The gods of Mountain Dew have thrust upon the general public three new flavors. Fresh off their winning formula of Game “Best Soda Ever” Fuel these new concoctions have a tough legacy to live up with. Do they fail?
Yesterday I went with Che to WalGreens to pick up a few necessities. On the way out the door my eyeball caught a quick glimpse of three new color bottles of Mountain Dew. After beating around the bush we decided on purchasing all three.
The first thing Dew drinkers will notice is these beverages are not highly carbonated. They lack the traditional bite Mountain Dew normally has. These drinks pack the same sugar and caffeine content but are a much lighter and less harsh taste. I believe what they are going for is a beverage people will crave in the mornings that is easer to drink the regular Mountain Dew. When trying the three flavors out I thought they more resembled a low percentage fruit juice then a regular soda.
If you are compelled and feel a strong allegiance to one of the flavors you can head to dewmocracy.com and place your vote for what one of the three favors stays. After trying all three I have to say the Revolution is my favorite mostly because it reminds me of the “Baja Blast”. Check em out while they last.
