Mountain Dew has brought back Pitch Black and I’m not sure I ever had it. I couldn’t find a MtDewVirus review for it, so here we are. I was trying to figure out what this tasted like when B said “It tastes like a flat grape Crush.” She had it. It’s a shitty version of a grape pop, so it only gets a 4/10. I would not buy this.
I don’t often review drinks that aren’t a flavor of Mtn Dew, but Brandi brought home this new brand from Pepsi called Starry. It’s really good and a nice option for when you want something refreshing without caffeine. I’ll buy a bottle sometimes. I give it a very solid 8.5/10.
We recently watched Pepsi, Where’s My Jet? and they had everyone do a blind taste test with Pepsi and Coke. I had to try it.
What would you choose?
At The Irish Harp Pub in Niagara on the Lake.
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.
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.
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.
The apple flavor reminds me of something, but I can’t place it. Definitely not like the amazing green apple Jolly Ranchers. I can’t decide if I like the taste or not so I’ll give it a 6/10.
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.
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.

This is not good. Probably the worst flavor I’ve ever had. I give it 2/10.
