Long time readers (why) will remember that I have a thing about trying whatever random new soda people are trying to sell. I am positive that some day this will result in me drinking “Poison Death Pain Clear Shasta” and bring me into some kind of new level of pain and hospitalization but for the time being it is mainly only attempting to kill my taste buds.
The new blue Mountain Dew kind of tastes like someone left a freeze-pop in the a medical lab long enough for it to absorb all kinds of cough-medicine brand after taste. I am pretty sure that none of that sounds good or worth buying but the truth is that after the first sip my tongue was so angry it just refused to taste the bad part anymore. And in all honesty I can sort of get behind a blue freeze-pop caffeine based drink.
