REVIEW: Mountain Dew Dewmocracy Flavors (SuperNova, Revolution, and Voltage)

Read a review of the 2010 DEWmocracy flavors here.

Imagine having the power to make a difference and to change the world in some way. Some of you might be saying that one person can’t make a difference, but I’m here to tell you that one person can, but if you recruit more people, it’s a whole lot easier and if you’re sneaky enough, you might not need to do anything at all and make all those people you recruited do all the work. But if you don’t want to go through that trouble, you can make a difference by voting…for a sugary, carbonated, and caffeinated beverage.

Welcome to Dewmocracy.

Mountain Dew is letting the people decide the new Dew among three flavors: SuperNova, Revolution, and Voltage. Of course, this is slightly retarded since all three flavors are being produced and sold in stores, so technically they are ALL already new. Someone might say that Dewmocracy is about choosing the new permanent Dew flavor, and I would say to them that, it maybe permanent, but technically the winner won’t be new.

The Dewmocracy website, where you can vote for your favorite flavor, keeps track of the votes throughout the United States by state. The whole thing reminds me of all the CNN news coverage and graphics on Election Night, except without Wolf Blitzer’s beard to scare me. Just like American Idol, I’m sure more people will vote in this election than the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Some people might say that elections like these are teaching children the importance of voting. I say nay to those people, for I believe that the elections for Dewmocracy and American Idol teach the importance of voting…for things that don’t fucking matter.

I felt Revolution was the worst, SuperNova was the best, and Voltage was the nerd with the hairy chest. Looking at the Dewmocracy website, my vote for Mountain Dew SuperNova has helped it gain 3% of the vote in my state of Hawaii, which means I am supporting the Ralph Nader of Mountain Dew.

None of the Dewmocracy flavors were repulsive and each of them were sweeter than all the Care Bears holding hands while skipping across a rainbow and singing “Joy to the World.” I enjoyed SuperNova the most because of its unusual strawberry melon flavor, which gave it a nice fruity taste, almost girly-alcohol-drink-ish. It also tasted like a strawberry lemonade, which is weird since it doesn’t have any citrus flavor. Voltage’s raspberry-citrus flavor was good and I thought if Mountain Dew were to make another blue-colored Dew (Taco Bell exclusive Baja Blast was the first blue Dew), this flavor should be it. Finally, the wild berry flavor of Mountain Dew Revolution was decent, but personally wild berries aren’t my thing, because they’re too wild for me.

But my voice is just one and many of you probably disagree with me, so if you want to participate and get an unhealthy amount of high fructose corn syrup, try all three flavors, and vote at the Dewmocracy.

  1. I’d vote for a Mountain Dew with double the caffeine and no high fructose corn syrup. I think the only semi-mainstream producer that doesn’t use the stuff is Jones Soda, though.

  2. I was just about to go and google for this because I wanted to read about the flavors and then I came here and it was here. Amazing. You read my mind again.

  3. Seriously! Do we really need all of these mixed up soda flavors?? Wasn’t soda crazy enough with just the basic cola, lemon-lime, rootbeer and prune juice (yeah, what do you think Dr. pepper is) flavors.

    You kids these days and your kooky sodas and untied shoelaces and purple hair. Back in my day, we were forced to come up with our own drinks, like Sprunch. We had to walk 7 miles, uphill, in the snow, with no shoes just to get it

  4. Mountain Dew is pumping out too many damn flavors! I can’t keep up with these new Amps, and now they try this on me! Needs a Freedom flavor, I say.

    Nothing tastes better than freedom.

  5. Damn we need that stuff here in europe.

    Only thing i can get here is Normal Dew, if i’m lucky, once in a while i can get hold of a supply of Code Red.

    I would love to taste these

  6. we all know what happens when girly-alcohol drinks are consumed. way to rock the vote, did p diddy force you into this one?

  7. “None of the Dewmocracy flavors were repulsive and each of them were sweeter than all the Care Bears holding hands while skipping across a rainbow and singing “Joy to the World.” ”

    Pure poetry! I almost spit out my bland Diet Coke Plus.

  8. Democracy makes angry bob angry. OK, angrier. Dewmocracy is democracy with a superfluous “W”. But democracy has already given us a superfluous “W”, so they’re the same thing. angry bob is reaching new levels of angry.

    angry bob votes for the Care Bears to hold hands and sing “Mama Told Me Not to Come”.

  9. I am such a sucker for blue drinks.. I really with they would bring back Pepsi Blue.

    I hope they come out with a diet version of these.

  10. Kylie is now in love with angrybob for suggesting that the care bears sing “Mama Told Me Not to Come”

  11. I like the voltage one the best, but srsly? Bring back my pitch black and call it a day! That stuff is awesome. I am sick of all these “limited edition” sodas.

    Overall, these are too damn sweet for my taste. Almost ridiculously so. They make a fab mixer with vodka/rum though.

  12. oh well, now I must stop cruising the Asian markets and go find these so I too can vote for my favorite overly sweet caffeine concoction.. odd how I think these are ok but those energy drinks are death… ha ha.
    Kylie.. were I not already madly in love with Marvo.. I too would be in angry bob’s camp, but then I also have a sweet spot for chucks fetching hairdo.. OH HELL.. just call me TIB tramp!! Now, where is luckinflux….?

  13. hey! whats the deal? no gravatar??? Are you blocking pg rated gravatars??? IM hurt!

  14. no lie to what alisha said- superb mixers. because what says true love like mass caffeine and alcoholic joy? nothing else. that’s what. even more fun? mixing all three flavors o’ democracy together and wincing at the bastardly sweet-tart explosion and then giving in to the caffeinated chokehold.

  15. Bikerbabeee- I also have a love for marvo that is so strong, I don’t feel the need to remind him of it daily. He knows! He understands! He feels it!

    What can I say ? We are all TIB tramps.

  16. First the cherry, then the orange, now this, argh. I’m so glad I kicked my Dew habit a few years back.

  17. Really, Code Red can not be topped. They took the perfect blend of caffeine and sugar from the original Dew, then added the hyper-active punch of Red Dye Number 5. That’s it. Done. These new Dews may be better than anything else out there, but they are vying for the #2 spot.


  19. I checked back in to see if Marvo has replied to our comments (I love the replies, I’m such a dork. A dork who reads this site on her blackberry while smoking her cigarettes outside which explains why I’ve commented way too many times in this thread)

    Since, I’m here I figured, I’d go ahead, and, express, my love for, odd comma, usage,.

  20. Chuck – Mountain Dew Dew? Do the Double Dew!

    Luna – Pfff…that’s nothing. I get that before I go to sleep.

    Josh Mc – Sorry, I picked SuperNova.

    Aarika – Or maybe you read mine. What am i thinking now?

    Kylie – Pfff…basic cola, lemon-lime, and root beer are the missionary positions of soda flavors.

    Zach – Mmm…Freedom. I love how it fucking tastes and smells.

    Bokkie – Unfortunately, I think all these flavors are only available in the US.

    jon – Diddy told me to Vote or Die, but only did so after I drank too many girly-alcohol drinks.

    Rachel – Diet Coke Plus is meant to be spit out.

    angry bob – Calm down, angry bob. I’ll go find some Care Bears and get them to sing “Mama Told Me Not to Come.”

    Lord Jezo – No, it has to be full flavored. Do the Diet Dew is Dumb.

    Red Icculus – What can I say, I’m a new product whore, I suck them all up.

  21. Alisha – I second your request to bring back Pitch Black. Well only a few more months and they’ll bring it back for Halloween.

    jennifer marks/chris jones – VOLTAGE!!!

    Bikerbabeee – What about Ace? Don’t forget about, Ace. As for the Gravatar, I’m not sure what’s wrong, but it wasn’t me. I allow everything up to Rated-R gravatars.

    betsy – I would like someone to mix all flavors of Mountain Dew together and drink it. Oh wait, I guess I could do that.

    Kcdeath – As many as we are willing to buy.

    Kylie – I think I feel yours more because you just happen to live closer.

    Jesse – I’m waiting for banana Dew.

    Melrose – I dew enjoy Code Red, but I wish more places would carry it.

    Henry – AWESOME!!!

    Kylie – Some women say they need to smoke a cigarette after reading TIB…to get the bad taste out of their mouth.

  22. Marvo – Don’t make angry bob happy – you wouldn’t like him that way.

    Kylie, Bikerbabeee, and any anonymous lurking admirers – angry bob likes his women the way he likes his coffee; cold, bitter, and in a “Big Sky Country” mug with a picture of a bear.

  23. Well, as an experienced Dew drinker…. :p i think that Revolution and Voltage taste pretty much the same. Supernova is the best, by my experience.

  24. I thougt they would be delicous but I found out that the voltage flavor was the best of all three.
