Food find: Mountain Dew Game Fuel

Mountain Dew has more varieties than I can keep up with. Now they've come out with Game Fuel, a bright orange beverage with characters from the upcoming Halo 3 on the front. It's a limited edition beverage timed for the premiere of the game.

I don't know about the caffeine content, but my teeth tell me the sugar content was high. It tasted like an orange gummy bear crossed with those cheap orange Popsicle that come in a box of 100 for $3. It was carbonated and nice a bubbly, but very sugary. It was something like 290 calories for the bottle, so I sipped cautiously. I only made it through about half of it because it was so rich.

The new Mountain Dew has a different flavor than the original formula, but maybe familiar to some tasters because of childhood candies. I like the beverage, but I don't think that I could sit down and drink a whole bottle because it tastes too much like candy.

I "used" to love drinking mountain dew- I still do. But I stopped when I rad somewhere that the caffeine content in mountain dew is the highest of all soft drinks, even coke. Guess the flavoured one must be the same. But I cant wait to try it.

A long time I do´t taste mountain Drew,this soft drink is not imported for here.I think in the last 10 years.

I lived on stuff like this when I was younger and it's tastey...but very addictive...that's why they make it like this..thus the obesity problem here. I hate to be a downer, but...

On a lighter note...thanks for visiting my site Kelly!
