New Mountain Dew flavors!


I love Mountain Dew. Oh yeah. I love the rush, baby. I can't drink coffee very often, because it results in what I call a "Double-Ass Blowout" or sometimes even a "Triple-Ass Blowout." At morning meetings, everyone around the table has coffee and I have my caffeinated breakfast drink: Mountain Dew LiveWire. (Here, LiveWire = orange.) So it's almost like caffeinated orange juice, and in fact I've been known to mix the to for heady neural jumpstart.

Today at Target, the Mountain Dew was stacked high on the endcap. "Oh yay, it's on sale."

But wait... WTF? A blue box! A pretty ice blue box! More pretty new boxes! That's right, there are three new flavors:

Mountain Dew Revolution: Infused with Wild Berry fruit flavor and Ginseng
Mountain Dew Voltage: Charged with Raspberry Citrus flavor and Ginseng
Mountain Dew Supernova: With a Blast of Strawberry Melon Flavor and Ginseng

These are "Dew Drinker Designed" flavors, and only one of the three will survive. (Vote here.) I haven't tried them yet, but I'll post an update here when I do. I've been burned by new Dew flavors before, most notably Pitch Black II, some sort of extreme sour grape video game disaster. I have higher hopes for the new flavors - how wrong can basic fruits taste?

Atmosphere on Conan

South Minneapolis will be proud: Atmosphere performs "You" on the Late Show. Killer.

UPDATE: I Just realized who that woman is singing on this awesome tune, and the last few Atmosphere albums: My old friend from Twin Cities Public Television, Mankwe Ndosi. Sweet! We used to work on a project called Learning Park and we on the teevee together once. She's an amazing improvisational vocalist and all-around love energy kind of person.
