I appreciate a delicious novelty soda pop as much as the next sugar-loving ding-dong, but I don’t spend a ton of time in the supermarket’s soda aisle. That’s why I shrugged when Takeout associate editor Brianna Wellen posed a question: How many flavors of MTN DEW are there, exactly?
The question came after MTN DEW Purple Thunder made its debut, followed shortly by the release of MTN DEW Spark and the upcoming return of MTN DEW Typhoon, the latter of which was announced today.
“I mean, it’s one soda brand,” I scoffed in my best Lucille Bluth impression. “How many varieties could there be?”
Reader, the answer is: 32. If we count Typhoon, which makes its return on June 1, there are currently 32 dadgum flavors of MTN DEW. That’s so many. With that, I’d like to review the sheer abundance of high-octane, hummina-hummina, toxic-sludge-tinted flavors MTN DEW currently has to offer. Why? Because knowledge is power, my friends. If extraterrestrials invade and demand to sample humankind’s most impressive beverages, you can be their guide. Behold, the current MTN DEW canon, in its entirety.
MTN DEW flavors sold in grocery stores
To understand the depths of MTN DEW’s in-store offerings, you must look beyond the snot-green hue of classic DEW. Depending on your grocery store of choice, you can also score flavors like Major Melon and MTN DEW Spark, a new member of the DEW fam said to resemble raspberry lemonade. (Yes. I want it.) Certain grocery stores also carry MTN DEW’s line of Kickstart energy drinks.
