Mtn Dew: Typhoon

On Wednesday I saw a tweet from Mountain Dew about a new flavor I hadn’t heard of. It’s a flavor which was released to stores in 2010 but hadn’t been made in over a decade. It was only available through The Dew Store. It seemed like people had loved it, so I ordered a 6 pack of 16 ounce cans, which ran about $20 after shipping.

Dew with a Blast of Tropical Punch

I have a head cold this weekend so I wanted to drink a couple of cans before writing my review. This is easily one of the best flavors I’ve had, maybe only second (other than the original) to White Out. I’m glad I have four more cans to enjoy, but I don’t understand why they don’t keep some of these fan favorites around full-time.

I give it a 9.5/10.

Mtn Dew: Flamin’ Hot

This doesn’t even sound like a good idea and of course I was going to try it. The left side of the label says “Caution: Flamin’ Hot Taste” but there is no such thing. I definitely get a citrus flavor and can tell it’s a Mtn Dew, but there is no kick to it and not even a hint of an aftertaste. It’s actually a decent flavor, but due to falling short on its name I give it a 4/10.

Mtn Dew: Gingerbread Snap’d

I wasn’t expecting much from this special Dew, but I was quite impressed. The gingerbread flavor is very noticeable while not being overpowering. It paired well with the cider donuts I was eating. Solid 7/10 and would be higher if it was a taste I would ever select.

Mtn Dew Baja Punch

You can tell there is flavor there trying to be a tropical punch, but it’s a missed right jab when combined with the Mountain Dew. I wouldn’t get this again, so I’ll give it a 3/10.

Hopefully the Baja Flash will be better.

Cold-pressed Juices

Factor 75 sent me a selection of their new cold-pressed juices to try. I drank the Pineapple Turmeric Basil today and it tasted like I imagine a blended dandelion tasting. Do people drink this shit and enjoy it?

Update: The Apple Kale Wheatgrass and Carrot Orange Ginger were both really good. The Apple Beet Ginger has way too much beet taste, but is better than the Pineapple one.
