Pepsi Throwback Groovy Retro Giveaway



If you're like me and love all things retro, you are going to love Pepsi's new Throwback look and taste. This spring, Pepsi and Mountain Dew are inviting consumers on a nostalgic trip back in time by offering special retro versions of the two beverages.



Not only is the packaging retro cool, but the beverages themselves are sweetened with natural sugar, just like they were in the 60's and 70's. Now you can get a "taste of the past" when you try Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback!

"As we revamp our brand with our 'refresh everything' campaign, we want to give a nod to the fun things of the past," said Anamaria Irazabal, director of marketing, Pepsi-Cola North America Beverages. "For some it will be a trip down memory lane, but for others it will be a chance to experience a new twist on their favorite brands."

Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback will be available nationwide for about seven more weeks and are available in 20-ounce, single-serve bottles and 12-pack cans.

Visit PepsiThrowbackHub.com for cool desktop threads, tools for giving your blog a throwback look, and more!



To help celebrate the throwback campaign, Pepsi is giving away a fun package (pictured above) of retro goodies to one lucky reader of So a Blonde Walks Into a Review. The winner will receive:
  • Pepsi Throwback Trucker Cap
  • Retro Pepsi Tin Lunch Box
  • Retro Clock Radio/CD Player

I love the taste of Pepsi, but I also like the history. The small town my Dad grew up in was apparently too small for Coke to deal with. They called all pop "Pepsi".

Whatever Pepsi puts in their sugary bubbly drink, that flavor seems to taste better than Coca Cola.

Pepsi in the 70s, with real sugar was so darn good. I am tickled pink they are bringing it back. What a fantastic idea! Go Pepsi!

Back in 1971 when I was very small, I had Mountain Dew for the first time on vacation. It was amazing. They didn't sell it where I lived until many years later and it was never quite the same. I can't wait to try the throwback and see if it is the same taste that I remember.

Pepsi throws me back to 30+ years. My mom was an addicted (still is!) Pepsi drinker. I can remember hauling those 8-pack tall bottles of Pepsi in the cardboard holder into the house on each grocery shopping trip. Mom was the only one that could open a Pepsi, but if she sat it down it was gone because me and my sisters would sneak sips of it. Good memories. I can also remember the fat bottles with the styrofoam around them, after you drank the pop you would slowly pull the strofoam down 1/2 way off the bottle than slam it for a loud pop (like a bag). I've also been around long enough to remember pull tabs, we would go camping and so much pop would be drank we could make jump ropes, necklaces, you name it out of curling one tab around the other. Doesn't take much to amuse little kids does it? LOL. Thank you for the chance. I am looking forward to trying the new (old) Pepsi throwback.
