Mountain Dew - Pitch Black

POST #    1257

Mountain Dew Pitch Black is some sort of concoction from the makers of Mountain Dew. It has a "blast of grape with other natural flavors," but it tastes more like a strange artificial grape flavored drink that only Mountain Dew could do. It doesn't taste quite as grapey as Welch's grape soda, but it is a "limited edition" that will only be sold through Halloween. If it does well, I'm thinking it will continue to be sold. What can I say, I'm a sucker.

I don't even like grape soda that much. But when in the need for caffeine and sugar, there's nothing quite like a Mountain Dew product and it hit the spot. Sure, I crashed and couldn't keep my eyes open a few hours later, but for the hours after drinking Pitch Black, I was flying.

This looks fooking awesome. Where can I get some? Just any old bodega? I am keeping my eyes peeled...

Grapes should be left to make wine, not pop. Yuck! The whole thing sounds thoroughly disgusting, but then, that's a Brits view of grape flavoured anything.

sam, i picked it up at the local BP, so you'll probably be able to find it at a gas station as you drive cross country. then again, with that car, you might not have to stop at all.

I think the good folks over at Mountain Dew owe the Nehi people some money. Its an identical concoction.

You have to give them credit for coming up with great names for the flavors- nothing boring like "cherry" or "orange" "grape". Pitch Black ranks #2 in my book:

1. Original Dew
2. Pitch Black
3. Code Red
4. LiveWire
