QUICK REVIEW: Mtn Dew Ice Cherry

Mtn Dew Ice Cherry

What is Mtn Dew Ice Cherry?

The latest concoction from Mountain Dew’s burgeoning “Ice” line, Ice Cherry takes everything you love about cherry soda, mixes it with a little of that Mountain Dew magic and then turns up the ice, I suppose. Oh, and it’s clear too, which is a bit weird. Kinda makes you wonder what its larger gameplan is with all this Ice stuff, doesn’t it?

How is it?

Like a cherry Laffy Taffy that’s been your pocket for way too long or an illegal helping of pure ICEE white cherry syrup, Mtn Dew Ice Cherry tastes like a bottle full of melted fake cherries. But that’s not a bad thing, just something you have to take in small doses due to its incredible sweetness.

With its strong cherry flavor and light carbonation, it might remind some of cherry-flavored Alka-Seltzer. Those people, like me, who’ve been known to drop about five or six tablets in their glass at a time, will love this.

Is there anything else I need to know?

I thought the sugar would be through the roof, but 41 grams doesn’t seem all that bad, does it? This Ice variant contains high fructose corn syrup, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose and no real sugar per se, but all that fake sugar can’t be good for you, can it? Oh well. 41 grams collectively doesn’t seem all that bad.

While not as mind-numbingly delicious as Pitch Black but way better than that DEW.S.A. dreck, Mtn Dew Ice Cherry falls somewhere in-between, leaning a little more on the plus side of the bracket.

  1. I just finished off a 12 pack bought a week and a half ago.YUK is the best word that describes this mixture. Now, I love MD Code Red-Live Wire-Baja Blast, and buy a 12 pack every other week or so. This new flavor has IMO zero to do with anything Mountain Dew. This is straight out a cherry lime soda, with a weird aftertaste of artificial sweetener. Now, when I would drink one, yeah, it was good, but it is one of those flavors that you can only drink one in any sitting.Would I buy again? Ehhh, nope, not with so many better flavors from Pepsi-Mountain Dew.
    However, I did NOT try this as a mixture with my Chivas, or Captain Jack, sooooo, might have to buy another 12 pack and see if my semi-rant here can be changed.. DC4ler

    1. But you’re review for dewSA was 8 out of 10 and this 7 out of 10. They are trying to get us used to lower sugar with these lines.. bleh
