corn syrup lobbyist keep the subsidies for corn/taxes on sugar high enough to make going all sugar less economic.
Tried some of it and it wasn't anything special. It can have real sugar but if the rest of the formula sucks then it won't matter.
For instance I also tried some of the Jones pure cane cola and it was terrible compared to other colas, and this is considering their other flavored pure cane sodas are amazing (some of my favorites being cherry or strawberry-lime or green apple). Getting the right cola flavor isn't easy, real sugar or not.
Dublin Dr. Pepper rocks! They even sell it in grocery stores around here, although only in the 8oz bottles. I can get 12oz cans but I'd have to drive to Dublin for those.
Throwback Mt. Dew is missing the sensation of something tearing down your throat. It's so smooth.
This is horseshit. I've checked around here, and its nowhere to be found. I did find Mt. Dew Throwback at Wal-Mart last night, but not Pepsi.
Just checked that store locator. Yeah, can't find any within 50 miles carrying it. They carried it last year, but I guess not this year. Fucking assholes. Of course I don't think it even showed up until March last year, so maybe its delayed here.
I like it, tastes like a slightly sweeter version of Coke without the acidic/bitter aftertaste.
I'd love to try the Dr. Pepper version (I drink Dr. Pepper more than anything). Oh well.
Areas around Abilene/West Texas have 16oz cans and 20oz plastic bottles. Around the Abilene area the cost is the same as corn syrup Dr. Pepper. Once you get outside that area there are markups similar to what everyone does to Dublin Dr Pepper. In Lubbock you used to be able to find 8packs of 16oz cans but with the markup they didnt sell well and I havent been able to find those in over a year. The 16oz cans and 20oz bottles are from the Abilene plant. They have 12oz cans as well but do not do the glass bottles Dublin does.
I absolutely LOVED IT in the summer of 2009 for the first release.......I Saw OJ said:Didnt care for it the first time around.
