If you’re wondering where to buy Pepsi Throwback, you’d better act fast! It’s only available for a limited time at the beginning of Winter 2010. Unfortunately, it isn’t available in all locations, but hopefully if you really want to try this flavor, you’ll be able to find it in a store near you!
What Is Pepsi Throwback?
Pepsi Throwback is the regular Pepsi favorite, but it’s made with real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup and comes in a vintage-style can or bottle. Accompanying Pepsi Throwback in its re-release in 2010 is Mountain Dew Throwback–also made with regular sugar–in a can that looks like it’s from decades ago.

Where to Buy Pepsi Throwback

It was available your local grocery stores, convenience stores, and locations like Walmart, Target, Sam’s, K-mart, and anywhere else Pepsi products are sold. If you’re trying to find out where to buy Pepsi Throwback, you can have it narrowed down to which stores carry it as well as which size they have (12 packs of 8 fl. oz. cans or individual 20 fl. oz. bottles, for example). Visit the store locator, choose carbonated drinks, Pepsi, Pepsi Throwback, and then enter your zip code. You’ll get the store name, address, phone number, size of the Pepsi Throwback beverages available, how far they are from the specific zip code you entered, and the option to print your search results. For example, if you live in Atlanta, you’ll see that you can find them at the Super Target at 100 Perimeter Center Place, the Target at 3535 Peachtree Rd NE, and the K-mart at 453 E Main Street in Cartersville. Keep in mind that the store locator may not show all of the stores where you can find Pepsi Throwback in your area, so if there is a store that you frequent, it won’t hurt to have a look there before taking a trip solely for buying the drink.
If you’re interested in having Pepsi Throwback stay around indefinitely and in more stores, you can sign a petition at PetitionSpot.com and state why you think the drink should be available year-round, in all your favorite stores. Of course there is always the option of contacting Pepsi directly, as well.
