Default Pepsi Throwback. Anyone try it?

I was in the grocery store today and saw an old-school looking box of Pepsi soda. Turns out it's this limited time offering of Pepsi made with sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.

I picked some up and wow it tastes so much better than regular Pepsi.

Anyone else hear/try this? I know a lot of people sing the praises of real sugar cola/soda...

I thought I saw an old-school Pepsi logo on a bottle at the store a few days ago. I figured it was just promotional packaging, like those 6 oz Coke bottles you see now and then. I didn't realize it was Pepsi "Classic."

I think I need to stock up. Thanks!

pepsi throwback is great, so was the mountain dew.......it taste so much better with the real sugar, instead of the fructose. to bad it cant be found around my area any more. it was a limited edition. anytime a local store had this it flew off the shelves.

I haven't tried it, but I am a big fan of Mexican Coke, and Pepsi, that can be found at mexican grocery stores and even some upscale markets. The NEVER replaced cane sugar with corn syrup. And it is just as amazing as the stuff I grew up drinking.

In fact my understanding is that Pepsi throwback or whatever the heck they are calling it is really just a response/attempt to keep people from smuggling the mexican stuff into the US and selling it.

Because there is a HUGE "underground" of Mexican pepsi/coke fans.

You can read some articles about mexican coke and it's following here.

They mention pepsi throwback in the nytimes article.

Initially, I thought that this would be a very limited thing.
now...
I'm thinking it is a test market for a summer release.
Cane sugar prices may be low enough for the drink companies to consider going back to it's use in the US market.

Mexican Coke is BIG here in the East Bay. Hell, I can get India Coke at Food Maxx.
Pepsi may be trying to grab some of that market share.

Test?, we in Ohio had Pepsi/Mt. Dew cane sugar products all summer long. I even recall picking a pepsi this spring in Harrisburgh Pa. while traveling. I do agree this stuff is "Great"!

I just started seeing it a couple of weeks ago around here.
There may be a rollout schedule in place.
Test in one region, if it is working -- expand to another.

again, I may be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time
