Do I hear the Magnum P.I. soundtrack?

The 80’s. Sugared sodas. Now replaced high fructose corn syrup and all sorts of other nasty. Pepsi is bringing sexy (and healthier back).

Granted, drinking sugared sodas isn’t a healthy endeavor. But if you already partake during your coding stints (and don’t resort to energy drinks outright), I have some great news for you.

Pepsi is brining Mountain Dew and Pepsi properly back in the form of original recipe throwbacks. I was never a huge Dew-drinker, but I remember Pepsi and Dew being slightly crisp with a really nice after-taste. And they packed enough to pique my interest and keep me coding Cobol, Pascal, Gra-forth, and Assembly.

Recently my wife and I took a quick drive to Cape Cod to check out a few summer rental homes. We stopped at a Dunkin’ Donuts for some coffee and next door was a convenience store. My wife came back with a few throwbacks – mainly because the retro labels were pretty sweet. I was immediately thrown into a gastric time machine.

Pepsi has decided to keep these “limited edition” sodas around for good. I guess it was originally a temporary thing. I wonder if they will end up selling more of the throwback than their current modern offerings.

I plan on picking some up. Just for the nostalgia. Now to watch a little Magnum P.I. on Hulu or something. Woohoo!
