Shockingly, this doesn’t sound terrible.
This time of year, we’re bombarded with holiday-themed versions of our favorite snack foods. While some brands lean in to the holiday season with bizarre (or downright disgusting) flavor combos, Mountain Dew’s new release actually sounds delightful.
A Pepsi employee leaked a photo of the Merry Mash-Up flavor back in July:
The cranberry-pomegranate soda has finally been spotted in stores. Instagram user @snackstalker snapped a picture:
Since the soda was just released, it’s hard to gauge how Mountain Dew’s extremely devoted fan base will react. (Seriously, the lemon-lime drink’s wiki is impressively maintained.)
One Twitter user seems to really enjoy the festive flavor, though:
Hmmm. That sounds strange, but intriguing.
If nothing else, this would be amazing in a Christmas party cocktail.
