Fun Giveaway: Pepsi Throwback Prize Package

pepsi-throwback-giveaway

Have you checked out the new Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwbacks? No, well then let me tell you that Pepsi is taking us back to the olden times when soda was made using natural sugar. It has been a while since soda is made using natural sugar here in the United States. Not in my home country though, sugar still reings supreme there. Which is why the throwback was just what I needed to get a taste and good reminder of the good things available back home. If you have not tried Pepsi or Mountain Dew throwback, you may want to act quickly. These products will only be available for eight weeks starting on April 20th.

  1. Pepsi Throwback Trucker Cap

    I love Mt Dew. I think the clear pepsi was cool, I still have a bottle LOL

  • Sun Lutz

    I wish they would bring back “gee your hair smells terrific” shampoo. I use to use it when I was 16, it would bring back such fond memories of my youth, and friends from high school.

  • I would love to see Crystal Clear Pepsi again. That stuff was cool!

  • Alba Guevara

    I like certain shows like the smurfs. lalalallalallalalallal…

  • Linda

    Yeah, the clear pepsi! bring it back!

  • Laura

    I used to wish they would bring back the bright, saturated colors of the 80s, and lo and behold, “citrus brights” are all over the place this spring!

  • Rebecca

    I miss the tan M&M’s. I didn’t know they’d do away with them when they started with blue! Also, I was out of the country for 6 years when Pepsi Clear came out… When I got back my friends were talking about it and I felt so dumb cause I didn’t know there ever was such a thing!

  • I like the preppy look from the 80’s. Modified and toned down a little, but still. πŸ™‚

  • Sarah

    Everyone thus far has read my mind. I too would love to see Pepsi Clear come back. It was really good! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Tonya

    I agree wholeheartedly about the Pepsi Clear!

  • Amtami

    I miss the way people used to talk.. “far out” “groovy” “nifty” “rad”.. and other words that have been replaced. πŸ™‚

  • Jessica C

    What I miss most about my childhood is all the shows that would come on Nickelodeon…I can’t stand the channel much anymore, but back then I loved all the things that came on.

  • Amy

    I like the soda in the bottles — than you took them in to cash in for a refund. The bottles were healthier and it was a neat way for kids to get some pennies!!

  • Huge bellbottoms! They are so cute!!! I remember they did make a mini comeback in the late 90’s, but didn’t stay very long.

    Would love to win this! Thanks for the chance!

  • Rhonda GreenBarron

    Back in the 70’s, McDonalds had a deal where you could get a hamburger, fries, soft drink AND change back from your $1 when you bought these items. In fact, I think that was their advertisement! I was a teenager and loved this deal. Oh, this was before Happy Meals.

    Rhonda

  • I wish they would bring back comedy shows…The Jeffersons, All In The Family, Martin, Good Times, Laverne & Shirley, just to name a few.

  • Betsy Fruncek

    Jarts!

  • Kristi

    I would love to see the small glass bottles back. They were very “green” because we could reuse/recycle them.

  • sarah

    The Carol Burnett Show and The Cosby Show

  • Shelly

    I would love sidewalks as well!!

  • Jackie

    Hypercolor shirts. You know, the ones that change color with your body temperature? I thought those were so cool!

  • Jay

    Kathryn I was thinking the same thing. Smurfs were my favorite as well as Heathcliffe, Care bears, Punky Brewster. All the fun shows, Degrassi High, Wonder Years, Cosby Show….

  • Shelley

    I would like it if more kids played outside and the homemade slip n’ slide was enough to entertain for hours.

  • Chrissy

    I would like to see more puffy painted t-shirts. There just isn’t enough puffy paint in the fashion world these days!

    Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  • Nancy Wendt

    I’d love to see the good ol comedies come back.
    Thanks for the gum ball.

  • I miss the days of penny candy that actually cost a PENNY! I’m not that old, but there were a few small shops in town that had penny candy that I would visit often! I loved it! I miss it! Swedish fish and Sour Patch kids all the way!!!!

  • Carrie

    >>>>That’s another wish. . . . I used to ride my bike all over the county, and it was safe! . . . I wish there were still mom & pop stores with penny (or nickel) candy. I used to love finding pennies on the road and riding my bike to Wilma’s Wonder Shop to buy juju fish and jawbreakers!

    Great giveaway – amfurore at hotmail dot come

    Angie

  • stacie

    What about the Clear pepsi or in the 80’s and aqua net hair spray!
    For a time there was a candy called cherry chalk. That was so good.

    Great Give Away!!

    Stacie

  • Jenny

    totally bell bottoms

  • stacie
  • Diane

    Clear pepsi and yeah where did the tan m & ms go?? And good cartoons. I am not impressed with ones now. School House rock was always cool to watch. Remember the after school specials? Saturdays were always the best day of the week due to the cartoons!

  • I miss some of the older cereals! Like Strawberry shortcake. And I miss getting cool toys in the cereal…now you mail in for everything! LOL…ok, so I’m still a kid at heart!

  • Toni

    There are way too many GREAT things of yesteryear. How about some old fashioned soda shops? And what about milk machines? I do not drink it but it is a clear memory of going to get milk for Mom when the milkman did not deliver. Just so many things that seemed to be so uncomplicated that gave pleasure. I have a 23 year old and if he saw this he would be rolling his eyes ;)I could honestly fill this up with comments on things to bring back and things that definitely need to be trashed or recycled (hey gotta think environmentally friendly!) thanks for allowing me to share. Love and blessings to all πŸ™‚

  • Barbara Gierzak

    Don’t laugh, but I would love to see disco make a comeback! I was a Disco Queen, way back when! I also miss some of the ways we dressed then, both at work and at play!

  • Laurie

    I wish good manners would make a come-back! On the road, at the store, and in the neighborhood. And (on a quirky note)I kinda miss bananna clips (from the early 90’s). πŸ™‚

  • Heather

  • Ok, I wish they would bring back Avocado Green Shag Carpeting.
    Oh wait…..that alreay came back.lolol
    How about bringing back the cost of my first car….a ’77 Ford Mustang for $3,000.

  • Trisha

    This is a cool prize pack. I would like to see Sun In spray comeback, you know the stuff that bleached your hair?

  • Monica B.

    Does anyone remember the TV show “V.” It featured the aliens who looked like normal people, but they could rip off their skin masks and they looked like giant lizards underneath? That was a great show!

  • Darcie

    I miss soda coming in glass bottles and clear Pepsi. Why did they ever do away with those things?

  • crystal

    Pepsi clear – It was clearly great when it came out – some of us were clearly sad when it went away – clearly it would be great to come back again

  • I wish they’d bring back the fashions from the 60s. I love good ole tie-dye and bellbottoms!

  • mcypert

    I miss the days when after school you would go to the local drug store for after school soft drinks and the people who had cars would drag the main steet of town from one drive in to another for soft drinks and food—–

  • Lela

    As a kid I would get one Pepsi a week on Saturday morning (my kids don’t believe me when I tell them that!) and it was in a glass bottle. We had an old metal ice cube tray that had a pull-up handle that broke the ice into small slivers like crushed iced and I would pour my long-awaited Pepsi over that perfect ice and watch the Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner show until my best friend would show up on her bicycle. What a fun giveaway to bring back that memory!

  • I stumbled it but I’m not sure if it went through. The site is having some issues. I’ll check later and resubmit if it’s not showing up. My username is ncmountainmama.

  • Abby

    I’d like to see beehive hairdos come back in fashion. They were so much fun!

  • Maya Andrews

    Milk and juice home delivery
    I’m only 30, but I think it is neat that we had a milkman when I was growing up. I love the glass bottles!

  • The real enchirito from taco bell…the french fries with trans fat (I think we should be able to make the choice for ourselves)…morals…manners…

  • Alli

    Got to go with Bell Bottoms!

  • I wish some of the good family comedies of the 80’s would make a comeback – like Full House.

  • Would love the 80’s music, style, everything to be back πŸ™‚

  • tweeted on twitter:

    @faith4eternity

    Thanks for the chance to win this!

  • Misty

    Oh there are so many but I wish that those video shows that were on Friday and Saturday nights would make a comeback. It’s rare that you can put on a music channel and actually find music playing. I also liked my 80’s hair. It was fun to see who could get the biggest do with our ten gallon spray of Aqua Net.

  • Chrissy

    I wish perms would come back into fashion. I would never get one now, but if everybody was doing it……!

  • Amy

    I wish they would bring back Black Jack Gum.
    It was a gum that tasted like licorice!! It brings back such funny memories from my teenage days!!

  • Tiffany Fortney

    I wish the Smurfs would still be on tv.

  • maria

  • Rachael

    I think crimped hair deserves a second chance!

  • Diana

    Some of the good old TV shows- like the Waltons and Cosby!

  • Mary

    I wish the old shows like Gilligans Island, Brady Bunch, and Partridge Family were back and I’d love for Drive In’s to come back- the kind you cruised through and ate at.

  • I wish they would go the extra mile on the throwbacks and put them back in glass bottles. Nothing tastes better than an ice cold Pepsi in a glass bottle!

  • Linda Gauer

    I really liked a drink called Chelsea. It was late 70s or early 80s. similar to ginger ale. It disappeared. I found it had about 1/4 % alcohol, so I suppose having for sale in the soft drink aisle wasn’t the greatest thing, but I really liked it.

  • Kelly Preston

    I would like to bring back more pop in bottles not cans. Somehow it seems to taste better in a bottle. Even machines should offer bottles not cans.

  • Tom Preston

    The old car styles that you knew would be classics!!

    kellyscrapin@yahoo.com

  • Marsha Jones

    Wonka used to make the most wonderful peanut butter filled candies called Oompas. I’ve tried peanut butter M&M’s, but they’re not quite the same. I wish they’d start production on these again.

  • Kristine

    I wish that businesses were closed on Sunday’s, neighbors were nice, chivalry and common courtesy existed. I’m sure all of this isn’t completely extinct but it would be nice if it became the standard again.

    Check out my facebook, it’s my status πŸ™‚

  • K. C.

    The Flintstones. . .they were the best!

    Wow what wouldn’t I like to come back! Jellie shoes for adults (that are comfortable), chicken little sandwiches from KFC. And for Pepsi, how about clear and lemon flavored come back! Or chocolate covered cherry in regular!

  • aunttammie

    Captain Kangaroo! Mr. Green Jeans! Bunny Rabbit! Mr. Moose! Grandfather Clock! The inevitability of falling ping-pong balls! Mr. Drawing Board!

  • candy that cost a PENNY a piece. my kids think i’m nuts that me and my husband were privledged to this(we just 33 and 34 so it wasn’t too long ago)

  • rachna

    old is gold……….. love the pepsi giveaway.

  • rachna

    those were the times. life was simple, with simple pleasures to enjoy.

  • Cjsime

    Can I list something that shouldn’t be brought back instead? Jelly Shoes. Every year. Why?!

    How about the old Batman shows when the action sceens only contained action words like POW BAM

  • Deanne Street

    I really wish the Mason’s rootbeer would make it’s way back and of course the 8 tracks!

  • Kathy

    I love the throwback look!

  • A.J.

    Pop rocks; drinking water from a garden hose without worrying about getting cancer; riding in station wagons with all the windows rolled down; bottomless cups of coffee for only a quarter; the original Mickey D’s fries; bicycles with banana seats

  • How about the dollar movie theaters that only cost a dollar?

  • jenny Miller

    OOH- Dollar movies= good choice Mary-

  • Linda Duty

    I wish they would bring back the days when everyone was nice and respectful of each other. The crime rate was low. And I liked they perms in the 80’s. My hair looked great.

  • gina

    farrah fawcett hair!!! those were the good old days!! 1 can of aqua net a week, thank you!! thanks for all your advice and great give-a-ways!!

  • Ryan

    I wish I could get a pair of Kangaroo running shoes with the little pouch on the side and some tube socks with colored strips that go up to my knees. That was the best. I also wish 7-11 would still let you stack your own nacho chips in the tray. I looked pretty cool walking down the street with my socks,Kangaroos, nachos and a Mtn. Dew the size of my head and cheese all over my face and Pac-Man shirt.

  • Poofy bangs teased high with Aqua Net. And the Cosby Show.

  • Bring back the BIG 80’s hair!

  • I really wish fraggle rock would come back… my favorite cartoon!

  • Tim

    I think Surge should make a comeback. I realize this kind of counters mountain dew, but i think it would be awesome.

  • Christy

    I know they still exist, but I can’t find them regularly -Bugles snacks. I remember eating those regularly in the late 70’s.

  • I miss the rock candy.. remember the candy that was all different colors and shapes and was like a jellybean? I also miss the blackjack gum.. My grandma use to give that to us when we came to visit and I don’t see it very often except in specialty shops anymore.. Makes me miss my grandma..

  • I just thought of something else.. I miss good music.. you know where they actually had talent and played in an actual band.. none of that digitally enhanced stuff ACTUAL talent. Don’t see that hardly at all anymore.

  • Mara

    Luv it jeans…6th grade was never soooo cool!

  • Diane

  • Jacqueline in Atlanta

    I would like to see layered cuts and curly, big hair come back. To some extent it has. Sorry, but the straight hair look just does not look good on most people. Some pull it off, but I think most gals look better with a little more umph to their style than straight hair hanging down beside their face.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  • Alan Brown

    I would like to see Dominoes pizza bring back the Noid. Avoid the Noid. If your pizza doesn’t arrive in 30 minutes, it’s free.

  • michelle rosborough

    I miss my big afro

  • ann

    id like to see side pony tails come back, kind of, just not so… extreme. plus, they are pretty easy to sleep in as well!

  • ann

    oh, i also stumbled the giveaway (user name = a1nn). thanks for the great giveaway. i tried the pepsi throwback tonight and i love the taste. i’m not a huge cola fan, but the throwback tastes a bit more mild and clean- it’s great!

  • Shawn

    I miss the good ol’ cartoons that use to come on Saturday mornings. I remember waiting all week for Saturday to come. When it finally arrived we would get up early in the morning before our parents & turn the volume down really low on the TV. It was great. Now days it seem like everytime I turn on the TV there is some sort of cartoons on.

  • I don’t really wish the trends would come back, but I miss the way things used to be even when I was a kid before they removed prayer from schools and God couldn’t be mentioned in so many places. No offense to anyone meant at all, but I feel like the more this has happened the worse off things have gotten for this country. On a lighter note, I do wish I could find my beloved orange bubble gum again! I can’t remember if it was Hubba Bubba (I think!) or something else but I’ve been searching for it for YEARS. Really. I’m that pathetic. πŸ˜‰

    I have noticed some things are already coming back in the stores: hippy type blouses with the puffy sleeves. Should have saved my old clothes. But I would also like the Farrah Fawcett hairstyle to come back.

    I would love for them to bring back the six pack glass bottles.
    They were so good with a pack of peanuts in them.

  • This stuff is great…it tastes like I remember Pepsi tasting.

    I want Saturday morning cartoons back. I know that they probably wouldn’t pass today’s standards with Wyle E Coyote getting blown up all the time, but they were way better than a lot of the junk that is on today. Thank goodness for DVR which allows us to choose our own Saturday morning cartoons.

  • I always loved Sugar Babies, and I can’t find them much anymore! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I miss Crystal Pepsi! That stuff was the greatest and then they got rid of it!

  • Lana

    At our house we wish for Hydrox cookies. We saw an ad recently saying they were coming back but we could not locate them at the store. Wonder what happened?????

  • Even though I’m a reality show addict, I’d love to see more family sitcoms. Something like Family Ties, or The Cosby Show where you didn’t have to worry about your kids watching it.

  • April

    I think they should bring back black and white tv shows. They were the best. My favorite is definately I Love Lucy. I do love the pepsi throwback. My whole family are huge pepsi fans. April tigge200@aol.com

    I wore my ponytail on the side while I was growing up. I wish those would come back.

  • CB Boouch

    I would like to see drive-in movies come back. In my younger days this was the greatest way to go to the movies with the really big screens and all the comforts of home. Dress in comfort as well as bring all the treats you want.

  • Erin

    I want Pop Rocks and Little Caesar’s square pizza to come back.

  • Laurie

    I used to think the tv show “land of the lost” was so cool as a little girl, I wish they would bring it back so my little girl could see it πŸ™‚

  • fran

    I’ve seen the tv commercial the other day. Whatever happened to “penny candy”?:) This is a great prize. Thanks.

  • I definitely wish that Cindy Lopper would make a comeback- the way it should be with “She-Bop” and “Girls just wanna have fun”…boy do I miss those days; oh and Goonies, dark crystal and Sixteen candles would air more often. Those were the good ole’ days!!!!

  • Terri L

    I miss the 16 oz glass bottles of soda. It tasted so good!

  • DanielleCorrelle

    It would be an awesome trip down memory lane to see the clear pepsi come out again. I thought that was so cool when I was a kid.

    I was also thinking the other day I wish that old-school cartoons would start coming on more often. Now that my kids are starting to be interested in cartoons more especially. I wanted to watch The Muppet Babies, hahaha.

    I really miss Fraggle Rock and Razzles!!! Bring back the goods πŸ™‚

  • Oh this is a FUN giveaway!
    I’m not sure if ANYONE is gonna remember this FUN Food from the ’60’s it was Kelloggs Danish Go Rounds! YUM! They were a Breakfast “Pastry” that you popped into the toaster and they were so Delish! Better than a Pop tart and POOF Gone. Just like Jello 1-2-3 and Team Flakes Cereal..
    OMG.. so funny!
    Memories!

    I miss the days when we kids played outside, using our imaginations and riding our bikes everywhere!! We would get our sodas from a machine that had the little bottle opener on the front of it – sodas in glass bottles – so good!! We only had three channels on the tv so watching was a real treat. Little House on the Prairie was my favorite show – and everyone talked about the episode the next day at school!

    I loved the diet mountain dew code red in diet…they quit making them!

  • betty steward

    I’d personally love to see good manners come back in style, oh, and curfews! Okay, I guess I would love to have Pepsi in the glass bottle lke it came in when I was a kid, and could buy one if I was lucky enough to have a nickel.

  • You might laugh, but I LOVED the Crysal Pepsi campaign! Bring it back!! Thanks!

  • I agree! I thought Crystal Clear Pepsi was awesome when I was in 3rd grade.

  • Punky Brewster of course! πŸ™‚ I’m not sure if it would have the same effect on me now… and Punky is all grown up but I sure loved that show as a kid… I wanted nothing more then to be Punky.. even begged until my mother bought me a dog that looked like Brandon.. which of course I named Brandon πŸ™‚

  • Gina Hindman

    I loved 3’s company. Wish they could bring that back!

    Canning from your own garden

  • Cheryl in AL

    It is kind of scary. It seems that things from when I was in Jr High are coming back now. Metallic shoes, neon colors. Maybe the prairie skirts with petticoats will be next. (ha ha)

  • 80’s BIG HAIR!!! Ok, not really, but it was fun while it lasted!

  • Julie

    I’d like to see the Marathon candy bars return.

  • Kren

    I want to see the return of CBGBs in NYC. Sigh.

    Everything old is new again.

  • I would love the pepsi bottles to be glass again. I also would love a chance to see a penny candy shop that people always talk about.

  • Bellbottoms…I just think they are cool…and more people look good in them than in skinny jeans!!

  • I loved the pop in the glass bottles. There was nothing tastier than a really cold glass bottled pop

  • Renee S.

    I liked Ditto pants.

    I wish we could still wear leisure suits! LOL! Looking back on it, they were so lame. Why did we ever wear those things?

  • Pam B.

    I would love to have those little chocolate drinks called “Brownies” back, or the little malted milk ice cream containers. They were so yummy!

  • Martha M.

    I wish prices would still be low, like 10 cent bread, 39 cent bacon, 29 cent eggs, 7 cent baby food, 39 cent gasoline, etc. Of course, we didn’t make that much either. But you could purchase a house for $15,000 and you could still stay at home with your children and make a decent living with one income. I suppose I’m quite a bit older than most of you. But we didn’t have to worry about crime the way it is now and we saw our families on a regular basis. Things were not rushed the way they are now.

  • Kim

    It would be neat to get into the Saturday double matinee for only a quarter, like when I was a child. Nowadays I can’t afford (or refuse to pay the price) to go to the movies. I just wait until I can rent them on DVD.

  • Trey B.

    I’ve seen a lot of comebacks of toys I played with as a child, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Star Wars. I’m sure my mom and dad didn’t pay that much for them though. I do like a lot of modern stuff, I’ll admit, but I miss some of the old things, like some type of gum I used to love, can’t remember it’s name, but it was really good.

  • Frank Jr.

    Huckleberry Hound, Tarzan and the old Superman.

  • Ysenia Ramirez

    I wish they would bring back this perfume I loved when I was a teen it was cheap but smelled so good. La fluer.

  • Crystal

    I miss the Crystal Pepsi…but am a die hard Mt. Dew drinker!

  • Brooke

    loved the clear pepsi. As long as we don’t bring back the spandex pants were good. lol

  • Karin

    Breakfast squares, Sara Lee ice cream (so good!) Cass Clay frozen yogurt, figurines!—

    Planter’s Cheese Balls. They were so yum and my great-grandmother always had a can of them.

  • Sarah

    It just got done away with but… they should bring back the Volcano Taco at Taco Bell. My boyfriend is missing it very much.

  • Pilar

    How about leggings with white or black Reebooks? LOL I really miss the old cartoons! πŸ™‚

  • Pilar

    I twittered about the giveaway!

  • I would love to be able to find the sodas they used to sell in glass bottles. About ten years ago they brought it back and the soda just tasted so much better than the ones in the plastic bottles.
    Thanks for hosting this contest.

  • Michelle

    I wish the candy was one cent, jobs and the economy was better!

  • Nicole

    I wish our kids could ride their bikes to the center of town, unsupervised, with $1 for the bunch of them and get a whole bag full of snacks like my friends and I did as kids! We also went to a soda(?) place that would fill the glass bottles with different flavored soda by the case. We would go back with the bottles and they would wash them and refill them again. I miss the glass bottles. It seemed to taste better that way. I also wish we had the old 45’s back. There was nothing like the scratchy sound of a 45 with a cold bottle of soda on a hot, summer afternoon.

  • melanie

    Bring back the tan M&Ms! Blue is an unnatural color for something to eat!

  • melanie

    Yeah, I miss big hair too! Not ginormous, mind you, but I think most people look better with a little hair volume going on.

  • melanie

    …and how about ubicpay airhay? Suddenly it’s unfashionable to have any. Just one more thing to have to feel inferior about!

  • Samntha

    I wish women having a little fat on their bodies would come back in style. I am just talking about the return of the “healthy” body image over the super thin, unhealthy no body fat at all image that is popular now.

  • WENDY

    WOULD LIKE TO SEE A COMEBACK FOR CHEAPER TAXES AND INSURANCE.

  • Courtney

    What about the great cars back then? I am a big fan of AMC AMX (muscle car made in WI)That is what I would want back. The cars now are so run of the mill.

  • sarah

    Pepsi always beats Coke for me!

  • Sue D

    How about penny candy!
