Kickin' it Old Skool

Check out the new/old release from Pepsi:

Throwback! Both sodas are made with natural sugar, as they were in the 60s-70s, instead of high-fructose corn syrup like they are now. And the packaging is neat, all retro-style. You can read more here if you want. But it's only around for a limited time, and that limited time began about two months ago. Since the first week, we have not found these anywhere, despite hearing rumors that Pepsi Co is making more (even then we only found cans, no bottles). I'm not trying to advertise for Pepsi or anything; in fact, I don't even drink much soda (I'd much rather waste the calories on candy or something equally empty). But TG was super stoked for these, and I was pretty intringued as well. Fortunately Target had it AND it was on SALE (maybe that's why it tasted so good)!  The drink itself is pretty good, almost tastes less carbonated than regular soda-- but that's ok, it's the same reason I like Coke in glass bottles better. So now here we are with no more Throwback, unless Pepsi decides to rerun it. Ever. 

Keep your eyes peeled, they usually mix Throwback in with the regular soda, so you have to look at the packaging to make sure you got the right one. And if you do....mmmm enjoy it, cuz its' time is limited!

Is it not completely sad that we consider use of sugar as opposed to HFCS as "retro"?
