Hmmm..... Yeah, that's not a good way to start the review is it? So it was poured into a glass of ice like I do for all my reviews, only I was so excited I didn't let it chill first in the fridge. The Mountain Dew Throwback seemed flat, less sweet, and more watered down. The watered down part I may be able to chalk up to the temperature at the time of the pour, but the flatness and the lack of sweetness I can't yet explain.
I'm going to give it another try later. We can hope it goes better. If not, the benefits of sugar over HCFS are going to need be real.
