Mountain Dew Red was the first flavor variant on the Mountain Dew line. Its tagline was "Fruit flavored Mountain Dew."
Released only in 1988, Mountain Dew Red saw a test release in regions of Alabama. During its one-year run, a zero-calorie variant of it was also released - Diet Mountain Dew Red. Both were discontinued that same year.
Because Red was around for such a short time, very little is known about it. It was described on the can as being "Fruit Flavored" and was red in color.
- Due to Red being discontinued the same year it was created, it is hardly known of, and very rarely seen. The pictures on here could be the only ones taken.
- Despite their similar names, Red and Code Red have different flavoring, and are not related.
- In the popular musical "Be More Chill", Mountain Dew Red is the only thing able to disable the "SQUIP", a supercomputer chip inside someone's brain. (and normal mountain dew or "mountain dew green" activates them). However, in the book and non-musical stage play, Code Red deactivates ("dissolves") the SQUIP.
