Is this not cool or what? Pepsi Co. is getting all old school with their Pepsi and Mountain Dew drinks again. They did this last year and now it’s back and so is the REAL sugar. None of that high fructose corn syrup here and not only are their 12 ounce cans designed retro but so are their 20 ounce bottles. If Pepsi really wanted to get retro, they’d say “screw going green” and give us glass bottles again.
Looks like Mountain Dew went too far back though. What’s this from? The 1960s? I’m actually familiar with that design because I used to go to a Cracker Barrel that had a really cool metal Mountain Dew sign featuring that old hillbilly.
The Pepsi Throwback is just right though. 1980s bliss.
I was so tempted to get one of those 20 ounce bottles, but I resisted. I’m down to only diet soda these days and neither Diet Pepsi nor Diet Mountain Dew got the retro treatment. I guess I’ll just continue to look but not touch.
