This year’s mystery flavor tastes like bomb pops and the Faygo Firework flavor. I’ll score it a 7/10.
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.
They combined Code Red, White Out, and Voltage for this patriotic flavor, aptly named. The White Out was my favorite alternative Mountain Dew flavor, but they don’t carry it anymore. When I first tried the DEW-S-A it seemed to have an odd aftertaste and I couldn’t place it from the 3 flavors. I got used to it after a few sips and it ended up being a solid drink, earning a 7.5 out of 10.
You can definitely taste the watermelon and it’s on the sweeter side. I’ll give it a 7/10.

This is not good. Probably the worst flavor I’ve ever had. I give it 2/10.
Tastes a little like Skittles. This gets 8/10 from me.
