Today while browsing soda at Walmart, I found three new flavors of Mountain Dew. Apparently they’re having a “Dewmocracy” campaign. Fans can go online or send a text and vote for their favorite flavor. I guess the flavor with the most votes then becomes permanent.

So I tried Typhoon first, which is a fruit punch flavored Mountain Dew. I thought it was delicious! Having not tried the others yet, I assumed it would be the flavor getting my vote.

Then I tried Whiteout, which is a “smooth citrus” Mountain Dew. Oh. My. Goodness. It is delicious. It’s even better than Typhoon, so I guess Whiteout is getting my vote.

I have not yet tried “Distortion”, which is a Dew with lime flavoring. It’s the flavor I find least intriguing, and I have a feeling I won’t like it better than Typhoon or Whiteout.

Incidentally, Walmart was selling 12-packs of cans for $4.38. Right below it they had 4-packs of cans for a dollar. Uh yeah, the 4-packs are a much better deal. I’ll take 12 cans for $3, thank you very much!

Mountain Dew at Piggly Wiggly

There sure are a lot of ways to buy Mountain Dew at Piggly Wiggly.


You can get 2-liter bottles!


6-packs of 24 ounce bottles!


24-packs of cans!


12-packs of cans!

You can also get 20 ounce bottles from the cooler by the cash registers, but I didn’t take a picture of that ‘cause I didn’t want to get any funny looks or explain why I was taking pictures.


You can also get a can of Dew from this vending machine outside.


Or you can get a 20 ounce bottle from this vending machine!

You know what’s stupid though? A 20 ounce bottle of Dew inside the store costs $1.59. A 20 ounce bottle outside the store costs $1.25. A 12 ounce can outside costs 50 cents. So between those three choices, the cheapest option is actually cans from the vending machine outside. You can get two cans for a buck. Not only is that a quarter cheaper, but you get 4 extra ounces.

Your soda prices make no sense, Piggly Wiggly!

Say hello to my empty Mountain Dew bottle. Just moments ago, this bottle was full and brimming with energy and life. And then it was poured down the mouth of a man desperately seeking to quench his thirst.

The future of this bottle, whom I shall call Dewey, is bleak. In a short time Dewey will be carelessly cast into a large recycling dumpster where he will lay in the cold, damp, darkness for days. 

After a few days pass, a large truck will come and fetch Dewey and all of his recyclable friends. He will be taken to a processing plant where he will be bathed in harsh chemicals. He will then be crushed, smashed, shredded to bits and melted until Dewey is no longer even a bottle.

Farewell Dewey. I’d wish you well, but we all know that won’t do any good.
