Throwback

I was shopping at Costco today and noticed they now carry Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback.  Both versions are made with real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup like the regular versions.

The difference in flavor between Pepsi and Pepsi Throwback is fairly subtle.  The latter is a bit smoother and slightly sweeter.  The Mountain Dew Throwback, on the other hand, tastes significantly bettert.  The sugar-sweetened version is much crisper and the flavor bolder than its HFCS counterpart.

The packaging says that it's for a limited time only, however they are priced only slightly higher than the regular versions.  Costco was selling the 18 count cases for $4.99, while a 36 count case of regular Pepsi or Mt. Dew usually goes for around $9.
