It’s Official Pepsi Throwback is Back for Good

We all kind of “knew” it was officially back and that it would probably be back for good, but now there is no doubt about it. According to press releases and their Facebook Fan Page, Pepsi Throwback is now an official and fully distributed soft drink that will be available all year round.

I had my doubt about how long Throwback would last, but this is great news. Especially since this is pretty much all I drink now at home when I want a soft drink. That in itself, as a life long Coke drinker, has come as quite a shock even to me. I applaud Pepsi for giving the consumer a quality non-HFCS cola alternative and encourage everyone to pick some up this weekend to celebrate.

Update 3/16 – I emailed Pepsi people and asked them about the Dew and its availability in Canada. They said yes to the Dew and they said that Throwback IS NOT officially available in Canada on a permanent basis.

Currently, Throwback is only available permanently in the US.

    Now how about Diet Throwback with Splenda! 🙂

    Great idea, but I think Diet Throwback would have to have saccharine to be really a truer “throwback”.

    Now bring back Hostess Chocodiles to those of us who don’t live in CA.

    Good call. Love the Chocodiles.

    They have them in states besides California, but it seems so random.

    Thanks for the heads up, when I liked the link on facebook I scored a buy one get one free coupon on a twelve pack and immediately went out and used it. I love pepsi throwback. I have a PTA, pepsi throwback addiction.

    Does this mean that Mountain Dew Throwback is back permanently ? I love that. The last couple of summers, I had that then had to go back to “regular” Dew. Let me tell you, you can really tell the difference. Throwback is so much better.

  12. The Retroist

    From what I understand the Dew is back as well.

    Added an update for Canadian drinkers of Pepsi.

    Not terribly surprised by Canada’s exclusion from the retro soda goodness.

    Still, I believe I’d borrow a wise saying by my freshly de-platformed furry friend Q*Bert on the matter.
    If you know what I mean.
