10 Mountain Dew Drinks That EMBARRASSED The Company!!!

10 Mountain Dew Drinks That EMBARRASSED The Company!!!


Embarrassment is no fun. Everyone has been embarrassed by something
at one time or another. Even big companies get embarrassed. Let’s face it, everyone makes mistakes – some
bigger than others. Now let’s take a look at ten Mountain Dew
soda drinks that embarrassed the company. Mountain Dew A.M. This version of Mountain Dew was meant to
be consumed in the, yup, you guessed it, the morning. Yes, Mountain Dew does have plenty of caffeine
in it and could act as an alternative to coffee, but that does not mean it should be. Consuming Mountain Dew in the morning will
wake you up, but may not be the healthiest to start the day. The Mountain Dew A.M wasjust Mountain Dew
mixed with orange juice. Orange juice is an obvious breakfast favorite. It is also very mixable. People mix orange juice with champagne, creating
a holiday or special occasion drink we all know as the mimosa. People mix orange juice with vodka, creating
a quick and easy cocktail called the screw driver. But, were we really looking for another orange
juice mixer? If you don’t think this is that bad give
it a try… You’ll see that the Mountain Dew A.M is
just not the best way to start your morning and you’ll surely be longing for a mimosa
instead. Mountain Dew Pitch Black II: Sour Black Grape During the 2004 Halloween season Mountain
Dew released a sour grape drink they called Mountain Dew Pitch Black. The drink was successful enough for it to
be brought back the following Halloween. This drink was the only sequel Mountain Dew
ever made, and will probably be the last. Why the last? Well the company makes so many different flavors,
under so many different names, that having something come back with the same name is
kind of odd for them. This drink was also kind of a fail because
it was sour. It tasted like a candy drink that you can
only have a little bit of. It’s not something you drink alongside your
meal. It was really sour and sweet and kind of coated
your teeth in stickiness. Grape is also a hit or miss. Many people adore grape flavor and others
just can’t take it. The grape flavor was probably chosen because
of its dark color that could easily be transmitted into a sour Halloween themed soda. Just what Halloween was missing! Not. Mountain Dew Supernova Let’s all just commend the name of this
one… Mountain Dew Supernova… like when suns explode. That sounds cool. That name is pretty hip and unlike any other
soda name out there. The Mountain Dew was said to give a blast
of strawberry melon flavor and ginseng. It was a very bright magenta color and was
not actually consistent from one country to the next. In Europe, the Supernova has raspberry lemon
flavor and was orange. That sounds like a whole other drink, no? Why would they sell two different sodas under
the same name? They do enough variations that they could
have just made this into two instead of lumping them together. Mountain Dew’s lack of consistency was pretty
silly and confused customers. Imagine traveling to Europe and going to buy
a Mountain Dew Supernova and finding out that it is something completely different than
what you had in North America? Yes, having some variation in different countries
can be cool. Like going to a McDonalds in India versus
England, or Thailand, or Switzerland, or Canada. They all have slightly different things. But, this situation with the Mountain Dew
Supernova is nothing like that. This is not the variation of a whole restaurant
chain, but of the flavor in one product. Mountain Dew Supernova is not just Mountain
Dew Supernova it is different wherever you go and this sucks because it means you cannot
trust the company to give you what you want. Mountain Dew really messed up on this one
because it had customers losing faith in them. The Mountain Dew Supernova was a breach in
trust between the company and the customer. Mountain Dew Sangrita Blast Let’s all be clear on this: this is the
Mountain Dew Sangrita, and not Sangria. Oh, this was really embarrassing because it
did not offer drinkers the sangria that they hoped to find. The Mountain Dew Sangrita Blast was obviously
nonalcoholic and nothing like sangria. For those not in the know, sangrita is a chaser. It is meant to be served with a shot of tequila. The acidity from the tequila would be highlighted
by the chaser and cleanse the palate. Did the company think that people would buy
this, bring it home, and use it as a chaser with tequila? If they did they were assuming a lot. The word looks an awful lot like sangria and
probably had young and old alike thinking they were getting a wine and fruit flavored
soda, when they just weren’t. Mountain Dew tried to be a little bit too
hard with this one. They also served this primarily in Taco Bell’s. Having it as an option in a fast food joint
totally removes any mixing opportunities. Furthermore, if you see this listed among
many other drinks you are probably only seeing sangria, which again, is not at all what the
drink represents. This was a word play fail that had people
confused, unhappy, and wishing they actually had a proper sangria. Mountain Dew DEW-S-A Mountain Dew offers so many different versions
of their sodas, in so many unique colors, this should just create their own little Dew
rainbow. The Mountain Dew DEW-S-A is documented as
being “dark magenta”. This was created to support Memorial Day and
Independence Day in the US. It was similar to Liberty Brew, yes, they
have another patriotic blend in their very large history of blends. This new product was supposed to make you
feel patriotic and taste new but it just didn’t do that. The company’s word play was embarrassing
because it was actually missed by many people who are not saying the names of their sodas
out loud. When spoke, DEW-S-A does sound like USA, but
if you read it you completely miss this analogy and think SA is an acronym for something else,
but you don’t know what… The most hilarious part about this is that
customers expect random things from Mountain Dew, so if people were expecting SA to stand
for something, but they couldn’t figure out what it is they likely let it go! Why would you keep hunting to figure it out? Especially, if you’re pretty sure the flavor
will be gone again before you know it. Mountain Dew Holiday Brew Imagine this: your feeling jolly, got a holiday
tune stuck in your head, you’re waiting in line to buy Christmas gifts, and you see
a bright red soda in the impulse buy fridges near the cash. What could it be? As you approached you see a familiar Mountain
Dew logo, but this promises to be different than your regular Mountain Dew, this one is
an “ultimate holiday blend” and, not only that, it is also “NEW!” You immediately think that buying this is
festive and a good idea, but you do not know that in fact it is just a mix of the Code
Red Mountain Dew and the original Mountain Dew. There’s nothing holiday about this blend
other than its color. Not that you really want a candy cane or ginger
bread soda in the first place… but still… if it promises to be a Holiday brew you expect
a little bit of holiday magic. The Holiday Brew was only available during
the holiday season of 2017 and was replaced the following year with the Merry Mash-Up. Oh, what will this holiday season bring? Mountain Dew Coolatta The Mountain Dew Coolatta was not a soda per
say, it was a slushie. This was offered at select Dunkin’ Donuts
and was released in 2011. Apparently it had the texture of a smoothie. Hmmmm… Slushies and smoothies… this is exactly
what we all think of when we think about soda, right? No, absolutely not! If we wanted a slushie, we would go get one. If we wanted a smoothie, we’d go get one
of those or even just blend it up ourselves! The Mountain Dew Coolatta was just trying
to be too many things. Mountain Dew lost reliability here, because
customers went in looking for the soda they loved and came out with some weird summery
drink that was meant to be refreshing and just like a Mountain Dew, but kind of wasn’t. When a thing you know well changes into something
to the point where you do not recognize that original thing at all, well then it is something
new and not what you wanted in the first place. The Mountain Dew Coolatta only lasted one
summer season… go figure. Mountain Dew Dewshine This next Mountain Dew actually ran for longer
than one season. The Mountain Dew Dewshine was launched on
March 23, 2015 and was only discontinued in February of 2017. This version of Mountain Dew was seemingly
very different and special because it was sold in glass bottles! Then, because consistency is just not their
thing, they switched the format to a limited edition twelve ounce jug. This particular variation of the classic Mountain
Dew was also neat because it harkened back to the very, very original flavoring of the
Mountain Dew, which was citrusy. This is a fail because it could have been
something cool, but it ended up being yet another knock off of their own product that
was not able to last. Had they kept selling this in cases of four,
it probably could have done very well. Its name was also different enough that it
could have been an accompanying product to Mountain Dew. Why can’t they just make new things, make
them well, and keep them? Stop embarrassing yourself Mountain Dew! Mountain Dew Baja Blast This next one on our list of Mountain Dew
soda drinks that embarrassed the company is the Mountain Dew Baja Blast. This was tag-lined “DEW with a blast of
Natural and Artificial tropical flavor” and was advertised by Taco Bell as being like
“A tropical lime storm”. This drink was also aquamarine blue. Like pool water. Or like a cloudless sky in the summer time. Appetizing, right? The other interesting fact about this drink
is that it was only released in select Taco Bell restaurants and was said to have been
chemically formulated to taste good when eaten alongside the restaurants food. Fail! Who wants to drink something that looks like
a kiddie pool and has been tinkered with to only taste good with tacos? That just sounds odd?! It looks odd too! The Mountain Dew Baja Blast was also released
in a diet version. Then, even though they said the drink was
engineered to be eaten with Taco Bell food, they started selling it in convenience stores. Apparently it is still available today in
select locations in the United States. So, if you want your tongue to look like it
licked a mermaid and your insides to be filled with partially real and partially fake lime
flavor then this beverage is for you! Go ahead, try it! Mountain Dew Spiked Raspberry Lemonade This little Mountain Dew flavor has two names…
it can be called Mountain Dew Spiked Raspberry Lemonade or it can be called Mountain Dew
Extra Raspberry Lemonade. Why!? Why does it have two names? Pepsi Co, what were you thinking? The names are so similar and yet just ever
so slightly different. What is the purpose of this? Turns out that the drink was released as Spiked
in the U.S and Extra in Canada. We’re not exactly sure why they needed different
names in each market but…they did. This “Spiked”, or “Extra”, or whatever
you want to call it, Mountain Dew was released alongside a regular lemonade. So, now not only does the company have two
names, but it also has raspberry and lemonade going on as well. That is like four different products all lumped
into one. How ridiculous can this be? This would not pass on Shark Tank that’s
for sure! Each shark would say that the effort is there
but that the banding is not consistent enough and for that reason they’re out. Well, we are all OUT on this one Mountain
Dew… Don’t bring it back unless you have one
stable product that can be recognized and then even, may just even, found again a second
time! How do you expect to retain customers if they
never know what your product will look like or taste like? Valid questions being asked here… no? Help yourself to another sip and tap that

  2. Baja blast is literally the best mtn dew. Where the hell is White out and Mtn dew ice on this list. those are the only disgusting ones

  3. I agree with Dew A.M. that was nasty, but instead of bashing Baja Blast you should have bashed Sweet Lightning, that just tastes nasty. And I liked the Holiday Brew it toned down the taste of the Code Red

  4. When baja blast is the best flavor of Mtn Dew, and quite a few of these are actually good. This list is actually trash, honestly just seems like a list whipped together with no thought at all. This channel is like scuffed watch mojo.

  5. So basically non of the flavors are bad, just that Mountain Dew sucks at marketing, and they keeps pulling favorites out of the store.

  6. Baja blast is good….but the BEST of all time is definitely Voltage. I remember when it first came out in the contest…and it was so good and I was hoping it would win. And it did. It's still my go to soda to this day.

  7. “10 Mountain Dew drinks that EMBARRASSED the company!!!” Proceeds to talk crap about Baja blast when it’s one of the most successful products of the brand 🙄

  8. this just sounds like a half assed essay I would’ve wrote in high school obviously you just needed the money and wrote some bs top 10 list you suck honestly. It just seems like your nitpicking at the company rather then doing justified criticisms.

  9. So….if Code Red Mt. Dew is essentially Mt.Dew with Cherry flavor, and the Holiday Brew is just Code Red mixed with Mt. Dew, then wouldn't the Holiday Brew just be Mt. Dew with a weaker cherry flavor?

  10. Who remembers the Nehi soda Moonshine? It was roughly made in early `80s. It was sour. It was really sweet and uniquely Awesome!! It was my all time favorite soda. We need to get Nehi Moonshine back! WHO'S WITH ME??!??

  11. I loved Dew S A and Liberty Brew. This video just sounds like incessant whining. I can still buy Baja Blast here in Minnesota easily.

  12. Supernova (US Version), Pitch Black 2, Sangrita Blast, Liberty Brew, and Baja Blast are amazing. Baja Blast always tastes good, not just with Taco Bell food.

  13. This was literally just someone bitching pissing and moaning not understanding reginal differences and limited editions

  14. I work for a distributor for mountain dew and all these flavors besides pitch black sold well. I'm disliking🤷🏽‍♂️

  15. Definitely not gonna subscribe, the video was poorly written and it sounded like the narrator was complaining more than informing

  16. @Babbletop u really missed the marketing concept of Mountain Dew which is exactly what u r claiming is “embarrassing” which is untrue! They r constantly change on purpose that’s the strategy that is keeping them such a huge company.

  17. I fail to see the point of this list, especially since Baja Blast is a major seller. This "list" came off more as a "Oh, I hate the different flavors" and not something that embarrassed a company. Shame on the click bait title.

  18. I like the idea of this video but at the same time I feel like a lot of these complaints are forced.

    Also as for the spiked name thing it is due to Canadian alcohol laws

  19. The old dewshine was intentionally made as a mixer. Well the old mountain dew was used as a mixer with whiskey back in ye olden days. When the new/old dewshine came out I was excited and searched what drinks it was mixed with. People would mix the old stuff with various whiskeys and moonshine. I decides that id recreate some of those drinks and I was surprised, they were actually not that bad! Oh yeah, Baja blast is the best mountain dew…..lol

  20. Pitch black, supernova, sangrita, Baja blast, and raspberry lemonade are fye. Differences from country to country are cool, even if it’s just the name. Whoever wrote her script just likes to complain.

  21. why u hating on these drinks. hardly any of these could be called be considered a embarrassment to any company. and like really atlest they make new flavors to try.

  22. Baja blast isn’t just a great drink. It makes for a great,( bad slushie as they say) at Taco Bell Baja blast freeze r delicious 😋
