Pitch Black II was a Mountain Dew flavor released for a limited time during the Halloween season in 2005. It was the sequel to 2004's grape-flavored Pitch Black. Its tagline was "A blast of grape flavor with a sour bite with other natural flavors."


Pitch Black II used the exact same dark purple, grape-flavored formula as the original Pitch Black, but with a "a real person bite" added. Many describe it as tasting like candy, adding to its Halloween theme.


  • Pitch Black II is one of six grape Mountain Dew flavors. (See "Related Flavors" in the infobox above). With the re-release of Pitch BlackSupernova & Typhoon in the Back by Popular DEWmand promtion, it's possible that Pitch Black II might be brought back to shelves in the future along with other discontinued flavors.
  • Pitch Black II has not brought back to stores since 2005, until Halloween 2017, where exclusive Circle K gas stations and Convenience stores held the flavor in Icee form, alongside Pepsi Salted Caramel.
  • Pitch Black II is the only sequel to a soda that Mountain Dew has ever made.
