That was my impression of my first taste of the new Mtn Dew Major Melon, charged with Watermelon. Reminded me of a 7-Eleven slurpee – no specific flavor but the general taste/sweetness and the “bite.” Overall, this drink is good, so good that half of the 20 oz bottle is now gone while writing these […]

On my last day in Japan, I saw a vending machine that sold Mountain Dew. This was the first appearance of Dew that I came across after two weeks traveling the cities of Nippon. This was surely a sign of what was to come. Back in Hawaii while stopping by a Walmart, I went a […]
A Dew is a Dew
Seemingly, no matter where you go a Dew is a Dew is a Dew. Even in China, I knew this drink was a Mountain Dew (even with the hyper-neon bottle).
Surge, It’s Been a Long Time
It’s been a long time since my last drink of Surge. Discontinued in the early 2000’s, Surge is now back (at least temporarily) for that retro caffeine kick with the OG recipe. It’s not a reboot or a new flavor. This is straight up Surge. After 14 years, Surge is more fizzy than I remember. […]
Apple Pay Worked for Me
Upgrading to iOS 8.1 was easy enough, but then what do I do with an Apple Pay enabled iPhone 6? You try it out on a break room vending machine, and amazingly Apple Pay worked! First, I had to setup Apple Pay, associating my iTunes information for payment. Then I walked by the vending machine […]
Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Surge Soda
Wow, just wow. Thanks to the social media push of the Surge Movement, Coca Cola is bringing back Surge for a limited time. From 1996, Surge battled Mountain Dew in the citrus soda space but eventually lost out when Surge was discontinued in the early 2000’s. Available only from Amazon, the return of Surge was […]
Starbucks Handcrafted Sodas Coming June 24
I guess the trials went well since it appears Starbucks is prepping to roll out their handcrafted sodas on June 24, 2014. Yep, sodas, not tea or coffee. I spied a “soda fizzer” (my term) at a local SBUX waiting to be installed.
Taking a Pepsi Bath
Why take a bath in Pepsi, I don’t know. But listen to the fizzing carbonation and watch the look of discomfort on the guy.
Quad Mtn Dew Kickstart
The entire line of Mtn Dew Kickstart is now readily available in Hawaii. Safeway had the new Black Cherry and Limeade in stock along with Fruit Punch and Orange Citrus. If you’re a Safeway member, there’s a sale as well. 🙂
Kickstart Your Morning with Mountain Dew
You know there is nothing wrong with drinking a Mountain Dew in the morning. It’s just soda’s equivalent to morning coffee you know. Not buying that? Well then, Kickstart is for you. Kickstart is a new fruit-flavored Mountain Dew aimed for the AM. Orange Citrus and Fruit Punch Kickstart kicks off this new line starting […]
Passing on the Pepsi Paradise Mango
Spotted the Pepsi Next Paradise Mango drink at the Palama Market, and though the thought of the mix of flavors baffled me, I had to try this drink. That was one week ago. Today, I’ve already forgotten the flavor. Okay, I do remember one tidbit, my initial taste. On my first sip, I do remember […]
24×24 Means Lots of Dew
If you need more Mountain Dew in your blood stream, Costco sells 24-oz size bottles in a 24 pack. That’s a whopping 576 oz of caffeinated Mtn Dew for you! Great for a hot day at the beach. Look for them in the paper goods section?!
