There are several subreddits we follow on the popular Reddit.com. One of them is https://www.reddit.com/r/mountaindew/ which keeps us aware of new Mtn Dew flavors. We’ve said this in almost every soda review, but we aren’t huge soda fans, but Mtn Dew has such a cult following, we love to review the new flavors when they come out.
At first taste, we weren’t sure what this flavor is. It looks wintery, with trees covered in snow, but then it has a giant shark coming out of water in the middle of snowy evergreen trees? We were confused. Although, we must admit, only in Mtn Dew land is it possible to have an ocean shark emerging from water on a snowy tree-covered mountainside. However, none of this gives you a hint of what the flavor actually is.
We thought the flavor might be something wintery or something with bite, like the voltage Mtn Dew with ginseng. However, this BLUE colored Mtn Dew has a light melon flavor to it. (Why is melon flavored Dew blue? Good question.) It took us several small sips to really figure it out, but it is like a cool melon flavor that reminds us of something Hi-Chew would make. Perfect for summer, but you wouldn’t guess that from the label, although the artwork is really great (although misleading).
We picked up a single 20 oz from our local WalMart checkout aisle. We paid $1.49 USD and we recommend trying this if you love Mtn Dew or like melon flavored drinks. With summer coming soon, we think this would be a great flavor to enjoy in warmer weather.
