Never heard of it but I'll look for it now.

I travel a lot and coke made with sugar is deffo tastier than when it is made with HFCS.

Pepsi put it out a few times for a limited run over the last couple of years but now it's apparently permanent!

We haven't had pop like this available in Canada for 30+ years. it was a bit hard to find in it's limited trial runs, but now it's in all the supermarkets.

Enjoy!!

Back in 1990 at Splashdown Park in Tsawwassen there was a Pepsi Challenge booth set up. I was behind them up on some stairs and told every kid which one it was. After about ten minutes of every kid looking up and then picking they finally noticed. One kid didn't believe me.

The only way to get Coke with real sugar is to import it from Mexico. Wetcoaster says the diner in Save ON Meats on Hastings Street serves imported Coke from Mexico which I haven't tried yet, but I plan too.

But Pepsi sells the real deal in canned 12 packs at your local grocer.

Taste a cola like Grandpa tasted it!!

Pepsi Retro/Throwback with REAL SUGAR!

Try it, it's like drinking real pop from the 1960's with real sugar, not corn syrup.

http://en.wikipedia....hrowback_(drink)

Pepsi Throwback/Retro!!

Try it people. It has REAL SUGAR!!!!

Not high fructose corn syrup.


I thought advertising wasn't allowed on the boards, and judging by these posts, I'd assume you work for Pepsi.

I only drink Pepsi at my friend's house, especially if there's nothing else to drink.

It's not just plain ol' Pepsi.....it's Pepsi Throwback with REAL SUGAR!!!

I'm not kidding about this, you gotta try it, it's made with real sugar not high fructose corn syrup,which has been used to sweeten pop since the 80's as a cost cutting measure. Prior to that all pop was made with real sugar. The difference in taste needs to be experienced to be believed.

Been searching for Pepsi Throwback with no luck. There was an 8 week period starting in Oct when it was supposed to be available but that has long passed. Maybe they'll do another run. Dunno.

Save-On and Extrafoods have plenty of it right now. It's been made permanent, no more trial runs. I have a case in my fridge right now. I have been buying it at Extra Foods at Park Royal almost every week since I moved back to the North Shore last October. There was plenty of it available in Surrey at the local Safeway when I was living out there too.

Not every supermarket carries it; for instance the little Safeway in Caulfield doesn't. But most do.

If what I read is correct you might have the overstock that no one else wanted.

I'll just add that it's been available continuously for the past several months after having been released for several short trials over the past three or so years. I sure hope you're not correct and they haven't pulled it again, they had claimed cit was being introduced permanently this time. I last purchased at twelve pack at Extra Foods in Park Royal mall in West Vancouver last Monday.

hudson bay rules, it looks like you are correct about this, I'm getting the same information all over the web. They apparently have broken their word that it would be available on a permanent basis as of the most recent relaunch last October. I guess my local Extra Foods just had a larger than average supply on hand and they haven't run out yet. If they still have some left tomorrow I'm loading up. It can be up to a year before you sometimes see it again and once you get a taste for it regular colas become undrinkable.

you know, i used to love pepsi, but as i've started to age, i've turned in to more of a coke guy. has a distinct taste where pepsi just tastes like sugar water. there are some instances where i'd prefer pepsi over coke, like if i'm eating fast food or something, then i'll have pepsi cause the sugar compliments the fattiness of what i'm eating to shorten my lifespan just a little more
