Pepsi is reintroducing what's become a novel idea, sweetening their soft drinks with Sugar - REAL SUGAR!!! The "new" product should hit the shelves in April. They're calling the product Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback.
Coke already has a sugar alternative to the HFCS available but it's hecho en Mexico - the only place you can get it in Columbia is Immaculate Consumption. If you've never had one - you should, there is a marked difference in the taste of the drink.
Kotke has an idea why the Coke Product has limited availablity and Pepsi will not make it a permanent member of the soft drink pantheon:
Pepsi and Coke don't want to permanently introduce sugared versions of their products -- it would take away from their main products' market share and it would mean admitting that the HFCS versions are inferiorBe prepared for the Corn Refiners Association of America to blast this promotion out of the water as yet another battle for big agri-business to maintain their stranglehold on farm subsidies and the American Waistline.
