The Dew Review: Part 1

I can't remember exactly how it started, but there's a running joke in my Dungeons & Dragons group that I love Mountain Dew (also known as MTN DEW). And, as I tend to do, I leaned into the joke. For a while now, it's been my Quest to try every flavor of Mountain Dew out there. This is my mountain to climb.

If you're unaware, Mountain Dew comes out with a truly astounding amount of flavors. I swear it seems like I find a new one every time I go into the grocery store. Recently, I found the flavor...Fruit Quake

That's right--Mountain Dew with "fruitcake flavor." Let's dive in.

Color: As you can tell by the photo to the left, the Fruit Quake flavor is red, but not quite as red as the Code Red flavor. 

Smell: Mountain Dew Fruit Quake has a fruity, spicy smell. I don't know how to describe it better than that. There is some fruit, and there is some spice!

Taste: Unsurprisingly, this tastes like...fruit-punchy Mountain Dew along with a sprinkling of spices. Although I'm not great at identifying flavors (lol), the closest I can think of is the spice is nutmeggy, sort of like an apple pie. Basically, it tastes like stepping into a Christmas store. Make of that what you will!

Verdict: Better than I expected! I had had dinner right beforehand because I assumed being full wouldn't bother me and I wouldn't want to drink much. However, I found myself sipping this quite a bit during our D&D session. I'm not sure I'd finish an entire bottle, but...I give MTN DEW FRUIT QUAKE a solid 6 out of 10!

I never actually promised I'm a good food/drink critic! But maybe you'll stick around for part 2, whenever it comes. :)
