Mountain Dew Wants to ‘Kickstart’ Your Breakfast
Forget coffee or orange juice — Mountain Dew is about to become part of a balanced breakfast.
Later this month, Pepsi will begin selling a new breakfast drink with Mountain Dew called Kickstart.
The beverage will contain 5% juice as well as vitamins and a little caffeine. Technically, Kickstart isn’t considered an energy drink because it doesn’t have as much caffeine as Monster or Red Bull. It’s also not considered a soda, either, because of the juice it contains (so, if it’s not an energy drink and it’s not soda, and it’s not quite juice, exactly what is it?).
Kickstart will be sold in 16-ounce cans and come in flavors such as orange citrus and fruit punch. It will hit shelves on February 25th. Maybe you could pair it with some Chicken and Waffles potato chips?
