Code Red is a Mountain Dew flavor variant. It was released in 2001, and was the first attempt at a Mountain Dew flavor variant since Red failed during 1988. Code Red was very successful, increasing overall Mountain Dew sales by 6% in its first year and leading to the creation of multiple other flavors. Its tagline is "DEW with a rush of cherry flavor".
Mountain Dew Code Red is a cherry flavored soda, and as its name suggests, it is red in color. In New Zealand and Australia, Code Red is berry flavored.

Energised Code Red
In 2014, Code Red was released as a limited edition flavor in Australia, but using the Mountain Dew Energised formula. Just like the New Zealand Variant, this has a Berry flavor instead of a Cherry one. The flavor was available from April to September of that year.
Code Red was featured alongside Voltage, Supernova and White Out in Canada's DEWmocracy in 2013. Despite being in Canada before, it lost to Voltage, landing in second above White Out and Supernova, in direct order.
Code Red returned with White Out and Supernova in the 2014 DEWmand promotion, and it beat Supernova and White Out. Code Red was launched as a permanent flavor in 591ml bottles and 355ml 12 can cases on September 2, 2014.
