Mountain Dew Pitch Black was introduced as a limited edition flavor during the 2004 Halloween season. A sequel with a sour bite came out the following year. Out of all the discontinued Mountain Dew flavors, the original Pitch Black is the only one I yearn for. But I’m not alone. Whenever we post something about Mountain Dew there’s usually a comment that says something like, “I wished they’d bring back Pitch Black.”
Well, my fellow Mountain Dew Pitch Black fans, Mountain Dew Pitch Black is back.*
Yes, that’s an asterisk and it’s not the good kind of asterisk.
*Mountain Dew is bringing back Pitch Black in limited quantities and you’ll have to enter a sweepstakes to have a chance to win some.
The sweepstakes will begin on Thursday, December 3 at 9 a.m. Eastern Time via the Mountain Dew Facebook page and will run through Saturday, December 5, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Fans can enter the sweepstakes by commenting why they want Pitch Black on the sweepstakes posts using the hashtags #WeWantPitchBlack and #Sweeps. Fans will have three chances to enter (once per day) and 1,050 lucky fans will win a 15-pack case of Mountain Dew Pitch Black.
