Pepsi "Throwback" Soda


When I was a kid and growing up there was never soda/pop in the house. I drank a lot of kool-aid. The only time we had pop was in the summer when we went on picnic's. Then the choices were orange, grape, or rootbeer. I don't think I drank a cola until I was about 14. I'm not sure what my parents thoughts were about pop, but they probably figured out that it wasn't good for you even back then.

The choices in cola's were Pepsi, Coke, or RC Cola. I love Pepsi, but for the last few years I have rarely drank soda. I was grocery shopping today...the juices happen to be in the soda aisle. As I glanced at the soda choices the old retro Pepsi colors were right there staring back at me. Felt like I was in a time warp. Stamped on the carton was Throwback. The only thing missing was the swirly, glass bottle.

Well that "throwback" is soooo much better then the high fructose version. It tastes like the Pepsi I first drank when I was a teenager. Throwback is a "limited time product." Pepsi why don't you keep the sugar version? I think most people would enjoy it a lot more. Overall soda isn't good for us, but for an occasional treat it would be nice to have a bit healthier choice.

I visited the Pepsi site to find out more information and found the link to PepsiRefreshProject...very cool! Pepsi is giving away funds to support great ideas. You can vote for your favorite!

My parents only bought soda around the holidays. I am going to have to buy one of those Pepsis for a trip down memory lane.

These throwback sodas (there are several types available) are so much better than the new versions. I had forgotten how much better they are. Maybe that's why we rarely drink them now?

I'd like to buy it just for the can. I'm longing for simplier times too.

Yeah, I remember we only drank the fake kool-aid drinks and water. Sodas were for special occasions and it did seem like it was always orange, grape of creme Shasta! lol...never again kind of Cola. I'll have to get some of this for my hubby. He's a soda junkie :)

LOL - I'm in the process of quitting Diet Coke. It's been almost a week. The first few days were Hell. Where's the 12 step program for Coke Addicts??
