I was at Target this past weekend ogling over lovely packaging when I found Mt Dew and Pepsi throwback! Looks like they are taking a cue from the General Mills retro cereal packaging! I was a hardcore Mt. Dew drinker as a kid and its cool to see the vintage packaging again. For some reason I only thought of taking pictures with my cell phone instead of actually BUYING some…The new ‘throwback’ is supposed to be made with real sugar instead of that corn syrup crap!

Pics I snagged at target:

Not sure why anyone would want this…but apparently Mt Dew code red has chap stick…

And last but not least…there are aparently other ‘perverted’ flavors of mt dew out there (besides the red and orange crap…) who knew! I’m totally a purist when it comes to Mt Dew – original only please!!!
