Default Pepsi Throwback

Pepsi Throwback. Made with real sugar instead of nasty high fructose corn syrup.

I don't usually drink soda, but when I do I prefer that it NOT taste like god damned corn. So, this stuff is a major win.

It's been out in Mexico for at least a year.

My father in law is real big into it, and brought back a case. It's pretty good, and I'm not big into brown sodas.

I got a 12 pack of Mountain Dew Throwback over the weekend. I figured it might actually be good. Unforgently I was wrong and now have to drink 12 of them. To me it was right in the middle of how diet MD and regular MD taste and I cannot stand it.

I was really hoping the Mt. Dew throwback would be good but you're right, it wasn't. I think it tastes like Mello Yello, or some garbage like that.

The Pepsi throwback is decent, and goes well with my whiskey.

Jones Soda also makes a cane sugar cola. it's about the only thing I've found that doesn't have wacky weird flavors.

I got one in a plastic bottle, tasted like ****. I wonder if it needs to be in the original glass bottles (like I used to drink when I was a kid in Ohio).

Pepsi with sugar has been available bottled in Mexico for years (afaik they've always made it with sugar down there, but could be wrong). Can get it in any Mexisupply store, especially in the southwestern states.

I'm almost 100% sure they have real sugar in the Pepsi and Mountain Dew products we get here in Afghanistan.

Default coke

For the past couple years i have enjoyed going to costco to buy coke because they have the glass bottled coke that is made in mexico with real cane sugar, and its pretty good. I think all sodas lose something though when they get injected into aluminum.

The sweet potato with just about anything was surprisingly good.

What can I say you were blessed(or cursed) with a fast metabolism. However, putting on weight via "waist line poison" is not healthy either.

Im 6'1'' 190lbs. At my heaviest I was 225, at my lightest I was 160.
