Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Got one of each just a few minutes ago. I only have tried a little of the White Out kind so far. Its not bad but I don't really like it a lot. Can't see myself picking up a 12 pack of it.

I miss Pitchblack. I even liked the sour version. It's the only Mountain Dew I ever remember liking, let alone buying a case of it.

I tried Typhoon today. Definitely an improvement over Whiteout.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Our Target only had Whiteout and Distortion. My verdict on both is just "meh." It's disappointing, because I liked all three flavors of the last Dewmocracy campaign. The one I had the most interest in was Typhoon, but it will have to wait until another day.

I haven't seen any of the new flavors yet. I looked at Walmart and Target. I'll check a couple more places this weekend.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I found only one 12 pack of each flavor at Target. Bought the Distortion and thought it was ok. Albertsons by me had none of them. I was hoping to find 20 oz bottles of each so I didn't have to buy 12 packs.

Ditto.
I still need to find Distortion.
When it comes down to it, nothing will ever be better than the original.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I wish they would make a variety 12 pk with 4 of each flavor. Tried whiteout today, for some reason I thought it tasted like a melted snowcone/slurpee.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

And today, I tried Distortion. It was pretty good but Typhoon would get my vote of the 3 flavors.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I think so far Distortion is my favorite flavor of the 3. Typhoon is pretty decent too though.

I wish this was available all over the place. I enjoy Taco Bell but this drink is the main reason I eat there these days.

I Tried Typhoon and the one that looks like thinned out semen in a bottle. Typhoon was pretty good and the other was just awful. I have to sample the third here soon.

I don't really ever drink regular pop, but I saw the Whiteout yesterday and had to try it. Very, very unimpressive.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Tried 'em all now. I'd rank them:

#1. Typhoon
#2. White Out
#3. Distortion

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Finally found a 20oz bottle of Typhoon. Why they didn't have the other 2...who knows. But it's not too bad. Just gotta find the other 2 now.

Tried the Typhoon today. It's ok. I like Distortion better. I still need to try White Out.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Found all three in 12 packs at Target today, on sale at $3.33.

Only tried the White Out so far. <s>Nothing special, wouldn't go out of my way for it, but wouldn't avoid it if it was the only soda available.</s>

Edit to add: You know, the more I drink it, on my second can of this night shift, the more I dislike it. I will avoid the White Out version from now on.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I like two of the new flavors.

Distortion is nice as it has a distinct lime flavor.
Typhoon is also good and I'd be fine with it winning as well.
White out just looks wrong as a pop and tastes more like squirt to me.. It sucks as well because its' leading the votes according to the dewmocracy site.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Have tried Typhoon a couple times now. Not bad, but not as good as the original or Live Wire and I doubt I'll buy it again.

This leaves Distortion as the last chance to win me on any of these new flavors.

Edit to add: Tried Distortion just now. Awful, worse of the three by far. I never waste food/drink, especially if I paid for it, but I think I'll leave these at work for others to experience.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I think I like distortion best. I will adding some tequila to it for a margarita type drink.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

I've never actually tried any of the different flavors of Mountain Dew myself. Always gone with the original and it hasn't failed me yet. Although I would choose Mountain Dew Throwback over the original all the time.

Re: Which new Mountain Dew do you choose?

Distortion seemed the best to me. A bit of an aftertaste to it but pretty good. White Out had a very mild flavor. Did not taste like squirt to me. Typhoon was terrible. I poured it out.
