Yes, they do expire. But these Throwback has a long shelf life. The pack I got is good until next February.
WOW! So, maybe sugar lasts longer than that sugar/glucose-fructose mix...(?)

Throwback has less sodium than Pepsi with Real Sugar.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

That's great. Too bad it doesn't have just a little less sugar count.

I thought pop was supposed to last about 1yr...depends on when it was bottled/canned I guess..

Will definitely hoard....good to know it has less sodium over Pepsi made with Real Sugar..i would have thought it was the same recipe!

Though 40g of sugar....damn, no wonder I look like I am pregnant!

That blue box Pepsi seems to be a real sugar version as well.

Same thing. Packaging is different. I've bought the blue one in the USA many times.

At Subway, I bought a drink the other day because it came with a free sandwich (a pretty epic coupon!) and got to try their fancy digital drink machine. One of the options was "real sugar". I wonder if that is temporary or not. I went for a Diet Pepsi with Cherry, Vanilla and lemon (you can only select 3 flavours, so I had to forgo strawberry). Not as bad as the time I made a grape juice milk shake, put pretty close. :)
Toronto is a very small part of Canada

Some flavours have a longer shelf life than others. Anything Diet and Citrus centric only seem to have a few months of shelf life (Diet Dew and 7up) while others like Crush, Ale and Pepsi are around the 9-10 month life span.

I just put out a pallet of the Throwback at Freshco and Walmart in the Oakville area this week. Look like the label said it was made and packed around the 10th of May and good until mid February. Wild Cherry is suppose to be a perminent flavour and the other Pepsi Lemon (although i think its being called Pepsi Slice or something) will be here in Late June of Mid July for a limited time and only seem to be a cooler 591ml bottle.

Cinnamon flavoured cola LOL

American feedback is not so good so far though...

"Pepsi Fire will be available from May 22 until the end of June (you can also get it in slurpee form), from select 711’s across the U.S..."
