Taste the Past - Pepsi Throwback Giveaway

-- This giveaway is now closed --

Have you heard that Pepsi is offering a taste of the past? For 8 weeks only, starting April 20th, Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback will be available nationwide. These products, inspired by the 60's and 70's, are sweetened with natural sugar (instead of the usual high fructose corn syrup) and come in 20-oz retro designed single-serve bottles and 12-pack cans. I really love the look of those Pepsi cans! Look for them in your local store.

Now, for the exciting part: One lucky reader will win this Pepsi Throwback Pack!




The pack is valued at $150 and includes:
  • Pepsi Throwback Trucker Cap
  • Retro Pepsi Tin Lunch Box
  • Retro Clock Radio/CD Player
  • USB Lava Lamp
  • Pepsi Throwback & Mountain Dew Throwback



I just had to use that background! Far Out, isn't it? You can learn all about Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback, as well as get some great blog and twitter backgrounds, computer desktops, and even learn some 70's slang at the Throwback Hub.

  6. I didn't have a lunch box, I brown bagged it. So my favorite song probably "Aquarius" which they played to skaters on ice. Beautiful show. Also the Jesus Christ Superstar musical the songs always remind me of the play.

  10. My favorite lunchbox (I got a new one every year) was my Wuzzles lunchbox! Super awesome cartoon, and it had the best thermos, the cartoons wrapper all the way around and the pictures told a little story! You knew the afternoon would go well when your lunch had a twix in it!! Yum!

  11. I always got Bologna in my lunch box not sure if I spelled it right. Those were good sandwhiches. I loved the beach Boys songs playing in the house. Surfing was our favorite. We lived by the beach growing up and roller skates was the big thing and Bee Gee's!!! As a kid I browned bag it!

  53. I had many favorites, like my mickey mouse school bus and partridge family. But my favorite is still my 'welcome back, kotter' one. I still have it and the partridge family one. My kids had cool star wars ones. Of course, as I hit middle school these were replaced by the ever more cool paper bag. :(

    ReplyDelete
  54. Okay, I found the Throwback Pepsi yesterday and bought 15 12pks. I really like the taste. Will buy more before its gone.

  55. my lunch box has gizmo on it in a pink car and a song that brings back memories is My Girl since my sister and I always would sing it together growing up.

  56. I wasn't allowed to take my lunch to school. My mom wouldn't let me. I know, right?

    But if I could have had a little lunch box, and believe me I dreamed about it all the time, it would have been snoopy.

    I would have taken tuna sandwiches and ham sandwiches with fruit and celery. I would have alawys tried to take something sweet, too. Maybe even lots of sweets. Maybe that is why I could not take a lunch box. My mom always said she wanted me to eat a hot lunch. She didn't have to eat school lunches, that's why!

    LOOK at this:
    http://ifyoucouldseewhatisee.blogspot.com/2009/05/catch-that-pepsi-feeling.html

    Seriously... look at it.

    It doesn't have the odd aftertaste Pepsi with HFCS has. Hooray for Throwback! I wish they would keep it out forever.

  59. My lunchbox was sadly plastic and had the Muppet Babies on it. My friend had a Knight Rider lunchbox that was so very awesome. My mom would freeze 7up in a tiny cup with a top, so I'd have slightly-melted 7up slushy for lunch. Unfortunately, I'd also wind up with a soggy sandwich coz of it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I had a pink,plastic Strawberry shortcake lunchbox and I always had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a chocolate milk, and a fruit roll up. Maybe some cookies if I was good the night before!

  70. I never got the chance to carry a lunch box because I went to a Catholic Private school and was at the mercy of the Nuns who did all of the cooking :) My favorite music was from the Bee Gees and favorite song of all time was a one hit wonder from Soft Cell- Tainted Love

  77. Yes, I have tried the Pepsi and Mt. Dew Throwback! They are awesome! I can't believe I can remember the taste from so many years ago. But as soon as the stuff touched my tongue I instantly remembered. OK, I need a life :-)

  78. My first lunchbox was Hong Kong Phooey. I loved it until the plastic handle broke. Then I got a Peanuts lunch box, and had it until it was no longer "cool" to carry one.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I brownbagged it with sandwiches on Wonder bread.

    I remember when "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" came out, and I used to sing it at the top of my lungs with my aunt who was only a year older than me.
