high fructose corn syrup, which is apparently one of the most unhealthy things about hfcs

Fanta taste different in the US as opposed to Europe. I prefer the europe version of fanta, i'm guessing they use sugar?

"Honey, I thought you loved me."
"I do! What do you mean?"
"A popsicle? You know what they say about high fructose corn syrup."
"No, I don't. What do they say?"
"I... I guess..."
<pleasant music plays> "That it's made from corn? That corn is good for you? That the Corn Refiners of America would like to reassure you that you aren't ignorant about HFCS's ill effects because you are a mindless cow, but because there actually aren't any ill effects at all? Eat more. Eat more. Eat more."

I haven't been able to find either anywhere . . . yes, i remember the late 80's
The Cola Wars were a terrible time; pop shortages were all too common; women and children standing in line for hours for a thimbleful of RC Cola to get them through the week; you kids don't know what it's like; we boiled bark and rubber soles to make root beer for ourselves in those days... I believe this is actually still Moxie's formula... but I digress.

Wouldn't your childhood be the late 70s to mid 80s? I was just making a funny and you had to get all technical on me.

Most of what I remember is the mid 80's period... but Pepsi changed around 1987 or 88 or so i think. I was in junior high.

nimrod only responded that way because you were successful at bothering him about his age.

This commercial makes me want to punch both people in their genitalia.

I would very much like to try Dr. Pepper with cane sugar.

I'm not bothered. Just if you're going to make an age joke it's funnier to choose something from the distant past like cocaine in Coca-Cola

also, i want to mention how i can never find passover coke around passover. but that doesn't worry me since the chevron i just moved next to imports a bunch of stuff from mexico including coke and pepsi.

Thaniel Buckner

that same chevron sells this:

Yeah, mexican coke is everywhere here. In fact nearly every glass bottle of coke is produced in mexico - Costco has them in abundance.

I love the passover coke but I always feel kind of bad buying it, like I'm preventing an actual Jewish person from enjoying a passover-friendly beverage.

This grill place right by me in London had coke with labels that said explicitly that it was only to be sold in Vietnam. Tasted like coke.

this reminds me. Now that I'm (temporarily, damnit) drinking DP again, I need to get me some Dublin Dr Pepper. Thankfully, they sell it at a bunch of places locally now, so I don't have to drive out to fucking Dublin anymore.

I LOVE DUBLIN DR PEPPER.

True, but I thought Costco's entire point is that they buy nationally in bulk in order to keep prices low

Not all Mexican Coke is made with real sugar. Several times I've found convenience stores with Mexican Coke made with HCF. No sale.

I had a mountain dew throwback.. just thought it was a new bottle. tasted the same to me.

I like diet pepsi way better than regular pepsi...

but I have been on a vitamin water kick lately. I'm excited they came out with the 10 calorie ones... but whatever artificual sweetener they are using is way TOO sweet.

My parents have been drinking Diet Pepsi for as long as I can remember. It's so crap, I probably only snagged one or two before deciding "never again..."

I like the Throwback Pepsi, but not the Throwback MD. I think it's got more to do with the lack of orange juice in the Throwback MD than the lack of HFCS.
