If you are older than me you may remember a time when soda, and many other things, came with REAL sugar rather than High Fructose Corn Syrup. No matter if you agree with all the bad press, or the new HFCS commercials, sugar is the REAL DEAL!

Pepsi-Co has announced that they will be making two “throwback” sodas called “Pepsi Throwback” and “Mountain Dew Throwback.” These “throwbacks” will not contain HFCS, but instead have real sugar.

The picture in this post from Serious Eats (where I got the scoop) shows the “throwback” logos. This is a HUGE thing because this means we will be getting Mountain Dew instead of the new Mtn Dew. Maybe shortening the word saves money? Maybe the Dew offices ordered keyboards without O’s, U’s, A’s or I’s?

Either way. I want to try this stuff. I would also like to do an A/B test. If anyone sees this stuff in the stores, let me know!
