Sugary soda! Woo hoo!

Apparently, Pepsi is releasing two sodas - Pepsi Cola and Mountain Dew - under the "Throwback" label in April. The sodas are flavored with real cane sugar rather than corn based high fructose corn syrup.

Sodas haven't tasted the same since manufacturers went with corn based sweeteners to save costs. I've heard that actual cane sugar is better for you than corn products if you indulge in a soda on occasion. Currently, the only plant in the US I'm aware of that still uses cane sugar is a bottler in my home town of West Jefferson, NC that produces Dr. Pepper. Some sodas are available from Mexico and other countries that still use REAL sugar.
