Pepsi Throwback Returns to Shelves on December 28th

Can of Pepsi Throwback

Although you can still find it occasionally even now, Pepsi Throwback is no longer on the market. But real sugar soda fans rejoice. Pepsi Throwback will be returning to store shelves for another limited run, this time starting on December 28th and running for two months. So make sure you ring in the new year with the good stuff and make sure you tell all your friends.

  1. Both are reported to have new designs. Mountain Dew’s new look has already been confirmed (which I was able to do over at BevReview: http://www.bevreview.com/2009/09/09/new-mountain-dew-throwback-design/). Still working to see what the new Pepsi design will be, but I’m hoping it reflects the prototypes that were leaked back in February: http://www.bevreview.com/2009/02/19/bottle-designs-revealed-for-pepsi-throwback-mountain-dew-throwback/

  2. I’m glad to hear about this. I missed the last run… never even saw a single can. I’m going to have to try harder to get one this time around.

    YES! Still wondering why they don’t make this permanent, the Throwback is a lot better than the current stuff.

    I found out about this late in the first run, but never saw it in the Seattle area despite the Pepsi site listing several stores in my area. I went to Montana and found it prominent in a Safeway in August. I bought 7 half-racks. It is Sooooo good! Much better than the Jones Soda pure cane sugar cola. The Whole Foods house brand cola is actually pretty good…but no caffeine. I will ration until December.

    I’m delighted to see it return.. I REALLY hope they do NOT go with that alternate 1970’s packaging that Steve Tanner linked to above.. I thought the one they did last summer is substantially superior.. The only thing I’d change would be the can logo lettering from darker blue to white or aluminum or a combination of that for better contrast.. The 1970’s look is too generic looking.

    Stick with the old school look!
