SPOTTED: Mtn Dew Purple Thunder (Circle K Exclusive)

Mtn Dew Purple Thunder  Circle K Exclusive

Mtn Dew has a new store-exclusive flavor — Purple Thunder. It follows the still-Dollar-General-exclusive Maui Burst and the one-time Speedway-exclusive Spark (which was available at other retailers earlier this year). Purple Thunder is a Dew with a blast of berry plum. When I look at its purple color, I can’t help but dream of Mtn Dew Pitch Black. Yes, yes, yes, the beloved grape-flavored Dew was much darker. But I see purple, and Pitch Black is all I can think of. Anyhoo, Purple Thunder is rolling out to Circle K stores now. It’s available in 20-ounce bottles and on Polar Pop fountains. (Thanks to Mountain Dew and Circle K for the samples and info.)

  1. I really like it. Tried both the fountain version, and I’m drinking the bottled version right now. It’s kind of like if Pitch Black and Voltage were mixed together, but with a plum aftertaste instead of grape.

  2. They sent you samples Marvo? Lucky!

    Closest Circle K to me is about an hour and a half away. Worth the drive?

  3. Tried this on Tuesday when I stopped at a Circle K here in Colorado Springs and got the fountain version. LOVED IT.

    1. Excellent! I was wondering if Holidays were going to have this. I remember some months ago they missed out on a Circle K exclusive Frito Lay snack.

  4. I think it was pretty good, but nothing exceptional as far as other Dew flavors go. Better, yet similar, to Pitch Black imho. Forgot to look for the fountain version but I’ll get that soon to compare.

  5. Must be a regional release. Tried 4 Circle K’s in central NJ, and none of them had it and the cashiers hadn’t heard about it.

    1. I hope we have it here (Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky!) The is the first limited time that I’ve really felt like seeking out since Major Melon.

      Sidenote: I think this is the first new MTN Dew post in who knows how long that hasn’t just simply had a chorus of “Meh. At least it’d be a good mixer.” 🙂
