Maybe I need to re-read the "tips for getting your submission green-lit" because garbled syntax is not something I had thought of.  Subby knows what's up.

I usually drink coke, but because of availablity I something drink peosi, recently they have been doing retro cans. I know it's completely mental on my part, but pepsi tastes better in a white can with the orginal logo. I know it doesn't actually taste better, but the nostalgia it provides me convinces me it does. To the extent that when I do get a blue can, I usually don't finish it.

/now if they'd bring the old wild cherry can, I'd be set for type II
//and both of the 90s cherry coke cans too.

Well, if the formula is "retro" also, that's why it tastes different. For example, the Mountain Dew in the can/bottle with the old hillbilly on it is actually the old formula made with real sugar and not that high fructose corn syrup shiat. SO your Pepsi might taste better because they were actually making it retro...

No. Those are Mountain Dew and Pepsi Throwback. This is just regular pepsi being released in a series of retro cans, probably to go with their super bowl commercial where they flashed back over all the pop culture refferences pepsi has been associated with. That's why Michael Jackson is on the white early ninties can and Britney Spears is on the late 90s/00s blue can.

/the commercial made me realize how much of a history they threw out by changing their logo, I jad somewhat hoped someone at the company noticed too.
//I hate the new logo.

"Pepsi Throwback" used to be the white cans coontil 2014/15).  Now the white cans are HFCS Pepsi, and "Pepsi made with real sugar" is in blue cans.

Pepsi, number 1 capitalist soda in Soviet Union. Traded at the border to Stolichinya vodak until 1989, when they instead traded for a fleet of warships.

Subby, is this a reference to "Lo Fi music to chill and study to hip hop beats?"
