Pepsi Throwback no longer in Canada (was here in May 2017 - limited time only)

Sept 17, 2017
Whelp, looks like gone again as promised.....only here until summer. Was able to snag 2x 12pks at my local Loblaws (hidden in the back) - stragglers...

May 23, 2017
Confirmed by a few fellow RFDers - Pepsi Throwback is back in Canada for a limited time!

Loblaws has it - others should be getting it next week:

**Previous edit - Confirmed that Pepsi Throwback is no longer available in Canada (it was only available for 8 weeks starting in Oct 2012)**


OP - Jan 14, 2013

Having run out of Pepsi Throwback, I was looking for it this weekend at my local Costco (where I first found it)...I was surprised I couldn't find it at the Costco..

So I decided to go to my local Loblaws (where I also found it before) and couldn't find it anywhere....lastly, I tried my local Walmart but also couldn't find it...

Anyone spot Pepsi Throwback in January in the GTA? Let me know...thanks!

I haven't seen it for a while... I was kind of PO'd because it's so much better than the regular stuff. I should have stocked up.

I don't think it tastes any different than the regular stuff. It's just the can design... kinda like how coke has christmas cans
No, the throw back is made with sugar while regular Pepsi is corn syrup.

Soda pop with cane sugar vs high fructose corn syrup('sugar-glucose/fructose' in Canada). There is a difference in taste and it's surprising.

I have noticed that Pepsi Throwback has disappeared from my local grocery stores. I am disappointed as I really did enjoy Throwback the difference between Corn Syrup and real sugar is amazing.

You should be able to find it...

From Pepsi Throwback Wiki page (link):
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.
I find Target has the best pop selection, but Walmart has better prices. Personally, I've seen Pepsi Throwback at both locations. However, I haven't been there in about 6 months.

Shouldve bought a pack when I had the chance now I either have to wait for them to bring back(which I highly doubt) or cross the border.

Its the same foe jalapenos cheetoes, it was available at my local sdm three months ago now theyre no where to be found.
