Default Mountain Dew

Been seeing the TV commericals that Mountain Dew Livewire will be out this summer. This is orange favored version.

While I tend to go for the regular Mountain Dew, the others versions are okay, my co-workers who drink it tend to go for Mountain Dew - Code Red.

******
This is a bummer, I can't add a poll after I post it.

******
Looks like you can after all.

Diet Dew does it for me. Back last year when they were promoting MD Code Red, they even had Diet Code Red - now that, I really liked! I haven't seen it since, though.

I haven't checked the Mountain Dew web site for about a year now but according to it they also offer a Caffeine Free version of Mountain Dew but it seems that it is not sold in Hawaii. And even before that someone who used to be from Hawaii but lived in Canada at the time said that they have it there.

Man...............What a thread.......
I use to drink this stuff all the time (long time ago) ,24 oz. at a time,
untill it started to make my teeth ache!.
In fact, it triggered a tooth ache so much,
that I had to have a root canal & a gold tooth cover for it.
I think it was all that sugar contents that was in it.
So I stoped drinking the darn thing,
Sorry gang. un fortunately,
I think I have neglected to mention that to my best friend,
& she gave me a one litter bottle when she visited me last,
& I think it took me a month & a half or so to finish it.
Thank goodness it's gone.

(I'm not in a habbit of waisting someone's offer/gift given to me.)

Aloha & Take care.

I like the original one. But I don't drink as much, because I can detect when something has too much sugar. And since when they have a "diet" Mountain Dew?

I was surprised to learn on TV that Mountain Dew actually contains a splash of orange juice. You can taste it if you're looking for it.

I don't think I have ever tasted Mountain Dew in any version, but I do use their bottles to disguise beer when I'm drinking it in places I shouldn't be.

Mountain dew also contains brominated vegetable oil. That's an odd ingredient in a soft drink...

True but what gets me is what is listed as other natural flavors after the orange juice. There is more of that than the brominated vegetable oil.

I don't drink sodas regularly, but often enough to not keep what I REALLY like in the house. I drank Vanilla diet coke, being of the Coke generation, till I tried Vanilla Diet Pepsi when my coke wasn't available, and wow, I like the vanilla diet pepsi better. Seems the vanilla flavor is stronger with the Pepsi version, but I don't like plain Pepsi better than plain Coke. When running errands, and I want a caffeine pickerupper (g) it's nice to have a taste that I enjoy, quickly available.

Managed to drink a bottle of Mountain Dew today that was expired two weeks ago. It was okay unlike the time a friend who gave me a can of Diet Coke that the freshness date expired 6 months before.

Default Re: Doing the Dew

back in the 70's in Idaho, "Doing the Dew" meant taking a piss so I cannot imagine why one would want to associate their soft drink with urine. Hmmm it kinda does look like piss and drinking enough of Mountain Dew (Deer Piss) can make you want to urinate.

"Doing the Dew" probably came from the Texas term, "Shakin the dew off the lilly" which basically meant the same as taking a piss.

Then there's Coors beer made with Rocky Mountain Water. That phrase later evolved into Rocky Mountain Piss Water. So you got Mountain Piss water and you got Mountain Dew (water) (piss) So Doing the Dew to me makes as much sense of pissing than anything else.

So go ahead, Do the Dew either way you'll be pissing it out anyway.

Ever look at the label on bottled water? It too has a freshness date. Hmmm since when does water spoil?

Default Mountain Dew - Pitch Black

While getting my bus pass from Foodland on Monday I noticed that they are selling a new version of Mountain Dew called Pitch Black (or was that Pitched Black). I didn't buy it but the front label says it is grape flavor.

Default Re: Mountain Dew - Pitch Black

Apparently "Pitch Black" will only be available for 10 weeks, ending with Halloween (with promotions that tie the color to the spooky holiday). Check out the official site.

From BevNet:
Quote:
Mountain Dew Pitch Black combines the great taste of Mountain Dew with a blast of black grape flavor. It follows in the footsteps of Mountain Dew LiveWire, which grew the Mountain Dew trademark more than 10% during its inaugural six-month run in 2003. Building on that successful strategy, Mountain Dew Pitch Black will capitalize on excitement leading up to Halloween with a shorter, 10-week on-shelf stretch beginning August 21. In addition to Mountain Dew Pitch Black's spooky package graphics and in-store displays, a theatre commercial - parodying "B" horror movies - will support the new brand in 4,000 movie theatres. Additional marketing support includes an Internet "Dewsletter" and product sampling at General Growth Properties malls and at this week's ESPN X Games in Los Angeles. Mountain Dew Pitch Black will be available in 20-oz bottles, 2-liter bottles and 12-packs of 12-ounce cans.
Note the line about General Growth Properties malls. That means you might be able to spot sample giveaways at Ala Moana, Ward Center and Prince Kuhio in Hilo.

Pitch Black sounds pretty good. So they've got orange-flavored Mountain Dew (LiveWire), cherry (Code Red), and now grape (Pitch Black). What's next... cola-flavored?

Taco Bell is selling Mountain Dew Baja Blast. It is a lime favored drink. When I got dinner from the Ala Moana Taco Bell, that fountain selection was unavailable.

Had my first Code Red yesterday (my daughter hit the wrong button on the vending machine). It tastes like "sprunch" -- the ever popular Sprite and fruit punch mix. But, well, with caffeine.

Overheard a 7-11 TV commerical saying that Mountain Dew Pitch Black 2 is available. Don't know what's the difference.
