I have a few 12ers of the throwback Mountain Dew, I love the taste with real sugar, I hope that this sticks around for a while!

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
It was in was kind of stealthy marketing. The cans looked the same in color (blue) but had Pepsi in the old script, then it had throwback vertically on one side of the can. And just like that in August they were gone.

we can get mexican coke down here just about anywhere. (personally I prefer Columbian. ) it tastes better; less acidic perhaps? I dunno. I don't really drink soda enough to actually pin point the differences. but if I have the choice down here I'll always take the mexican coke when I want a soda.

The only soda I drink is Mexican Coke. I buy it at Sam's for cheap. Delicious! Doesn't have that overpowering syrup taste. I've tried Dr. Pepper with sugar, better than normal.

if Sam's and Wally World are carrying it, wouldn't that be a real motivator for Pepsico to market a competing product?

I could see a marketing campaign.... Pepsi Throwback -vs- Coke Classic ( with it's corn syrup sweetening ). Real taste? Choose Pepsi.

I have a mexican restaurant down the street from me, and they sell mexican Pepsi (in glass bottles to boot), which is what Pepsi Thowback is. I'll usually order that to drink when I eat there.

I could swear there is a difference between the blue released earlier and this one. The other once was sweeter and had less salt taste.
