#PepsiThrowback Party Toronto By @PepsiCanada & @CasieStewart

Last night at Revival on College in Toronto I attended one heck of a cool event called the #PepsiThrowback Party. The whole theme of the party was the 1980s because Pepsi recently re-released a product called Pepsi Throwback. The party was hosted by the one and only Casie Stewart who I need to give a serious shoutout to for hardcore hooking everyone on the Twitter up to attend this event.

I have mentioned this product before when it was released for a brief 6 week period in February and March. According to literature supplied by Pepsi to its Throwback Party attendees the product was so popular they’ve decided to bring it back again through June and July in Canada.

In case you’re wondering what is up with the 1980s theme it is because the Pepsi Throwback product is made in the same way that Pepsi used to be made up until the 1980s; with more hints of vanilla and caramel and using REAL SUGAR. Yes, that’s right, nowadays they do not use real sugar in Pepsi and most other sodas in Canada & the USA because “high fructose corn syrup” is way cheaper.

When we got into the party we got two drink tickets courtesy of Pepsi which was pretty cool…who doesn’t like free drinks? They also had a very special photobooth with a green screen behind it. I took a picture of some of the attendees having their picture taken in the photobooth and then later I took one of these photobooth pictures with my friend Reggy aka @fragileheart. The result is below after the Pepsi folks did some PhotoShop magic to the picture. When they were done the picture became a Weekend At Bernie’s picture as seen below. Read more…
