Mountain Dew (currently stylized as ᴍtn ᴅew) is the main drink in the Mountain Dew line, and is commonly referred to as the "original" flavor.

History

Main article: Mountain Dew Timeline

Mountain Dew's first lemon-citrus formula was developed back in 1940 by Barney and Ally Hartman, whom were beverage bottlers in Tennessee. It was first distributed in 1954. In 1958, Bill Bridgforth created an improved formula for the drink by merging the existing formula with his Lemonade soda.

It was in 1964 when PepsiCo acquired the brand and production rights of Mountain Dew, allowing them to bottle and distribute it across the country.

Mountain Dew has lasted through each generation since, and has evolved with each, as seen in its series of packaging/logo changes over the years. The drink has since spawned an entire line of products, each with it's own flavor or theme; and has launched numerous campaigns and promotions to reach out to its increasingly huge fanbase.

In 2012, Mountain Dew Canada changed the name of this flavor to "Citrus Charge", making Canada the first country to have a different name for the original flavor of Mountain Dew.

Mountain Dew has also been sold in India under the name "Mountain Dew Neon" and sold alongside the regular flavor. Despite the name, Mountain Dew Neon is the same flavor as regular Mountain Dew and the only differences lie in packaging and marketing.

Description

Original Mountain Dew is a mix of various citrus flavors. Its color is a common debate, but it is widely accepted to be yellow-green, and comes packed in green-tinted bottles.
