Pepsi ThrowbackTM available for a limited time in Canada
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 27 /CNW/ - Get out your bell-bottoms and disco 45
records, PepsiCo Beverages Canada is giving consumers a blast from the
past with the introduction of Pepsi Throwback soft drink in stores today for a limited time only!
Featuring iconic retro graphics, Pepsi Throwback will appeal to today's youth who love all things vintage while igniting
feelings of nostalgia in Canadians who fondly remember the 1970s from
"the first time around".
Pepsi Throwback is sweetened with real sugar, and features more vanilla and caramel
notes, giving consumers a unique tasting experience transporting new
and seasoned Pepsi drinkers to one of the most diverse eras of the last century.
"Those of us who lived through it remember the 70s fondly as a time of
great extremes - everything from disco and punk to leisure suits and
torn t-shirts," said Robb Hadley, Director of Enjoyment and
Transformation, PepsiCo Beverages Canada. "And the generations since
the 70s can't seem to get enough of its outrageous contrasts. Whatever
your memories or thoughts of the 70s, one look at Pepsi Throwback takes you there smiling."
Pepsi Throwback soft drink's vintage packaging is based on a replica of a Pepsi can from 1971. The look is cool, classic, strong, simple and
unmistakably vintage. Consumers will find Pepsi Throwback in stores coast-to-coast beginning this week in 355 mL cans, 12-pack
cases and 591 mL bottles. It will be here for a limited time only, so
retro fans will need to pick it up before it's all gone!
