Save your money, folks. This soft drink is the most wretched idea in the history of bad soft drink ideas. I'm telling you this so you save your $1.50 for a 2 liter or worse your $4 for a twelve pack. Just so you can put this into perspective, I *liked* Crystal Pepsi.

Worst idea since syrupy, carbonated drinks.

Atleast you can still enjoy Mountain Dew Pitch Black Code Red and Livewire. Aswell as the only available in taco bell Baja Blast. Mountain Dew Rules.

I loathe Mountain Dew.

I'm a Sun Drop/Squirt/Mountain Dew man.

I do have to admit taht Livewire wasn't too bad, though.

The best damned new soft drink in recent times was Red Fusion. It was the essence of Dr. Pepper. Unfortunately, I heard of and even tasted the variation in the product between the Coke and Pepsi bottlers that were handling it. The Coke bottler down in Macon produced a much crisper, tastier product than the Pepsi bottler did up here (theirs was too sweet and yet watered down).

Red Fusion? Come on now lets not get crazy. There is barely any variation in the flavor from red fusion to normal dr. pepper. Now I love dr. pepper, and red fusion was good. But I think it only was good because it tasted nearly exactly like Dr. P.

Since the movie Days of Thunder I had always been a Mellow Yellow fan. Then I saw the light and found that Mountain Dew was just 4 times better. Not only does the original flavor taste good, but all of the new ones taste good as well. Code Red especially tastes good with Vodka as an added bonus. I call it Ivans Blood. Mountain Dew rules.

If I had to say there was one soft drink better than the Mountain Dew line, it would be Tahitian Treat. It's more rare than all of the others but if you ever come across it I beg you to try it. For your own good. Your taste buds will never be the same again.

Also you hear about the new Dr. Pepper coming out? Its Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper or something, sounds good.

That was the genius of Red Fusion -- it was Dr. Pepper without the heavy taste. It was light and very tasty.

I keep meaning to try Tahitian Treat. We have a goot DPSU bottler here. Thank goodness -- I love A&W, Sunkist, 7up, and loved dnL while it was here. I can't bring myself to try 7up Plus, though.

I'm anxiously awaiting C-V Dr. Pepper. :)

JJ - don't try 7-Up Plus. Personally, I think that it sucks! I love Cherry 7-Up, Wild Cherry Pepsi, Dr. Pepper and the Dew!

Anybody remember Jolt?

I didn't think I'd like Pepsi Vanilla either, but I'm hooked on that crap now. I'll give it a try, but I don't think it'll be that good. Eggnog flavor is what's going through my mind.

Some weird sodas are great for mixing with alcohol.


That pepsi Vanilla taste awesome with some captain mo.

I bet that pepsi spice and some amaretto would make a heluva drink

mmmmm mountain poo, i can hardly wait!:roflmao:

I love my rum and cola, but I really think I prefer Vanilla Coke with the Cap'n. What's even better than that is regular Coke with Cruzan vanilla rum.

So good...

Why is it that certain drinks taste better out of the tap? I love Dr. Pepper, but I love it when I get it from Burger King.

I find that Coke and Pepsi often taste too carbonated out of the fountain machine. To combat this, I put a packet of sugar into my glass. It releases a good deal of the carbonation. I believe salt would do the same thing, but that just seems too strange to me...

Nothing like adding another 10 grams of sugar to a drink made purely from it....

Anyway, the only drink i really like alot more out of the tap is sprite and 7up and sierra...as for soda with booze.

Everclear isn't legal in NY but we got a assload of 1.75 liter bottles up here and made some good drinks from it. Pour a crapload of it and mix it with a 2 liter Orage Soda (Your choice) then we threw in a Grape Kool-Aid packet (the powder). Barely tasted like any booze was in there and there was a ton and we all got pretty hammered.

Also being on a budget over the summer (mostly from buying hennesy and Hypnotiq and Alize[the ladies seemed to dig it]) normally i'd just buy a 1.75 Castillo rum and some Diet Coke (gotta keep my sexy figure). Some Vodka and Code Red isn't bad. Seven and Sevens are always good...normally I try to make good drinks with real mixers and crap though but you can only really do that at certain party's...like friends places not random ones ya bust in. Ya'll don't have to deal with that though being of legal age...

Well, sometimes it tastes watery out of the tap.
But when it's good it's the best.
Lemon-Lime drinks > Everything

No dude, it doesnt.
Mountain Dew: Pitch Black also sucks!

True about the water..you can even see with like coke that its a lighter color sometimes when it comes out, then it just tastes like ***.

PS: Code Red rules, the only thing cooler is PITCH BLACK. Delicious blast of grape goodness into my dew. I had more Baja blast earlier at taco bell. Yum

Fresca anyone? :D

Jimmy James

I liked the sugary version of Fresca known as Citra.

As far as adding even more sugar to my Coke, that's actually the first sugar it has seen. That high fructose corn syrup is nasty and would be done away with in a perfect world.

I prefer the Gatorade. The grape tastes much better than grape kool-aid to me.

I only do that with the fountain drinks when they taste off to me.
