Pepsi Throwback

Does anyone know if this is coming to the GTA (and or the similar coke product?). I do not react well to corn syrup, so am interested in these cane sugar based versions of coke and pepsi...just curious if there's any difference in taste with the icky modern product.

    You can check if any stores are still selling Passover Coke, or I think you can get Mexican Coke in Kensington.

    I haven't seen Throwback up here yet.

    The difference is that it's crisper, no slimy aftertaste that corn syrup leaves.

        Pepsi Throwback is not available in Canada. It was sold in the US for a limited time only I believe Pepsi stopped producing it in February 2010. I purchased mine from Wegmans on my last trip to the States. When my stock ran out I found Boylan’s Cola made with cane sugar—it actually works very well for me as a mixer or just straight. Whole Foods sells it for $1.99 a bottle but you can probably find it elsewhere a bit cheaper.
        Others on here have suggested Mexican Coke which can be found in some Latin stores in Kensington market.

          Boylan's Cola is also available at most Longos and Garden Basket locations. I believe it is priced at $1.69.

            Many flavours of Boylan are available at Sobey's for $1.50 a bottle.

            I seen and bought my very first Pepsi Throwback this afternoon.
            Zehrs on Ottawa Street in Kitchener has it in the pop cooler only. From what I seen, they only sell it as single bottles.
