Previously, in several countries outside the US, Mountain Dew contained no caffeine.
However, it was reported that at the beginning of 2012, places like Canada now sell caffeinated mountain dew as the principal product. Canada used to have a regulation that prevented the sale of non-cola sodas containing caffeine.
Within the US and elsewhere, PepsiCo does make a caffeine-free version.
Besides caffeine, Mountain Dew contains a high amount of sugar. In fact, one 16 fl oz bottle of Mountain Dew has more sugar than 2 Snickers candy bars.
