    Picked up a case of the Pepsi Throwback. I like it. Its different without being "different". I haven't tried the Mountain Dew Throwback but am interest. I've heard that its just for a limited time, but I wish it would stay because I think the natural sugar pepsi tastes better.

    I wasn't aware that the Coke made in latin america was made with real sugar. I guess I'll have to go down to Eastern Market or Mexican Village and try to get some. I'm not a real big coke fan but am interested in trying it.

    Mexican Coke is great stuff. They sell it at just about every grocery store here in Houston, even Walmart if I'm not mistaken.

    Mexican Coke with real sugar is widely available in Phoenix. You can get it at Costco or Sam's Club by the case.

    The deli down the street from where I grew up stocked a large variety of Boylan's. So good on a hot summer day. Black Cherry is my favorite.
