A lot of people miss the cane sugar sodas we drank as kids, before beverage companies switched to high fructose corn syrup. They savor imported alternatives like Mexican Coke or kosher sodas, but it’s not quite the same.
I’ve got good news for you: the geek elixir, Mountain Dew, which facilitated countless late-night programming sessions since its inception, will be released in cane-sugar format this summer called Mountain Dew Throwback:
“This spring, Pepsi and Mountain Dew are inviting consumers on a nostalgic trip back in time by offering special retro versions of these popular beverages.”
“The Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback packaging feature a retro look and are sweetened with natural sugar, just as they were back in the ’60s and ’70s, to give consumers a taste of the past”
(oh yeah, Pepsi too.)
The program officially starts April 20th but I haven’t found any near me, but I can’t wait!
