Voo Dew III
Mountain Dew (2021)
For the third year in a row, Pepsi has released a spooky mystery flavor of Mountain Dew for the Halloween season. The first Voo Dew from 2019 reminded me of Fruit Loops cereal and Creamsicles. Last year's Voo Dew II tasted like Tropical Skittles candy. This year's version is a bit more difficult to describe. It sort of reminds me of Yipe Stripe Fruit Stripe Gum, but with a more tart citrus flavor. I'm not as crazy about it as I was last year or the year before.
The skeptical part of my brain has me wondering if they just keep releasing the same flavor, but I'm interpreting it differently from year to year. I wish I thought to save a bottle from the last two years to do a side-by-side comparison.
I'm not sure how much longer this will be available, but I'm guessing that when Halloween has passed and the Christmas merchandise begins to take over the local grocery stores, Voo Dew III is probably going to start getting a little harder to find. If you want to try it, I'd suggest picking up a bottle as soon as you see it.
