Pepsi to Use Real Sugar in 'Pepsi Throwback' and 'Mountain Dew Throwback' in April

Our local Publix tells me that Pepsi Throwback will soon be off the shelves, being only a summer item. Is that true?

My Week Without Corn, Part II: The No Corn-Fed Animal Products Edition

Grass fed pigs not a bad idea. In fact, some of the best pigs are raised eating grass, roots, acorns and roots. Ham from these pigs is delicious: one can taste the acorn. Did not eat the sausage from these pigs, but it exists.
If some meat guys don't know what I am talking about, Google Jamón ibérico, Iberian ham, also called pata negra. Or, simply Google Spanish Black Pig.
It is so good, someone stole, took, the 50 Euro black ham, (authorized and sealed for international travel), from me when returning from Spain.

My Week Without Corn, Part II: The No Corn-Fed Animal Products Edition

Is there such a thing as ice cream which has the milk component from grass fed cows?

And, I would like to know why yogurt using fruit juice stopped being provided in America, (or, at least this part of America…the “Paradise” of Naples, Florida.)

While you are at it, explain to me why one cannot get an Apple Pie made with just apples: no sugar, no sweetener. I did it Thanksgiving 1982. Some tell me it is not a “pie” without sugar. Well, what did I make then? I think I used an Apple pie recipe, used red delicious apples, and just did not put in the sugar. I put in the cinnamon, and whatever else was called for. It was good!

I am presuming that fruit, (and fruit juice), are better than sugar. It goes without saying that the fruit juice in yogurt or ice cream would be 100 percent fruit juice. Also, common sense rules of simply enough fruit juice to give it some sweetness apply.

Indulge me further and give thought to French blueberry tarts, (the kind one gets when in France), using 100 percent fruit juice instead of sugar.

(All of these ideas which utilize fruit juice in combination with some milk product should ideally utilize milk from grass fed cows.)

If such things do not exist, they are progressive and good ideas, I think. Could someone hire me to give good ideas?

Happy Turkey "Pie" or Ala King

In 1983, Oak Park, Illinois, a health restaurant around the corner sold "Happy Turkey Pie". It was delicious, and they provided me with the recipe. There was a saute process with onions, mushrooms, maybe celery. Among spices were Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. The mushroom sauce utilized whole wheat pastry flour, and to the mix was added tofu. This was all cooked together in a huge pan, (I would make enough for one month, freezing three one week batches, because it took so much work to slice things.)
This was all to be put in a whole wheat pie crust. Given that the rolling was something I was poorly trained in, and given that I felt the crust, while good, was not so healthy, I simplified the process and put the happy pie filling over brown rice, (what I term ala king.)
My question is what was that recipe? I cannot find the recipe. I kept it for years, and somewhere along the way it got lost. I have googled and cannot find it.
Someone must have lived in Oak Park in 1983 who ate it, or worked at that little restaurant.
Once found, it is highly recommended!

Help me try and help my 18 year old son and G2

My 18 year old son, a baseball player, (serious and very good), lean, and intelligent, drinks G2, (one of those Gatorade products). He will drink this, (as do many other players), before, during, between games and practice.
I believe that the high fructose corn syrup is not good for him. Personally, the HFCS gives the drink a lousy taste.
Does anyone know of a drink providing energy, hydration, that might be a good substitute?
Mind you, G2 has Vit C, Vit E, Niacin, B6, Pantothenic Acid.
Also, the HFCS imparts a seemingly desirable sweetness, and a little flavor and good calories are desirable.
Gatorade was originally marketed to be a source of electrolyte energy drink, was it not? Perhaps there exists an organic, non HFCS energy drink?

Pepsi Throwback and Sugar Cola

1. I have been told and read that Pepsi Throwback will not be available after summer. Publix manager says it is only a summer product. Is this true?

2. What other "colas" made with sugar, (not too much sugar), exist in "paradise", (Naples, FL), and can be had at a reasonable price?

3. A local Latin grocery did have Pepsi with sugar, produced in Honduras. It was in a 12 oz glass bottle, sold for $1.15. Is there a difference between this and Throwback?
