Throwback Pepsi and Mountain Dew Cans

Have you seen the limited edition Throwback Pepsi and Mountain Dew cans yet?

I ran out of my staple Diet Dew while snowed in last week, so when I finally got dug out to buy groceries, I saw these Vintage Pepsi and Dew cans and grabbed them thinking my kids would think they are cool. *Pepsi products are currently on sale at Target (4/$12 in my area, regions vary), and there is a $1 off printable coupon = $2 Pepsi packs!

My kids weren't as excited about the retro style cans as I was, but I thought they'd drink them anyway.  I thought wrong as I didn't realize that not only is the can different, but so is the recipe. These are made with “real sugar”, not the high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and my kids hate the taste! Old schoolers though are commenting on CrunchGear that they taste better.

I personally haven't tried them. Being a recovering hardcore Pepsi addict, I'm afraid I'll like them too much! But we are due to receive another snow storm this week, so if I run out of Diet Dew again, I may cave.  Now if I could stop drinking pop all together! Do you call it soda or pop?

P.S. Did you know orange soda has caffeine in it? I didn't either.
