The other two flavors!

A few days ago I posted about the three new flavors of Mountain Dew (Supernova, Voltage, and Revolution). I blogged about my opinion of "Revolution".

Now it's time for me to try the other two.
I have a bottle of "Supernova" and a bottle of "Voltage" right here with me.

Everyone sit down and get comfy... but still try to maintain an aura of apprehensive excitement. Open your eyes a little wider...
Yes. That's it.

Ok, here we go!
Opening the bottle of VOLTAGE first....
On the label, it says "Charged with raspberry citrus flavor and ginseng".
Unscrewing the cap.... taking a drink....
Very nondescript. I taste neither raspberry nor citrus. It tastes like.... nothing. Just sweet liquid with bubbles in it and a vague hint of forgotten fruitiness that is barely worth mentioning.
Now for the SUPERNOVA.
This is the pink one. On the label it says "With a blast of strawberry melon flavor and ginseng."
Trying it....
* pause*
Well, there is at least enough flavor to detect the strawberry. And maybe a tiny whisper of melon. Not much, though. Not as fruity as I was hoping. Mostly it's just bubbly sugar water with some artificial berry thrown in for good measure.
My verdict is that none of the three are as good as regular Mountain Dew. If I had to choose a favorite, I'd pick the one I tried last time; the blueberry one.
Five flavors Mountain Dew should NOT try:
1) Pesticide Punch
2) Weasel Droppings
3) Peppercorn Vinaigrette
4) Mud Puddle
5) Antifreeze
Though I probably shouldn't have said that, because now I've given them ideas.

I also think they should avoid doing trials of these flavors:

1) Diet Dustbunny Dew
2) Scab Soda
3) diet Pepsi MAXI
4) Citrus Chiggers
5) Grouty Colonics

I wonder how much Caffeine they have.

Appreciate the public service you provided here. Don't have to waste my money trying it myself. That means I have more $ left for Code Red and the good old-fashioned original.

I liked Pitch Black but they stopped making it. I must have been the only one.
I know it was purely psychological but I felt that the draker the Dew, the angrier the blodd.

I don't like any soda with ginseng in it. blech. It makes it taste yucky!

Marilyn said...

They have all these flavors of ultra caffinated sodas... they should make a soda with valerian in it to put us to sleep at night... With this trend of naming flavors after celestial/electrical things that don't have taste, they couldname it Nebula or Power Outage.

Whall: ESPECIALLY the grouty colonics.

Lynda: Not sure how much, but it must have some. Plus ginseng, whatever the heck that does.

Peggy: You're welcome.

CincyDiva: I tried the PitchBlack stuff once. It was sort of grape-like. I didn't really care much for it. Glad you liked it, though.

Shelli: Apparently so!

Marilyn: How about "Black Hole"? No, wait... that sounds bad...
