You may all remember that months ago I was talking about how much I would like to try PEPSI THROWBACK, the drink make with real sugar and not high fructose corn syrup. I imagined it to be a liquid trip to the past where Pepsi had some bite to it and Coke was not the caramel sludge it has become.
I am not a coffee drinker but I love a nice cold Pepsi with pretty much everything. I tried going the diet pop route but that aftertaste is a killer. It's like my tongue is sensitive to aspertine.
Brother Jamie heard my plea and sent me SIX of these 20 oz beauties. (I feel like Gimli in Lord of the Rings who asked for one strand of golden hair from Lady Galadrial but she gave him three).
There is definitely a different taste to Throwback that you can recognize right away. Not as much sting as from a regular today Pepsi but I liked the flavor. More of a 'glass bottle' taste if that makes any sense. There is also NO after taste. It tastes like nostalgia - like the homemade pop my buddy makes in his garage.
Thanks again to Jamie for hooking a brother up. One more thing I can cross off my bucket list.
