Review of Mtn Dew Spiked – Lemonade

 

Mtn Dew Spiked Lemonade main

I did a review for Spiked Raspberry Lemonade yesterday so most of the general product information is still the same. You can find that article here: Review of Mtn Dew Spiked – Raspberry Lemonade

Mtn Dew is releasing a new sub-brand of Dew called Spiked. This is one of currently only two flavors in the Spiked brand. “Spiked” gets it name from the fact that it is “spiked with prickly pear cactus juice”. These are NOT spiked with any alcoholic or adult type beverages. These are only going to be available in 16oz cans.

The cans artwork is similar to that of the Kickstart sub-brand with a faded background image of the new regular Mtn Dew graphics. I actually prefer the Spiked can design over the Kickstart can designs; to me it is simple and stylish. They aren’t as over the top as most energy drink designs are, which I think is really nice.

The most interesting thing about this new drink I think is the fact that it says “No Artificial Sweeteners” on the side. It is 140 calories just like Mtn Dew White and Green labels but it doesn’t have the added sucralose and acesulfame potassium. Sucralose is a low-calorie sweetener and acesulfame potassium is a calorie-free sweetener. Spiked is actually low calorie drink yet with no fake sugar; thats really great in my book.

It smells like grapefruit but maybe that is just me today. I can smell a hit of citrus but mostly its a fruit smell. The color is a definitely a lemonade yellowish color and a bit transparent.

Mtn Dew Spiked Lemonade words

When I taste it the thought that comes to mind is “summer time outdoor drink”. Maybe it also reminds me of drinking my grandparents lemonade during the summer. The prickly pear taste is what stands out most to me over the lemon taste. Its definitely a unique taste. I’ve got to say this is a good one. It has almost half the sugar of regular Mtn Dew and it is still sweet. Makes me wonder if they sweetened Mtn Dew with more real juice would it be just as good.

    How do you get all these drinks before they even get released.

    They have this in the soda fountain at my local Taco Bell. I loved it, but was not sure why it was called ‘spiked.’ Thanks for the review, as I can not find much more about it online and apparently it is not yet available in stores.
