REVIEW: Limited Edition 2020 Mtn Dew VooDEW

Limited Edition 2020 Mtn Dew VooDEW Mystery Flavor


If you don’t want to know what the 2020 edition of Mtn Dew VooDEW tastes like, since it’s a mystery flavor, I’d suggest you do not scroll down. Although, there’s an excellent chance what my taste buds think is absolutely wrong. Because last year’s Mtn Dew VooDEW mystery was revealed to be candy corn, which many drinkers didn’t guess correctly.

But if you still want to know what this year’s Mtn Dew VooDEW could be, follow the list of Mtn Dew VooDEW’s ingredients, which give no hints to what it could be.

Carbonated water.

High fructose corn syrup.

Citric acid.

Natural and artificial flavor.

Sodium benzoate.

Gum arabic.


Sodium citrate.

Glycerol ester of rosin.

Calcium disodium EDTA.


Acetate isobutyrate.

Limited Edition 2020 Mtn Dew VooDEW Mystery Flavor Closeup

So I understand VooDEW’s opaque white color helps with the mysteriousness. Kind of a hint when there’s color involved. I also think the cloud-like hue makes it look like there’s a ghost in a glass. Though, a clear DEW would’ve been even more mystery-like. That’s something PepsiCo should look into next year. Let me know what you think, PepsiCo. Even though I’m pretty sure no one there will read this. So that’s what this year’s VooDEW tastes like to me.

Oh, I didn’t share my guess, you say? As I’ve done with previous mystery flavors, it’s hidden in the paragraph above using the simplest cryptography.

Even though I think it tastes (and smells) like what I’ve hidden in the paragraph above, I’m probably wrong. Because some folks believed last year’s VooDEW flavor was what I think this year’s is. Since 2019’s version ended up being candy corn, I imagine this one is also supposed to be something sweet related to the fall season. Maybe it’s Candied Yams Dew, Pumpkin Pie Dew, or Caramel Apple Dew, and my taste buds are completely broken.

Whatever the flavor ends up being, it’s wonderful. Although, if this was in a blank can, I wouldn’t be able to tell it’s a Mountain Dew variety. It’s definitely worth trying if you love mysteries or the particular food item I believe it tastes like.

  1. I think at first it tastes like last year’s (caramel) then has a weird finish which I think is apple. I’m pretty sure it’s caramel apple.

    1. idc what pepsico officially said about last years being candy corn…i hate candy corn with a passion and loved the soda as it smelled and tasted just like skittles, so if this year also smells and tastes like skittles that will be a disappointment as i was hoping for a new flavor

      1. Rare and hard to find limited edition, for a national brand food?

        Dollar General, for the last few years now. MAN they must be ripping themselves a new one to get these contracts just to increase foot traffic? Or do these companies use ot to sell to a smaller market nationwide as a test.

        1. I’m in Washington and found this last year at a Gas station and Safeway. You need to keep in mind a lot of people go to the same grocery stores and don’t go to a bunch of stores to hunt for an item. Also if it’s exclusive Implusive Buy would mention it.

  2. I got a pretty distinct bubble gum flavor when I tried it. My friends got more of a creamsicle taste.

  3. Ya’ll know “skittles” isn’t a flavor, right? That’s like saying it tastes like a Bomb Pop.

    1. Bang did it. Their Star Blast tastes like a bomb pop. And their Radical Skadattle tastes like Skittles.

      1. Sorry, I mentioned the wrong Bang flavor. I meant to say Purple Kiddles tastes like Skittles.

    2. Skittles is a flavor when you got a mouth full of those rainbow colored concoction flavor.
      Mt. Dew also had a flavor called LIBERTY BREW, tasted like a suicide flavored pop you would create at burger. king. Almost every thing mixed but the water tea’s and diet(for most).

  4. I think it tastes and smells exactly like skittles as well. No flavor in particular. I know a lot of people are saying it might be caramel apple, but I just don’t get that ?????

  5. I’m 100% sure it is Skittle flavor. Look at the colors of the can. They are the same color as skittles candy. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Purple. Combined you get the mystery Voo Dew flavor. There’s also the letters “Candy Fruit” hidden within the branches of the tree on the can. Candy+ fruit= Skittles. Taste the rainbow! ??????

    1. You nailed it on the colors. The 2019 edition was also the color of the candy it was emulating.

    2. Those aren’t letters, those are words. Also, there is no Orange on the label…but it does taste like Skittles.

  6. Perhaps putting the words “candy fruit” (which I do not see at all, either on the bottle or can) is a ploy to mess with your taste buds? A trick to make you think you taste Skittles perhaps? At the very first taste, I thought it was cotton candy flavor, but then the Pepsi guy who delivers to the store I work at said it tasted like Skittles. Now it tastes like Skittles to me! As long as someone doesn’t say it tastes like a T-bone steak, I will now have to say it does indeed taste like a mouthful of Skittles. Or does it? AUGH!

  7. Your tastebuds aren’t broken! Just so happens my 5 yr old had a bag a skittles the week prior to purchasing this voo dew! I took a drink and couldn’t place it but I guessed sweet tarts not being sure. My 5 yr old took a sip and immediately said skittles! Once he said it it became very clear that this is absolutely the answer! Definitely skittles!

  8. Found at a Maverik gas market in Arizona. Tastes like sweet tarts or sour (patch kids?) something. The jury is out on this one. Two 20 fl. Oz bottles for $3 wasn’t too awful ???
