Justin Siddons and I picked up some of the new Mountain Dew Throwback and did a side-by-side tasting at lunch. We drank each from a glass, but we used frosty ones for the throwback.
My take: the throwback is smoother, more drinkable, and FEELS sweeter. The regular is more harsh and has a "chemical" taste and FEELS more carbonated. Both Justin and I prefer the Throwback.
I remember hunting down cans and bottles on the way to grade school so i could redeem them at the local Casey's for 16 oz glass bottles of Mountain Dew. The throwback tastes just how i remember it.
Yummy and interesting.
