Precious Moments: Pepsi




Cashier: How is that Pepsi throwback?
Customer: What? Oh, the one with real sugar? It's not bad.
Cashier: I haven't tried it. I tried the Mountain Dew throwback.
Customer: Oh, yeah? I haven't tried that one. Any good?
Cashier: It was kind of weird. It tasted pretty good but it kind of freaked me out. I could definitely taste a difference.
Customer: Huh, I'll have to try that one another time.
Cashier: [finished scanning items] Would you like to... [awkward pause] donate a dollar to the diabetes fund?
Customer: uh... sure, why not?
Me: [Smiling]

  2. the irony. I like pepsi throwback and think the sugar is probably better for you than the HFCS.

  7. Never heard of "throwback" soda. I hope it didn't have backwash in it.

  8. Bahaha! The throwback mountain dew is totally nasty diabetes in a bottle, I have an opened bottle in the fridge (only one drink is missing) because I can't get over the hillbilly artwork. not cool, being a West Virginian and all!

  9. Subtle yet right on target...and funny too, but not in a syrupy sweet kind of way.

  10. 1. Mountain Dew is gross.

    2. It should be noted that the local slang for diabetes here is "the sugar" and it is so pervasive that instead of diabetes listed on health forms or radio ads for like clinical trials and such they will just list "sugar"....it kinda kills me.

  11. Wilfred Brimley got his diabetes from having sex with a dirty pepsi can.

  12. Seriously, is this a joke? I have never heard of throwback. I definately don't like Mountain Dew and Pepsi just has that sugar eatting at your teeth taste. I am a coke person. Real sugar! Go have a peach.

  13. And here I thought the throwbacks were just the cans, sorta like uniforms.. I gotta get me some of that action now if it has some sweet, sweet sugar in it

  14. Alaina, that sugar eating your teeth taste is the HFCS. The throwback was really clean tasting with no aftertaste.
