New Mountain Dew Kickstart Available Everywhere Starting Today

The latest beverage from Mountain Dew goes nationwide today and it’s called Kickstart.  Available in Orange Citrus and Fruit Punch.  Each 16-oz can is 80 calories and is aimed at the morning energy drink market.  Mountain Dew KickstartWith my recent addiction to coffee, I’m having trouble identifying how much of an impact Kickstart is having on my daily routine.  Everyone will react differently, but a can will give you more caffeine than regular Mountain Dew so that’s something.  92 milligrams of caffeine to be more specific.  The Orange Citrus tastes like what you’d probably expect.   It’s a flatter Orange Crush without the feeling of artificial flavors glued to your tongue afterwards.   Lighter carbonation  Hey 5% real fruit juice!  That’s not much of a sell for me.  Taking it straight from the can is how I’d normally approach an energy drink for fear the color will resemble window washer fluid.  The light orange color to Orange Citrus Kickstart didn’t scare me too much.  Have you tried Mountain Dew Kickstart?  What do you think?Mountain Dew Kickstart New
