I'm so not happy about the less sugar change on Coke's part but it certainly looks like they will follow through and people will buy it, considering it a "better" option. My one true vice, and it has to change after 100 years. I miss the old days, when there was public outcry over "new" Coke, never to be seen again when it backfired in a HUGE way.
The formula in Canada was not the "original", over time, the sugar content was increased for whatever reason. The change really just bring the formula for Canada in line with that "100 year old" formula you mention. Personally, other than in general proportions, I don't think there is such a thing as a universal formula for any of the major brand soft drinks anymore. Each market has variation in the types of sugars (cane vs beet vs HFCS vs combo) and local preferences in the level of sweetness or tartness (phosphoric/citric acid).

BTW, Costco regularly sell the 32 pack for $8.79 which is still about 3.5cents more a can than most retail sales of $2.99 for 12. 32 pack is not standard sizing, seems to be exclusive for Costco to prevent price matching but still maintain pricing equity with the current $3.33 for 12 MAP

Coke and Pepsi are equivalent to cigarettes in terms of food.

Their 18 packs are 4.97 starting tomorrow, not the best deal but still 0.27c per can

If you want some variety, although 29 cents a can, Sobeys has their 12 packs on for $3.49

Is Pepsi Throwback still around anywhere? All I want is for cane sugar or at least non-beet sugar to go mainstream in pop! I would happily pay a premium for cane sugar cola. It costs like 4 times as much for those gourmet pops like boylans sadly.

The regular sales of $2.99 for 12 can boxes of different soda including Pepsi and Coke is cheaper at 0.25 cents per can....better deal by being 0.2 cents per can if you can buy it at the $2.99 price. This is RFD after all. :D

How different does throwback Pepsi taste with cane sugar? is it sweeter or just a different flavor altogether than regular Pepsi?

Thanks captain obvious, good luck finding the 12 packs at that price again

If you want to go by cost per ml then the 6 pack 710 ml bottles are always the cheapest when on sale other than 88c 2l bottles

To me it tastes different altogether. I prefer their current standard of sweetening, whatever it is
