Today we heard some great news for those of you (like us) who enjoyed Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback.

Pepsi confirmed via Facebook and Twitter that the Throwbacks will be returning for a limited 8-week run in December. Specifically, that would place the date range at December 28-February 22.

We’re still pulling together additional confirmation and details, but here is what we know so far:

From Pepsi’s Facebook Page

From Mountain Dew’s Twitter account:

One wonders if the “cooler vintage look”, “sweet new packaging”, and “awesome vintage look” will resemble the fan-favorite prototype bottle designs that were leaked back in February, but later discarded for the Throwback designs that were eventually brought to market.
