Mountain Dew is a popular citrus-flavored carbonated drink - stylized as Mtn Dew, and manufactured by PepsiCo.

The drink comes in a multitude of flavors and serving sizes and special editions.

Mountain Dew Variations

Previously, in several countries outside the US, Mountain Dew contained no caffeine. From 2012 this changed, with countries like Canada selling caffeinated Mountain Dew as the principal product.

Within the US and elsewhere, PepsiCo does make a caffeine-free version.

Besides caffeine, Mountain Dew contains a high amount of sugar.
