Heritage Dr. Pepper

Here's another limited edition real sugar pop; Heritage Dr. Pepper. The article was from last year, but I have some in a glass right now. (It's actually in a Pepsi glass (did Pizza Hut give those out?) like I had when I was a kid that I got from eBay, but I don't think it minds.) I'm an occasional Pepper, but my friend Jeff is a big fan. I wonder what he thinks about it? Me? I like it better. It's a cleaner flavor than the corn syrup variety, just like the Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwbacks.

Speaking of throwbacks, anyone else seen the Verizon commercial that uses the old Big Red gum TV spot theme and style (yep, that's Peter "Ralphie" Billingsly as the tuba player)? "You'll watch YouTube on a horse, when you use it." Classic. Watch the the vintage Big Red T–shirt in the Verizon ad. And a near up–skirt. Woohoo!

Did you notice that the MD TB formula isn't the same one they had last spring?

Looks like they are trying to find a hybrid between the two taste-wise.

Now that it's been pointed out, i noticed it doesn't smell as citrusy.

No, I didn't. It's been long enough that I couldn't tell. But yeah, now that you mention it, it didn't give me that flashback to the Central Cafe like my first drink of last year's did. And I'm digging the Pepsi Throwback more this time around than the Mt. Dew. Maybe it's because I switched to MD for quite a few years and just got back into Pepsi a few months ago.
