New "Live Wire" Mountain Dew?

  1. Anyone try this stuff yet? I did and it's goooood! But what is the reason having it available for this summer only? A trial perhaps to see how well it sells? I'm no business person, but as a consumer, it's delicious!

    Not real orangy like the others. My daughter says it's alittle tangeriny tasting. Try it, you might like it. I also like it because it doesn't have so much carbonation that makes you belch your way through a can or a bottle or even a glass full of the stuff.

    I tried it last weekend. It reminded me of the "old" orange crush that I drank 20 years ago. The new crush tastes different. I like the new mountain dew but can't drink it because it is not diet. Don't need the added calories.

    As far as only being available for the summer, I think if sales are overwhelming they will keep it. It's a marketing technique.

    I hope they come out with a "diet" version.

    Is that the one that comes in a clear bottle? I've been seeing sprite in a different bottle but not looked close up to see if it is a different flavor.

    My kids love the tropical flavor sprite and the new dew, so does hubby. I'll stick with my plain old pepsi!

    I must be getting old and stuck in my the original mountain dew...although the new Sierra Mist is good too

    RN2B,'s in a clear bottle. Tasted blah to me but maybe my tastebuds are senile.

    I haven't tried it yet, but now you have piqued my curiosity...

    Not to hijack the thread (she apologizes and then does it anyway!), but how about the Pepsi & Coke w/ lemon in it...kinda tastes like Lemon Pledge to me!
