Pepsi Throwback was released in 2009, alongside Mountain Dew Throwback, as a sugar sweetened version of Pepsi. This led many to recall the days when the drink did not include high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). The mainstream version of Pepsi available today is sweetened with both HFCS and sugar.

In the United States, Pepsi has begun releasing a glass bottle version of the drink, sweetened only with sugar.

I first mentioned this soda on my Pepsi Blind Tasting, where I compared it to the regular high fructose corn syrup and sugar version we have in the U.S. as well as the […]

Pepsi first attempted a Mountain Dew flavor variant in 1988 with Mountain Dew Red, a fruit flavored Dew that saw only a brief test release.

Thank you to Prodip P, danielsquarepants13, TheGoldenBeasts, Soifool, SuperSuperevil, Bob Smith and nchjdl (who works for PepsiCo) for the request. Do you like Mountain Dew […]

On this episode of Soda Tasting, we’re taking a look at a sugar sweetened version of Mountain Dew produced in the United States. It’s not Mountain Dew Throwback, just an unassuming grass bottle of the popular soda. The name Mountain Dew comes from the moonshine that was produced in Appalachian stills in Tennessee, according to a Bloomberg report. It was created in the 1940s by brothers Ally and Barney Hartman and early bottles featured a depiction of an armed hillbilly […]
On this episode of Soda Tasting, I am going to compare three versions of Pepsi: The mainstream version we have in the U.S., which is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup and sugar, the sugar sweetened glass bottle version produced in the U.S., and Mexican Pepsi, which is also sweetened with sugar. Have you seen the U.S. sugar only, glass bottle version I talked about? Please let me know in the comments. Here is a run down of the sodas […]
