Throwback Pepsi, Dew, and The Doc

I had gone into the store a while back and I thought that I would pick up some soda. When I went to the isle, I noticed Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Dr. Pepper, all had gone retro. They have gone back to the old formulas using real sugar. They are branded with the old logos, and old colors.

I purchased 2 boxes of the Pepsi, and 2 boxes of the Dr.Pepper. I am not a fan of Mountain Dew. I used to be until they had a safety article out about how it affects your reproductive system (which is completely a rumor and not factual). Though the rumor has been proven to be false, I still don’t drink it because of the after taste, I just do not care for it.

The New throwbacks, are great. I have only tried the Pepsi, and Dr.Pepper. I am usually a Coca-cola fan, but I really liked the introduction of the real sugar into the Pepsi vintage formula. I think it brought the purpose of soda back into the equation. You drink soda to be more alert, and have more energy. So with the sugar you get the sugar high, as well as the caffeine high. Of course the crash is harsh lol.

I really like the fact that they used the older graphics and designs to adorn the boxes, cans, and bottles. Really made you want to keep the boxes even after they were empty. I grew up in the 80’s early 90’s and I personally remember the red and blue Pepsi logo that they have on their throwback boxes. I also remember when they had Crystal Pepsi. Crystal Pepsi was a clear Pepsi with the same flavor.

So here are a few shots of the throwbacks from Pepsi Co.

Unfortunately you will not be able to rush out to your local supermarket and buy a pallet for yourself. These were available for an extremely short limited time (December 28, 2009 – February 22, 2010)  You may be able to find some people selling them online either ebay or google. I still have a case of Pepsi, of which I haven’t opened, I want to keep them for when I get a vintage Can soda vending machine and stock them with them. You can check out Pepsi’s website for these limited edition flavors at: http://www.pepsithrowbackhub.com/
