Ok I bought this at the beginning of the month on the 8th figured I loved the pepsi throwback so much I would love this since I'm a die hard mountain dew fan....WRONG! I really thought it tasted like flat mountain dew, sad part is I bought 2 12pks and will eventually drink them all but just want to let all the real mountain dew drinker lovers out there know that you probably won't like it if you have only drank the mountain dew with fructose syrup in it. I guess to people that aren't major mountain dew drinkers they may just like it and not be able to tell much difference. I even tried leaving it in the refridgerator to see if it got better after being ice cold and still taste nothing but like flat mountain dew, which don't get me wrong is better than any flat cola but still just wasn't to be exspected from just opening a soda for the first time. I don't think mountain dew did anything good for it this time, they were only supposed to take the high fructose syrup out and put sugar in the place but also taste like they took the carbonation out as well.
