Mtn Dew Spiked Lemonade Review

What is the point of Mtn Dew Spiked? It calls itself "spiked," but not with alcohol but with prickly pear juice- a more appropriate name would be "Mtn Dew Contains," with following text that reads "contains prickly pear juice. Its can is quite attractive, despite its company history, however, the text begins to coagulate towards the bottom of the can.

The taste is astonishingly pleasant, its terse lemon flavor explodes out of the can and onto our palate, with the pear introducing an earthy underbelly to the experience. The trademark of a good lemonade is that little sweetness that builds in the back of your throat as you sip, and this Spiked variety nails that. Thanks to sugar, agave syrup, and stevia, saccharinity avoids the pitfalls of the Mtn Dew-trademark syrupiness and stevia's organic bitterness. Utilizing actual lemon juice, as well as the can-publicized prickly pear, there is surprising depth to this cloudy yellow elixir. But carbonation here is a dud, even on first sip my tongue was completely unimpressed. Its listless effervescence is a massive letdown; this is a flavor with moxie and verve, one that demands its bubbles to be as brisk.

Calories clocks in at 140, more than the brand's Kickstart line, but not unheard of for a sixteen ounce drink. Caffeine comes in at a modest seventy two milligrams, an unfortunately low amount. In the end, Mtn Dew Spiked Lemonade is a tasty drink, but there are a few execution errors that prevent it from being a home run.
