Typhoon was first tested alongside multiple other new flavors in a tour that stopped in 17 American cities in 2009. Taste testers were to give their input, and at the end of the tour, three flavor finalists were chosen.

Then, they were released to the public on April 19, 2010 as White Out, Distortion, and , and drinkers were to try all three and vote on which they preferred. Voting ended in June, and white out was announced to be the winner, with in second place, holding 40% of the votes.
