pepsi sugar throwback

Both Mountain Dew and Pepsi cola have now introduced the pepsi sugar throwback editions of their soda which are sweetened with real cane sugar as opposed to the HFCS sugar replacement used in many sodas today.

Pepsi has been using HFCS, a fructose corn syrup, to sweeten their cola instead of sugar, but a limited edition supply of Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback are now available and are made with real sugar. The Throwback sodas can be found in regular grocery stores and supermarkets.

On March 11, 2011, PepsiCo announced that both Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback would become permanent additions to the Pepsi and Mountain Dew product lines

As blogged before we have around fifty cane farms on our land in Fiji so any move away from  HFCS to cane sugar is good move for us.

 It would be interesting to work out if the permanent addition was really influenced by a 20,000-member Facebook campaign or the fact that corn prices have increased substantially due to ethanol use.
