Is all the Pepsi Throwback gone?

This seems a bit silly to worry about, but I was really enjoying the sweet sugary goodness, and I can't find it anywhere locally. Anyone spotted it recently?

  1. The canteen truck outside the Suffolk County House of Correction had a few bottles as of yesterday. Def not destination dining, but if you find yourself arrested grab some after you get bailed out... :)

    Seriously it did.

    1. Try J.Pace in the North End.

      1. There's some in the checkout stand coolers at the North Quincy Stop and Shop on Newport Ave. I just got a bottle, there was definitely some left.

        1. I got some in my local CVS the other day, so it's still around some places!

          1. Is the Pepsi throwback made with pure cane sugar? That is the taste differential in my book. I've been told that Coca Cola distributes product made with pure cane sugar around certain religious holidays. I found a stash in Carmel last summer at a drugstore and bought out the inventory. It was bottled in Mexico.

                There is kosher for passover coke, but I'm coming from nyc so not too sure if that makes the rounds up here.

                  I'm waiting for the Pepsi Thrownoff, which is made from the pure sugar-free cane sugar.

                2. stop and shop in JP has pepsi products on sale 3 cases of 12oz cans for $12. There is some throwback in the pile.


                  1. I just turned up a few 12-pks at my local Stop & Shop in northwestern NJ when it appeared to be gone everywhere. Odd, that. Expiration date is March 2010. :)

                    1. Heads up: Costco in Danvers has cases of Pepsi Throwback in cans AND Mexican Coke in glass bottles, right next to each other, in front of the freezer section.

                      1. Saw a bunch of both the Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwbacks at the Hannaford in Waltham this weekend.

                        1. Got some last night at the Chelsea Market Basket.

                          1. costco Dedham yesterday... on an end of aisle....

                            1. I saw some at the target on the somerville/cambridge line the other day.

                              I'd love to get diet pepsi throwback with saccharine.
