Throwback Designs in Products We Use

Recommended Posts

Miller Lite just brought back a throwback can:

Pepsi and Mountain Dew (both PepsiCo. products) did the same in 2009:

Coors did throwback cans a few years ago:

Any other instances of retro products? I think PepsiCo. made a mistake by putting THROWBACK on the front of it. They should have just let the original design speak for itself.

i hated when Pepsi put that atrocious yellow banner on their throwback can. it's not even worth doing if that's the direction you're going to take

i dont understand the hatred for the pepsi can, the yellow banner was added to show that it wasn't the regular pepsi but, throwback pepsi with real sugar, its not like miller and coors selling the same product just changing the can

General Mills rolled these out this fall...I think only at Target.

Frute Brute? The hell?

Cherry-flavored cereal. It kinda tastes like the berries in Berry Berry Kix, but also kinda tastes like Chap Stick. Easily the worst of the five. Fruity Yummy Mummy, however, is freaking delicious.

They brought back Fruit Brute and Mummy this year. Unfortunately, all of these are only seasonal items. I still have four boxes from when I stocked up this fall :D

Miller did this a couple years ago with a series of retro High Life bottles:

Kids ate all of the Frute Brute before I got to it, but I thought Yummy Mummy was awful... like orange creamsicle in cereal form. I like orange creamsicles, but not in my cereal.

I want to say Hershey's did the same a few years ago. Seems like I remember seeing some vintage hershey's packaging at walmart.

I think General Mills and Kellogs have both done retro packaging for their cereals in the recent past. I really dug them.

Still going. Bought a bag to take to a NYE gathering.

And the Pepsi yellow banner was used back in the day. I can't remember what it said, but it was used for a while.

It said 'Take the Pepsi Challenge' during that campaign...

I wish these would've went full-time instead of the taco flavor.

Yes. God, yes. Jumpin' Jack is the only flavor I've ever bought OVER Nacho Cheesier. DeLISH.
