I was excited this came back too, but not as excited as when I saw "Heritage Dr. Pepper" with real sugar in Target today. I hope that this trend continues and we get more of the sodas with real sugar. It's great!
If nothing else, we're getting Pepsi Lime and Diet Pepsi Lime. Just saw them for the first time in a long time (or possibly ever? I can't really remember) yesterday. Didn't try the regular one but the diet version was good.
Loved Pepsi Throwback the first time; love it just as much the second time. I kinda liked the old-school packaging of the first go-round, though: the 2009-10 winter season packaging is just kinda generic "early '80s logo". Big deal.
The Mountain Dew Throwback packaging, on the other hand, is a hoot!

Didn't the kid in Books of Magic have an owl as well? I haven't looked at my copies of the original mini-series in years, but yes, a number of similarities to HP are popping into my head. Not really actionable ones--just details.
