Mtn Dew Maui Burst

The can looks fun, that’s for sure. You get some familiarity with the original Mountain Dew flavor, spiked with some pineapple. I’d drink it again.

MtDewVirus Score: 6.5/10

Mtn Dew Liberty Brew

The color, which you can’t appreciate from this photo, is awesome. That’s where the awesome ends though. “50 flavors in one” is a terrible idea or maybe they added too much of the Ohio flavor. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Liberty Brew gets 3/10.

Different Tastes

I tried a few different things last week.

These Skittles were weird. I wouldn’t buy them again.

I was very skeptical of Coke Zero, but it was actually decent. Certainly a lot better than Diet Coke, which is fucking gross. This is a suitable replacement for a Coke. I also tried a Cherry Coke Zero but there wasn’t much cherry flavor to it.

Mountain Dew Tropical Smash

Whenever I see a new flavor of Mountain Dew, I like to try it. There are very few I ever buy again. This is will definitely not be a repeat purchase. Can’t beat the original.

Over the last couple of years, CrossFit has joined in the fight against Big Soda (search for “soda” in the Journal for many other articles), trying to get better warning labels and educate people about the effects of sugar on our bodies.

My love for pop (especially Mountain Dew) is no secret. I also know I shouldn’t be drinking it. Sooner or later the sugar is going to catch up to me. But, damn, it’s so yummy; I can’t resist!
