Solar Flare is a Mountain Dew flavor variant available in fountain machines exclusively at U.S. and Canadian 7-Eleven Stores. In 2015 and 2016, Solar Flare was pulled from most 7-Elevens. Even though it is still at some locations, it was disappearing little by little. However, some 7-Elevens in the U.S. still carried the drink and are even receiving newer logos on their fountains. As of 2018, Solar Flare is still sold at some 7-Elevens because of good sales. Its tagline is "DEW with a Blast of Tropical Punch."


Mountain Dew Solar Flare is a fruit punch flavored soda with a red-orange color. The chemical flavor of aspartame served as the aftertaste after the initial flavor quickly fades.

Solar Flare Slurpee

Mountain Dew Solar Flare was only available in 7-Eleven fountains. The Slurpee variation appeared with the tagline "NEW! DEW with a Blast of Tropical Punch only at 7-Eleven". It was released to Canada in August 2015.

Philippines Release

Mountain Dew Solar Flare was released to the Philippines on September 28th 2016 for a limited time at participating 7-Eleven fountain machines. If you bought it, you could win various prizes such as a new smartphone, a drone, or a bicycle. The promotion ended on November 22nd of that year.
