    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.

    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?
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    There was a time when my daily consuming of Mountain Dew was around 64 ounces or so (a cup of 32 ounces at breakfast, another 32 ounces for dinner). Yeah sure it kept me awake at night but I like the taste and the buzz it gave.

    Then one day I had a pain in my hip, went to see my doctor about it, after taking my blood pressure, the staff started to act kind of weird sort like how doctors on TV act when somebody has a heart attack or some major trauma, even though I was feeling okay if you don't count the pain in the hip. So they hooked me up to the EKG, got lectured about losing weight, staying off the caffeine, prescribe me some medications and referred me to another doctor. This was in Spring 1999. I was caffeine free for 2 years, then started drinking Mountain Dew again but limiting my intake to a 20 ounce bottle of it a day which I thought was reasonable.

    In fall of 2005 I was drinking more of it, 2 or more bottles a day. I figured I should stop drinking it this year and see what happens. The last time I had Mountain Dew was New Year's Eve and I told my friend I was giving up caffeine as a New Year resolution.

    Do I miss drinking Mountain Dew? Yeah I do.

    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.

    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:
    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.

    Guess I'm old fashioned. I like the original, though I can't say I've had one in awhile. By the way, what would be the point of caffeine free dew? I mean, without the buzz, why bother?

    I guess for those who like the taste of Mountain Dew but need to reduce the amount of caffeine intake. I know it's available in Canada but I haven't seen it in Hawaii.

    Cool Re: Doing the Dew

    I'm probably going to sound weird but I LOVE the taste of Mountain Dew! The good old fashioned original is always going to be my most favorite one (it's the only soda I can drink at room temperature).

    BUT... Damn, I love the Mt. Dew: Livewire! That has go to be one of my most favorite sodas too. It reminds me of that soda Orange Crush, which before I moved here to TX, I hadn't seen in Hawaii in what seemd like ages! For those who say it's "just orange soda", I'd have to say, no wayz! It's great. Now that I'm in TX, I don't see Livewire anywhere I see Code Red going strong, but BLECH! It taste like fizzy Robitussin! As for the Pitch Black, I liked the first version OK... the second version just didn't do it for me... just was a bit too sour.

    On a side note: I'm totally jazzed that there's Orange Crush in a bottle here! WooHoo! Sometimes you forget what old favorites are like eh?

    Out here in TX, Dr Pepper is King of Soda but they call it "coke" because that doesn't mean Coca-Cola here... auwe!, so confusing this Dixie vernacular!

    Ok, me stop rambling now, hehehe

    You should add a vote to the poll in our old Soda or Pop thread.

    Doctor Pepper?!? Eeesh.

    That's always cracked me up when I visit certain parts of the South - I can order "coke" with a meal, and they ask "what flavor?" Of course, they mean "what kind of soda," because they refer to them generically as "coke."

    But not everywhere in the South - they are very clear on "coke" meaning "Coca-Cola" in much of Georgia, since Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola.

    Hey, bizzyb0t --- do they have CheerWine around you in Texas? Sorta like a cherry Dr. Pepper. I get it in the Carolinas when I'm there.

    I had never given it a thought when I lived in Alabama and Kentucky, because I learned as a child. to call all "sugary carbonated beverages" coke too--it wasn't until I moved to the Midwest that I realized that I had to clarify what kind and start calling it "pop," or I'd end up literally with the actual brand name Coke soda drink (blech). That's no Mountain Dew!

    I've never been to the mainland except when I was kid and we went to Disneyland/Universal Studios/Knotts Berry Farm kind tours. So being here in Texas full-time has taken some time to get used to, when requesting things to drink.

    As for the "CheerWine" I haven't come across it yet. I do know that they have a soda called, "Big Red" that's just like the Diamond Head Red Cream soda I always thought that Hawaii was the only place to have that flavor (which is half strawberry and half creme soda). So I was happy. What supermarket chain would I see CheerWine at? I haven't been to any grocery stores here except for H-E-B and Wal-Mart, and believe it or not but that's almost the only two choices I have unless I drive a couple of hours away!

    I heard someone yesterday call Mt. Dew "pisswater". So I guess the post about the origins of the phrase "Doing the Dew" are true - at least to some extent.

    Hey, I just Googled "CheerWine" and found the page!Looks Yummy!. I gotta ask some people around here if they know where I can get some. The Cool Moon looks pretty good to. I wonder if it's like Mt. Dew?

    Geez, now I'm thirsty again!

    During a trip to Virginia I found a 2 liter bottle of Caffeine Free Diet Mountain Dew being sold at Food Lion store (it might be a chain of supermarkets in their area). I picked up a bottle and drank a few cups of it. It sort of taste like the Diet Mountain Dew.

    I still want to try Caffeine Free Mountain Dew and see how it compare to the regular Mountain Dew.

    The only time I find it regularly now is when I cross the border into Canada; in a blind taste-test between the two, I doubt I could pick which is caffeinated and which is not.

    Then again, regarding Mountain Dew without caffeine, I would say: what's the point?

    P.S.) Food Lion is a grocery chain in the mid-Atlantic and southern states.
