Mountain Dew Throwback

MDThrowback.jpgWhat sets Mountain Dew Throwback apart from regular Mountain Dew is that it is not made with high-fructose corn syrup, which is prevalent in soft drinks today. Some say that soft drinks made with real sugar taste better than those made with HFCS. Iím not here to debate that issue, just to tell you that Mountain Dew Throwback tastes mighty good. Itís just like I remember it tasting as a kid, drinking it out of a pull-top can or a glass bottle. Of course, the classic Mountain Dew flavor is there. And so is the smooth, pleasant taste of real sugar. The soda is not overly sweet like some soft drinks are. Honestly, I was surprised at the moderate sweetness that it has. That, combined with a low amount of carbonation, made it very easy to drink. I drank the soda on a cold and rainy day, but it would have been perfect for a swelteringly hot July afternoon in Sacramento. A liter or two of Mountain Dew Throwback on a day like that would go down oh so smoothly.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I have to agree. I tried both the Mountain Dew and Pepsi Throwbacks and they taste essentially the same as the "regular" versions but seem much smoother.
