Retro Mt. Dew - Throwback Having spent a fair amount of my holiday vacation playing 8-bit video games (yeah, the really old ones) with my son, I was in a mindset that would easily allow me to fall prey to anything retro... even a pepsi product.
Retro Mt. Dew logo I make no secret of my dislike of all Pepsi products. Coke rules and most Pepsi products taste like over-sugared knock-offs. Mt. Dew is the ONE exception to my "fuck Pepsi" shopping habits. Let's face it - it's a tasty product and the Dew Tour is pretty cool. Nuff said.

Imagine my surprise when I went into a convenience store to grab a drink and found this odd Dew container mixed in with the usual Mt. Dew fare. "Made with real sugar" said the label. Fancy that! Could it be that for the holiday season Pepsi won't stunt us with all the usual chemicals that go into the average carbonated beverage?
