A New Exclusive Mt. Dew Flavor Available In The Corridor
Earlier this spring I documented my search for a new flavor of Mountain Dew called Purple Thunder. However, I discovered that it was a flavor available exclusively to a brand of convenience stores not found in Eastern Iowa. Imagine my excitement when just yesterday I found out that a well-known store with many locations here in the corridor will also be getting their own flavor of Mountain Dew!
In a press release yesterday Casey's and Mountain Dew announced that a new flavor would be appearing in stores starting this month. That new flavor is called Moutain Dew Overdrive! I am a sucker for Mountain Dew. My day begins with a Diet Dew, but I've tried most of the new flavors recently, with the exception of the Flamin Hot Dew. Sorry, I just can't. So what does the Overdrive taste like? It is described as Dew with a citrus punch featuring hints of mango, raspberry, and lime.
According to the press release, Mountain Dew Overdrive will be available at more than 2,400 Casey's stores in both 20-ounce bottles and as an option in their fountain machines. Just when will it arrive? It depends on which Casey's you go to. I hit the store on West 8th Ave. in Marion yesterday and they had the 20-ounce bottles in stock. I stopped at a different Casey's store early this morning, and they didn't have it in stock yet.
So what does it taste like? I had a few sips yesterday and to me, it tasted like Mountain Dew with some fruit punch and lime thrown in. I'll be honest, I liked it and look forward to putting it in my soda rotation this summer!
