So after my adventures in Mountain Dew's version of World of Warcraft and the subsequent nausea, I decided: F' it. I'll drink through the entire Mountain Dew rainbow of pain.

First up we have the blue one, aka Voltage.

This one is, well, weird. It tastes like blue Kool Aid mixed with Sprite. It's a very odd flavor. It's not like the others so far that have been Mountain Dew with extra crap dumped in. No it's like they had a flavor sitting around the lab they didn't know what the hell to do with so they just stuck a Mountain Dew label on it. It's okay, nothing great, but it still triggers that too-much-sugar Mountain Dew stomach turn.

I don't hate it, but I certainly don't love it either. It does get points for being an odd flavor, not a lot of Raspberry/Ginseng sodas out there really. I would say try it, unless you already know you don't like really sugary sodas.

Coldie's Taste-O-Meter:
gulpgulpgulp

Next up:
We have the orange one, aka Livewire.

Easily the least repulsive flavor of Dew I've encountered. To sum up the taste, take any orange soda, let's go with orange Faygo. Now dump an extra cup of sugar in it and you have Livewire.

Again much like Voltage, it's not bad, but it's mega-sugary taste is a huge turn-off for me. Any idiot can 'improve' a soda's flavor by just continuing to add sugar until the brain is shoved into a sugary coma and no longer cares about 'flavor.'

But out of the flavors of Dew-m I have so far ingested, Livewire is my pick of which to drink when a gun is pressed to my temple. I certainly won't seek them out on my own free will.

I will drink original MD, but there's almost always a better option.

I know to stay away from the licensed flavors, like Master Chief's Piss:



But I actually like LiveWire.

I drink it almost every morning on the way to work. My favorite by far was/is Pitch Black (the grape one). It was limited time, but man that was the stuff when going to work at 4 am.

Master Chief should probably be consulting his doctor. His piss is not a healthy color at all.

Anyway, i want to even have a chance to try. Let it be MY option to chose, not someone in marketing section of Pepsi, Coca-Cola (or other company).

For example i like vanilla coke - and we don't have it in Poland (ohh, i know one sore where i can buy it in my city - but i have to pay about 250%-300% price of normal coke - it's becouse vanilla coke is imported by this shop from Germany).

I know that polish market is not so big - we have less than 40kk people, but still i like lots of products that i have chance to try in other countries.

Vanilla Coke Zero = Coldie's personal nirvana.

I love that stuff and NOBODY carries it unless I want to but 24 cans at a time. Sometimes I just want one.

Oh well, it is my cross to bear.
