Solar Flare is a Mountain Dew flavor variant available in soda fountain machines exclusively at the United States, and Canadian 7-Eleven stores. In 2015, It became region-specific which had Solar Flare pulled from most of the 7-Elevens in the United States. Even though it is still at some locations, it was disappearing little by little. However, some of the 7-Elevens in the United States still carried the drink and still even sold, in addition to even receiving newer logo labels on their soda fountains. Its tagline is "DEW with a Blast of Tropical Punch."


On April 22nd, 2014, PepsiCo filed a trademark name, calling it "Mtn Dew Solar Flare".

Solar Flare was first officially released in soda fountain machines exclusively at the United States 7-Eleven stores in the summertime of May 2014.

In various dates in 2015 - 2018, in the United States and Canada. It was suddenly and unexpectedly appeared that Solar Flare became region-specific in 2015, as many areas across the United States began noticing that it was pulled from many 7-Elevens, and surprisingly still remained available in some 7-Elevens locations in the United States. With this happening, that all Canadian 7-Eleven stores have been removed from its soda fountains and Slurpee machines. Even though it is still at some locations in the United States, it was disappearing little by little.

As of May 2018, Solar Flare was still carried, and being sold at some of the United States 7-Eleven locations because of good sales, in addition of even receiving newer logo labels on their soda fountains.

On June 29th, 2018, Avery Heaney TV posted a vlog video on his YouTube channel that he went of all of his 7-Eleven locations as a wild goose chase. After he went to all of his 7-Eleven locations, it was unfortunate that he didn't found out as Solar Flare didn't appear in all of the 7-Eleven locations that he went to. This is possible that Solar Flare was presumably discontinued until we have further information.


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.

Canada Release

In August 2015, Solar Flare was later introduced in Canadian 7-Eleven soda fountains, alongside with the Slurpee version that appeared with a tag of "NEW! DEW with a Blast of Tropical Punch only at 7-Eleven". It became discontinued in Canada later on.
